What’s the difference between a Manufactured Home, a Mobile Home, and a Modular Home?
A manufactured home is a home constructed in a factory according to strict code that must be adhered to per the National Manufactured Housing Construction and Safety Standards (HUD code) of July 15, 1976. A manufactured home is transportable in one or more sections, built on a permanent chassis, and is a home with or without a permanent foundation. Manufactured home titles must be transferred to the new owner as part of the transaction. Modular homes are factory built and brought to the site in one or more sections. Unlike a manufactured home, which must adhere to the national HUD code, the modular home is regulated by the BOCA code. This is the same code site-built homes must adhere to and must be placed on a permanent foundation that meets the local requirements. A mobile home is a factory-built home that was built before the July 1, 1976 HUD code came into effect. Mobile Home is a legal term for modern manufactured housing.
Can you move a home here?
Yes. Manufactured homes moving into the community must be a minimum of 14′ wide, and must be approved by Community Management prior to move‑ in. A manufactured home will normally not be accepted if it is more than 8 years old. Management reserves the right to refuse admission to any manufactured home, which does not meet Community standards or the condition, and/or appearance of the manufactured home is misrepresented. All new homes must be wood sided and have wood skirting and decks. Additional move in standards can be provided by management upon request.
