Information about Buying Mobile Homes

While some mobile homes are on their own private lots, for the ones in "Parks" you own the building but not the land. The land is owned by a private company or individual who rents it to you, usually for about $525/mo in Nanaimo.

Many of these homes (the buildings themselves) are only worth a few tens of thousands – so why would anyone pay $275,000 for one? Well, it’s because you are also paying for the “interest in land” which is the lease you have with the park – that lease has value. Although you are technically a tenant, the landlord doesn’t have the same ability to evict you as would someone who is renting out their house or apartment. There are protections from the Province of BC under the Manufactured Homes Act. If the landlord ever sells their property (e.g., to a developer who will build townhomes), you are entitled to a large sum ($20,000 last time I checked) as well as a year of grace, and additional compensation if you are unable to move your home somewhere else.

I can’t describe what life is like, in the parks. I have never lived in one. They usually appear to be similar to any sectioned-off suburban development, with people tending to their yards or staying invisible inside. There are Park rules against most forms of disturbance, so you won’t encounter a lot of rowdiness in most cases. You don’t want to rock the boat when your right to the land is subject to the continued approval of the park management! Indeed, most people who want to make noise will avoid the MHPs and live elsewhere.

Most parks’ fees include garbage/recycling; some parks also pay for sewer and water, while others have metered connections. Hydro is almost always not included, I think. Some parks are connected to municipal water/sewer services, while others have big communal wells or septic systems. You pay some property tax when you own a mobile home - the Manufactured Home Tax Act ensures that you pay tax on the home itself as personal property, but you aren't taxed for the land if your home is in a manufactured home park where you pay rent.

Financing a mobile/manufactured home can be a bit trickier than a regular home because these homes depreciate faster, and because your interest in the land is not as “solid” for the banks in terms of collateral. It’s one reason why mobile homes are geared toward retired people – they have sold their old family home and are able to keep half of that money if they use the other half to buy a mobile home, mortgage-free.
