If you’re in the market for a new home, you want to consider all your options. One of those options being mobile homes. Typical on-site-built homes can be expensive, depending on where you live. Mobile homes make a great starter home if you’re looking to save money. Here’s everything you need to know about mobile homes.

  • Types – When you think of mobile homes, the typical cookie-cutter model may come to mind. However, these days, mobile homes come in all sorts of different models. You can get a home on the economy scale or on a luxury scale. Additionally, you can choose from a single-, double-, or triple-wide floor plan.
  • Transport & Hook Ups – A part of buying a mobile home is arranging transport. Once the mobile home is delivered, it will need to be installed, utilities will need to be hooked up, and the foundation will need to be set in place.
  • Cost – Mobile homes are known to be extremely affordable, which is what makes them appealing. Additionally, the cost of insurance on mobile homes compared to a traditional home is significantly lower.
  • Financing  – Financing for mobile homes is not like your typical home loans that you would apply for with a traditional home. It can be hard getting financing for single-wide homes, and double- and triple-wide homes could maybe go through a conventional loan.
