If you choose to purchase land for your new manufactured home, you’re making a big investment in both the home and your future. Let’s take a look at how Clayton’s Find Land tool can help make finding the right location easier for you.

The process of buying a manufactured home includes several different steps, and choosing your home’s location is definitely an important one. While some people may prefer to rent land in a community or already have land for their new home, others are looking for land to buy.

If you’re in this category, then Clayton is here to help! We know it can be hard to figure out which property is right for your new home, which is why we created our Find Land tool. We’ll show you how to use it and talk about some of the benefits of investing in land for your new manufactured home.

How to Use Clayton’s Find Land Tool

To use the Find Land tool, you’ll start by entering the zip code of the area you’re looking for land in. Then, you’ll see available lots, along with a handy map.

Manufactured homes must be placed in areas with certain zoning types, which can include restrictions on things like the size of the home or how big a lot needs to be. The exact restrictions vary based on local governments and municipalities, so it’s important to know what the rules are based on the location you want to live in. Many traditional property search tools don’t take this into account, so we’re here to help make things a little less frustrating!

Once you have a list of available properties, you can then filter your search by your preferred price range and distance, up to 25 miles. This will help save you time because you’ll only see lots that fit your needs.

By clicking on a property, you can see information like the lot size, whether it already has any site prep or land improvement options, photos and who to contact if you’re interested in learning more. You can then work with one of our trained home consultants at your local home center to help you confirm the zoning for your preferred land lot, as well as get more info about placing your home on land.


The Benefits of Owning Land for Your Home

Owning a home is a big investment in your family’s future, and land can be a great part of that investment. Homeownership has many benefits, from more freedom and privacy to building wealth through home equity. And having your new manufactured home affixed permanently to land can help your home keep its value over time, or even appreciate. This is especially true if your home is in a desirable or popular location and if you plan to move in the future.

At Clayton, we want you to feel confident about your new home purchase by making sure you have all of the info you need to make your decisions. Ready to take that next step? You can contact a home center near you today. There, our consultants can help answer your questions about how the home buying process works, including if the home center has any home and land packages — where the home is already built and placed on land — available.
