Why choose a manufactured home community?

Benefits of manufactured housing

A land-lease manufactured home community like Shelby West provides homeowners with affordable housing without the added expense of purchasing land.

When a manufactured home is placed within Shelby West, the homeowner owns the home and leases the land where the home is located. The monthly lease payment, or lot rent contributes to community amenities, as well as services like weekly trash removal, street snow plowing and annual lawn weed and feed. Shelby West is a great option for people who enjoy caring for a smaller yard and like the security of having neighbors close by. Shelby West also has an on-site community manager and maintenance workers for your needs.

Residents of Shelby West enjoy amenities such as the community clubhouse, swimming pool, 36 acre nature preserve, five acre lake, playground, park areas, an annual picnic, bus access to local Utica Community Schools and more!

Shelby West is located on 22 Mile Road between Van Dyke and Schoenherr in Shelby Township. Situated in the heart of Macomb County, Shelby Township offers excellent schools and top notch health care, not to mention countless recreation activities. Residents of Shelby Township enjoy the close proximity to The Mall at Partridge Creek, Lakeside Mall, CJ Barrymore’s, Jimmy John’s Field (home of the USPBL baseball league), numerous township and metro parks, and more! The surrounding Metro Detroit area provides additional recreation and employment opportunities–all within 50 miles.

Another benefit of leasing land is that your real estate taxes are paid for by the community owner and are included in the monthly lot rent fees. The individual homeowner only pays taxes on the value of his or her home, usually in the form of personal property tax.
