Frequently Asked Questions

It certainly makes sense that you would have questions prior to your purchase of a manufactured home within our community. Here are some common questions and answers we’ve put together to help you with your initial phase of inquiry:

You’ll experience a high-standard quality living at an affordable price which includes resort-style amenities and proximity to nearby schools and medical facilities. 
Today’s manufactured homes typically encompass over 1,400 square feet and come in a variety of floorplans. Home features can include vaulted ceilings, deluxe kitchens, walk-in-closets, bathrooms with recessed bathtubs/whirlpools, plus added features such as skylights, peaked roofs, screened-in porches, bay windows, fireplaces, covered driveways and custom-designed kitchens.
