Buying a New Home is an Exciting Life Event

When buying a home it’s important to choose carefully and make your purchase with a name you trust. With Jacobsen Homes, you can rest assured that we will build you the manufactured home of your dreams, at an affordable price.

From our founding in 1959, we have striven to use only the finest products and materials for our expertly designed and crafted homes. Our manufactured homes have always combined cutting-edge design with a uniquely human touch. Today, Jacobsen Homes is the oldest and largest builder of manufactured homes in the state of Florida.

A Legacy of Innovation

A talent for building and design runs in the Jacobsen family. Three generations of Jacobsens have brought quality and integrity to the Florida manufactured home market. Since our inception, we have been recognized as a leader in custom designed and built manufactured homes. Here’s how we do it.

Factory Built with a Personal Touch

Jacobsen’s homes are built in a factory, but they have never been built on a traditional production line like so many others. Instead, we focus on customization and letting homebuyers have a say in what their dream home will look like.

Industry-Leading Technology

Since 1987, we have led the manufactured housing industry with our AutoCAD automated floor plan design. Our in-house engineer team computer designs each of our homes. Our factories build each housing component with the utmost quality and attention to detail.

Green Building Practices

We’re proud to be a green builder, doing our part to reduce waste and conserve energy with our building process. Our manufactured homes are environmentally friendly by nature, built with supplies bought in bulk and manufactured in climate-controlled warehouses. We have minimal environmental impact because we store our materials inside and recycle whatever we can to reduce waste.

Quality is a Family Tradition

We’ve built this legacy because we invest in our people. At Jacobsen Homes, we believe that a company is only as good as the people who work for it. We’re proud to say more than 30% of our sales staff have been on our team for more than 10 years, and some have been with us more than 30 years. We have always been a family business and do our part to make sure we extend the same warmth to our customers.


Jacobsen Homes Stand The Test of Time

Jacobsen’s homes are built to delight customers for years to come. Don’t just take it from us, ask any of our long-time customers. Our homes are built to last with the best materials available.

“Our Jacobsen was built in 1978. It’s hard to convince people that haven’t seen it that the home is that old, that it was just built well.”

“The floor, on close examination, reveals that it’s been here a long time, but the original high gloss on it makes people think that it’s a new floor!”
