Home buyers can now use their phones to find your listings!

On February 25th, MHVillage launched an exciting new tool for manufactured home buyers: a mobile version of our website. Now there are two ways for buyers to find you on MHVillage – with their computer, or on their smart phone!

As you know, MHVillage has a lot of information. This new mobile site is a simplified version that works like an app. We’ve specifically optimized it to help buyers find manufactured homes, communities and sale centers. It is popular already – there are currently over 6,000 people a day using their phone to shop MHVillage for homes and communities.

Here’s a breakdown of what buyers are using to shop:

Smart Phone Usage on MHVillage

Smart Phone Operating Systems on MHVillage

Andriod – 65%
iOS – 33%
Windows Phone – 1%
BlackBerry – 0.5%
Samsung – 0.2%

Please note: our mobile site was built as a lead generation tool. Some MHVillage features are still only available on the full desktop version of the site. (You can’t list or edit your homes, for example.)

To use our new mobile site, just go to MHVillage.com on your smart phone. We will automatically ask you if you’d like to try it out. (You can switch back to the desktop version at any time.) If you have already tried our new mobile site, let us know what you think. We’d love to hear your feedback!
