People often think the lower cost of a Manufactured Home means lower quality. Manufactured homes are able to offer low prices due to how the homes are built. The Homes are built in the factories where an assembly line is used, they are built inside so there are no weather delays and due to the scale of production, a manufacturer buys large quantities of materials at a lower cost. These are just a few of the reasons Manufactured Homes can offer such affordable prices without sacrificing quality.
You are assured of first-rate construction because all manufactured homes built since 1976 must meet the strict performance standards of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The department's code requires the highest standards in every phase of construction and its requirements are comparable to the Standard\Building Code for site-built homes. Also, all manufacturers have their own quality assurance programs, and every home's design and construction is inspected and approved by an independent outside source.
Today’s manufactured homes are built with the same building materials as site-built homes, but in a controlled factory environment where the quality of construction is superior to what can be done outdoors. There are major benefits to having your home built in a factory:
Consumers benefit from the technological advancements and cost savings associated with the factory-built process.
There is less waste in the factory process than with site-built homes.
All aspects of the construction process are quality controlled and inspected per HUD’s rigorous standards
The weather doesn’t interfere with construction, cause costly delays and warp or damage building materials.
Technicians, craftsmen, and assemblers are on the same team and professionally supervised. Inventory is better controlled and materials are protected from theft and weather-related damage.
Construction materials, as well as interior features and appliances, are purchased in volume for additional savings.
A common misconception is that manufactured homes lose their value. But new research shows that manufactured homes increase in value at about the same rate as a site-built home. Read More
Manufactured homes actually can and do appreciate. They are made with the exact same materials that are used in site-built homes, so the materials don’t lose their value any faster. Property values are primarily based on the land itself and then on how well the home has been maintained.
