Manufactured homes in Florida in over 55 communities are popular as main homes or second homes. One in five home purchases in Florida is a manufactured home. In the latest U.S. Census Bureau report Florida is still in top ten for population gains. Florida and Texas grew the largest numerically.
Some communities have rent to buy programs to see if you would enjoy living in a manufactured home. Some communities have rentals and/or seasonal rental programs. Communities that have rentals are highlighted in yellow. Carefully read all rules and restrictions.
Senior communities are usually neat, quiet and low maintenance. Be sure to purchase new homes from reputable dealers with warranty programs.
Resident-owned manufactured homes communities in Florida may offer better stability.
In a land-lease community, the owner of the land could sell the land and require you to move. Some owners of land-leased communities, however, state they have long-standing commitments to being more permanent, but read your contracts.
Land-leased communities may be preferred for financial reasons. Check with the owner for more information about the community. Please verify if listings on this page are resident-owned or land-leased.
