Using a dealer to install a new Mobile Home is a
must in many instances and is
law in California. We highly recommend using one
and not trying this complex task yourself.
How Mobile Home Dealers can help you:
They know what is available and how to order a
new manufactured home so that it will be what you want
They handle all of the legal title issues
They handle all of the measuring of the lot
and park clearance
They coordinate the transportation, lot
grading, installation, and final assembly

Choosing the right dealer
Most Mobile Home dealers will do an adequate job.
Some are crooks, and very, very few are actually really good
at what they do.
You must not just talk to any random Manufactured
Home dealer. Just because they are in the business does not
mean they will do a good job for you. Buyer beware is king
here - so do you home work.
Here is what you need to make sure of before
committing to buy a new home from a dealer:
This is a big sale for them, they are making a lot of money. Make them
work for it, but also you must be reasonable of your demands too, they
cannot work miracles.
Figure out what you want and make sure they
know it - ask them for advice and recommendations, but also ask why
they think so
Make sure they can commit to a time frame that
will work for you
Make sure you have
discussed a plan for errors and
changes (who pays for what)
Ask for some referals - past clients who have
gotten a new home installed by the dealer (call them!)

How the process works, and what to expect
First, you will contact a dealer either through an
advertisement or a referral. Make sure they are very clear
and explain the process to you upfront. You also should make
sure you can pay for the new home, so get pre-qualified if needed.
Second, you will sit down with them and discuss
ideas and wants that you have. They should put together some
floor plan examples that can fit your needs. You will then
narrow it down to one floor plan.
Next, you and the dealer will discuss moving walls
and all of the dimensions. Pushing a wall here, adding a
light there - it all makes a big difference when you move in.
Also, now is the time for major upgrades, such as drywall,
skylights, decks, awnings, etc.
A new home being installed
This is a dangerous
site - Do Not Enter
Then, the minor upgrades like cabinet hardware,
light fixtures, carpet, paint colors, etc. Most of these can
be changed down the road if needed quite easily.
When building a new home, there are always
unforseen changes and issues
that will come up - a lot of the time the color or texture ordered is
not 100% exactly like the sample you picked, so a little flexibilty on
your part is needed.
is the bottom line: Mobile Home Dealers can really help or
the process. Most know enough to do the job, but few are
looking out for you. Choosing the right one and doing your
homework upfront is the way to avoid problems.
