5 Budget-Friendly Mobile Homes For Sale This Month
Fully Furnished Waterfront Mobile Home for $29,900
This two bedroom, 2 bath mobile home is in a resort park in Alabama and is available completely furnished. It doesn’t offer the year in the listing, but it looks to be very well maintained home. The master bath is open into the bedroom, which was a popular feature in 1970 and 80’s mobile homes. It also has the glass inserts in the ceiling that help make the lower ceilings appear higher and the smaller rooms feel larger.
Vintage Mobile Home Makes Perfect Vacation Retreat for $8,749
This two bedroom Rembrandt mobile home in New York has light blue kitchen appliances! If you like your paneling and cabinets to be unpainted this is a great home (and that alone makes the home unique, you simply can’t find older mobile homes that haven’t been painted often).
This would be a very cool vacation home if you are a vintage mobile home fan (according to listing lot rent averages $1000 a year which is a steal compared to our unofficial national mobile home park lot rent census).

1966 Gorgeous Mobile Home for $19,000
This is a gorgeous updated two bedroom/2 bath mobile home located in a community in California. It features granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and new laminate flooring. To us, this is a perfect example of the potential that can be found in older mobile homes.
However, there is one major drawback to this particular home. The lot rent is over $1700 a month! When buying a mobile home in a community, it’s so important to take into account the lot rent. Budget-friendly mobile homes aren’t a good deal if the lot rent is more than a mortgage payment would be. However, there is a housing shortage in CA and well, you get to live in CA, so….
This month’s budget-friendly mobile homes are all less than $30,000. You can’t buy many used cars for that!

Hello, Nice article. Mobile home liveing (I own and live in a mobile home.) has two rather new problems. They are park space rent and credit scores. Mobile home park managers assume that anyone with a troubled credit report , must be a bad person and will refuse you to buy in a park. In Arizona a cedit report of 720 is required to be approved? A credit report only tells if you’ve had trouble paying past bills, yet it’s used for many things that make no sence such as insurance, jobs, rentals and mobile home parks. What are those thousands of people suppose to do? Live in a van with 30,000 in a sock?
We all know about mobile home lot rent and the tendency to not earn it. You solve that by overturning bad legislation so new parks can be funded and built. An easy fix if your politions were working for the people. David Creson. USN Retired
You are absolutely right, David. I hate the credit scoring system we have. Until they provide an easy way to repair errors and identity theft they should not be able to use those numbers.
I’ve mentioned this before a couple of times but I am not a fan of parks or communities. The ideal mobile home living situation is to own your own land but unfortunately, that isn’t possible for everyone. I wish states would protect tenants better and local governments would allow more parks. Too bad the manufactured housing industry is more worried about people using the term ‘mobile home’ than they are trying to protect their buyers.
Well said, I am from the land of enchantment New Mexico. I’d like to add to his point with the heightened amount of people who have poor credit due to medical reasons.
Great comment! That’s one of my biggest problems so good thinking! I was told that many places no longer consider medical bills when offering credit but I don’t know how true that is.
