Myth: mobile homeowners move around a lot.
Fact: on average, families stay in mobile homes longer than condominium owners.
For the past decade, an average family has stayed in a single family site built home between 10 and 15 years. Multifamily condo homeownership has averaged 6-10 years. Homeowners in our manufactured home communities (mobile home parks) stay in their homes longer than that! In a mobile home park, residents buy their homes but lease the land.
Upon looking at the homeowners in our Hames communities, we found that the average length of current residency is:
8 years, 5 months in Summit View, Cedar Rapids
6 years, 10 months in Grand View, Cedar Rapids (our newest community)
Homeowners who stay in the same place for a long time keep their homes cared-for and well-maintained. You can’t always say that about renters! Long term neighbors also get to know each other, and tend to look out for each other, and create a wonderful sense of “community”.
Why rent when you can own a home of your own, in a planned community, with neighbors and managers that care. Click here to view our large selection of new and used, single and double-wide manufactured homes for sale.
