So, you are gearing up to purchase your new home? We are extremely glad you’ve come here to begin the research and planning process. There are a thousand things on your checklist right now so we wanted to give you some tips to streamline your experience and ensure you make the best decision for your lifestyle, budget, vision, and ultimately your happy-ever-after.
✓ Ask what the property has to offer your unique lifestyle and make sure the amenities meet your vision. Check out all amenities onsite such as golf courses, pools, sports courts, and gathering areas.
✓ Ask to see the current activities calendar and envision yourself joining in on things like trivia night, crafting, ice cream socials, holiday parties, and more.
✓ Ask if your home comes furnished and find out the specifications on furniture, furnishings, and appliances.
✓ Do a thorough walk-through and check the quality of the A/C and heat components.
✓ Ask about the community protocol should you ever need to sell your home in the future.
✓ If it is a pre-owned home, it is important to know when the roof was installed. Some insurance companies require a roof inspection in order to be insured.
✓ Look for these upgrades when shopping for your home: shingled/pitched roofing, insulation, drywall, siding (preferably vinyl), wood flooring, and/or built-in water cutoff valves.
✓ Ask about the pet policy and how it pertains to you. All Cove Communities are pet-friendly, we do recommend you understand the rules and request a copy of the pet policy.
✓ Find out all the fees and costs associated with ownership. Each property will vary but remember to ask about all the costs including taxes, titles, application, and lot fees. Set your budget and research financing options/lenders so you are confident and comfortable when you are ready to purchase your manufactured home.
✓ Don’t be afraid to ask about any special offers or packages that can give you a boost in the right direction for your move-in.
✓ Remember, when it comes to garnering information about your home, there is no such thing as a question. Ask everything and anything that you are even remotely curious about.
