What kind of people live in mobile homes? This is a question I am asked almost every single day. Manufactured homes are by no means my only area of focus, but I do represent more manufactured home buyers and sellers than a whole lot of agents out there. I guess this is the reason people have come to see me as an authority in this kind of housing, and why I get that famous question - "Who lives in a mobile home?". I've given it a lot of thought and really the best answer is "everybody". When I look back over the sixty or so manufactured houses I've helped people buy or sell in the last couple years (and the folks that call them home), I can honestly say every walk of life is represented. Blue collar, white collar, retirees, first time home buyers, growing families, corporate relocations, snow birds, and etc. etc. etc., they've all found a reason why a manufactured house was right for them. Sometimes I wonder if even more people would consider this housing option if their agent didn't believe manufactured houses were only for a "certain kind of buyer". Maybe one day every real estate agent will understand that all types of housing can be right for all kinds of buyers under the right set of circumstances. I think I'll know when that day gets here, because it'll be when agents stop asking me "Who lives in a mobile home?"
