In the context of manufactured housing, the term “single-wide” means exactly what it implies – a quality single-section, manufactured home built to HUD Code standards. A single wide home doesn’t require home buyers to sacrifice luxury or quality simply because their home is smaller. In fact, single wides can include as many rooms and amenities as larger double or triple wide manufactured homes. However, a single wide home typically has a lower starting price and a shorter build time. This is simply because building it requires less material. Single wides are a perfect option for a first-time home buyer, single individuals, or couples. These homes are also a great fit for those looking to purchase a getaway home out of state.
