Today, new advances and expectations in modular home construction have made modular homes the standard by which some traditional site-built structures are measured.
Modular home builders contend that price, quality, timely construction delivery, and convenient financing make manufactured homes an attractive alternative in the housing market.
Prefabricated or modular homes are built to the same standard as site-built house. Generally less-expensive than traditionally built homes, modular floor plans vary, or customers can supply their own architectural design for a custom-built structure.
Once a customer selects a model or has a home designed, the timeline from factory manufacturing to delivery and completion can range from 30 to 90 days, depending on specifics with each situation. His company also handles securing permits and works with local utilities for hook-ups.
As with standard real estate purchases, customers can finance with their own lenders, or they can apply with a lender that the modular home builder uses.
Manufactured homes are factory built in pieces, shipped to a building site, craned and bolted in place.
Utility bills and maintenance of modular homes are significantly less than comparable site-built homes.
According to Manufactured Home Manufacturing, the industry is expected to see steady gains through 2016.
Investor Warren Buffet has said prefabricated homes represent the way of the future. They can be built in a controlled environment with controlled costs. The process is streamlined and you can get them in any variety of square footage, or multiple stories.
Today’s modular homes have come a long way from the rectangular box buildings they once were. Many standard elements now include granite counters, top-of-the-line fixtures, brand-name air conditioning and appliances, porches, decks, garages and additional elements that make these homes comparable to traditional structures with higher price tags.
The construction, installation, features and technology involved make modular homes ready to meet consumer demand while offering more than expected. For more information on modular homes, contact Tidewater Custom Modular Homes.
