Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between a mobile home and a manufactured home?
The term "Mobile Home" or "Trailer" is only used for homes that were manufactured in a factory prior to the year 1976. That is when the Federal Government set a number of standards in regards to the construction of the homes. The proper term for any factory built house that is built after 1976, and is based on a permanent steel beam structure is "Manufactured Home".
What are the advantages of living in a mobile home or manufactured home?
There are several advantages to buying and living in a manufactured home. Probably the biggest advantage is cost. When a manufactured home is purchased in a community, the purchaser does not need to purchase the land (which is usually the most expensive part). The purchaser would buy the home and lease the land from the community. The lease fees involved are generally less expensive than the costs of purchasing the land. There is also a large difference in property taxes. A home located in a manufactured home community only pays property taxes on the value of the home, not the land. Therefore the monthly taxes will be much less than any other type of housing. Manufactured homes are perfect for anyone. Whether it’s someone just starting out on their own, or the buyers are on a fixed income, manufactured housing is a very affordable alternative to renting.
Another advantage is the wonderful sense of community that one gets in a manufactured home community. Our community is very friendly, safe, quiet, and clean. Our residents can take pride in their home and their home community.
Can I move my home to another location if I want?
The answer is "Yes". However, it is very expensive to move a mobile or manufactured home. A professional mobile home mover would need to be contacted to do the work. Generally the mobile home mover is able to disconnect the utilities prior to removing the home from the site, but that is determined by the local building inspector.
Are your rules enforced?
Yes. Many residents move to our community because of our community standards and the stability the rules create within the neighborhood.
Is there an application?
Yes, prospective tenants must complete an application and be approved prior to living in the park. There is a fee for the application to be processed by a National Tenant Network or a similar credit and residency checking bureau. The application is located on the application link under the "Resources" tab.
Can I bring in a used mobile home?
Yes, but Worsham Mobile Home Park staff must inspect the home before it can be brought into the park. Homes that require extensive work will not be approved...the work must be completed prior to the home being brought into the park.
May I sell my mobile home to someone and leave it in the park?
Yes, but only if the home has been inspected and approved and the prospective buyers have been approved to live in the park.
Will I get my security deposit back when I move?
If you do not break your lease, provide a written notice 60 days before moving and leave your lot clean, you will receive your security deposit back. This information is in the lease and in the Rules and Regulations.
May I park my RV in this park?
This mobile home park is designed to be a more stable, not transient community. RVs are not permitted.
