The Grissim Ratings Guide to Manufactured Homes: The essential buyer's resource, listing every builder in the U.S, their histories, products, prices ... information and much more (Second edition)
With this second edition of the most comprehensive ratings guide to every manufactured home builder in the U.S., journalist and consumer advocate John Grissim continues to provide the authoritative, accurate and up-to-date information that home shoppers need to make an informed buying decision—and which has made his guide the most popular consumer resource book ever published for buyers of manufactured homes. Completely revised and redesigned, The Grissim Ratings Guide to Manufactured Homes describes and evaluates all 63 U.S. builders, assigning each a construction rating. Scores of brands and series are described. Plus, an annotated construction chart with 56 criteria you can use to evaluate any home—before you buy. Each manufacturer’s listing includes: • Company background/history • States where sold • Principal market niche/target customer • Retail price range • Construction rating on a 1-to-10 scale • Useful comments on product offerings • What distinguishes brand from its competition • Web site rating and evaluation • Author's observations about the company, including authoritative, no-nonsense insights that have made him a respected industry observer and voice for the home-buying consumer. Note: Grissim, a journalist for more than three decades, is fiercely protective of his professional credibility. Accordingly, other than income derived from the sale of his books, he neither solicits nor accepts a dime (nor gifts or freebies) from the industry about which he writes. His readers have his assurance he intends to keep it that way. Exhaustively researched, and containing much information that many manufacturers would prefer you not know, The Grissim Ratings Guide to Manufactured Homes not only tells you who’s who in the manufactured home universe—enabling you to compare and evaluate their products—it will help you be informed, empowered and confident as you make the many decisions involved in the purchase of your new home.
