Manufactured housing (also called Mobile Homes) refers to prefabricated housing that is assembled offsite and then transported to the site of use. This type of housing usually resides within a community of mobile homes, that is called a mobile home park. At mobile home parks, spaces are rented on a monthly basis to place the home. They usually come with access to utilities, waste management, and other amenities. Manufactured housing is often a lower cost alternative to traditional housing and also allows flexibility to transfer the house to another location.
