Unscrupulous dealers regularly charge home buyers thousands more for their homes than they should. Among the many additions to this second edition are a greatly expanded discussion on selecting the right home, including a new glossary of common terms used in manufactured home construction, plus a new three-page Construction Features and Specifications Comparison Table with 56 criteria. This table enables you not only to identify what features are associated with different levels of quality but also to determine the construction quality on a 1-to scale of any home you are evaluating independent of what any sales person may claim.

This same table is also in The Grissim Ratings Guide, and is by far the most comprehensive detailed listing of construction features and quality ever provided consumers. Among many topics receiving an expanded discussion in this second edition: the installation or set-up process and the role of the set-up contractor, including a detailed installation check-list for home buyers.

Warranty issues, and how to deal with them, receive added emphasis. Tips to better calculate the fair asking price for a home, together with a simple formula for determining your offering price during negotiations.

In short, this guide contains all the information and tools you will need to confidently—and successfully—go through the home buying process.
