Manufactured Homes

Mobile Homes transactions are just as complex as traditional homes sales.  When Buying or Selling YOUR Mobile Home, be sure to select a TOP Local Real Estate expert.

Are you thinking of buying a mobile home? Good for you: this is a great way to own your own home, but you need some help in making those mobile home buying decisions and perhaps WE can help with some suggestions.

First of all, depending on the size of your family you'll want to look at and also decide on if you want a single wide mobile home or perhaps a double wide or even large mobile home.

There are also expandables, ones that pull out and expand the home when in position on the lot.

The double wides are actually two single units that are towed to the site and then joined to make one large mobile home, thus it is called a double wide.

Sometimes when you purchase a mobile home the appliances, furniture and floor coverings are furnished, other times, the furniture and appliances are extra. Also sometimes you are charged extra for the steps with handrails to each of the doors, skirting to conceal the wheels, supports or concrete blocks, over the roof anchors for high wind area and other options.

Each of these options: furniture, appliances, etc. will be additional cost to the purchase of your new mobile home or in most cases the additional items will be expanding the original costs.

Most mobile homes or perhaps all will have to follow certain standards and you certainly need to look into these completely as they could cause problems. Be sure you have adequate insulation, adequate fire protection and that certain hazards are avoided such as lack of an outside fuel shutoff valve, modified furnaces, doors that are difficult to open, uneven support on the trailer. 

There are many considerations when buying a mobile home just as buying one already on a foundation or when you build a home.

You'll need to compare costs thru different dealers, find out if there is an additional charge to bring the mobile home to your site, also are there set up charges, etc. You'll need to have a plan for where you will park your mobile home also, buy your own land, put it in a trailer park, all of these expenses must be factored in before purchasing a mobile home.

You will for sure need to find out how many years you need to pay on the mobile home and certainly you need to know the rate of interest on the mortgage on the home and also inquire about the insurance on the mobile home, will it be included in the mortgage, in some cases that is required until you have a clear title to the mobile home. Also you need to see if the local and state taxes are included in your mortgage payment, remember when the insurance and the taxes are included in the note you will be paying interest on these additional expenses added to note yearly.

It is sure best to pay these separate on your own if the mortgage company will allow.

Testimonials

My wife and I would like to take this opportunity to recognize Linda Johnston who is with the office at CENTURY 21 All Aces Realty. We had been trying to sell our house in Palmetto for approximately 2 years. Prior to being introduced to Linda, we had used two other real estate agents who were quite ineffective in getting people to look at the house. As soon as we spoke to Linda, we were impresses with her enthusiasm and determination. She immediately gave us ideas on how to list the house to attract prospective buyers. When one idea didn't work, she was innovative and determined to come up with new ideas. Her personality was refreshing and she was always professional. We felt as though we were her only client, although we knew she had others. It was a pleasure working with her and we would recommend her to any seller or buyer. Craig & Felicia Himes
My experience with CENTURY 21 All Aces Realty was remarkable, but my experience with my Agent, Matthew Rotondo was even better. Matt’s willingness to work with my wife and I was truly amazing. Matt took a true interest in our needs and wants as a young couple. Knowing we did not have the money to buy a home that needed lots of work, Matt made sure to find us a home that was move in ready. When it came time to close on our dream home, the house needed a new roof. Matt came through again, he was able to get us our dream home at price we could afford with a new roof. Matt is just a genuine good guy, I don’t know many agents that would actually come over and help you move and work in the yard. Thanks again Matt for helping my family get the house of their dreams.
