Are you or someone you know interested in moving to Florida?
I imagine the answer to that question is yes, which is why you stumbled on this video in the first place!
The manufacture and sale of prefabricated mobile homes have grown at an accelerated pace in the last five years, following a trend that began several decades ago. The reason is that mobile homes are much cheaper than conventional homes or an apartment, even costing 70% less per square foot
In addition, when new, they have the advantage that they can be transported to the park the owners want to move to.
The growth of prefabricated mobile home sales demonstrates that the market is changing and accelerating. The public seeks more economical, respectful of the environment, and reliable alternatives and mobile homes are perfect for this.
Florida occupies the ninth position among the best US states to make summer trips along roads, despite the high gasoline prices, according to a report from the Wallethub personal finance portal. The so-called “Sunshine State” obtained a good score in 32 key metrics that Wallethub used to find the road destinations “more fun, panoramic and economic”, in addition to those who will make travelers make a fast-turning.
The metrics cover the number of attractions, the conditions of the roads, the costs, the average price of gasoline, miles traveled, to nightlife options. Florida led in a number of attractions, was located in sixth place in terms of the lowest price of a three-star hotel room, and in seventh in nightlife options per capita.
The United States offers thousands of possibilities to make a fun road trip. Without a doubt, everyone’s most famous is that of the West Coast, but Florida is more and more a complete destination for a most entertaining road trip. If you ask yourself what to see in Florida beyond the famous thematic parks, keep reading because this might be the reason why you should buy a mobile home in Florida.
As a transplant to Florida myself, I can personally tell you that living down here for the past few years is something I wish I had done years before I finally made the decision to call The Sunshine State my home.
One of the reasons why I decided to move down to Florida years ago was due to the weather and all of the fun outdoor activities that the weather allows one to do year-round while they call this beautiful part of the country their home. With the recent real estate buzz that the entire country is seeing, it is amplified that much more down here in Florida where we tend to see more dramatic rises and falls and real estate prices than other common areas within the country.
So, with interest rates still remaining low and real estate prices going higher and higher seemingly every day, where does that leave the person who is looking at purchasing a property down here in Florida for a reasonable price?
Enter the world of mobile homes!
Mobile homes are a fantastic affordable option for those who are looking to call Florida home either permanently or for just a few months per year.
We here, at The Mobile Home Dealer, specialize in selling mobile homes on leased land all throughout the Gulf Coast of Florida. When we are referring to leased land, we are referring to a transaction where the Buyer buys the mobile home and is leasing the land it resides on. This monthly lease payment for the land is called lot rent and is paid each month to the mobile home park where the home is located on.
I personally view this differently, as I look at it as a condo association does, as you are essentially getting the same thing you get when living in a condominium complex.
These fees commonly cover the usage of the land, and all of the resort-style amenities, for which there are several, your lawn care, your water bill, your sewer bill, your trash bill, and even sometimes your cable television bill!
You really do get a lot of bang for your buck within a mobile home park just like living in a condo complex!
When looking at buying a mobile home on leased land, it is important to know that the dramatic rise and fall of real estate prices do not really play into this housing segment.
Traditionally speaking, the price you buy the home at is usually where it will sell for a couple of years later.
The good thing is that you do not see huge swings in price, so if you’re looking to buy now during a real estate craze you are not paying on an upswing, the bad thing is you are not buying an asset that appreciates all that much either.
If you are looking for an affordable, carefree living experience in Florida and are frustrated with the current rise in real estate prices, I for one, would invite you to take a look at a mobile home as your next housing purchase.
