“The First Thing I did is Read some Articles and Watch some Videos”

VideoI often leave business cards with my tip at a restaurant, or hand a card to a clerk when checking out at a store. My card looks dramatically different – featuring QR Codes – so people with smart phones often check it out right on-the-spot. Others will later type in the web address, and then see all we share on popular MHLivingNews.com. Recently, a lady who got my card followed up. She started by saying, “The first thing I did when I got home was read some of your articles and watch some of your videos.” My reply was, what did you think? “I loved it. I had no idea that manufactured homes had come so far!” The enthusiasm in her voice was crystal clear. She explained that a friend of hers and she were both in the market, looking for new homes. I suggested they check out MHVillage.com to find specific home-sellers in their market. She thanked me again, emphasizing how excited and proud she was to discover how great today’s manufactured homes truly are. The Take Away or Tip for Today is this. When you have a friend in the market for any kind of housing, one that needs to better understand today’s manufactured homes, suggest they check out the videos, articles and reports on MHLivingNews.com. You’ll both be glad you did!

MH Community Living – 3 Tips for Maximizing Your Home’s Value

I began living in MH Communities in the mid-1980s. Previously, I’ve also owned and lived in brick veneer houses in nice and pretty expensive neighborhoods. Listen to the voice of experience: if you want to protect and grow your home’s value, think about these three facts.

  1. Location, location, location. Real estate agents say this is huge to your home’s value. The nicer neighborhood has more value than one that is poorly kept. Keep your home-site, steps, decks and the exterior of your home looking great. Help your neighbor, starting by example, to do the same. Even if you live in the nicest community in your area, never stop improving. It’s fun, builds community pride and adds value to your home by enhancing your curb appeal.
  2. When your community is full, values go higher. I always picked the nicest MH Community and the one that was the most full to buy or place my manufactured home in. If there are vacancies, help management fill them by referring friends, family and co-workers who are looking for a new place to live. When your MH Community is 100% full, the only way for someone else to get into that location is to buy an existing home! Supply and demand…that pushes MH values higher. By the way, the same is true for conventional housing in residential neighborhoods.
  3. What’s in a name? Plenty. Get in the habit of saying “manufactured home,” not “mobile home” or the “t-word.” Yes, “mobile home” is easier to say, but legally there have been no new mobile homes built in the U.S. since June 15,1976. When the federal manufactured home construction standards went into effect that day, there was big safety, quality and energy-savings improvements. Apples-to-apples, a manufactured home is worth more money than a mobile home. So if your home was built in or since since that 1976 date, get in the habit of calling it what it is. Ask yourself this question. If you needed to sell your home some day, which would bring you more money? A “trailer,” a “mobile home,” or a “manufactured home”? Which sounds classier?

Enough said for today!

You live better when your home costs you less. Enjoy your home and community!

Facts Melt False Fears!

Usually, you get what you pay for; so when you pay more, you tend to get something better. That rule has its exception in modern manufactured homes. You save money because of the time saved and volume buying savings you get on anything made in a factory. A car built in your driveway would cost more than a car built in a factory. That same principle applies to today’s manufactured homes. Want to hear from experts and actual home manufactured home owners? Check out the video interviews, video home and factory tours and expert articles on MHLivingNews.com. If your like millions of others, the facts will melt false fears and concerns!
