With the cost of housing soaring and inventory seemingly shrinking people all over the country are giving more and more thought to mobile homes as an option. They cost a fraction of the price and in the right situation – can add value fast.
One of the ways people have been doing this is by purchasing mobile homes that are a little bit on the older side and renovating them. Not only is this a great way to save money, but also an awesome way to add value to your home and give you the kind of space you’ve always dreamed of without blowing your budget to smithereens.
Today, we’re going to talk about a few budget-friendly adds you can make to your mobile home to really help boost your comfort and your home’s overall value. Let’s jump right in!
There are a million reasons to choose more eco-friendly amenities in your home, but in regular houses they can often seem like they’re not worth the high cost of entry. With mobile homes, the cost to add something like a solar panel or more efficient windows isn’t nearly as prohibitive, meaning not only will you pay less for a better product, but you’ll also save more money over the long haul. So if you’re thinking about replacing outdated electrical fixtures, window film or weather stripping, now’s the time!
Remember what we said about eco-friendly projects being a little bit more cost-prohibitive because of the high cost of entry? Well, the same thing rings true for flooring projects. In a mobile home, you can go with enhanced options that will cost a literal fraction of what it would cost to say – re-floor your whole downstairs area. In addition to the cost, it’ll also add a tremendous aesthetic to your mobile home and make it more appealing down the road when you look to potentially sell.
Roofs can be a problem for mobile home purchasers – particularly for those mobile homes that are a little older because most of their roofs were made from really cheap material. The good news is that – and here we go, again – you’ll be able to replace your roof for a fraction of the price that it would cost you to roof a normal house. Now, with mobile homes you WILL need to be a little bit more cognizant of your structure and what the frame of your home can withstand. Don’t’ go getting delusions about high-end metal panel roofs, here. But you can add a great roofing system that will be built tough and built to last – and save a ton of money.
Hopefully these are some ideas that give you a little inspiration for your next project. Mobile home renovations are affordable and you can have many of the things you’ve always wanted so long as you’re open minded and a little bit creative.
