What are the benefits of purchasing an off-site built home?
Imagine you order a car from a dealership. The next day, you open your front door to find hundreds of parts and tools on you front lawn and a couple guys assembling them. We’re pretty sure you’d cancel your order!
And yet, that is how most homes are built in this country. By contrast, all of our homes are built on an assembly line in a climate-controlled setting by specialized craftspeople. This process reduces waste, contractor mistakes, and cost to you, the buyer.
All of our homes feature top-quality construction materials and are approved by a third party inspector with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The single-story designs are meant to maximize convenience and energy efficiency while minimizing maintenance and upkeep.
Finally, because you’re only buying the home and not the land, you’re saving a substantial amount of money that would otherwise be spent on land, transaction costs, and property taxes.
How much does it cost to buy a home?
Our homes start in the $90,000s + 2.75% sales tax.
Do you offer financing?
Please reach out for a reference to a third party lender. We are happy to walk you through the financing process. Please note that our homes are not eligible for traditional mortgages.
Who qualifies for financing?
Though each lender has it own unique requirements, applicants generally need income of at least about $4,000/month, a credit score of 580+, and a down payment of at least 5% of the home’s price.
How large are the homes you offer?
We offer 1 and 2 bedroom floor plans that range from 468-910 square feet + front porches. Though not “tiny,” these homes will appeal for those looking to live a simple and convenient lifestyle. For most home sites, you will have the option of building an addition after delivery if desired. Storage sheds that meet our aesthetic guidelines are also allowed.

Sanctuary at Green Mountain is a 55+ age-restricted community. Each new household is required to have at least one individual who is age 55 or older. No residents may be under age 18. Children are welcome as guests on a short-term basis.
Can I rent out my home?
In order to support a sense of community, safety, and stability, we are restricting residency to owner-occupants. As such, we are not selling to investors or permitting subleases. We may allow certain exceptions, such as subleases to family members or rentals in lots #1-8 (i.e., the lots outside the gates).

Carports are allowed, but not garages.
Are pets allowed?
Absolutely! We even offer a dog park within the community. Pets are allowed unless they have a history of aggressive behavior or are an aggressive breed.
