Appreciation, Adjacent Property Values

Repeated studies show that manufactured homes appreciate under the same circumstances as site-built homes when:

  • They are in a good location.
  • They are properly maintained.


Study by Michigan University

  • Manufactured homes, like site-built homes, can be viewed as an investment.
  • Manufactured homeowners can build equity just like owners of site-built homes.


Study by East Carolina University

  • Manufactured homes appreciate at comparable rates as site-built homes when taxed as real property.

With proper upkeep, maintenance and pride in ownership, manufactured homes can appreciate just as much if not more than site-built homes.
