As an active adult, you have a wide choice of homes available to you across the USA in thousands of communities. One of these choices is manufactured homes.

What are Manufactured Homes?

Manufactured homes are homes which have been constructed in a factory and transported to the building site vs building from scratch on site. Almost 90% of the home is pre-made and transported to its location via trailers. In the past, owners of manufactured homes had a limited choice of size and style of homes. However nowadays you could not tell these homes apart from standard built homes and they are often preferred by homeowners due to price point and the variety of layouts, amenities and sizes. These homes are built under specifically designed guidelines set forth by the Federal Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Agency, thereby ensuring high standard quality products.
