"Is there a difference between a mobile home and a manufactured home?" is one of the most common questions we get online and in person. Today, many people use mobile home and manufactured home interchangeably. That's understandable because both types of homes share similar features and benefits for homeowners. However, understanding the minor differences can be valuable when searching for a new place to call home.
Unlike site-built homes, manufactured homes are built in a factory. Once completed, they're shipped to a specific location where the homeowner will live. The term "manufactured home" refers to any factory-built home constructed after June 15, 1976. That date is when the HUD or U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development implemented guidelines centered around manufactured home construction.
HUD code requires manufactured homes to be constructed on a base frame with wheels with a minimum of 320 square feet.
Thanks to fast build times and lower material costs, manufactured homes for sale in Conway, SC is often more cost-effective for home buyers. Compared to traditional site-built homes, many manufactured homes can be up to 35% less than more traditional houses.
Any mobile homes built after June 15, 1976, are considered manufactured homes today, though many people use the term mobile home casually. In the past, these homes were used to travel and were more like the expensive RVs that people use today than true manufactured homes. Back then, mobile homes received a bad reputation due to poor build quality, but they've come a long way since that time. Today, mobile homes are safe, comfortable, and structurally sound, with many types of amenities and floor plans.
Manufactured homes are more popular in the U.S. than ever, and for good reason: prospective homeowners are looking for affordable, quality alternatives to traditional homes. That's especially true today, with inflation on the rise, necessitating more budget-friendly options for anyone who wants to put a roof over their heads.
If you're used to living in a traditional, site-built home, you may be wondering what the advantages are of buying a manufactured home. Here are just a few of the most common benefits of buying a manufactured home:
When you boil it down to the basics, buying a new home is all about the money. One of the most attractive reasons for buying a manufactured home is that they are often much less expensive than traditional site-built homes. Today, manufactured housing is considered a crucial part of the housing shortage solution and a viable option with inflation rising. According to statistics, the average square-foot cost of a site-built home is $107, while the average price is only $49 in a manufactured home. Whether you're sticking to a strict budget or your finances have changed due to poor economic conditions, going manufactured might be your best choice.
Owning a manufactured home gives the homeowner long-term living options. Because basic manufactured homes are usually very affordable, families with enough land can start with a small home and add additional units as their needs change. Manufactured homes are also great as starter homes, especially for families that plan on building a permanent structure on their land in the future. Though it could be logistically challenging, manufactured homes can also be moved to a different site if the initial one was on rented property.
Manufactured homes have received a bad rap over the last few decades. In reality, most manufactured homes are purpose-built for longevity with structural integrity. Every manufactured home built today is subject to the HUD code adopted in 1976. This code is the only federally-mandated code in existence. It was designed to ensure that manufactured homes meet strict standards regarding fire safety, structural design, energy efficiency, transportation to home sites, and overall construction. All manufactured homes sold in the U.S. have a permanent red seal to confirm they meet HUD standards.
When you buy a manufactured home, you may be able to move in faster than you would via traditional routes. Some manufactured homes are even move-in ready in less than 45 days. Compared to a traditional home, once a new manufactured home is built in the factory, buyers usually find that installation is a quick process. Once the manufactured home is delivered, utility work usually moves quickly, regardless of whether you're moving to a park or transporting your home to a piece of land. Before you know it, you're eating, sleeping, and enjoying life in your new manufactured home.
When asked about the pros and cons, many buyers cite energy efficiency as one of the most significant benefits of owning a manufactured home. In general, manufactured housing is more energy efficient than traditional because HUD mandates ensure that homes have high energy efficiency ratings.
These ratings are achieved through upgraded insulation installation, on-demand water heaters, and energy-efficient windows. These upgrades often make entire manufactured homes Energy Star certified. It's no surprise that manufactured homes are 27% more efficient than they used to be with other additions like energy-saving appliances in kitchens and bathrooms.
If you've ever lived in an apartment complex before, chances are you heard sounds and noises through your walls that you never wanted to hear. If you hate hearing your neighbors and despise thin walls, looking for mobile home sales in Conway, SC is a great idea. Why? Manufactured homes are typically built using separate modules, which reduces sound transference from room to room. When two or more modules are combined and insulated separately, buyers enjoy an even quieter, stronger home with less outside noise.
