Let’s go ahead and dispel these three biggest lies that we hear all the time!

You ready, y’all?!

Lie Number One:


Mobile Homes Are Not Real Homes.

I hear this one all the time from folks who are not familiar with what mobile homes are and what they are not. Mobile homes that were built after 1976 have been held to strict building standards by the government agency HUD, just like that of stick and brick houses. This means that no home being built after June of 1976 can be approved for sale without the stamp of approval from HUD.

In my opinion, this puts mobile homes in the same category as regular stick and brick homes, right out of the shoe.

Lie Number Two:

Land Lease Communities Are Financial Rip Offs.

This one kills me!

Mobile homes on leased land require the owner of the home to pay a monthly fee each month to the park for usage of that land. This is called lot rent. Many times, lot rent covers the usage of the land, the water bill, the sewer bill, trash bill, the usage, upkeep and insurance of all the park amenities, such as the pool, and the residents’ own lawn care. These parks also do not have a CDD fee or an additional HOA payment for residents.

Now, all you negative Nancy’s out there, what do you pay each and every month both the time and money to get all that taken care of?

Lie Number Three:

Mobile Homes Fall Apart So Don’t Ever Buy One.

This one, is just plain foolish!

I have been in mobile homes that were built in the 1960s that were dropped off at the park directly from the factory and have been in much better condition than stick and brick homes built in the 2000s. Like with anything, the way to keep up with your mobile home and having it look nice for decades on end is to keep up with the routine maintenance. If you see something that is having a problem, look to get it inspected and immediately fixed, so you do not have a small problem grow into a huge disaster!

We will continue to discuss the routine lies and misunderstandings here in the mobile home space in order to help give you a better idea of what a mobile home is and what a mobile home is not.

Mobile homes are not perfect, I assure you that, but then again, what in life is?
