Build with Purpose guided the Minquadale Village Homeowners Association in purchasing their manufactured home community, Minquadale Village, for $2.1 million, thus securing the homes for the 84 families living there. It was the first purchase of its kind in Delaware under a law passed in 2008 which gives manufactured homeowners associations the right of first offer when the community’s owner decides to sell the property.
