The answers to the FAQs below may vary from property to property. For additional information or specific questions, please contact the property manager of the property you are interested in.
What can I afford?
First determine your budget and reach out to one of the lenders listed below to help “pre-qualify” you for your new home!
How do I get financing?
While we are not recommending or referring you to any particular lender, the following provides a list of lenders that currently offer financing for manufactured home purchases in your general area. Please consider choosing two or more lenders to compare best offers.
Do I need a down payment?
While you will need a down payment (generally between 5%-10%. Consult with a lender above), a manufactured home loan takes less time to process and does not have the “up front” costs associated with a mortgage.
What other costs can I expect to pay?
While your home loan payment may be your biggest expense you’ll have other regular payments. They may include utilities, property taxes, lot rent, insurance, routine maintenance and other service fees such as water and sewer. Today’s manufactured homes are built to meet new national energy standards set by the Department of Housing and Urban Development. These standards ensure that you home is well insulated and help reduce your monthly energy costs.
Will buying a manufactured home offer tax benefits?
Manufactured homes are not only affordable, they also represent a good investment. Financing your manufactured home will allow you to take a tax deduction for your interest cost. You may wish to consult an accountant to determine your approximate savings.
What warranty coverage is offered on the home?
All manufacturers offer a written warranty that should cover structural workmanship, factory installed plumbing, heating and electrical systems, and factory installed appliances, which also may be covered by separate appliance manufacturer warranties.
Are manufactured homes built to the same codes as site-built homes?
Manufactured Homes are built to a set of standards as tough as those facing the site-built home builder. The Federal Manufactured Homes Construction and Safety Standards. The Department of Housing and Urban Development enforces these standards through the Nation Conference of States on Building Codes and Standards. The code covers design, construction, durability, strength, fire resistance, energy efficiency and more!
What do I do if I want to sell my home?
If you want to sell your home, the first thing you need to do is to give Park Management 30 days’ notice.

All of our communities are also staffed by a Regional Manager, who is available to assist in the event of an emergency and in those certain cases where your onsite manager may not be in a position to help.
