Manufactured homes can appreciate in value just like any other home!

Factory-built homes have been seeing a rise in popularity over the years, and there’s no question why: they are built faster, more affordable and just as attractive as their site-built counterparts. This is especially true with Champion® Homes, since we’ve been a leader in building high quality manufactured and modular homes for decades.  

Even with the rising popularity of factory-built homes, people still have worries. One of the main worries is the value of the home after it leaves the retail lot and is placed on land for you to live in. Because of this, many owners of manufactured homes have decided to invest in upgrades to improve their curb appeal and chances of a higher sales price in the future. Yes, you do have power in this issue! When you combine that power with Champion’s high-quality practices and materials, you will find yourself much better off than what common perceptions might believe.  

Here are some things that can be done to keep a high value manufactured home.  

Better Appliances, Better Home

The first step to home value appreciation is made easy when buying with Champion, and that is to install energy-efficient appliances, which luckily come standard in our homes! When you are shopping for your home with your local retailer you’ll explore options of brand-new Whirlpool® appliances, many of which are Energy Star® compliant. These not only lend home value, but they also look darn good too!

Curb Appeal Helps Everyone 

Curb appeal doesn’t only give you the warm & fuzzies when you’re coming home after a long day, it also helps the entire neighborhood and surrounding area! Not to mention, your home value! Improving curb appeal can include keeping the exterior paint on your model up-to-date and potentially getting a fresh coat when it’s needed. Or you could simply choose from some of our upgraded siding selections to drive the appeal home (pun intended). 

Curb appeal also includes landscaping, like making sure the front lawn gives an appealing traditional feel with details like a walk up or some nice flower beds. Even more influential, consider adding a front porch or garage! Not sure where to start? No worries, we’ve got a whole blog on manufactured home garages HERE!  

Consider A Community 

Manufactured Home communities are great options for homeowners for many, many reasons. We made a whole TikTok on the topic because there are so many (watch it here)! The perks and amenities associated with living in a land-lease community can add significant value. Ground maintenance being taken care of, potential access to clubhouses and swimming pools are just a few perks you might find. Thanks to these perks and the HOA you could join in a community, maintaining your home’s value will be much smoother! Need help searching for a community that fits your needs? We’ve got you!
