we moved in with my parents because I decided that I wanted to go to college full time and I knew that I wouldn't be able to bring enough money while going to school, to afford everything. My husband does not make nearly enough to support our household on his own.
living here this past year has been a blessing in so many ways, but I can't help but feel like I want my own home again. I was raised by parents that made enough money that we were able to always have a nice home. I never lived in a trailer. Right now my husband and I cannot afford to buy a real home and there are no apartments around here that are more then 2 bedroom. Out of curiosity I was looking around and I found a trailer that is 3 bedrooms one and a half bath for $4500. it is in a trailer park across from the High School in our town. There are 2 trailer parks in our town, one is really nasty but this one has always looked fine. My husband and I could buy this trailer with cash and only pay $265/month to rent the lot that it is on in the trailer park. We would have to tighten our belts a little, but I think we would be able to afford to live there right now while I'm going to school. I'm nervous though because I've never lived in a trailer before or a trailer park. I know that there is a stigma attached to it and I know that the homes depreciate in value very quickly.
what is your opinion? Would you buy a trailer home in a trailer park so that you can have your own home and not live with your parents anymore? Or would you steer clear of the trailer home, and for what reasons? Thank you!
