Recently a home buyer shared the following on our Facebook page:
Most communities have some restrictions on pets, however, if one of your family members has four paws, there is a way to make it easier to find a place that will welcome them. MHVillage has Advanced Search tools that let you look specifically for Pet Friendly communities.
There are two easy ways to use these tools:
1) Go to the Advanced Search page and use the check boxes to narrow down the search for exactly what you looking for. Want a family friendly community that allows pets and has a pool? You can search for that!
2) You can also narrow down your search after you have seen what is available. For example, there are 99 manufactured home communities in Mesa, AZ. At the top of that list is a Narrow Your Search tool that will let you select only those that allow pets. That brings the count of communities down to 64.
Now, there are a couple of caveats to keep in mind: occasionally policies and information change. In addition, just because a community accepts some pets, doesn’t mean they accept all pets. So, be sure and verify all information by calling the communities directly.
