The U.S. Census Bureau reports the average sale price of a new manufactured home was $88,200 in August 2020, the most recent average price available.

The Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis reports the median sale price of a new house sold in August 2020 was $325,500, and prices continue to climb – in November 2020 the median sale price nationwide was $335,300.
