I am thinking about buying some acreage and putting a super deluxe manufactured home on it. it is view-able online by googling "the patriot clayton homes". everything you see comes standard, there are no changes allowed. an amish company ( i think called dutch) makes the exact same home but will put it on a wooden base instead of a steel base. i would then have it permanently attached to a basement. my question is, with the base modification and being attached to a basement, would it appraise differently than a regular mobile home and would it appreciate in value over time like a regular house (maybe at a slightly lower percentage) so i wont be wasting the $85000 cost of the home? this will be in ohio, morrow county, close to mt gilead. i am looking at this option because there is nothing to chose from on the MLS and i dont think i can afford a stick built home. any advise is appreciated.
