Manufactured Homes in Florida for 55+

When buying or leasing the lot for manufactured homes in Florida, you choose to have lot rent (leased land) or no lot rent (owned land).

Manufactured homes in Florida 55+ are a popular choice  whether as their primary residence or a second home. One in five home purchases in Florida is a manufactured home.  

Resident-owned communities have no lot rent and often offer more stability.  (But one may have other fees according to what that community policy is. )

In contrast, land-leased communities have lot rent added to whatever other fees there are. 

Owners of the land your vehicle (home) is on can sell the land, potentially requiring residents to relocate.

Some land-leased communities claim long-term commitments to permanence, but it's crucial to review the contracts and inquire about the community's status.