If there's one disappointing aspect of manufactured homes, the stigma seems to surround them. Yes, mobile homes from 30 or more years ago aren't exactly marvels of construction and deserve to be criticized. However, modern manufactured homes are cut from a different cloth and are often every bit as safe and luxurious as site-built homes.
Here are some of the most common (and annoying) mobile home myths debunked:
Modern manufactured homes are factory-built homes crafted with quality materials that meet comprehensive federal construction and safety standards. These standards, called the "HUD Code," outline how the homes must be built, including safety guidelines. For example, manufactured home builders must take strict measures to ensure their homes are resistant to wind. In terms of hurricanes and tornados, having such measures in place can prevent a tragedy from happening.
The bottom line is that manufactured homes are plenty safe and provide a quality product to people who want a lower-cost option over traditional housing.
One of the most repeated myths surrounding manufactured homes is that they are in poor shape and have an overall poor quality. Today, many manufactured homes are built with quality materials and care. It's not unusual to find a manufactured home with luxurious amenities and features lie state-of-the-art kitchens, high-end appliances, and chic open floor plans. At Ken-Co Homes, we can provide you with a complete list of available upgrades and amenities for you to enjoy in your new home.
Perhaps it's due to their popularity and lower prices, but we often hear that it's hard to find manufactured homes for sale. As seasoned home dealers, we can say this is categorically false. Whether you head over to Google and search for "mobile homes near me in Conway, SC," or simply head to Ken-Co Homes' website, you'll see plenty of homes to choose from. Contact our office today for a full list of our homes for sale!
When it comes to home prices in today's day and age, manufactured homes are among the most affordable options available.
That's because manufactured homes cost less to construct than site-built homes, with the average price costing $92K for new construction and $60K for a pre-owned manufactured home, according to recent data. The cost of a traditional home is much higher, with an average of $408K, according to Statista data from 2021. Even though manufactured home living costs change depending on the community, they're often much less expensive than their site-built cousins in the long run.
This myth parallels the stereotype that manufactured homes are cheap and poorly built. Unfortunately, many people still believe that living in a manufactured home community isn't safe. They think that the parks are run down and riddled with reprobates. In reality, many manufactured home parks mimic gated communities with 24-hour security and mandated quiet hours. Some manufactured home neighborhoods even offer community-wide amenities like spas and pools. If you're a fan of the gated community lifestyle but don't want to pay hundreds of thousands for a site-built home, a manufactured home community could be your best bet.
Are you giving serious thought to buying a manufactured home for sale in South Carolina? You're not alone - more than 365K people in the Palmetto State live in manufactured homes. At Ken-Co Homes Inc., we're not your average run-of-the-mill manufactured home dealer.

ABOUT THE CHANTS • Coastal Carolina enters the road contest at 4-3 on the season and is coming off a series win over the Creighton Bluejays last weekend. • In Coastal's four wins this season, the Chanticleers have scored double-digit runs, including a season-high 14 runs three times. • In CCU's three losses, the Chants have scored five runs or less in the contest. • CCU's offense has nine players hitting .300 or better on the season, led by senior Tanner Garrison (.750), who is 9-for-12 with a 1.250 slugging percentage. • The injury plague has already struck the Chants, as three Opening Day starters missed some action last weekend, while the pitching staff has been decimated to start the season.
ABOUT THE COUGARS • College of Charleston is 3-3 on the season, with all six games to date having been played at home at the Baseball Stadium at Patriots Point. • The Cougars opened the season with a season-opening win over then-No. 14 Virginia Tech (Feb. 17) and bounced back from three-straight losses to win each of their last two contests versus UMBC (Feb. 25-26). • Overall, Charleston's offense is hitting .276 as a team with only 14 extra-base hits and 29 RBIs. • The pitching staff has held their opponents to a .231 batting average, having allowed just 18 extra-base hits and posting a 4.83 ERA over 54.0 innings pitched.

CONWAY, S.C. – After scoring 14 runs in wins in each of the first two games of the three-game series this weekend versus Creighton, the Chanticleers had just five runs on eight hits in a 10-5 loss on Sunday afternoon in the series finale at Springs Brooks Stadium.
