Take for instance, the Sunset Estates Mobile Home Community in Mountain View, CA is a peaceful and comfortable senior community. As you drive through the park, you will notice the properties have relatively large yards, which is a rarity with mobile home living and dramatically increases curb appeal.

Casa De Amigos, for example, is the ideal community for raising a family. Mobile Home Living provided a reasonable statement that when a park is managed correctly, with proper background checks and safety protocols, the entire community become a safety net for the children within the park. There are also neighborhood watch programs and a wide array of activities and amenities such as clubhouses, pools, tennis courts, and walking trails. It is noted that most communities in the Silicon Valley are well-kept and maintained by the professional community managers.

Living in a modern mobile home community offers much more than the average apartment complex and offers the same comfort and amenities much like a site built home. You also have the flexibility to customize your home on a much more spacious floor plan!

One of the advantages for living in a mobile home community, according to Mobile Home Maintenance Parts, is that it is much cheaper than buying or renting a traditional housing unit. Depending on the size of your family, it is possible to get some very spacious living quarters in an MHP, competing favorably with any living quarter you may get in a different setting.

6 Items Every Household Should Have

Image

Did you know most families are not prepared for an emergency? According to a Columbia University survey in 2011, respondents didn’t have basic emergency items such as water and flashlights. Below are recommended items any household should have to keep your family safe when faced with common hazards:

  1. Risk Detectors – Risk detectors should be installed to alert for smoke and carbon monoxide. Don’t forget to replace them as they may lose their sensitivity over time.
  2. Fire Extinguishers – Every household should have a fire extinguisher to control small fires in an emergency.  Not only is it important to have one in accessible locations, but learning how to use properly one is key.
  3. First Aid Kit – A first aid kit is a must for any emergency. Each kit will include basic supplies such as wound-dressing and antiseptics, but you should add extra medications specific to your family members.
  4. Battery-powered Flashlights and a Radio – In an event where the electricity is out for a long period you will need flashlights and a radio. Flashlights will aid in navigating through the dark and allow you and your family to travel to a safe location. Make sure to keep an extra set of batteries. A radio will all give you access to any important local and government updates.
  5. Food and Water Supplies – It is recommended by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to have at least one gallon of bottled water per family member per day. In addition, there should be enough nonperishable food items for your family (including pets) for at least three days.  Be sure to check your emergency food and water every six months for expiration dates.
  6. An Emergency Game Plan – Did you know most families do not have an emergency plan? Planning in the event of a fire, earthquake, or any other emergency will ensure each family member is aware of the proper steps to take and where to meet in case of an evacuation.
