Say Goodbye to Your Old Home

February 25, 2019

Dear Old Home,

I’ll make this quick and save us both a lot of pain.  I don’t love you anymore.  It’s not about you – it’s about me.  I’m getting older and I need less commitment to my home. 

There’s a new dwelling in my life that I’m in love with.  It’s a Hames manufactured home.

I know we’ve been together so long.  We’ve been through the ups and downs together.  But your endless maintenance, your basement that floods, the huge yard I have to mow and the stairs that seem to get steeper every year – we’re just not compatible anymore.

I’m going to buy a new mobile home for sale in Cedar Rapids.  It’s low-maintenance, one story, and has a cute, small yard.  The Hames family has been in business for 50 years, so I know it’s a reputable company.  They’ve helped me find my perfect match.

I love the neighborhood, too.  The people who live in the Hames community are friendly and look out for one another.  The green spaces are pristine, there’s playgrounds for my grandkids, walking trails for me, and events where all the residents get together.

I know you’ll find a new family and move on from our relationship.  Someone with the energy –and money - to put into your leaking roof, creaky floors, and sagging porch.  I wish you all the best.

I've lived in my manufactured home for 22 years. I've loved every minute of it.
