O.k. you know how homes appreciate in value, well do manufactured home appreciate or depreciate?
Manufactured home is a nice term for mobile home. Presumably, the only difference is that "manufactured" is sitting on a piece of owned real estate, not in a rented trailer park lot. But no manufactured home will appreciate like a normal home. The land might gain in value, but the home, not so much. If you're meaning a modular home, where the bulk of the framework is built in a factory and assembled onsite, but it looks exactly like a normal home, those should gain roughly on pace with a normal "stick built" home.

Yes, mobile homes depreciate no matter what. Houses will appreciate or lose value depending on the market. Hear this: Manufactured homes (built after 1976 and built to the HUD code) generally appreciate (or depreciate) at similar rates as stick built homes. Of course their value is lower than a similar sq.ft. stick built home, but they increase in value since there is a market segment of buyers who are priced out of the market--meaning they cant afford a stick built home. Some double wides in my area sell for close to $200k. This is because many buyers cant afford an entry level $275k stick built home and settle on a manufactured home. I can only speak for my region (Virginia), but from talks with other real estate professionals that is pretty typical across the country.

Manu Homes depreciate. Do not assume regular houses will appreciate either.
