For example, all within 30 minutes of Bishop:
12124 S Cork Rd, Morrice, MI 48857 - realtor.com®
5855 E M 71, Corunna, MI 48817 - realtor.com®
6434 E Mount Morris Rd, Genesee, MI 48458 - realtor.com® **Before anyone chimes in and says it is in Mt. Morris- the mailing address is Mt. Morris, yes. But it is in Genesee Township. (The realtor 'cheated' and put in Genesee but when you open the link it is actually Mt. Morris mailing) Honestly, another half mile down the road and it would have a Davison mailing address. It isn't anywhere close to Mt. Morris.
5067 W Frances Rd, Clio, MI 48420 - realtor.com® Thetford Township consistently ranks as one of the safest, most crime-free ZIP codes in the state. Real estate is a bargain, too.
Yes specifically looking for DTW because I would be working inside the airport.

You may be confusing manufactured homes with mobile homes. A manufactured home is the same as any other house. You buy a lot, put in a slab and utilities (or a basement); they build the house in sections in a factory; ship the sections to your property and assemble them on the foundation; hook in utilities and BAM - instant house.

Actually, I think you're confusing manufactured homes (single/double wides) with modular (pre-fab) homes. Manufactured homes are mobile homes and depreciate like a car does.

You care correct (mostly). Some Modular home manufacturers use manufactured homes interchangeably (also pre-fab). That is the only place I have heard or seen the term used. However apparently it is more commonly used for trailer homes (mobile homes) made after 1976. They sure do depreciate. I see older trailer parks offering them for $100 or even free. My brother bought one for $100. Fixed it up a lot but then his job changed and it was impractical for him to live there. Eventually he stopped paying the lot rent and just gave the now restored trailer home back to the park
