manufactured housing for seniors
Manufactured housing is a wonderful option for seniors who want to downsize, retirees looking for a seasonal dwelling or adults who want to live in an affordable home without giving up the perks. Although many manufactured homes are referred to as mobile homes, they are more upscale and newer than the mobile homes of yesteryear. Since 1976, the quality standards have been higher and homes built after that date are called Manufactured Homes, even if the communities in which they are located are called mobile home parks.
One advantage to manufactured housing is price. Manufactured housing offers style, function and space at a cost far less than traditional housing. The cost per square foot is much lower and yet the quality is possibly higher. It may be higher because the homes are manufactured in a very controlled environment. Weather doesn’t play a role in delaying the building process and it doesn’t expose the unfinished home to the elements.
Another advantage of manufactured housing for seniors is that manufactured homes usually include all appliances and often furniture. Many of the homes have built in china cabinets and desks and they make the most of every available space. The master bath often has a walk in shower rather than a tub because many seniors prefer that. Unlike other homes, the cupboards are usually low even if the ceilings are high. They are often in all adult or age qualified communities with a great many amenities, and the residents feel quite safe. Because of the proximity of other homes, neighbors watch out for one another. Since the communities are comprised solely of seniors, the residents have much in common and they tend to be like-minded about peace and quiet. Manufactured housing is a great choice for many senior citizens.
