Your ideal home: a place where you can find rest and sanctuary after a hard day's work; where your family could all come together and bake cakes and pastry, have outdoor barbeques during holidays, and some good old family dinner time watching TV with Starhub. Now who says you have to have an oversized house to do all of these things?
As more and more people are becoming conscious of saving money, owning mobile homes are becoming a very popular alternative to the more traditional brick-and-mortar homes (which can be almost a torment to buy). If you're looking to know more about mobile homes and to find out where you could shop for them, then read on:
Mobile homes are created in factories, then transported to a designated site. They are usually categorized by size: single-wides or single units (measuring 18 by 90 feet, or less) and double-wides, or two units (20 by 90 feet). The prevalence of mobile home parks (sites where mobile homes can be situated; around 35,000 in the United States), along with the low land taxes and very affordable mobile home units, make this living option definitely a viable one. So if you have a small family and you're interested in living a very simple life with minimum expenses and money problems, then why not invest in a mobile home?