Coastal's offense was once again led by senior Tanner Garrison (3-for-4, HR, 3 RBIs, 2 runs) as he followed up his four-hit performance on Saturday with three hits, including a home run, and three RBIs on Sunday.
The other two Coastal RBIs came from the top of the order in Blake Barthol (0-for-3, SF, HBP, RBI) and Chad Born (1-for-4, RBI), while both Graham Brown (1-for-4, 2B, run) and Ty Dooley (1-for-2, run) each had a double on the day.
The Bluejays were led at the plate by Sterling Hayes (4-for-5, 2 2B, 3 RBIs, run), Ben North (2-for-4, 2B, 2 RBIs, run), and Andrew Meggs (1-for-5, BB, 2 RBIs, run), who all had multiple RBIs in the win.
CCU reliever Colin Yablonski (0-1) was saddled with the loss, as he gave up one run on two hits over 0.1 of an inning after entering the contest with no outs and the bases loaded in the top of the seventh.
Making his first career start, left-handed hurler Levi Huesman went 4.0-complete innings, allowing one run on four hits, three walks, and three strikeouts.
Creighton reliever Paul Bergstrom (1-0) earned his first win of the season out of the bullpen, as he held the Chants' offense to just one hit with three strikeouts over the final 3.1 innings of the game.
Looking to avoid the series sweep, the Bluejays scored first in the top of the second on a one-out single, walk, hit batter, and a sacrifice fly from North to take a 1-0 lead.
The Chants, who went down in order in each of the first two innings, battled back to take their first lead of the game in the bottom of the third on a Barthol sacrifice fly and a two-out RBI single to right field from Born to put the home team on top 2-1 after three innings played.
CCU's Huesman pitched around a lead-off single in the top of the fourth with the help of a pickoff at first base by catcher Garrison, while fellow freshman pitcher Liam Doyle recorded a 1-2-3 fifth to keep the Chants in front 2-1.
Garrison doubled the Chants lead at 3-1 with a solo home run in the bottom of the fifth inning before the Bluejays took advantage of a double, a Coastal fielding error, a hit-by-pitch, and a passed ball to get the run back in the top of the sixth to cut the lead back to one at 3-2.
It would be Garrison again that would come up big for the Chants at the plate, as the Elgin, S.C., native laced a bases-loaded two-run single to right-center field to push the home team out in front by three at 5-2 with three innings to play.
However, the Bluejays broke the game open in the top of the seventh, as each of the first six hitters in the inning reached base safely. Hayes delivered a bases-loaded two-run single through the left side, while Nolan Clifford followed with an RBI double to right field to tie the game up at 5-5.
Three batters later, North laced a two-out single past a diving Coastal infielder and through the left side to give the Bluejays the lead back at 6-5 heading into the seventh-inning stretch.
The Chanticleers went down in order in each of the last three innings, while Creighton tacked on one insurance run in the eighth on an RBI double off the bat of Hayes and three more in the ninth on a two-run single by Meggs and a balk to put the final score at 10-5.
The Chanticleers stranded five runners on base compared to 11 by the Bluejays.
Creighton's pitching staff did not issue a walk for the game, while Coastal's arms walked seven hitters.
Coastal (4-3) will hit the road for the first time this season to take on the College of Charleston Cougars (3-3) on Tuesday, Feb. 28, at 4 p.m. ET in Mt. Pleasant, S.C.

Conway, S.C. (February 26, 2023)—Mount St. Mary's earned a doubleheader split with host Coastal Carolina on Sunday in the final day of the Chanticleer Showdown. After falling to 6-1 in the opening game, the Mount came through with a 3-2 win in game two. The Mount finished the tournament with a 2-2 record.
GAME 1: Coastal Carolina 6, Mount St. Mary's 1 The Mountaineers dropped the opening game of today's doubleheader, 6-1, to the Chanticleers. The Mountaineers were held to two hits in the game.
Coastal Carolina (13-2) broke through with four runs over the first two innings off Mount starter Olivia Murphy. Iyania De Jesus had an RBI single in the first and Diamond Williams hit a two-run homer as part of the three-runs second. Coastal Carolina added a run in the third for a 5-0 lead.
