Updating manufactured home

Welcome back, If you haven’t already noticed we’re a little biased here. While mobile homes come in all shapes and sizes they also come in all different conditions.

Ultimately, in many cases the condition of a mobile home will be a reflection of the home’s owner. “Pride of Ownership” Some 1970’s mobile homes are be in better condition than a 2000’s model mobile home.

If owners have money and pride of ownership they will take care of their home.

Manufactured homes typically depreciate in value over time, while stick-built homes tend to appreciate.

The older a mobile home is, the less likely that remodeling or adding upgrades makes financial sense.

You can always recover dining room chairs with fabric from the fabric store and put on heavy plastic over it to keep them looking great very inexpensively.

Right now, I am doing some landscape in my backyard with ferns from the woods and other greenery that is perennial.

Again, it is all about how well the owner takes care of their property.

I say owner, versus renter, because in most situations we are purchasing homes directly from owner-occupants.

I am trying to remodel an older (1977) trailer to look modern, fresh and newer. How can I make my trailer look really nice inside and outside without spending too much?

How can I paint the ugly dark brown doors and dark paneling? Usually you need to use something that keeps the background from bleeding through.

There is no point in remodeling if the cost of repairs cannot be justified by the ability to obtain a higher value after the remodel.
