Manufactured Homes: High Quality at a Low Price
You’ve probably heard the adage “You can’t have your cake and eat it too” many times in your life. And in many situations, it’s true: you just don’t get to have it all. If you want to have something done fast, it might not be done very well or very inexpensively. Or if you need to have something at a low cost, it might not be the best quality. It always seems like there’s some sort of trade-off, right?
When you’re looking for a new home, it might feel like you’re constantly making trade-offs. You might trade a great location for a lower price elsewhere. A home that’s the size you need might only be affordable because it needs a ton of repair work. Believe it or not, with manufactured homes, you can have it all: affordability, great location, and large sizes!
Compared to site-built homes, manufactured homes cost between 10% and 35% less to build if you take the price of land out of the picture. Manufactured homes may be less expensive, but they’re certainly not low quality. When you’re dealing with regular site-built homes, you know what really drives up the cost of the building process? Weather delays, materials that get damaged or stolen by being left outside, and the fact that most traditional homebuilders can’t buy materials at bulk rates. But the nature of how manufactured homes are built make each of those problems a total non-issue.
Unlike most other types of homes, manufactured homes are built in factories that are staffed by highly-trained, supervised professionals. Every single aspect of the building process is extremely controlled and the home is inspected at every step in the process. Site-built homes simply don’t have that level of quality control! Factory workers are also able to construct homes using the most advanced tools available, ensuring manufactured homes are built with the most precise, secure construction possible.
In fact, manufactured homes need to be built with extremely secure construction in mind. Regular houses don’t have to be transported to their site, but since manufactured homes do, they need to be able to withstand the process.
Factories that build manufactured homes don’t cut corners the home’s construction and they don’t cut corners on the quality of the building materials they use, either. The fact that manufactured homes are built indoors means that you won’t have to worry that the quality of the lumber or elements made of metal were compromised by being exposed to moisture. You won’t have to pay as much for those building materials, either, since factories have the luxury of being able to purchase in bulk.
All of these factors make it possible for you to own a home that’s high quality, yet affordable. Best of all, manufactured homes are available in a wide range of sizes, floor plans, and can have a lot of excellent features like fireplaces, garages, outdoor sheds, decks, pantries, and walk-in closets. So whether you’re looking for a small 2-bedroom home or a more spacious 4-bedroom home, there’s a manufactured home for you!
