Modern manufactured homes can come in entry level, 'shade and shelter' or residential styles. This residential style home boasts 9' ceilings, elegant crown molding, Merillat brand cabinetry and sold for about 1/2 the cost of a similar sized conventional home in the Chigago suburb it is located in.

Reality Check – Living Better When Quality Living Costs Less

What is the reality that quality yet affordable living produces? With the affordable housing crisis spreading, we’ll peek and see the solution hiding-in-plain-sight revealed in this half-page report and video.

In many of our articles we’ll spotlight one or more “real people.” Those reports come from places border to border in the U.S., and we are looking at including Canada in future episodes of the Inside MH Road Show too.

Listening to home owners and experts on dozens of videos we’ve produced talk about their real-world experiences is much more impactful than dry numbers on a digital page. Besides, seeing is believing!

When someone sees the beautiful homes and begins to understand the quality that modern manufactured homes provides, then the savings is more like a bonus. The improved living for less mantra is achieved.

While we routinely do video interviews, today we’re featuring a promotional video done with Elite Home Center, an MH and modular home retailer in Springfield, MO. If this 65 second video doesn’t fire up your imagination, then get a check up with your primary care doctor!

Too many judge a book by its cover. That’s why publishers started creating amazing looking book covers.

Frankly, not every retailer or MH community has the curb appeal that others do. Some do a great job with their model home displays, while others do less. For example, some retailers have homes that are only partially set up on their display, usually to keep costs down. While it can save the buyer money, that also makes it more challenging for some shoppers to ge the true feel of what that home they are walking around in is actually like, and thus some may walk away because they lacked the visuals needed to fill in the blanks.  

For that and other reasons, MHLivingNews encourages MH retailers and MH communities to do all they can to make it easy for the home shopper to imagine what the buyer is actually getting in a model they are viewing.

This is an example of an entry level manufactured home. It still meets all of the strict safety and construction features mandated by the federal, preemptive HUD Code for manufactured housing. The furniture and decor makes picturing how someone might arrange their own home easier. Learn more about comparing entry level vs residential style manufactured homes at the link at the end of this article.

That’s where video can come in handy. You see the home at its best and as it can be, the viewer immediately “gets it.”  When your home looks great, is high quality and costs less to buy, has lower payments, lower utilities and lower maintenance, then it is obvious that you can have more money left over for everything else in your life.

Quality yet affordable living is likely closer to you than you may realize.

Check back soon, we have two powerful and eye opening reports we plan to bring you here next week. ##
