Retirement and Manufactured Home Parks: Enjoy Retirement to Its Fullest Degree

Manufactured homes offer resident buyers the complete joys of owning their own home while doing so at a fraction of the cost of a traditional house. While this is true across all age demographics, it becomes particularly true for those 55 and plus, who are entering retirement and are looking to downsize their lifestyle to match their retirement. For these individuals, not only will they pay less for the home but also a manufactured home can come with the unique community of similarly aged neighbors in a hassle-free environment. 

It's for these reasons that we have seen a rise in mobile home retirement communities and it makes perfect sense: why not downsize at a fraction of the cost of a traditional home and eliminate the vast majority of the bothers of house ownership? Retirees and manufactured home parks then, it would seem, is a win-win situation.  Continued at the bottom right....

Retirement and Manufactured Home Parks: Enjoy Retirement to Its Fullest Degree, continued....

One of the primary reasons individuals and couples 55+ are moving into manufactured homes is because it is typically cheaper than buying a retirement home and yet still grants you the ownership possibilities not possible with renting. This grants these people the financial freedom to enjoy their retirement rather than undergoing the burden of trying to maintain (both financially and physically) a traditional house.

Additionally, more people are realizing the benefits of not having to deal with traditional homeownership burdens such as extensive yard maintenance. The best manufactured home parks include exquisite landscaping saving you the time and hardship of simply maintaining the area surrounding your home.

Age-specific mobile homes give retirees the chance to socialize and be neighbors to their own peers often creating a vibrant community that, chances are, would not occur in the traditional house setting. By being around their peers, retirees can establish lasting friendships and be more active with the accompaniment of their neighbors.

Of course one should always consider the larger community outside of the retirement home park. Most residents in a retirement manufactured park want an inexpensive city that is fully capable of catering to their needs with great medical facilities and entertainment options, from quality restaurants to a number of recreational activities.

Because of the high quality of living and the lost cost associated with such, age-specific retirement home parks are increasingly becoming the choice of retirees. Without the hassles of a traditional home, but with full ownership and a vibrant community, retiring just got a little better.
