The average home in Florida costs over $200,000. This price leaves many people without options. Although renting saves you from upfront costs, Floridians are paying around 44 percent of their income on rent each month. So, what options are left?
Buy a manufactured home. This option scares off many people, as they are imaging manufactured homes of the past. We’ve talked about 5 manufactured home myths that aren’t true, and it speaks volumes about the stigmas that people still have about these homes.
In the past, manufactured homes were more difficult to finance. Today, they are almost as easy as a site-built home, with large lenders like Wells Fargo offering manufactured home loans. With lending becoming easier, more people are realizing that a manufactured home might be the best path to home ownership.

Aside from affordability, new manufactured homes not only have value, but also have the ability to appreciate over time, making this a worthy investment for families and the retired alike.
