There’s nothing quite like reaching your dream of home ownership. Knowing that you are building equity and living the American Dream in your own home makes everything seem to go better, whether you’re a first-time buyer or an “old pro.”
Built for living, built for life
Know what else has these families smiling? They have the exact home they want, living where they want to live, in the comfort and style they’ve worked so hard to achieve. Their manufactured homes are built for living, built for life! Let’s see how they reached this important milestone in their lives.
Manufactured homes appreciate in value
Just as these families have, you too can discover the value and quality in today’s manufactured home. Manufactured homes offer a solid foundation for your investment. Whether it’s your first home or your next, they appreciate in value like every other home in the neighborhood. So you see, manufactured homes are just like site-built houses in nearly every way except the one most important. Where they are built!
Built indoors has many advantages
Manufactured homes are assembled in an indoor building center. That’s right. No rain, no wind, it’s always a light, warm and pleasant place to work. And on the job are the same craftsmen every day each of them an expert at their particular construction specialty.
Everything is built to stringent national building codes. Major structural components are pre-assembled and inspected for quality before being lifted and secured accurately into place. Wood shops right on the factory floor pre-build cabinets that fit every time. And indoor construction out of the weather is a painter’s dream come true!
Design changes are no problem
In the building center design changes can go from studio to factory floor in a matter of minutes and a few steps. “I’m doing a quality control check here making sure what the customers ordered is in the home.” Then before any home leaves the factory, it must pass further rigorous construction and appearance inspections. “And all is good as ordered!”
All homes come with a full one-year warranty. And the same people who built and installed your home, do the warranty work.
Interiors can be modest or feature spacious living rooms with vaulted ceilings. Full dining rooms, eat-in kitchens with the latest conveniences, elegant bedrooms with walk-in closets, dressing areas and bathrooms with recessed tubs and whirlpools. “It’s very spacious, lots of cabinets, I like the island in the middle. For me, I think its my dream kitchen.” “I think we enjoy the high ceiling because we wanted to enhance the acoustics of the instruments as well.”
Energy Star rated homes
For the energy conscious, manufacturers offer insulation, windows, appliances and air exchange system packages that exceed building code requirements. You’ll stay warmer in the winter, cooler in the summer and enjoy an even higher home value should you ever want to sell.
Designing your new home
All manufactured homes come with a long list of standard features. In addition, you have the option of changing everything from the basic floor plan to the thickness of the carpet. Peters Homes sales consultants will assist you with designing and choosing the appropriate features for your new manufactured home.
Walk through our display homes
Option lists are fine but, there’s nothing that can take the place of actually walking through a finished home. Now’s the time to visit our manufactured home display center. And here’s the best part. Peter’s Homes has several home styles on display and, we carry homes from more than one manufacturer. That means you can do the same walk-thru in homes of many different sizes and floor plans right here in our Design and Sales Center. “We had hundreds of choices. When we went in to make final choices and final decisions about the house, that’s when we started feeling like wow this is really going to be our home!”
Of course for most people home ownership really means taking out a loan. You may be surprised at the variety of commercial loan options available to you. A major reason is the measurable value of today’s manufactured home. Most financial institutions offer traditional 30-year mortgages for homes being sited on privately owned land if the home and land are financed together. If you already own the land then a personal property loan can be arranged for the home just as loans for other major purchases.
Siting your home
You’ve found the home of your dreams and, a way to afford it. So where can you site it? The answer is virtually everywhere. Attractive designs, residential exterior siding, roofing materials and other options make today’s manufactured home fit into any neighborhood. Whether you want to live in an urban, suburban or rural setting, changes in State laws and local zoning ordinances guarantee you have more choices throughout the Northwest.
The Land-Home Process
Most manufactured homes are placed on individually owned property. A popular method of doing this is called “the land home process.” You find the land, hire a contractor to do the site prep, buy the home from Peters (who will also handle delivery and setup) and finance the whole process with your favorite lender. Peters Homes sales staff will hold your hands during the entire process to ensure a smooth new home purchase.
Moving in to today’s manufactured home
Then its move-in day! Another family realizing more than the American dream. They’re moving in to today’s manufactured home, a quality investment that will build equity as it serves their housing needs for years to come.
