When you’re in the market for purchasing a home, before you call up a real estate agent, it might be good to consider building. With manufactured homes, you can have a house delivered and built on your land within a week, ready to move in. All you’ll need is a lot to place your home on.
Choosing the Land
The first thing you have to do is choose the land. One of the advantages to buying land is that it gives you more options. You can have more space around you and potentially even have a business on the property as well.
You can work with a land broker to learn about the various land plots that are available. These could be inside of a park community, a residential neighborhood, or remote farmland where you could purchase by the acre. The choice is yours based on where you want to be located and what your budget is.
When you have the ability to purchase land, you can always explore the possibility of renting or selling some land later on. This would happen once you place your manufactured home on the land and decide what you have left.
Why You Buy the Land and then Build the Home
You should buy the land and then look at having a manufactured home built. There are a few reasons for this. The first is that it doesn’t take long for a manufactured home to be constructed. By having the land already chosen, you can then enjoy your home right away without having to wait for a real estate transaction to be completed.
The second reason is so that you can see how large you are able to go with your home. This includes not only the square footage of the home itself, but also garages, landscaping, fencing, and any other additions you want to make.
If you buy the home and then the property, you could end up finding it difficult to find the right plot of land. You don’t want to get into a situation where you’re forced to take a smaller piece of land simply because your home is ready and you need somewhere for it to be dropped.
Buying land provides you with options. You might decide to have a home and business on the plot or you might decide to lease some of it out. You can have the expansive home you want without feeling limited in any way. Once you have your land settled on, contact Palm Harbor Homes to get on the right path to homeownership!
