Our Retail Sales Center

Currently, there are HUD/Manufactured Homes, Modular Homes (including the sales office) and Single Section Homes displayed with decorated & furnished living rooms, kitchens, dining areas, master bedrooms and bathrooms. Electricity is run to several of the sectional homes as well. Stone skirting and landscaping are displayed on a few homes. In addition, a “spec home” is open for tour in a new housing development in Mt. Pleasant.

Our new sales center is designed to have a residential and “village like” appearance. It has been organized in such a way that the customer comes through the front office door to be greeted and then exits through the sliding glass doors, to the back, where there is sidewalk leading them to each sectional home. The office is handicap accessible.

Davis Homes currently serves a 100 mile radius, but has been known to go farther.

History of Davis Homes

Davis Homes is a retailer that has been in business since 1972. It is a family owned business in its second generation of ownership. Don & Rita Davis started the business with one single wide on a rented piece of property in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa. This home was both office and model home. Don would hire the “good old boy” and/or the preacher next door to help him set up a home after a sale.

In 1978, Don moved Davis Homes to the west side of Mt. Pleasant where he operated the business for 30 years. Having four sons was an advantage on many summer days when home set up was the busiest. Don & Rita’s oldest son Sid went to college, graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, and then came back to help Don for a summer in 1994 and never left.

After many discussions and much prayer, on July 1, 2008 Sid and Laura Davis purchased Davis Homes from Don & Rita and moved the business across town where the new highway bypass was built. The property that was purchased was an old farmstead. All of the buildings were torn down except for the silo which has been preserved for nostalgia and as a landmark for marketing purposes.

Management Philosophy

Considering that this business has been a family business, Davis Homes’ management philosophy is focused and intentionally simple. Follow the Golden Rule; treat others like you want to be treated, honesty & integrity is the best policy.

Currently, Sid Davis is the Owner, spending most days with the customers on their properties and helping our awesome set up crew. Laura Davis is the Office and Finance Manager. We also maintain full-time contract employees who work for Davis Homes setting and servicing our homes.