The Mount got on the scoreboard in the fifth when Zoe Wilcox reached on a bunt single, advancing all the way to third after an error by the catcher. Abigayle Perry was hit by a pitch to put runners on the corners with two outs, and the duo of Mount runners executed a double steal to make it a 5-1 game.
De Jesus closed out the scoring with an RBI single in the bottom of the sixth.
Maddie Coleman pitched the final four innings for the Mount, allowing a pair of runs with a pair of strikeouts. Murphy had four strikeouts in her two innings of work. Wilcox and Maggie Kane each had a hit in the loss.
GAME 2: Mount St. Mary's 3, Coastal Carolina 2
The Mountaineers responded in game two with a 3-2 victory over Coastal Carolina. Avery Neuhart tossed a complete game to earn the win while Lia Festa and Julia Vincent each had RBI singles in the Mount's two-run seventh inning that secured the win.
Mount St. Mary's broke out on top with a run in the top of the first inning. Abigayle Perry continued her torrid start to the season with a leadoff double. After Vincent moved her to third with a sacrifice bunt, Perry scored when she beat the throw home on Brianna Manni's RBI fielder's choice. Perry went 7-for-10 (.700) with a .786 on-base percentage in the four games for the Mount in the tournament.
The Chanticleers tied the score in the bottom of the second on an RBI groundout, and from there, the game remain tied all the way until the seventh inning. The Mount defense shined in the game, including Laurenne Gallagher robbing Coastal Carolina's Delaney Keith when she reached over the fence to deny a home run.
The Mount scored twice in the top of the seventh to take a 3-1 lead. Gina Del Giorno led off with a pinch hit single, and she moved to second on a Gallagher sacrifice bunt. After a passed ball moved Del Giorno to third, Lia Festa came through with a base hit to left center to give the mount the lead. After Maggie Kane grounded into a fielder's choice, Perry singled to put runners on first and second for Vincent, who singled home Kane with a key insurance run.
Coastal Carolina's Indya Smith cut the Mount's lead in half with a one-out RBI double in the bottom of the seventh, but Neuhart was able to retired the final two batters to preserve the win.
Perry and Hannah Gartrell each went 2-for-3 at the plate to pace the Mount offense. Neuhart allowed six hits and one earned run to pick up the complete-game win.
Up Next: The Mountaineers return to action at the Ole Miss Classic on March 3-5. The Mount plays Southeast Missouri and Ole Miss on the opening day of the tournament.

CONWAY, S.C. (WPDE) — It's that time of year when you might dig in your medicine cabinet, looking for allergy medicine because of pollen.
Almost 80% of the world's food crops need to be pollinated, and while you probably appreciate the options you have in the produce section of a grocery store; you probably don't appreciate the way pollen affects you- and you're not alone.

Many are taking a natural approach to help ease their symptoms, and we're here to give you the buzz on how local honey may help your allergies.
Mountain Man Honey and Goods in downtown Conway said they've seen an increase in customers coming into the store recently and asking for local honey.
They said Coastal Carolina University students have been the majority of those coming in, since many students are out-of-state, and are trying to acclimate their bodies to the environment.
"We've definitely seen an increase in sales, especially in our quarts because allergy season is upon us. We get a lot of people from Coastal Carolina, actually before they even come to school, we end up sending honey up North so they can get started on the honey before they get here," Kim Wolf, Mountain Honey employee, said.
When bees make honey, pollen particles from plants they've pollinated make their way into the honey.
"Some of that pollen remains in the hive and gets into the honey. So, you're actually getting little bits of local flora when you take the honey. So, it builds up in your system and helps with allergies," Wolf said.
South Carolina is one of the worst states to live in for allergies, according to The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA).
SUGGESTED: HC Sheriff's Office & ICE have an agreement: here's what it means for immigration laws
Conway resident Bobby Marks used to live in Tennessee and said his allergies flared up when he moved here.
"Never had allergies in my life, until I moved here. I don't know if it's the tree pollen, or what it is. Never had one allergy. Then when I moved here after a few years, all of the sudden-the eyes and everything," he said.
