I used to think just like you until I got married.
My in-laws were “poster children” mobile buyers. No credit when young and no family to help them get started.
They also just CHOSE a mobile.
You get in cheap and quick.
My brother in law bought a 14X70 3/2 mobile 21 years ago…so he could afford the 80 acres that went with it.
He now is a rodeo stock contractor, owns another business, has 80 acres paid off,leases more pasture for his bulls, has 2 daughters in college, has adopted and raised 2 kids,…
and he lives in the same mobile home.
Can he afford a nice house…yep.
He just dont want one!(I know how to say that correctly…I just don’t want too!)
He wants to spend his money another way.
So it isn’t just a credit thing. This same brother in law sold his half of a 700k payoff in a automotive shop…and still lives in a mobile home.
I really don’t understand it…it just happens.
