Look at an alternative to stick-built houses - Manufactured Homes!

By
Real Estate Agent with Ventura Property Shoppe DRE #01320372

Hi All!  My name is Lorraine and I am a Realtor.  I specialize in manufactured homes (mobile homes) in the Ventura County area.  I believe that an alternative to the traditional stick-built home is the manufactured home.  They are an excellent starter home - better than a condo in my estimation.  In a manufactured home you have your own individual space - you are not sharing walls with someone else. 

The only drawback that I see is the down payment to get into a manufactured home - but is it truly a drawback?  Thanks to the lending on manufactured homes always being tight, the manufactured home has not seen the decrease the traditional stick-built homes have had in value.  For any home older than 10 years old, the manufactured home industry has always required a 20% down payment. 

So I am here to talk about the alternative of manufactured homes (mobile homes).  In Ventura County they are mainly located in parks that contain a clubhouse, pool, different amenities for the home owners to use.  The parks are either for all-ages or limited to seniors (age 55 and over).  And the spaces in the parks can be owned by the owner of the manufactured home or by the park.  When the space is owned by the home owner, this give the mobile home a lot higher value.  When you rent the space, space rents here go from $300 per month up to over $1000 per month.

So how may I help you discover the world of manufactured homes?  Contact me with any questions by email at LorraineBurns@sbcglobal.net.  Or you may visit my web site at LorraineBurns.com.
