Hurricane Irma really devastated much of the Caribbean and areas of the Southeastern US. Hurricane Maria is currently tearing through the Caribbean as well. With all of the talk about hurricanes, earthquakes, and storms in general, I figured I would address some of your concerns about how mobile homes hold up in a storm.
Manufactured homes have been built according to Wind Zone specifications since 1994. This means that homes set up since that year must meet strict wind zone guidelines to meet code and pass inspection.
There are currently 3 Wind Zone tiers based upon the anticipated impact in your county. For example, there are only 3 counties in NC that require Wind Zone 3, more that require Wind Zone 2, and most only require Wind Zone 1.
Mobile homes are built to conform to strict guidelines as it pertains to wind, however, damage can still occur. The same is true for site-built homes. Most mobile homes that are significantly damaged during storms are as a result of 1) Not being tied d...

Have you heard all of the horror stories and just can't quite come to a place where you can consider a mobile home? The great news is manufactured homes aren't what they used to be. They are intended for a totally different purpose than they were decades ago. The fact is that people really were not intending on living in mobile homes for very long in years past. The goal was to live in one just long enough to SAVE UP and BUILD a site-built home one day. With housing prices skyrocketing however, consumers began living in mobile homes with the intention of staying there for a lifetime. The industry began to react to this need and that is why we have manufactured homes now that are intended to be much less mobile.
Sure, there are still entry-level homes out there built similar to the mobile homes of old. How else can you get 1600 sq. ft. turnkey for less than $60,000? That is a mere $35/sq. ft. That type of home serves a purpose. Would you rather live on the street or pay rent to a landlor...
What kind of home do I really budget for? This is a question that we must answer every single time we sell a home. When you are looking to purchase a home, especially if it is your first time, you really do not know what to do or what to expect. The fact is that financing a home can be really frustrating if you do not have someone helping to guide you through the process...that is where our team comes in. We literally obtain financing for our customers on a daily basis, so we know what the banks are looking for. We explain to people all of the time that you must be credit worthy, but you must also have the debt/income ratio in line. Most are familiar with credit scores, but not many customers fully understand the debt/income ratio part. This causes customers to have a false sense of what they can and cannot afford. Some think they can afford way more than they really can, while others think they can afford much less than they really can. Don't get frustrated wondering how you will be a...
