Should I consider buying a manufactured home?
My husband and I are in the "research phase" of trying to figure out what type of home purchase we should do. We are on a budget and today we went and looked at a few manufactured homes for sale in our area. They are brand new homes and are considerably more affordable. They have upgrades that we could never afford in our price range for a traditional build home. I have been researching the quality of manufactured homes and it seems either people love them or hate them, there isnt any in between. For our budget we could buy one of the nicer manufactured homes, land and still have some left over where as if we purchased a traditional built home we could only afford a mediocre home at best. Are manufactured homes good quality, energy efficient are they expensive to repair? Do they withstand weather better than they used to? (we live in northwest Kentucky along the Ohio river). Do they depreciate in value? And any other information would be so appreciated! Thanks so much and may God bless you!
