you’ve thought about “mobile homes.” Manufactured homes (as they are now
called), have come a long way from their trailer house origins. the
construction quality and appearance of many brands are as good or better
than conventional homes, and they can be sited and ready for move-in in
far less time, often at significant savings. Yet for all their advances,
manufactured homes are still most sold like cars; through street
dealerships. True, most are reputable, but historically shady dealings,
fraud and misrepresentation have been all too common.
In this comprehensive
book, John Grissim, author of the bestselling Grissim Ratings Guide
to Manufactured Homes, give you everything you need to safely—and
successfully—navigate the tricky waters of the manufactured home
marketplace. He explains how the manufactured home industry operates, how
to find a dealer worthy of your trust, how to make the right home
selection, and, as important, how to be informed, empowered and
researched, with extensive input from both industry insiders and consumer
advocates, this guide contains much information that retailers, even the
good guys, don’t want you to know.
