  1. I want to buy a re-sale manufactured home already on land that is likely to appreciate over time. How do I determine the quality? How do I find out the make and model? I don’t want to become enamored with just the visual appeal and would like to know about the construction before making any offer. Some I’ve walked into feel hollow, floors seem cushy and sometimes sqeak. Is that normal? Your advice would be welcomed. Thank you.

    1. Hi Sal,

      It’s all about the bones. You want to find a higher end model that has the better construction (2×4 or 2×6 framing, high pitched roof, exterior sheathing, subflooring that hasn’t been touched by water). To do all that you will need to inspect the home very closely. Don’t get wrapped up in figuring out the make or model – a high-end Clayton home is better than a low-end Skyline (even though the reviews of the companies say differently). Just like cars, you have 4 major companies that release luxury models that cost more and lower quality cars that cost less.
      Click on the BUY section on the menu and scan through there. I’ve written a ton of articles about what to look for when buying a used home. Best of luck!

  2. So glad I found this site! We just purchased our first manufactured home. It is a 1979 Kit Royal Oaks, double wide. It appears like nothing has been updated. Very excited to see what we can do about that!! :)
