The real estate market has been a little wild since Covid swept the nation. CoreLogic shows that the median US home price rose 18.1% in 2021. That’s a drastic increase from previous years and it’s mostly due to a housing shortage and a shift in what homebuyers want in a home.

If you’re planning to update or repair your mobile or manufactured home it’s smart to focus on projects that increase the value of your home and give you the best return on investment or ROI.

Home improvements that have a strategy behind them improve living areas and also ensure a good return on investment (ROI) when selling the house. This article highlights the best mobile home improvements based on their previous return on investment statistics.

1. Kitchen Remodels

The kitchen, commonly seen as the central part of a home, is one of the main selling features of a home whether it factory-built or site-built.

Giving an old kitchen a new look is fairly easy (but expensive) by replacing your old appliances with new ones. Replacing or just updating your mobile home cabinets and countertops is smart too.

Even smaller updates like changing handles or improving light fittings can show noticeable change in value. It is for making an area that not only works well but also looks nice, where families like to come together and cooking happens effortlessly.

2. Energy-Efficient Windows

Installing energy-efficient windows is a great mobile home improvement because you can lower your heating and cooling costs while also changing the look of your home.

3. Bathroom Renovations

Bathroom renovations like walk-in showers, towel warmers, and new vanities attract today’s homebuyers.

Even smaller improvements like changing taps, painting walls, or installing new light fixtures can convert an old bathroom into a calming place of rest.

4. Outdoor Living Spaces

Covid kept most of us home for months and gave us a chance to reconnect with nature so improving (or creating) outdoor living areas around your home has turned into a profitable improvement.

Building a deck or patio around your mobile home will cost but the return on investment is two fold – you get to add value to your home but also enjoy it for years. Best of all, outdoor living spaces doesn’t have to be fancy. A small area of stone or gravel can be inviting and profitable if you sell.

5. Smart Home Technology

There are tons of products that can turn any home into a ‘smart home.’ Things like clever thermostats that change temperature without instruction or advanced security systems that allow you to watch with your smartphone make a house more efficient and protected.

Smart lighting systems can save energy and help protect the home while also making it look good. It’s a win, win, win.

6. Roof Replacement

Taking away an old or damaged roof is not only a required repair, it is also one of the best mobile home improvements that can increase the value of your home. A new mobile home roofover improves the strength and appearance of a house while safeguarding it from weather harm.

The roofing materials available today come in many styles and colors, offering homeowners options to enhance their home’s look while making it stronger against harsh conditions. Even though the first expense might be big, considering the benefits in long run such as less risk of water damage and better insulation make it a good investment. Additionally, many times a fresh roof is an important factor for selling your house because it gives confidence to potential buyers about its state.

7. Hardwood Flooring

The appearance and atmosphere of a home can be considerably transformed with new floors.

New mobile home subflooring and floor covering like hardwood floors are more visually appealing, and they also offer an advantage in terms of cleaning and upkeep. They can withstand normal wear and tear while being low-maintenance too. Laminate flooring can be waterproof with still having the enduring charm of real wood.

8. Additional Insulation

Extra insulation is a smart investment because it will absolutely cut down energy expenses and improving comfort.

New mobile home insulation helps to keep an even temperature in the house, reducing the requirement for heating and cooling systems and thus decreasing energy usage. This improvement is especially attractive for potential buyers who care about environment issues nowadays, as they value sustainable characteristics that support saving energy.


The greatest improvements for mobile homes are ones that mix comfort with usefulness while also saving money. If you’re planning on selling your home it’s smart to understand what homebuyers are looking for and doing your best to give it to them. And it doesn’t have to cost a lot of money – a fresh coat of paint can add value.
