4 1/2 Things you’ll Miss About Your Mobile Home If You Move Out

November 25, 2015

1. A home all on one floor. 

Staircases aren’t just a hazard for the elderly, according to the medical journal Pediatrics;   nearly 100,000 children under the age of 5 each year are taken to hospitals for injuries they sustained on a staircase, usually at home.[i]  Your mobile home only has 3-4 steps leading up to the front door.  It’s better for you, your family and your guests.

2. Someone who lives in your neighborhood is available 24x7 if you’ve got an issue. 

Hear a strange noise outside your window?  An unfamiliar car in front of your home that doesn’t belong?  In Hames manufactured home communities, we have managers on-call  at all times.  And, Hames managers are required to live on-site.  It’s good to know we’ve got your back.

3. Knowing that your neighbors are screened.

Background checks are performed on anyone applying to live in a Hames mobile home park.  Grand View, Summit View, West Park, Sunrise Village and West Branch Village are planned communities, with guidelines to which all residents agree before moving in.  Your friends can’t say that about their city subdivisions.

4. Planned community events.

From our Kids’ Programs to Senior Bingo nights, we’ve got plenty of options for everyone to get together and have fun.  Our Easter Party, Halloween Party and Winter Warm-Up events are the talk of the town, and are free to occupants of Hames mobile home parks.

4.5 Even more ways to get together…

The Hames community rooms are available to rent for residents’ own parties, too!  Birthday parties, baby showers, Girl Scout and Boy Scout meetings, and even a wedding or two have been held in our Hames event centers.  


Back to the “basement” argument: remind them that basements can flood.  And besides, all Hames communities have emergency storm shelters for safety. 

In fact, why not convince your friends and family that manufactured housing is the best way to live?  Have them view our large selection of new and used mobile homes for sale online, then contact us, or call us at (319) 377-4863.
