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.
