Our insurance rates are less than $1,000 per year on our manufactured home in Silver Lake. Granted, we insured only for replacement value, but I cannot believe that 2.5 times stick built rate could possibly be fair.

There's as saying at the gym I go to, "Who cares about status".

IMHO - I have always said that when one retires, nobody gives a darn, (cleaned it up), about what someone did for a living. I am out to enjoy myself and others who are like minded. I have said about my family, those who want to get together for a good time are welcomed. Those who want to be argumentive and miserable, stay home in your misery.

A home to me is a place that is comfortable and inviting. A place you enjoy living in and when your out and about, a place you look forward to coming back to.

To each his/her own.

Default buying a manufactured home on the lake

My wife and I are on our second goaround at the villages. We are looking at a maufactured home on the lake and are a little freaked out that these homes last only 40 years and loose about 5000 a year in value and this house is 25 yrs old. Need advise

Like Stonecrest? You buy the flamingo and I'll put it out front (not).

I asked this question before and never got an answer. Can you by a manufacturered home, remove it and build a new home on the lot?

Sure, as long as you get the new model approved by the ARC. I saw a couple of new ones being installed on lakefront lots in the Orange Blossom Gardens historic section this summer.

i cannot answer your question - but - it made me think/wonder...if your concern is the case, why do you think so many people are living in those manufactured homes - on the water or not? hmmmmmmm.....

One thing you can count on if you live in a mobile home and there is a tornado or you get a divorce in Florida. Someone is gonna lose a trailer.

Default Shade!

The Historic Side has more shade from older growth trees. It's Florida after all & shade is nice.
