About Us

At The Housing Mart, it all begins with your manufactured or modular home selection. We will schedule a meeting with one of our representatives, yourself, and a contractor at your home site, to determine your personal needs. After the home is ordered, we begin preparing your property for your desired improvements. We are a “turn key” developer, which means we can do anything and everything on your property, from permit to certificate of occupancy. We communicate with you, the customer, to facilitate a seamless process for home delivery. Our customization options include custom wall foundations, skirting products, gutters, tie-downs, heat pumps, decks, patios, and sidewalks, even power, well, and septic design and installation - and much, much more. After delivery, our service professionals will set up your manufactured home, ensuring that all processes are performed and quality is assured at all levels. Finally, a full walk-through is performed and each home receives a detailed on-site inspection of the exterior and interior. Our reputation speaks for us. For over 25 years, we have received local and national awards for customer satisfaction. We strive to make each customer’s home purchase a fulfilling one.

Need Financing?

The Housing Mart works closely with the lender that you select which best serves your needs from your initial meeting through the closing on your loan. The lenders that The Housing Mart recommends specialize in Manufactured and Modular home loans. The lenders that are available research and keep current on all types of loans and loan sources to provide our customers with the very best loan terms and rates on the market. Below we have outlined the typical steps that take place for each customers loan process. After the customer has selected their home with the Housing Specialist and has selected their lender, the lender will review the customers credit application, finance requirements and documents needed. The lender educates the customer on types of loans available, rates and terms and also reviews their credit report with them and provides advice on how they can improve any items that may be in question or disputed. After the financing has been approved, The Housing Mart Sales Manager will order the home from the factory. When the home is built and ready to ship from the factory, the Sales Manager will oversee the set-up of the home, communicate with Housing Mart delivery personnel, the bank and the customer to ensure a smooth process and to minimize delays. The Housing Mart has been working with customers and lenders to find the best financing since 1984 and will be happy to use our experience to benefit you.

What They Say About Us

"When I first went looking for homes I had looked at a few other places, but I kept coming back to The Housing Mart. They were very patient with me. They understand that buying a home isn't something you do everyday, so it has to be the way you want it."
