Why Choose A Manufactured Home vs a Site Built Home?
Below are some very good reasons to choose a manufactured home over a traditional home! We've done the research (so you don't have too!) and we put it all in one place!
It is well documented that today’s modern manufactured homes offer homebuyers an abundance of savings when compared to a site built home. The savings are significant. The building cost of a new manufactured home will be up to 50% less than a comparable sized traditional site-built home utilizing the same building materials, equal or superior in health and safety features, energy efficiency, design, and amenities.
The Building Process
“Manufactured Home” is simply a designation referring to any home built in a factory after 1976 when the Department of Housing and Urban Development set forth their code for home construction. In a factory, the climate is controlled and the weather is, well, always perfect! Factory built homes also offer employees who are trained according to the same guidelines and managed by the same employer. Theft, damage and vandalism are non-existent. Because manufactured home factories regularly produce their homes, manufacturers are able to purchase building materials on a large scale at prices at a significant discount compared to building a stick-built home. These efficiencies and savings on materials translate directly into affordability for the home buyer.
Manufactured homes are the only form of single family housing built to a stringent national building code. The HUD Code is a series of performance standards that address every aspect of a manufactured home: heating, plumbing air conditioning, thermal and electrical systems, structural design, construction, fire safety, energy efficiency and even the transportation from factory to on-site installation. The goal is to ensure the highest degree of safety and construction in your home. When a manufactured home leaves the factory, it does so with a “Red Seal” attached indicating the home has passed what is arguably the most rigorous inspection process in the housing industry.
Manufactured homes today can be shipped with top-of-the-line brand name appliances. Add-ons like fireplaces, decks and porches are now achievable. Advances in the building process have allowed manufacturers to produce homes in a wide array of architectural styles. While homebuyers can choose from many pre-existing floor plans, they can also customize the layout of their new home to fit their budget, taste and lifestyle. Manufactured Homes are customizable in ways stick-built homes are simply not capable of.
