20150415_105705More than 17 million Americans live in manufactured home communities like Rose Lake Estates. What do they know that the rest of us don’t?

Here are just a few of the many ways those living in manufactured home communities are living a more efficient, cost effective lifestyle than most Americans:
Manufactured homes can cost an average of $62,600, compared with $272,200 for a single-family site-built home according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
Manufactured homes also cost 10 to 35 percent less per square foot to build than “stick homes.”
Your heating & cooling bills are lower than most Americans – by far! You have energy efficient heating and cooling systems and ENERGY STAR appliances.
• Builders take great care in making sure each home is tightly constructed with efficient water heaters, and high-performance windows.
• Your square footage of living space is perfect for you and your partner and/or family. You know what you need, and live within your means.
• Manufactured homes come in all shades of colors, but the most important is “green,” as in environmentally friendly. Modular construction allows builders to use less material without compromising a building’s structure [source: Gorman].
• Your exterior is green, too. Smaller yard plots mean less time spent maintaining your yard – especially mowing. That’s good for you and better for the environment.

The residents of Rose Lake Estate Homes think it’s time to take a fresh look at manufactured home living. Just like the 17 million Americans living in today’s manufactured homes, our residents find their homes more cost-effective to buy and live in, with lower maintenance (than stick built homes), and better for the environment. Swing by our safe, peaceful, shady, established neighborhood and see for yourself.
