Tidewater Custom Modular Homes - Smithfield, VA

It is a statistical fact, the concept of “The Greying of America”. And many of us in (or approaching) retirement are thinking about simplifying their lives. One of the most common simplification is downsizing homes. It makes sense for many of us to quit spending so much time managing property in exchange for more time managing our recreational lives. Increasingly, Americans are turning to modular home construction as their path to increasing their comfort and level of recreational living.

Let’s be clear. Downsizing must not be synonymous with compromising. Moving into a new home should always be a celebration and countless people just like you have chosen Tidewater Custom Modular Homes as their path to new home celebration. A new modular home is the perfect solution for those looking to downsize. You can remain in comfort with the space and amenities that you need and want, but you can still move into a smaller home.

With modular homes, the floor plans can be customized, so even if you are an empty nester and the kids old bedrooms were used as office or storage space, you can incorporate that functionality into your modular floor plan just on a smaller, more economical scale.

The reasons to downsize are many. To reclaim time as previously mentioned, to save money on maintenance, utilities and taxes, modular home construction provides that path. Modular construction is energy efficient construction. With energy star appliances, energy efficient windows, better insulation and efficient lighting you will pay less for the utilities in your home.

Most importantly, with a well built, well designed, brand new home, your new modular home will retain its resale value. When it comes time to sell, your home will retain its value. For more information on downsizing to a modular home, contact Tidewater Custom Modular Homes.
