Frequently Asked Questions

What is a manufactured home?
A manufactured home (also known as a factory-built home) is a home constructed in a factory, transported to a site, and installed. These homes are built entirely in a controlled environment, under a federal building code administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Due to sophisticated production processes, manufactured homes offer the best in efficiency, affordability and innovative design options.
How does the purchase price of a manufactured home compare to site-built homes?
Manufactured homes are typically 20% to 50% less than comparable site-built housing.
Do manufactured homes pass any sort of inspection or are they held to any construction standard?
Unlike site-built homes, all manufactured homes are built to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Code, with each home going through a rigorous inspection process before being certified and sold. This Code regulates home design, construction, strength, durability, fire resistance, and energy efficiency. It also sets standards for heating, plumbing, air-conditioning, thermal, and electrical systems. Inspectors, known as PIA's (Primary Inspection Agencies), actually monitor construction of the homes as they are built in the factories.
What kind of warranty protects my home?
Fleetwood homes come with a one-year limited warranty. The warranty covers all manufacturing defects in materials and workmanship, under normal use of the home, for one full year. Ask your Home Consultant for a copy of the warrant.
Can I buy directly from Fleetwood?
Fleetwood homes are sold through a network of independently-owned stores and model centers instead of directly from the manufacturer. Our role as the local dealer is to help you with every step of selecting and purchasing your home. We also provide resources for financing and insuring your home and will coordinate delivery and installation. Ask our Home Consultants about the full range of services we can provide.
Do I have many options in floor plans, size, and price?
You can get just about anything you want in a Fleetwood home. We offer a wide range of floor plans that are specifically designed for your region. You can choose homes from 550 to 2,500 square feet and from one to five bedrooms. And you can personalize your home to match your tastes with upgrades and custom details.
How can I finance my home purchase?
Financing is available through commercial finance companies, banks, credit unions, and savings and loan associations. Ask our Home Consultants about financing options.
What interior options, features, and extras are available?
The many options you can usually select include cabinet and window designs, wall coverings, wood-burning fireplaces, appliance packages, floor coverings, skylights, bay windows, custom cabinets, refrigerator, range, microwave ovens, trash compactors, garbage disposals, washer/dryer, and more. Ask our Home Consultants what is available for the floor plans you're interested in.
Do I have to order a home or can I buy one that is already built?
This is your choice. We do keep an inventory of homes and we can special order a home as well.
Can I get VA financing?
