According to statistics released recently, manufactured and modular home sales make up approximately 7-8% of the total housing market. The Buildings Systems Council further reports that during the last 15 years, these type homes have increased in sales by almost 50%, faster than any other segment of the housing industry. This trend, according to Trevor McKay is certainly holding true in Antigonish, Nova Scotia.
According to TD Canada Trust, depending on the mortgage, 5-20% of the purchase price is required for a down payment on a home, with today's new mortgage rules. However, Trevor McKay of North Grant Park, a mini home park Antigonish establishment says they are currently able to help people get approved for mortgages easier than buyers ever thought possible. Says Mckay, "Helping good people navigate the murky waters of mortgage approval is our specialty. We consider it so important that we’ve put together a "New Home Buyer's Guide" that includes everything they need to know to get their mortgage approved faster and more easily than they thought possible."
