Manufactured Home OwnershipBefore you select your new home, you will need to decide what type of lifestyle suits you best.

Manufactured Home Communities

Manufactured Home Ownership with land is attractive for many potential buyers. By purchasing real property and a Jacobsen Home, qualified buyers of manufactured homes with land have the ability to obtain a “Land/Home” mortgage.
When searching for manufactured homes with land, the first thing that you should check is how the property is zoned. Make sure before purchasing that the land is zoned for either manufactured homes or modular homes. Find out if there are any deed restrictions for the neighborhood you are looking at.
Next, you will want to find out what the set-backs on the property are. This will determine what size home you can place on the property.
