Mobile homes for sale in Austin today evolved from humble beginnings. They originated hundreds of years ago out of necessity, transporting families from city to city selling homemade goods. Eventually, the mobile home design developed into a suitable place to settle down, raise kids and cultivate your space all at an affordable price. There are a lot of stereotypes about mobile homes, though. Sometimes it can be hard to separate fact from fiction. We decided to shed some light on a couple of these myths, so you can be informed when looking at mobile homes for sale in Austin.
This myth originated from the construction quality of trailer homes 50 years ago. At that time, mobile homes were cheaply built, and there weren’t many codes or regulations governing quality. In 1976, however, US Congress passed the National Mobile Home Construction and Safety Act (42 U.S.C.) making it necessary for the mobile home industry to maintain and uphold higher standards of building and construction. Now, Austin mobile home manufacturers must use high quality materials and pass a third party inspection, while adhering to strict codes and standards, both Federal and Local. Mobile homes in Austin are built in an indoor factory with climate control, ensuring close care and attention to detail from the beginning phases of home building to the end, passing inspections each step of the way.
While many assume that Austin mobile homes are vulnerable to harsh weather changes, the Manufactured Housing Institute points out that this is an old way to view the mobile home industry. In fact, in some of the luxury mobile homes, the quality of construction exceeds that of many site-built homes. Mobile homes are built by skilled craftsmen, using high quality materials. Furthermore, many of the homes built today are Energy Star Approved, which means that they are energy efficient as well.
This is also something that used to be true about mobile homes in Austin, but isn’t true about modern mobile homes. In fact, they are built in many different models and styles. We have a diverse range of mobile homes for sale in Austin including beginner homes and luxury models. You can browse through hundreds of different double wide and single wide mobile home models that you can look at and compare.

This isn’t always true. Rather, it depends on the location and care of the mobile home. If a mobile home is on a rented property and isn’t taken care of, it is true that it doesn’t have much resale value. However, if a mobile home is placed on an owned property, it appreciates and depreciates like a house, particularly if there is landscaping or a more permanent foundation.