Millions of Americans suffer from allergies every year, experiencing symptoms like sneezing, nasal congestion, and itchy eyes.
"I talk to people at work and they say the same thing. They're like, 'where do you get your local honey?' Because it needs to be local, you can't buy it from the store- it needs to be local," Marks said.
The AAFA said honey doesn't help with allergies because the pollen bees gather is not the same pollen responsible for allergies.
Marks claims honey does help and he doesn't have to take an allergy pill anymore because it's just not as effective.

CONWAY, S.C. – Old Dominion women's basketball held a nine-point lead with 5:44 to go in the third quarter, but could not hold off Coastal Carolina in the fourth as the Monarchs fell on the road 76-68 at The HTC Center."This was a game where you have to tip your hat to Coastal Carolina because they came out and they played with energy and they seemed motivated," said head coach ...
CONWAY, S.C. – Old Dominion women's basketball held a nine-point lead with 5:44 to go in the third quarter, but could not hold off Coastal Carolina in the fourth as the Monarchs fell on the road 76-68 at The HTC Center.
"This was a game where you have to tip your hat to Coastal Carolina because they came out and they played with energy and they seemed motivated," said head coach DeLisha Milton-Jones. "Was it senior night or was it the fact that they could get a great statement win to finish out their regular season at home? I don't know. But ODU women's basketball did not rise to the occasion in the manner that I as their coach would expect them to do so."
The loss means ODU (20-11 overall, 12-6 Sun Belt) will be seeded fifth in next week's Sun Belt Conference Championship at the Pensacola Bay Center in Pensacola, Florida. ODU will meet either Georgia State or South Alabama Wednesday at 3 p.m. in the second round.
Georgia State and South Alabama meet Tuesday in a first-round game. ODU would have to win four games in six days to win the league championship and an automatic bid to the NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament.
An Amari Young jumper gave the Monarchs a 45-36 lead with 5:44 to go in the third quarter. A Deaja Richardson three-pointer then opened up a 10-0 run for the host Chanticleers (14-15, 9-9). A pair of buckets from Young and Taleah Washington put ODU back in front, 49-46, but Coastal made a pair of free throws and added a layup just before the buzzer to take a 50-49 lead into the final 10 minutes.
The Monarchs kept it close early in the fourth, and a Jordan McLaughlin make from the perimeter got ODU to within a point at 60-59 (5:19). After CCU went up 64-59, Young converted 3-of-4 shots at the line before a Makayla Dickens long ball put ODU in front, 65-64 with 2:53 to play. That was the last time the Monarchs led though as Coastal used a 9-2 swing to pull away 73-67 with 22 seconds left. Young got to the line again with 10 seconds on the clock, but the deficit was too large at 73-68 and the Monarchs were unable to catch their opponent.
"We fouled two three-point shooters, we get a technical at a critical moment in the game, and we allow emotions to overcome us," continued Milton-Jones. "So what if the fouls are imbalanced, 35 to 13 in terms of free throw attempts? We still had a chance to win. So what if we turn them over 25 times and us 15? We still had a chance to win. So this game is solely on us and our lack of awareness to manage the game and understand that we have a nine-point lead. We can't just give that away with bonehead plays."
Young led ODU in the loss with 17 points, seven rebounds, one assist, one block and two steals. Dickens made four shots from distance and also finished in double figures with 14 points, adding one board and one assist to her totals. Kaye Clark and Brianna Jackson were next with nine points each, and McLaughlin contributed eight points.
Coastal Carolina outscored ODU, 18-15, in the opening quarter, but the Monarchs won the second, 17-12, to take a 32-30 lead at halftime.
Game Notes - ODU caused 25 Coastal turnovers, but was only able to turn them into 14 points. - Free throw shooting proved to be critical on the night. Coastal converted 28-of-35 shots at the line, whereas ODU finished 8-for-13. - The game featured seven ties and 15 lead changes. - ODU held the lead for 24:48, compared to 12:24 for CCU. - With the loss, ODU finishes the regular season with a 7-7 mark on the road. - Young now has 1,141 career rebounds and needs 26 more to tie Nancy Lieberman for fourth place on the program's all-time leading rebounders list.
