From Condo to Upscale Manufactured Home Living – John & Joyce Walter, Oshtemo, MI – Inside MH Road Show Video

John and Joyce Walter lived in their condo for about 7 years. We did some Google searches, and the condos in the market they’re located in ranged from $200,000-$300,000 to $1.2 million dollars. Frustrated with rising costs and other issues they’ll share in this video interview, this professional who retired from a major pharmaceutical company and his wife decided to return to manufactured home living.

The homes in their neighborhood are typically well under $100,000, and the location they live has every homesite 100% occupied.  When you listen to their story, you can see why.

I met John and Joyce at a wine and cheese event being held at the clubhouse of the upscale manufactured home community they live in; Saddlebrook Farms, in Oshtemo, MI. We slipped into a side office to have the conversation you see in the video shown. So that low background chatter you hear are others talking at that same community social.

After talking to numerous residents at this manufactured home community, the picture emerges of happy home owners who love their lifestyle.

Literally 95% of Americans have little or no clue about the truth about today’s factory built homes. Interviews like this will help break down the pre-conceived – and often false notions that exist – about contemporary manufactured homes.

The still of that fireplace/Native American decorated reading room you see above is linked to a video with that home owner. The more you know, the more you’ll see why manufactured home living today makes so much sense for millions of Americans. ##
