Private Land

Owning the property under which a new mini home is setup can be attractive to many buyers. Owning your own land may make it easier to qualify for conventional financing, and the land and home together may increase in value faster than owning a home alone.

Before You Buy

Do you have a property in mind that you think would be good for your home? Before you buy, there are some things to consider:

  • Placement of the home on the property - Will the site accommodate the home selected?
  • Access to the site -Homes are delivered on heavy, oversized trucks, so road access is important.
  • Zoning, permits, development fees - Are there any regulations or restrictions that would keep you from installing your home on this location?
  • Utility location - Is there access to gas, electricity, water, sewer or space for a septic system, and all other utilities you need?
  • Preparing the site - The land needs to be cleared, graded, and serviced to be made ready to accommodate your new home; have you considered all the costs?

If you have any questions about whether or not your land would make a convenient mini home site, give Havill’s a call and speak to one of our knowledgeable home consultants for advice. We can even arrange to scope your location, for free.
