Hames - A Top 100 Community Owner

Again in 2014, Hames Communities LLC was ranked as a top 100 manufactured home community owner in North America as stated by The Allen Report, a nationally-recognized publication for the manufactured housing industry.

In fact, Hames Communities is the largest privately-held manufactured housing community operator in Iowa.  The Hames family takes a hands-on approach to owning and operating its five manufactured home communities in Iowa– Grand View, Summit View, West Park, Sunrise Village and West Branch.  Keeping management local means your living experience the best it can be because we’ll always be concerned about our residents’ welfare. 

What were once “trailer courts” or “mobile home parks” are now spacious and friendly “manufactured home communities”.  With Hames, you enjoy well-maintained streets, lots of green space, on-site management, and activities for everybody.
