How much home can you afford?

Well, that is a good question! Have you decided to purchase a manufactured home? That is great! Manufactured Housing is a great option for Texans. According to census reports an estimated 20 million Americans live in manufactured homes. Manufactured Homes are a more affordable housing option due to the manufacturing process. The homes are built inside factories which takes away added cost and wasted time on weather delays. The factory atmosphere also allows for quick production as the homes are built on an assembly line. Due to the mass production of homes the factories can purchase massive amounts of supplies at a time, thus getting cheaper rates than a typical home builder. These factors, and many more, help create the more affordable manufactured home.

We are continuing to see an increase in families moving away from traditional site-built housing and into the more affordable option of a factory-built home. If you are thinking about buying a manufactured home, you need to know how much home you can afford.


Here are a few things lenders will look at when working on your pre-approval for a home.

       1. How much do you make per year?

       2.  How much do you spend each month on bills?

       3.  Do you have a down payment? How much?

       4.  What is your credit score?

       5.   Do you have a place to put the home?
