Affordable decent housing is an on going issue which most communities are confronted with. For those looking for a new low maintenance home it can be a challenge to get a place for under $200K in the Bellingham Whatcom County area. Many folks look into the option of purchasing a manufactured home only to find out it can be difficult to find a lot to put it on. Mountian View Meadows in Everson (about 20 minutes from downtown Bellingham) has three fully serviced lots available for manufactured homes. These are large 10,000 sq.ft. lots within walking distance to groceries and schools. Prices range from $78,800 to $84,500. This small 4 lot plat backs up to the old Everson golf course so there's lots of open space and great views of the mountains and foot hills. So, if you've been looking for land to put a new manufactured home this may be your solution.
Oakwood Homes has a 1395 sq.ft. 3bed/2bath unit - the Firside 1 model - that's comes move in ready with all appliances, a 32" LCD HDTV with DVD player, and many other features for $78K.
