Single Wide Homes for Sale in Grand Rapids, MI

January 20, 2021

Single Wide Manufactured Homes Available in Michigan

What Is a Single Wide Home?

Single wides are pre-manufactured homes that are built in a single section before being transported as a whole to their intended destination. 

How Big Is a Single Wide?

Single wides are by definition smaller than double wides, but they still offer lots of comfortable living space for a prefab home. 

Square Footage

The biggest single wides we sell are 16 feet wide and 76 feet long. Typically, the average single wide can offer anywhere from 700–1,200 square feet.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms

It’s a common misconception that only double wides offer multiple bedrooms and bathrooms. However, single wides can fit multiple beds and baths while still prioritizing comfort and spaciousness. Our single wide units typically have anywhere from two to four bedrooms and often have two bathrooms.

Custom Manufactured Homes in Michigan

Did you know you can customize your single wide? At Preferred Homes, we offer complete flexibility when it comes to customization. Let us know what you’re looking for, and we can help make it happen!

Interior Customization Options

Inside your single wide, you have many options for customization, including:

  • Adding or removing rooms
  • Your choice of cabinets
  • Changing the walls
  • Your choice of appliances
  • Adding a fireplace
  • Upgrading to luxury furnishings


Exterior Customization

Expand the square footage of your single wide with outdoor living spaces like:

  • Decks
  • Porches
  • Patios
  • Garage
  • Sunrooms


Where to Build Your Single Wide

Prefab homes in Michigan can be installed in a manufactured home park or on private property. You can choose to build them on top of a slab or even a block foundation so they look more like traditional houses. Generally, single wides have crawl spaces, not basements.

View Our Manufactured Home Models

We offer display walkthroughs for customers to view our single wides in person. Walk-in visits are allowed, but we recommend scheduling an appointment so someone from our team can meet with you and help you find what you’re looking for.

COVID-19 Safety Measures

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have put some new safety measures in place to protect both our team members as well as our customers. Please keep the following in mind when you visit us:

  • We ask all employees and guests to wear a mask and follow social distancing guidelines.
  • We have limited the number of people in our office at a time to allow for social distancing.
  • Please enter our model homes one family at a time, and keep the door open to ensure proper ventilation.

In addition to these safety measures, we have also installed plastic shields on our salespeople’s desks and enhanced our cleaning measures in our office and in the prefab homes.

Luxury Manufactured Homes

Luxury single wide homes come with upgraded features such as:

  • Better appliances
  • Finished drywall
  • Upgraded trim package
  • Solid wood cabinets with raised panels
  • Bathroom upgrades (e.g., a better shower or nicer cabinets)


Used Single Wides for Sale

Although we offer pre-owned and used manufactured homes, we don’t always have them in stock. Pre-owned or used single wide homes can be transported to a private property or park, just like new ones. Call us today to check if we have any used single wides available. We also take both single wides and double wides for trade-ins.

Which Manufactured Home Should I Buy?

With so many great options for manufactured homes, it can be hard to make a final decision. Should you buy new or used? Single wide or double wide? Should you buy a manufactured home, or should you look into modular homes?

At the end of the day, you’ll need to figure out what’s most important for you and your family. Single wide homes are simpler and faster to construct than double wides because they are a single unit instead of two separate sections that must be put together. This makes them a great option for fast or temporary housing. For example, many customers choose to live in a single wide home while building a larger, more permanent house.

Whatever you choose, Preferred Homes is here to help. We offer pre-owned, used, new, and luxury models of both single wides and double wides.

"As we have been searching for a home for many months, it has been difficult fighting discouragement. I have been telling my family that the right house and the right people would happen in Gods time. We are truly blessed. Our prayers were answered! Thank you for everything, Wendy. We are very, very, very happy!"

Dan, Michael, and Chris

My wife and I purchased a home from Preferred to place on land. The experience was fantastic and the home is beautiful. Everyone from the Sales person to the other office girls, Mary & Sherri, through the Set-up, Service, Drywall crews and the owner went above and beyond in every area! I would HIGHLY recommend Preferred to everyone I know and if we ever planned to move again we would order from Preferred and do it over again.


Matt and the staff at Preferred Mobile Homes do an excellent job getting back to me when I contact them about our mutual clients. Their service is always top notch and professional. I would recommend Preferred Mobile Homes to everyone I know. Great job team!


We are currently in the process of having our new home finished with Preferred Homes. It has been delivered and the outside has been put together and finished. We are still in the process of having the inside done. So far we are really happy with Preferred and all the crews that they have had do work for us. We would recommend purchasing from them. The sales staff was very helpful in dealing with the factory and us. We did a custom floor plan and they were very accommodating with the living arrangement we were looking for.


Totally amazing staff!!!! Homes were staged JUST LIKE HOME!!! Never seen anything other mobile home store like it!!!! Amazing place. Would definitely recommend. Thank you for your knowledgeable help!!!!!


We absolutely love our home. We had a thunderstorm a couple of weeks ago and our dog is big time afraid and shakes, well we couldn't even hear the thunder in our house!!!!! I could not believe it. Built very solid.


I have personally know the founder, Kim Arnold, since the late 70's. You are not going to find a more honest person to deal with or to buy a home from. My family has been in the manufactured home business since 1961. We have always referred people to Preferred if and when they need something we can't help them with. They have hauled dozens of homes for us over the last 40 years. Always with a handshake and a smile. If your looking for a new manufactured home, go see the fine people at Preferred. Tell them Bill sent you.


We currently are going thru the process with them and it has been awesome. Really good customer service...right before we closed on the house I ended up going into labor and had a baby. They sent flowers and a teddy bear to the house we are currently living in. Extremely thoughtful!!!! Has gone above and beyond would extremely recommend them. Even some bumps in the road we have hit they always make it right...awesome people!


We just toured homes and signed papers for purchase of one yesterday! Tim was so helpful, and didn’t try to push us to purchase. He was very knowledgeable about the homes we viewed, and I’m looking forward to working with the rest of their staff in completing our journey in purchasing our new home!


The staff at Preferred were all so amazing! Thanks for getting us into our dream home!
