Manufactured home exterior improvements cost less and increase home values faster

  1. 1. Manufactured home exteriorimprovements cost less and increasehome values faster
  2. 2. People wishing to invest in real estate today are turning towards manufactured homes in larger numbers than ever before.Besides the purchase prices of these homes being a third of what a traditional site built home would cost, turning them around for a quick resale or as income properties costs far less to accomplish than it would for the traditional home.
  3. 3. By the time they finish manufactured home exterior improvements, the home is ready to list, for far more than they paid for it initially.
  4. 4. The path to manufactured home exterior improvementsThere are several steps that any owner of a manufactured home should take before investing time or money into exterior improvements. The first step should be to carefully inspect the entire outside of the home, and make critical notes as to what needs replacing, and what just needs some sprucing up, like new paint or exterior design improvements.
  5. 5. Once a list of needed improvements has been created, it is now time to contact the many manufactured home part stores for pricing and availability of the supplies you will need.
  6. 6. Most of these stores carry replacement parts for homes from all of the major manufacturers, and there are also lines of universal replacement parts, which are created to be used on any existing model, no matter what the year the home was originally built.Once the budget total is known, parts can be ordered, and it is now time to begin.
  7. 7. Basic sprucing upBarring the need for any major replacement of exterior items, like roofing tiles, gutters, manufactured home siding or manufactured home skirting, you may be able to improve the look of the home with some simple sprucing up of the exterior.
  8. 8. Most home improvement stores now carry paint certified for use on both mobile homes and manufactured homes, and all of it is of good quality, at reasonable prices.To avoid having to do more than a couple of coats, try to find some that have the primer included.
  9. 9. Other than painting the exterior siding, skirting and trim, a fast way to improve the exterior look of any manufactured home is to do improvements in the landscaping around it.Replace any outdated exterior lighting, and consider putting in landscape lighting along walkways and the driveway.
  10. 10. Add interesting colors in plants to the perimeter around the home for a quick improvement of appearance.Or, change out the shutters from the standard metal to those of quality wood design for a classic look. Another change that is easy is to add brick or rock accents around porches, and front door.
  11. 11. Increasing the home’s valueAny manufactured home exterior improvements that you undertake should be done with the intention of increasing the home’s resale value in mind. The theory of curb appeal is not meant for traditional homes alone, and if the home looks good from the outside, it will increase its value to any potential buyer at a later date. Take before and after photos, so the total effect can be seen. http://www.manufacturedhomepartsinfo.com/
