Businesses like Clayton Homes and MHVillage have websites that list mobile homes for sale in all 50 states. In some cases, the homes are for sale along with the land they stand on, while others are on rented lots.
Mobile homes, also called manufactured homes, are homes built for continuous transportability. Laws require them to have a wheeled chassis attached to the frame that enables transportation. This means any home advertised as a mobile home is movable.
Clayton Homes lets users search for mobile homes after entering their ZIP Codes. From there, users must specify the type of home they are looking for to narrow down the search results. The homes on the Clayton Homes website are brand new or custom built.
MHVillage lists used mobile homes, and many of these homes are less expensive than new homes. MHVillage allows users to search for mobile homes by state. The site then narrows down the search by having users choose a specific region in which to search. The listings for the homes show year, type and size of the home. The number of bedrooms and bathrooms, type of heating, type of roof and siding and other details, such as the appliances that come with the home or whether the home has a storage shed, are also listed.
