Can I purchase a new mobile home from you and place it in one of your parks?

Yes, we are happy to discuss purchasing options with you. We work closely with Eagle River Homes and Atlantic Homes to build manufactured homes to meet each individual buyer’s needs. We only allow single-wide mobile homes – double-wides are NOT permitted.


Who manages the community?

What happens when I want to sell my home?

You will notify our office that you intend to sell the unit. Any potential buyers would then need to fill out a Mobile Home Park Application and be approved prior to sale. Also, we have the Right of First Refusal on the sale of any units in our parks. Meaning, once you have a purchase and sale agreement, we can buy the unit from you at the agreed upon sale price between you and the potential buyer.


Are pets allowed in manufactured housing communities?

Yes, pets are allowed. Small to medium sized dogs are permitted. Dogs must be leashed at all times. They must be licensed with the town, and a copy of that license must be kept on file at our office. We will also need annual copies of rabies vaccinations. No Vicious dog breeds permitted.


What is included in the lot fee?

The lot fee includes use of the lot for your home, weekly trash pick-up, and snow removal serviced on the park roads in the winter (snow removal for your driveway is your responsibility).


What should I do to winterize my home?

We require that our residents apply heat tape every few years. There are other tips to help winterize your unit as well to help keep heating bills lower.


How do I pay my Lot Fee?

There are many ways to pay:

  • You can make ePayments via ACH or Credit/Debit Cards by accessing Tenant Web Access and creating a Tenant Web Access (TWA) account (click “Sign Up” below the login) or by downloading the rmResident App and logging in with your TWA account.
  • Mail or drop off a check or money order to our office.


What is the process for purchasing a home in one of your communities?

It depends on whether you are looking to purchase a new mobile home or one that’s already in one of our communities.

  • If you are looking to purchase a new manufactured home, you would need to contact our office at (413)664-1056 and set up a time to meet with our manager.
  • If you are looking to purchase a manufactured home that is already in one of our communities, you would need to find an owner that is selling one. We typically recommend driving through the park that you are interested in and seeing if there are any for sale signs.


Do you offer financing if I purchase a new manufactured home from you?

We do not offer financing directly, but we work closely with Priority Funding, who specialize as Manufactured and Mobile Home Lenders.
