Here are a few myths that we’ve debunked to help clear up some of the confusion surrounding manufactured homes and what you might have misheard.
MYTH: Manufactured homes are difficult to finance
FACT: Manufactured homes are treated the same as traditional stick-built buildings for financing. Mobile homes (which are not manufactured homes) are harder to secure financing due to their depreciation value. Manufactured homes are actually better than traditional homes to finance because of their shortened construction time.
MYTH: Manufactured homes don’t last
FACT: Manufactured homes became popular in the 1950s and the industry hasn’t slowed down since then. Many homes that were constructed in the 1950s are still around and have greatly increased in value sometimes even more so than traditionally built homes.
MYTH: Manufactured homes depreciate in value
FACT: Manufactured homes appreciate and gain value the same way traditional buildings do. Once a manufactured building is fully constructed, it is almost impossible to tell the difference between a manufactured and a stick built home.
MYTH: Manufactured homes all look the same
FACT: Manufactured homes can all be customized to look exactly how you want them to. There are hundreds of different designs to choose from and even more customizable features available. Manufactured homes make it easy to have a home with customizable options at an affordable price.
