Reasons for Choice of New Housing

Information in this article was taken from an article prepared by NAHB for the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development.


The most important factor for moving in the past year was financial.  The square footage of the home and floor plan were also deciding factors.  Manufactured Home buyers cite financial reasons as the most important reason in the home they choose.  Mobile Home buyers are also eager to become home owners.  They also like the fact that the manufactured  home they are able to buy is considerably newer than the site built home in the same price range.  The manufactured home will also have less overall maintenance than an older home.  Compared to an older site built home the mobile home will have more amenities and newer floor plan trends due to the fact that it has been built more recently.
