As home prices rise, it becomes more difficult for many to realize the American Dream of owning a home. Affordability can be an issue whether you are looking for your starter house, raising a family on a budget or simply want to downsize to cut housing expenses.
Renting may be an option for some, but even those prices are rising. Another option is to buy a manufactured home that can offer the amenities you seek in a traditional house.
The quality of manufactured homes is as a good or even better than site-built homes. They are safe and can be customized to fit your needs and lifestyle.
The National Housing Institute reports that more than 22 million people in the United States live in manufactured homes. They account for 10% of new single family home starts.
Want a deck or patio? Want to grow your own garden? You can customize your home at a fraction of the cost of a site-built house.
Fonk’s Home Center is a third-generation family business that was established in 1948. We pride ourselves in maintaining two beautiful, manufactured home communities in southeastern Wisconsin.
Manufactured homes are a great option. We offer financing and a home you want to start out in, raise a family in or retire in.
Whether it is a starter home for a young couple or a country community setting for families to grow and seniors who want to enjoy a simpler life, you can realize home ownership at two communities just outside Union Grove — Harvest View Estates or Hickory Haven.
Manufactured homes cost less than half the cost of a site-built home, according to the NHI. Affordability is an obvious benefit. Owning a manufactured home can offer some permanence and creates family stability and pride of ownership.
A manufactured home is built in an enclosed facility and must meet strict code standards set by U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
