Schult Homes....

3 posts in this topic

I have the opportunity to purchase a 1999 Schult Mfgr./Double Wide home. What do you guys have to say about the quality of these houses? It is a nice house but it also is on 1+ acre and has a fantastic insulated/heated shop. The price is also nice! Any help would be great. It also doesn't have a basement, but I've been told it is on a firm foundation and is mortgageable on the 2nd market. Any thoughts??

Id say if you like it, go for it!

Mfgr homes are so much better then they used to be.

I have one and have no problems with it. don't expect the quality parts such as windows/furnace/etc of a stick built, but there is nothing wrong with them. they are built indoors, so you don't have to worry about rain/etc getting in at the wrong time and creating mold. they are made to go down the road at 55 mph, not many stick built homes would withstand that!!! Mine isn't on a foundation, it's on footings. Not sure how big the one you are looking at it, but mine is 28 X 80. if you have any questions, feel free to e-mail me. rverdeck@earthlink.net there are many options for these and lots of things to look for. Mine happens to be for sale as well!!! I have a garage (2 stall), 30 X 54 shop/storage, a big hay shed I use for campers and 3 smaller animal buildings on 26 acres, so I've checked the market (in my area) so I know what things are going for. as far as financing, you shouldn't have a problem. I had no problem financing mine 8 years ago when I bought it, and was told that when they are on land like that, it's treated more like a regular house.

    • Watch your City Ordinances.  Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working.  After that the water driven sump pump will kick in.  The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower).  Cities keep the tower full for fire protection
    • So proud of my 93 year old dad.  It's getting tougher and tougher just getting him out there, but he still knows what to do once there.    
    • I still gotta tag Moose! I'm going for a Tom only!!   (Personal thing) is ,,, I want to do it with my bow
    • Shaggy parasols are coming up in the shade garden again. Yum.  
    • VTX129 has a great point on nothing smaller than 9". I have a HB 998Ci HD unit. The bottom features that I can pick up are incredible- however I sometimes have a problem picking fish up on it. I have tried to keep my SI width narrower to help ID fish. Overall fantastic tool. The hard to soft transitions are easy to see as are rocks and so forth. On the HB units the larger screened ones come with the High Def transducer.  The smaller units come with a compact transducer. You can find some great prices on models that are being phased out - but they also will quit repairing those units sooner as well. Trade off's. Check out Universal Mania and some others online for pricing. Bass Boat central has a lot of info under Humminbird and Lawrance topics.   Good luck   Steve
    • CM I agree...and Chicago seems to find those diamonds in the rough...not sure how their AHL team is or if they have more of these "sleepers" coming up from somewhere but I bet they are right back in the finals within a 2-3 years with or without Q.   Another article that came in last night on Fletch/Wild http://nhl.nbcsports.com/2017/04/25/wild-exit-early-fletcher-stays-positive-a-familiar-refrain-in-minnesota/  You might have to Cut/Paste
    • Same have to give them a try once they come out.
    • Can't wait to test that Sprinker. 
    • lots coming thru for a couple days now.  had fun whistling with a couple yesturday. 
    • I wasn't able to catch it live and when I tried finding it after the fact it wouldn't play on my laptop for some reason. I do admire Bowman for being visibly ticked about their early exit, but I think that may get pushed a little too far. You tick off Q and he might just walk out the door. Bowman just fired one of his buddies and Q isn't too happy about it. We will see how that plays out. I think the Hawks are in a tougher position cap-wise than the Wild and have been for a few years. The difference is they had been getting no-name guys to emerge and contribute. They could be on a very slippery slope in Chi-town. We will see how that plays out.
