Just remember that mobile homes depreciate like a car, not appreciate like a house. And typically you can only pay cash (Some banks will lend). Be careful buying a mobile.

Although some areas are predominately mobile homes, if it is an area that is mostly "Stick built" homes then it may not be a wise investment. Also, if it is on acreage and there is value in the land, it adds to the plus.

But again, becareful investing your future retirement.

Good luck,
