we have been looking at two differant homes. they are both about the same price. one is a house 3 bedrooms one bath kind of small and really close to the main highway. the second is a mobile home it is brand new has 5 bedrooms 2 bath and is huge. 2 living rooms, big kitchen and laundry room. but i live in alabama and we have alot of tornado's so A mobile home is not that safe. we can buy our own land were we want it and the trailer for the same price for the house.

I hated living in a trailer when I was younger. It seems everything was so poorly made and much cheaper in quality. Also if you want to resell they are hard to get rid of. And you may lose money on them.

 Yep I would take the house or keep looking. There is a ton of houses for sale these days.

I would never buy a mobile home. They depreciate in value instead of appreciating like a house. You might as well be renting.

I would choose the house.  But then again it is so hard to say without seeing the quality in both of them.  I would think that the house would be more sturdy and made to last.  Good luck!!

this. And if a tornado comes unless you had a shelter you would be screwed

I would keep looking. I wouldn't want to be close to the highway. And I wouldn't buy a home I felt wqs unsafe.
