While no universal answer exists for all markets the default answer to this question regardless of location is usually condos, mobile homes, and new construction when the traditional single family homes are not available. Condos are an excellent solution for many scenarios but for some financing can be tricky and condos can carry large homeowner’s association fees ("HOA fees" and related assessments) that offset and frequently outweigh any advantage in lower price. A different set of financing challenges apply to mobile homes on top of concerns of safety and depreciation. Traditional construction can be an excellent option for many but the process of finding plans, a builder, and a lot to build can be unrealistic or unfeasible considering the average build time of 9-12 months.Recognizing these and other shortcomings combined with the demand short and long-term demand for affordable housing a very different answer named Little Custom Homes of Alabama has emerged with a highly unique single family solution.
