Financing and Building a Modular Home

When you build your own home, there is a significant difference in the financing as compared to buying an existing home.

When you buy an existing home you pay in full before you take possession of the home.

When you build a home, in this case a modular home, you are given money incrementally by the lender as the home is built. You make periodic payments on that amount as work is completed. This process protects you and your lender if something stops the builder from completing the home. It also protects the builder if something prevents you from being able to pay.

When you use a lender to build a modular home, you get a "construction loan”. Construction loans are short-term loans that range from a four- to twelve-month duration. You make a series of payments as the home is completed.

After your new modular home is built, the building inspector issues you a certificate of occupancy, the lender then pays off the construction loan and issues you a traditional mortgage. Tidewater Custom Modular Homes has relationships in the banking and mortgage industry. Contact us if you want more information on the building and financing process.

Modular Homes Appreciate at the same Rate as Traditional Homes

Often there are questions regarding the value, appraisal or retail value of a modular home. Modular homes appreciate in the same way as a traditionally built home, and sometimes there value is higher than a traditional home of comparable size and layout.

Modular Homes are built to more consistent, high standards than traditionally built homes, they are also built more sturdily, using screws and glue. Because of this, often times the wear and tear on a modular home is less despite being in the same geographic location. However, for simplicity, and because home value depends on how the home is maintained overtime, we say that modular homes retain value consistent with stick built homes.

Banks and mortgage companies consider modular homes to be the same as traditional homes. Most modular home factories are well known to lenders, and the construction time is faster therefore, lenders often like to initiate construction loans. But for the homeowner, the interest generated on the loan is less too because of the shorter construction period.

Contact Tidewater Custom Modular Homes if you are interested in learning more about the value or appreciation of modular homes to help you in your decision making process.

Modular Homes Can be Custom Designed

Modular homes often get confused with mobile homes. Mobile homes are smaller and are don't meet all of the same building codes as modular homes.  Modular homes mimick stick built construction in quality and design.

Modular homes can be custom designed.  You can choose from any style home: two story, cape, and ranch style homes. They can  also be custom designed to your needs, add a beautiful deck, or vaulted ceilings.

There are standard floor plans available which can be changed or added to depending on your needs.

Modular Homes are strong, affordable and elegant prefabricated homes.  Modular homes are easily available within everyone’s budget, and they can be customized by the manufacturer. In recent years, modular homes have become more and more popular over traditionally built homes. 

There are many reasons for the growing popularity of modular homes. The construction process is considerably shorter than stick built homes. This makes buying and building modular homes a great option for home builders and a home owner.

The modules are built indoors. Therefore, the construction process is never hindered by weather. However, this is also a greener way to build a home. The specs are exact and, with no weather issues, construction waste is less.
