Investing in Manufactured Homes

2 Replies

Does anyone have experience investing in manufactured homes? I am looking at some in my area, and depending on the demand, I could make it work. 

I’m wondering if there is any less demand for a manufactured home than a regular condo, Townhome or house. There are some lot fees in the neighborhood I am looking in, but the deal could still rent for more than the combined mortgage and lot fee amount. 

Again, I am taking all of this into consideration when running my numbers, but none of that matters if nobody wants a manufactured home. 

I can see both sides of the coin. On the one hand, there is a certain stigma that comes along with a manufactured home... on the other hand, it’s in a great neighborhood and the unit itself is brand new. 

Thanks for the help, BP.

Most of us know "manufactured home" means a mobile home.  Sometimes people mistake that term for "modular home" (home pre-fabricated in pieces and assembled).  You should clarify which one you're really interested in the responses would be more concise.
