Do you offer rental options?

If you are financing the home only, you would take out a chattel mortgage. For packages that include the home and the land, there are conventional mortgages available, along with Federal Housing Administration (FHA) and Veterans Administration (VA), mortgages. Check with your local retail center or community for more details.

How are your homes constructed?

Our homes are available for sale only, but many home shoppers find them more affordable than traditional homes. This can be a great opportunity to go from renting to homeownership.

How is a manufactured home different from a traditional home?

Our engineering department uses computer-aided drafting to design a home to the buyer’s specifications. Because our homes are constructed in a factory, they can be built more efficiently than a site-built home. Here’s a more detailed look into how our homes are built.

How much do Jacobsen Homes manufactured homes cost?

A manufactured home is built in a factory, unlike a traditional home that’s built on-site. Once it’s finished, it’s delivered to your chosen site. A typical manufacturer produces many homes at a time, gaining economies of scale and keeping overall costs down.

I already own property. Can I place my manufactured home there?

At Jacobsen Homes, we can refer you to local retail centers or communities in your desired area for specific pricing information. We are unable to provide pricing from the factory because each home is different.

Is financing available for a manufactured home?

If your land is zoned properly for a manufactured home, yes, you can. Make sure to get the proper permits and confirm any size restrictions.
