What is a Trade-In?

tradein

Ever thought of upgrading to a new manufactured home? Simply put, now is the best time to buy a new home. The recession has really impacted the housing industry, which has not only driven prices down but also provided the motivation for innovation and great design improvements — a perfect combination for buyers. At Alliance Manufactured Homes, we offer a trade-in program to help you on your path towards owning a brand new, energy efficient home.

A trade-in is a transaction in which a homeowner sells their home to Alliance, and subsequently applies the proceeds of that sale toward the purchase of a brand new home to occupy the same space. In addition to designing and installing the new home, Alliance also removes the old home, thereby completing the transaction from start to finish.

A trade-in is ideal for someone who owns an older 60’s or 70’s mobile home. This option is especially attractive if the home is in need of repairs such as leaky roofs, rotted porches, termite damage, and so on. Rather than use all the time, effort, and money into improving your older home, use its equity to help you purchase a brand new home and start fresh!

Here are other amazing benefits to choosing a trade-in:

  • Design your new home to fit all your needs
  • Increase the value of your home
  • Reduce maintenance costs
  • Reduce utility costs
  • Tax deductible
  • Stay in your current space; keep your friendly neighbors, and your address!

So if you love your neighbors and your community, but would like the comfort and lifestyle that comes with a new home and value that is unrivaled on the market for any type of residence, now is the time to trade up!

Call us at (888) 874-8692 and see how easy it is to customize your brand new home!

Breakthrough in Bay Area Housing Sales

Growing home sales

According to a recent report the Bay Area’s housing marketing reached the highest level of sales in nearly seven years.

Realtor’s president, Errol Samuelson said, “You’re seeing the marketing start to stabilize, which is a really good thing”. While sellers are benefiting from the large yearly gain in sales prices, buyers are finding it easier to move into the market.

David Chung, a recent home buyer in Walnut Creek said, “We timed it well… These are incredibly low rates. I couldn’t be happier”.

Furthermore, Kevin Kieffer with Keller Williams in Danville states, “There’s enough owner-occupy buyers coming in to fill the gap, and they’re getting a better price”.
