Manufactured Homes

Boise, Idaho. If you think manufactured homes are fancier, upgraded versions of mobile homes, think again, friend.

By definition, manus are factory-built residences constructed after June 15, 1976. Thankfully, today's manus "bear little resemblance to the mobile homes of yesterday," according to the HOV Blog.

What's more, with the average price of a new build reaching nearly $500k in Jan. 2022 and a new manu build coming in at $128k the following Feb., manus are excellent inroads to affordable homeownership in the Gem State.

Manufactured Homes: facts & benefits

  • Options. Floor plans & interior options range from base model to luxurious interior upgrades like: vaulted ceilings, modern & fully equipped kitchens, spacious bedrooms, & bathrooms with recessed tubs & whirlpools
  • Stationary. Modern manus aren't actually mobile; from build to plot, they're only moved once
  • Dealers. Buying a manu is similar to the car-buying experience; dealers have model homes on-site featuring single, double, or tiple-section floor plans ranging from one-to-four beds & one-to-three baths
  • One-Stop Shop. From floor plans to financing, buyers can knock out their manu-home purchase all in one day
  • Budget-Friendly. Manus are more affordable than traditional brick-&-mortar builds
  • Quick Builds. Because manus are built by a single manufacturer, construction delays are minimal & turn-around times are quick
  • Homestead. Installing a manu on their private land gives residents greater flexibility in maintaining the property, potentially increasing its value
