I've never looked at owning a Mobile Home, but I found that they are so much more affordable than site-built houses.  Debbie and Bob were very helpful and were there every step of the way.  I am now the proud owner of a new home and couldn't be happier.  R. & A. McNamee

My husband and I have been renting an apartment for 6 years.  Our family is growing and it was time to buy our own home.  Since it was our first, we had a ton of questions, Ken and the team at Gold Coast were very patient and answered all of them.  We love our new home.  Y. & C. Maness

We listed our home with Debbie and Ken and within 2 weeks we had 2 offers.  Our home sold and the process was very quick and painless.  T. & J. Simonton

I like the fact that when I call, I get to talk to a real person, or they return my call very quickly.  Usually though, they call me first.  J. & G. Nicholls

I found my dream home.  I've been looking for 4 years and finally found it.  Everyone at Gold Coast was extremely helpful.  M. Washington

Then Advantages of Manufactured Housing

Manufactured housing is less expensive. There is a broad range when it comes to the price of manufactured housing since there are many variables involved in the price of individual manufactured homes. Depending on features such as the floor plan and details included in the home create a range of from under $20,000 for a single-section home with basic features to prices in excess of $100,000 for a deluxe multisection home.

Depending on the region of the country, construction cost per square foot for a new manufactured home averages anywhere from 10 to 35 percent less than a comparable site-built home, excluding the cost of land.

There is often better quality control, which results major benefits to building a home in a factory. For instance, all aspects of the construction process are under controlled conditions and weather doesn’t interfere with construction and cause delays. All technicians, craftsmen and assemblers are on the same team and are professionally supervised. Inventory is better controlled and materials are protected from theft and weather-related damage.

In addition, all construction materials, as well as interior features and appliances are purchased in volume for additional savings and the cost of interim construction financing is significantly reduced or eliminated. And finally, all aspects of construction are continually inspected by not one, but several, inspectors. Manufactured homes offer fantastic amenities.

Today’s manufactured homes come with many "standard" features that you would find in a site-built home. Many floor plans are available that range from the basic models to more elaborate designs with living and dining rooms with vaulted ceilings, fully-equipped modern kitchens, comfortable bedrooms with walk-in closets, and bathrooms with recessed bathtubs and whirlpools. You may also select from a variety of exterior designs, including metallic, vinyl, wood, or hardboard.

Design features such as a bay windows, gable fronts, or a pitched roof with shingles can also be selected. Awnings, enclosures around the crawl space, patio covers, decks, and steps are also available at additional costs. And with many manufacturers now using the latest in computer-assisted design, you have the flexibility of selecting variations to the floor plans and decors, including the color and thickness of the carpeting. These options can include everything from the type of exterior siding materials to energy-efficiency features to kitchen appliance upgrades.
