Frequently Asked Questions
What are the advantages of leasing a piece of property?
Leasing "their" property allows our residents to enjoy all the benefits of home ownership for far less cost, by eliminating the expenses and obligations associated with buying a piece of land. In many instances, the rent is less than one would pay for real estate taxes alone.
How much is the lot rent and what does it include?
The amount of lot rent varies from park to park dependent on the respective costs of running the park and the market value. The rent covers the operating costs of the park, such as utilities, real estate taxes, maintenance of the common areas and roadways, payroll costs and insurance.
What are the community rules?
Each community has a set of standards that has been developed over the years through experience and with input from past and present residents. They are based on the common sense principles that most people live by in their daily lives. A full list of community guideliens is available at the sales and management office at the time of registration or with a potential buyer's packet.
Can I bring my pet?
The majority of communities allow pets; however, in order to maintain the property and to appease those residents who do not have pets, most communities have regulations regarding the size and behavior of the pets. These regulations may be found in the community guidelines.
How do we sell our home if we need or want to?
You may sell your home independently, through an agent or through the community sales office. All prospective residents must meet the respective entry requirements for the community. More information may be found in the community guidelines.
What are the benefits of a manufactured home versus a traditional site-built home?
Because manufactured homes are built in factories with controlled environments and assembly-line techniques, the entire process of building the home is managed more efficiently and effectively. Because of this, as well as the economies of scale that result from being able to purchase large amounts of materials, the price is significantly less than a site-built home. The quality of the factory-built process, and the wide range of affordable styles and amenities has helped to create a unique style of quality home that people can afford.
