Naw, having electric at a mobile home is no different then having electric at a house
down the road or in town. Mobile homes do have electric poles in which the electric
meter is attached.
Naw, just because you live in the county does not mean you are on Mars. HaHa!
You still have 911 and phone service, even a landline if that is what you want.
All in all, I suppose it mainly depends on where you live.
I've lived in the country/county most of my life. I now live in an old coal mining town.
However, where I lived before was in the country, I had well water and electric of
Welllll not so much any more Darkstar2. It used to be that mobile houses depreciated
a lot faster than a house. Now they are selling mobile houses for more than what was
originally paid for them.
A lot has to do with the housing market. When Bob passed away, I put my house up
for sale and assumed it would take a year or more to sell. I had no idea what the
housing market was. It was and still is a sellers market right now. I had several sets
of people look at my place and it sold in two weeks! I was very unprepared all the
way around. I bought a little house near KY Dam that I was not thrilled with but had
to do something. I ran out of time. It was extremely difficult to find a house so I
took what I could. Then a couple of months later a decent house opened a few towns
over near my sister so I put my house up for sale and it sold in one week! Then I
bought the house I am in now. So as you can see, a lot to deal with, Bob passing
away, house selling in two weeks, buying house selling it in one week, buying another
house. It was absolutely insane!
And location location location is a huge difference in pricing. This is all vacation, resort
areas where I live. Housing can be expensive, whether it be a house, cabin, mobile
house, if on the lake or near the lake or dam.
Some of the mobile houses around here are really beautiful. 2000 sq foot, brick or
stone underpinning, hardwood floors, cherry wood cabinets, two and three car garage,
landscaped to the hilt, tornado tie downs, whole nine yards.
I do understand what you are saying. For the most part, I prefer a solid house. I live
in a brick house with almost 1800 sq foot and average size yard, small back yard. I'm
satisfied with where I live and in a small town but close to everything. Plus, this town
is up on a hill so to speak so if the dam floods, I am safe. haha!
