How Manufactured Housing Opens the Door to Homeownership

How Manufactured Housing Opens the Door to Homeownership

Main Banner - June 25 1

There is simply no substitute for owning your own home. Manufactured homes put the American Dream within reach for millions of families, providing an attainable, high-quality, and community-focused living experience. Roots Management Group is making this dream a reality with our Summer Blast Sales Event in the Phoenix, Arizona Metro area until 7/31/24. 

Attainable and Affordable 

Manufactured homes are often much less expensive than renting an apartment or purchasing a site-built home. The median household income of someone who lives in a manufactured home is around $35,000 – while the median household income of a site-built homeowner is around $76,000. This makes manufactured homes a practical and financially accessible option for many. 

Roots Management Group highlights this affordability with brand new homes for sale starting at $29,999 for a one-bedroom or $49,900 for a two-bedroom home, significantly lower than traditional site-built homes. This provides families and retirees with more homeownership options than ever before. 

Why are Manufactured Homes safe and a great investment?  

Unlike site-built homes, which are subject to differing state and local regulations, manufactured homes are built to a uniform federal preemptive code, the HUD Code. This code provides a single regulatory framework for the design and construction of manufactured homes, ensuring health, safety, energy efficiency, and durability standards. Manufacturers can ship homes across state lines and achieve economies of scale, delivering high-quality, affordable homes to millions. 

A Solid Investment 

According to the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI), Manufactured homes have been shown to provide the same appreciation and wealth-building attributes as site-built homes but at a much more affordable price. Studies show that the median value of manufactured homes appreciated similarly to site-built homes over five years from 2016 to 2021. This makes them a solid investment for long-term financial growth. 

MHI also notes that residents in manufactured homes are very happy, mainly due to manufactured homes' affordability, quality, and sense of community. According to recent data, 85% of new manufactured homebuyers are satisfied or very satisfied with their homes, and 72% would recommend living in a manufactured home to others. Residents value manufactured homes' affordability, quality, and sense of community. 

Key Features

These standards cover design, construction, strength, durability, transportability, fire resistance, and energy efficiency. Advances in construction technology mean that today’s manufactured homes often feature high-quality materials and finishes that rival traditional stick-built homes.
