Homes Have Exactly What Millennials Want — Style and Freedom


If you’re looking to convince your favorite Millennial that a manufactured home is right for them, start out by sharing some of the reasons below. (You shouldn’t have much trouble after that…)


1. They’re eco-friendly: Millennials are an environmentally-conscious group, and that includes their housing preferences. Fortunately, manufactured housing is much more sustainable than new construction. Translating into helping reduce personal carbon footprints. There are plenty of LEED-approved lines of manufactured homes and EnergyStar options and the structures easily lend themselves to additional upgrades, such as solar panels. Here is an unexpected bonus: construction of manufactured homes produces less waste than their traditional counterparts. Some companies have even been able to fit the entire trash contents from the creation of a single home into one garbage bag!

2. Safety First: The new generation of houses is rigorously tested, from wind safety to fire prevention. This means — unlike that charming house built in the 1800s with historic creaks and groans —you won’t have a hefty repair bill at the slightest breeze.

3. Lose the hard hat—no renovations required: When it comes to site-built homes, a buyer can feel like Goldilocks: this house is too big, that house is too tiny, almost impossible to find one that feels just right. Renovations aren’t an option with most millennial budgets capped. Fortunately, manufactured housing is infinitely customizable, whether you’re looking for a Jacuzzi tub, sliding barn-style doors or the home office of your dreams.

4. Consider Fido in all of this: Pets are a priority for Millennials, but finding a landlord who doesn’t wince at the thought of your beloved pup or cat shedding all over their unit is tough. What’s more, many apartment buildings, co-ops, and condominiums continue to charge resident a pet fee—even if they’re owners! Manufactured housing provides your dog, cat, hamster or lizard a place to roam around that’s free from worry.

5. The Price is Right: Bottom line? Manufactured housing offers all the quality of a site-built home with a much better price point, even for those with a budget on the smaller side. While traditional housing averages $109 per square foot, manufactured housing cuts that by more than half at $49, without skimping on any of the important details (like safety) or equally important extras (like that kitchen you’ve been dreaming about).
