Jim, I’m not sure where your located geographically,but I may be able to answer some of your questions. Pricing varies considerably. The farther North you go the more stringent the manufactured home (thermal, roof loads)building codes are as well as the installer codes. Both of which drive up price. Typical pricing in the upper midwest is:Single wides; unset(teardown)$550 Setup ; Block & level hookup water & sewer $800 vapor barrier under home (where applicable) $125 Anchoring (where applicable). $35 per tie down. Skirting $350 (labor only)Doublewides- Unset $1500 Setup-$2000 anchoring and skirting same as singles. Transporting 14’ wide and under $350 = $3 per mile 16’ wides $550 = $3 p.m. Many states finance companies aren’t allowed to sell to the consumer directly and must broker repos through a dealer.
