Living in a Mobile Home park is a lifestyle choice made by thousands of Californian’s. In an industry that was once viewed as lesser, this type of housing and these communities are starting to make a name for themselves as the best value for high quality, well-planned and secure living.
The mobile home, or manufactured home, itself is starting to boast high quality items that were once only featured in site built homes. Many of them with custom cabinetry and granite counter tops. These homes can have all the amenities a site built home has to offer and they cost 20-35% less.
Communities often offer more than most site built HOA’s , with many boasting security that patrols the grounds 24-7, some are even gated requiring a code or clicker to enter the community. This helps to provide a level of safety and protection that might not be offered in a site built community. Many of them also feature clubhouses, swimming pools, play grounds and tennis courts.
If all of this sounds great there are still a few things you must consider before making this choice. The space your home sits on may not be very large, if you have a dream of having a bunch of animals a mobile home community might not be right for you, but if the idea of little to no yard work appeals to you a mobile home community might be right up your ally.
Remember, mobile homes and manufactured housing communities are not for everyone but they could be perfect for you! It is your life and your choice and manufactured housing communities have a lot to offer.
