1. What are
some things to look into when purchasing a piece of land for
Having an ideal
foundation is one of the most important things to consider when
purchasing land for a relocatable home. You want land that consists
of dense soil so that builders can create a lasting foundation.
Along with finding the right soil quality, another critical aspect
when choosing land is to ensure that utilities can reach the area.
For example, are sewers and water pipes accessible? Is electricity
available? These are all vital factors that must be considered when
purchasing land for relocatable homes.
2. What are
the hidden costs to move relocatable homes?
The process of
transporting your relocatable home can breed some hidden costs if
you are doing so for the first time. On average, it typically costs
between ten and fifteen thousand dollars to transport your home,
with distance being the main factor. The overall process of
relocating a home entails other things that can be considered
hidden costs because they aren't readily on your mind such as
landscaping, proper drainage and having utilities connected at your
3. How much
does it cost to connect electricity, water and other essential
utilities to relocatable homes?
The price to have
utilities built in and connected will vary depending on where you
are looking to live. However, a septic tank will likely run you
close to $10,000 for full installation, with plumbing adding
another $1,000 or so to that price. The price to connect
electricity will differ based on what needs to be done. Obviously,
if a trench needs to be dug and meters and other components need to
be installed, it will cost more. This could total a few thousand
dollars as well.
4. Can I
re-level a house without re-stumping?
without re-stumping can be done, it is highly recommended that both
go hand in hand. Stumps that are constantly being exposed to wet
conditions will deteriorate much quicker. Performing a re-level
without re-stumping will lead to an
unlevel surface shortly thereafter. As a rule, if twenty percent or
more of stumps show bad deterioration, it is wise to consider a
total re-stumping. Avoid slopes, cracks and uneven floors in your
relocatable home by ensuring it is on a level surface. Having a
level surface will prevent very costly damages that occur over time
to your home and property.
