What are the best trailer parks in Genesee County?
We were curious to see how people rated the places they live around Genesee County. Interestingly, there isn't a Yelp review for trailer parks or mobile home communities. So, we relied on Google.
Over 20 mobile home parks had ratings of 3.5 or higher in Genesee County. Some had mixed reviews, of course -- it's the internet, everything does. While you could tell other parks had recently been purchased and management was making improvements.
Are trailers or mobile homes cheaper than apartments to rent?
Lot rent, on top of a mortgage, for a mobile home is a little like owning a condo or home in a community with a Homeowner's Association. When you consider the total amount you'd pay per month, it's more likely to be on par with some apartment rents or a little less.
Comparing to a mortgage on a custom-built home with property, it would be less expensive.
