Manufactured homes are affordable homes

By Jennifer Hopkins

The price of manufactured homes is a great fit for first-time homebuyers, retirement downsizers, and people rebounding from the reality check of the recession.

People choose manufactured homes for lots of good reasons. You can find manufactured homes in any style, and in any community.

In New Hampshire, manufactured homes make up most of the homes sold for less than $100,000, so they are a good fit for people who want to spend wisely on affordable, energy-efficient homes. The price range is a great fit for first-time homebuyers, retirement downsizers, and people rebounding from the reality check of the recession.

I was impressed with the story of Mike and Kathy Scanlon, who worked hard to move into a manufactured home in Mountain View Housing Cooperative in Gilford, N.H., and glad our Welcome Home Loan could help.
