Planning to Live in a Mobile Home Park in San Antonio?
According to a recent UT Austin survey, there are 88 different mobile home parks in San Antonio, TX offering extremely affordable living spaces.
With San Antonio and New Braunfels being two of the fastest growing cities in the USA, finding an affordable place to live isn’t always the easiest.
That’s where reserving space in one of the 88 mobile home parks in San Antonio can help you out. Monthly rates can be very affordable, sometimes in the $300s or less, which is WAY better than rent on most homes or apartments you’ll find in San Antonio.
But in order to get a space in one of San Antonio’s mobile home parks, you need something else – a mobile home to put there!
Finding the Right Home for a Mobile Home Park in San Antonio, TX
What makes a home just right for placing in a mobile home park? Size, home features and door placement are the biggest factors to consider other than cost.
Depending on the size of lot you are renting in the park, you might need a much smaller home model than what you might otherwise buy to place on ranch land out in the hill country, for example.
Some models are specifically built as “park model” homes too, and come with home features included with a mobile home park placement in mind.
Door placement can also be really important. Most mobile home models put the door on the longer side of the home, but some models put a door on the shorter end of the home, allowing you to place a home in a smaller lot between other homes, and have much easier front door access.
Our Top 5 Mobile Home Model Recommendations For Park Placement:
