Affordable Senior Housing in South King County

Manufactured homes in 55+ mobile home parks are an attractive and affordable senior housing solution.  Parks offer a variety of community amenities, such as a club house for community events, swimming pools, sauna and hot tubs, exercise rooms, meeting or club rooms, RV parking, and on site storage.  Communities are typically gated and secured.  The parks screen your neighbors with a background and credit check - that doesn't happen in your usual neighborhood.

There are dozens of parks to choose from in South King county.  Lot rents vary from $450 to $800 per month, depending on the amenities provided and proximity to the Seattle/Eastside core, where relatives may live.  An attractive, remodeled mobile home can be purchase for $35,000 to $55,000.  If you compare the financing of this amount plus the lot rent, it compares favorably to renting a two bedroom apartment.  A mobile home gives you more privacy and space than an apartment.  You also own an asset: the mobile home could be moved (costs approximately $7,000), plopped on land you own, and rented out for 85% of what a site built home would bring.

Contact Bob Kelly for the latest listings and advice about parks and locations.
