Real Estate Agents

The purchase or sale of a floating home is not the kind of thing that you should leave in the hands of a friend or cousin who markets land homes.  Depend on the expertise of someone who really understands the Floating Home Market and can lead you through the process.

Flotation and Float Inspection

There are a lot of companies that understand how to adjust a foundation of a land home…but where do you go for repair and balance the foundation of a floating home or underwater work?  Use an expert that understands a floating home!
