There are many parts to an equation to purchase a home. First, the owners have to want to sell. Secondly, your financial situation must be such that a bank would lend you the money besides the down payment you would need to supply. Your credit would need to be good. If you are not in a position to purchase now, you could always speak with the owners to let them know that if some time in the future, they would be interested in selling, you would be interested in buying. But you would need to speak with a mortgage professional to see if that is possible at the time the opportunity presents itself. If you want to have better clarity, you should contact a mortgage professional now, just to understand the process. Of course, it is always helpful to have a realtor also explain all aspects of a transaction. ... more

Start by getting your own agent to assist you. There is far more than offering a price to getting an offer submitted, reviewed and approved. You need someone representing your interests and watching out for you. ... more

Speaking from a Realtor's point of view, my concern would be if, and when, you want to sell, do you think your home will be more valuable than when you purchased it. My experience for 24 years has been, it is much more difficult to sell a manufactured home than to buy one new. The values seem to depreciate instead of appreciate.
I would recommend checking out the homes available for sale in the area before committing to purchasing a manufactured home. It might surprise you by the time you spend for all of the upgrades to a manufactured home versus a stick frame home built on site. For future value, you should really do your homework before investing your money in any home.

Theresa Pick answered:
I'm NOT a broker or a realtor, I have lived in this community (for about 13 years now) here's my take, I agree that prices have NOT gone down here, there have NOT been many foreclosures like in FL (we have been looking to possibly sell our housein the near future & buy or build again (we'll be downsizing as the kids are finishing college soon & hubby will be retiring from the Post Office)

Prices are still better here than most other states. We still don't have state income tax to pay & the property taxes in Sparta are much lower than FL (we lived there for 17 years, but are originally from NY) so we are still looking to stay here for our retirement years. We like the independent spirit that encompasses Tennesseans in general.

We live a bit out in the country (we are 12 minutes from the city of Sparta, 25 minutes to Cookeville or McMinnville) to have freedom from city regulations & restrictions, bought 6+ acres & custom built a house, tried our hand at raising a few sheep, chickens etc.

County Agriculture office & neighbors were a big help. People are there if you're friendly but respect your privacy if you wish to be left alone.. We can host a church get together , make a huge bonfire kids can ride 4 wheelers, shoot at targets, go hunting out the back yard (neighbors let us hunt on their adjacent land) ,...

I am NOT a realtor! Here is a link to the house we custom built so we would be sure of the quality:

Just thought I would post as I have no vested interest in getting someone to move here, so you can trust my post as objective. Hope this helped.
