Picking the Perfect Mobile Home Park to Live In

April 12, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 154

A lot of people who I talk to that had just moved in to a new mobile home community often vent frustrations regarding their disappointment in choice places to live. They move in to a community and get awestruck by some of the superficial features and never thought to look into more important matters. Just because the community looks nice on the outside, doesn't mean it is the best place for you.

If you are over 55 years of age, it is wise to choose a community that only allows senior citizens that are at least 55 years old. These "retirement" communities will often be more peaceful and senior friendly. They often will have rules for visiting children so as not to allow prolonged sleep overs at grandma's. If you are lucky they might offer transportation to and from appointments that you might require. This may be a paid service or included in your lot rent. The operations management often have organized activities or social engagements that might interest some. Helping hand services might be available for people who need assistance with minor home maintenance. This is usually offered at affordable prices. If you are in an area that the winter season is a worry, communities will offer snow and ice removal as a courtesy.

For people looking to move a family with kids, certain areas should be looked at. A playground or an area for kids to exercise is a plus. One should look into neighboring schools and see if it suits their needs. School bus schedules should be looked into to see if the bus will come into the community and pick up. There will often be a curfew so kids are not running around after dark. A key issue is available space for a growing family. A mobile home site/yard isn't very big and can be difficult for kids to enjoy.

Crime levels within the mobile home community should also be a concern. Mobile home parks that allow families will typically have higher crime rates than retirement communities. You can visit the local police station and talk to officers to see how often they are dispatched into the community. Talking to the community manager might not be the best source for this since they are bias. They might not tell you the whole truth in fear it might deter you from their community. Talking to neighbors is also a good source.

If you are located in Southeastern Wisconsin or North Eastern Illinois, Kettle Moraine Manufactured Housing, Inc., can help you locate a community that will suit your needs.
