Manufactured homes are a great option for everyone, whether you’re an empty nester looking to downsize, a retiree hoping to relocate or if you have children who live with you.

If you’re interested in homeownership, there are several benefits to buying a manufactured home that you can leverage. Garber Communities has some of the top all-ages and 55+ communities in Florida with high-quality manufactured homes and resort-style amenities. Here are the top reasons you should consider buying a manufactured home.


If you’re concerned about budgeting, like many home buyers, manufactured homes are a great option to think about. Manufactured homes are usually more affordable than traditional site-built homes. These types of homes are more affordable because of the efficiency of the factory building process, which lowers costs. The cost of construction and labor is often lower, making them a cost-effective housing option.

Quality control

Another reason to buy a manufactured home is that they’re built to meet federal, state and local building codes. Manufactured homes are built in a factory with controlled conditions that ensure they meet safety and quality standards set by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). With the HUD Code seal of approval, manufactured homes meet regional standards for wind resistance, thermal efficiency, safety and durability and more.


Many people don’t realize they have a say in the look and functionality of their manufactured home. You can customize the space to meet your needs. When buying a manufactured home, you can choose from various floor plans, designs, finishes and features. This allows you to personalize your home according to your preferences.

Community living

Finally, you should think about buying a manufactured home for community living. These homes are often situated in RV resorts, all-ages communities and retirement communities. This is a major benefit because you can enjoy resort-style amenities such as heated swimming pools, fitness rooms, game rooms and more.

Living in a community setting can also help you connect with like-minded neighbors. Garber’s 55+ communities promote an independent, low-maintenance and active senior lifestyle. While our all-ages communities, like A Better Place, offer spacious homes perfect for entertaining the whole family.
