Active Retirees Downsize to Manufactured or Modular Home in 2010's RE Market
Seniors are saving thousands by selling their family homes and choosing Energy Star modular homes.
When active retirees pay cash, they can downsize and enjoy ranch-style 3 bedroom, 2-bath plans for $45,000. Choosing and ordering a manufactured home can take 6-7 weeks from start to finish in the complete set-up of the home. One South Carolina couple went through the Fleetwood home process last year and created a webpage, www.retirementhomessales.com, just to share their experience and answer questions for other retirees who are ready to downsize.
Active in 35 states, Cavco and the Fleetwood brand build homes that hold value.
Roger King, a Fleetwood representative in Hendersonville, NC says, “The merger of Fleetwood and Cavco has truly helped the homebuyer. Cavco has consolidated operational costs so pricing to the consumer remains competitive. If an active couple sells their family home and chooses to downsize to a new hybrid manufactured home, they can save $40-60,000 for their retirement.
If you are thinking of downsizing, call Roger at 828-698-6550 to view models in North Carolina, or call Georgie at 864-461-9226 in South Carolina. Floor plans can be emailed.

We are active retirees that spent 18 months searching for the perfect location and home for our retirement. Working with Cavco and the Fleetwood brand, we built a Springhill Model in South Carolina for $45,000.
