If want to live in a mobile or manufactured home, or you want to try out living in a tiny house without getting too tiny, you have a lot of options about where to build your new home. NewHomeSource found the top real estate markets for manufactured and mobile homes, so you can find the perfect house for your lifestyle.
Manufactured Homes Lifestyles
These fantastic real estate markets have the most listings of manufactured and modular homes, giving home shoppers the most flexibility when choosing the right floorplan for their lifestyle. (In the Houston real estate market alone, home shoppers have over 900 manufactured plans available to explore.) Floorplans for manufactured homes live large, giving homeowners more value per square foot in their home.
Included in the value of manufactured homes of all sizes are green living and luxurious features. Many manufactured home builders are ENERGY STAR partners, so you can save money on your utility bills and protect the planet. When homeowners work with their builder to design their new home they can include high-end finishes like hardwood floors, tiled backsplashes and bathrooms, soaking tubs, granite countertops, and more.
The Goldilocks Home
Manufactured homes are designed for modern living, with floorplans that fit homeowners just right.
If you’re thinking about tiny home living, manufactured houses are a great way to try out the lifestyle without having to Marie Kondo all your personal belongings. Smaller manufactured floorplans are about 750 square feet, so you don’t have to pay for a lot of wasted space while still living comfortably in your new home.
Even if a tiny home isn’t calling your name, manufactured homes are great for you too! Home shoppers can easily find floorplans that have the same amount of space as a traditional single-family home. In a true case of having your cake and eating it too, you get to keep all your collections, your entire wardrobe, and furniture that isn’t doll-sized; all without having to clean, heat and cool, or decorate a massive house.
Invest in Your Dream Home
Manufactured houses give you the perfect chance to invest in homeownership. First-time homeowners can build equity in a piece of property before building their forever home. Retirees can enjoy a comfortably sized, newly built house without waiting on the construction process. All home shoppers will love the amazing amenities found in modern manufactured houses.

Common Features in Top Markets for Manufactured Homes
Why is there a boom of manufactured homes in these real estate markets?
Almost all of NewHomeSource’s top markets for manufactured housing are experiencing massive growth in most types of real estate.
