mobile homes???

we really need to move and are interested in buying a mobile home. financially, it just seems like our most feasible option. we are a family of 3 and need 2 bedrooms. we also have a 20 pound dog... does anyone else live in a mobile home? how is it for you and your family? how did you go about finding one to buy? we have been looking for 2 days and so far, our search results are pretty crappy. there are alot of parks in our area, but its hard to find them on the internet. do you recommend buying a brand new one and placing it somewhere? i know these are alot of questions, but our 1 bedroom apt. gets me more claustrophobic by the minute:)

  • how about a small house or condo. my friend had a mobile and she couldnt sell it for anything more than she bought it and she had to put some money into it for repairs and renovations, so it was like she lost some money.

  • I know a few people that either owned or live in one and they all put too much money into them and didn't sell it for half of what they put into it, or they always have to fix things in them, I don't know how it is were you live but were I live you can buy a decent one for like 2-3 grand cuz know body want's to buy them so people just have to keep dropping the price.

  • not a good investment unless you own your own land. and even then, iffy. if you own your own land and get a good repo, you can do really well.
