Choosing a community
This is the most
important step: finding a manufactured housing community which
"feels" like it could be your new neighborhood. How to do this?
Well, you need to drive through - look around - visit the public
areas. Ask questions of everyone you see. Take your time.
Visit on weekends. Here are some things to consider:
How does the
community look at first glance? Is the entrance easy to find and
pleasant to look at? When you drive in, does it feel open, airy,
uncrowded? Are the homes located away from the entrance, for more
privacy? Do the street signs and informational signs help and
Look at the homes
already in the community - are they clean and neat? Are all
vehicles parked off-roadway in driveways? Are lawns green, cut and
What kind of "extras"
do homes have - garages, carports, awnings, decks, front porches?
Is there plenty of landscaping, trees, flowers?
Is there clutter
anywhere? A good community will have rules about keeping a
homesite picked-up, putting children's toys away, parking trailers and
boats in a storage area, and keeping vehicles in good repair.
community have public facilities for things you like to do?
How about a large room for family parties? Sports and activity
community offer a storm shelter? A warning siren?
shopping facilities nearby? Groceries, banking, pharmacy, auto
service, hardware, and health care are very necessary services you
need easy access to.
Visit the office.
Is the Manager available? Knowledgable? Friendly?
When you find the
right community, you will know. It must feel "comfortable".
It must be convenient for you. It must offer the greatest
opportunity to live in the style you have been looking for.
Of course, we hope you choose
Cedarfield 55+ Community!
