The Ohio Manufactured Homes Association tells MHProNews manufactured homes are the fastest-growing type of housing in the U. S. because of affordability and value. The average cost of a site-built home is $164,217, not including the land, a price most people of low-to-moderate incomes can ill afford. Although senior adults are most often likely to own their own homes, according to the-review.com, they are often on fixed incomes and unable to maintain the growing costs of upkeep on a traditional home, especially an older one. As the U S. population ages, with 7,000 to 10,000 people turning 65 each day, the affordability of manufactured housing is likely to have a stronger draw.
