Land-Lease Lifestyle Benefits

Many New Jersey home buyers site their new manufactured homes in planned developments where they typically own the home as personal property and lease a home site from the company responsible for maintaining community amenities and services, including security, clubhouses, pools, spas and common areas. One hundred and fifty communities are members of the New Jersey Manufactured Housing Association offering a wide variety of lifestyles. Our communities have a vested interest in maintaining the grounds and the desirability of their neighborhoods providing protection for your investment.

You can find an NJMHA community for families or one that is age restricted. Many communities allow pets. Some are near the beach and others are in the mountains. Look for a community in a metropolitan area near public transportation or one in a rural area. Land lease communities are a viable retirement living option for many offering ease along with activities such as day trips, arts and crafts, bridge, line dancing, Mah Jog, Bingo, bowling leagues, shuffle board, swimming and much more. Young families who dream of home ownership can live in a three bedroom two bathroom manufactured home for a similar cost to a one-bedroom apartment. A number of our communities have swimming pools and playgrounds.

Compare the cost of owning land with leasing and you will discover serious savings. With land lease, there are no land taxes, permit costs and, in most cases, no homeowner association dues. In manufactured home communities, many of the “chores” that you would normally be responsible for can be taken care of by the community. Low monthly land lease fees can include property taxes, trash removal, yard debris removal, lawn service, a portion or all of the sewer and water expense, and even savings on your cable bill. Our community owners and managers are happy to meet new home seekers and share the benefits to living in their communities.
