Frequently Asked Questions

1. What are some things to look into when purchasing a piece of land for relocatable homes?

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 new destination.


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?

While re-leveling 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.
