A number of people are making the paradigm shift towards low cost living, which makes it absolutely necessary for them to seriously consider the task of finding the perfect location to place their mobile homes. Here are three tips to help you not go wrong with the process:
Survey Your Options
It is best to do some prior research for feasible spaces that you can use to place your manufactured home. It could be either an existing community lot, or an individual space that you opt for. Existing communities offer the typical neighborhood feel along with the basic amenities at your disposal for a monthly charge. It is important to consider whether the monthly charge is justified by the amenities provided. If you like living away from the crowd, a secluded lot would work best for you.
To Rent or To Purchase
Again you have the option to purchase the land or be a tenant on it by placing your mobile home on it. If you like to move around a lot, your best bet is renting the lot you like. If you are renting the land, make sure you do not have to pay any additional changes in terms of water bills, trash removal or sewage management. Check your lease agreement to endure it is free of unusual prohibitions to the use of land. In case you are purchasing a lot, you need to make sure the area is zoned out for mobile homes. Also, check for any restrictive clauses on the purchase agreement.
Inspect the Land for Safe Installation
You need to check the slope of the ground, the presence of debris or rocks that may make it difficult for your home to be placed leveled to the ground. It is also important to see that your chosen location is not too remote to be accessible by the moving truck.
Here’s a wise word, before you get your mobile home installed at a place, do confirm there is no additional fee for moving in or moving out. Also, make sure the land being used is not in for foreclosure by the court. If you need help with moving or setup, contact us.
