How does a Modular Home Compare to a Stick-built or Manufactured Home?
Like a manufactured home, a modular home is built in a factory and shipped to the property. But unlike a manufactured home, only the individual rooms are constructed. After the parts are shipped, the house is then assembled on-site.
Because of this, every room is customizable. Whatever design a buyer has in mind, they can have the home built the way they covet. This includes:
- Architecture Style
- Utilities such as heating, ventilation, and air conditioning
Modular homes cost more than manufactured homes, but they appreciate in value, just as much as stick-built homes.
Modular homes can be built much faster than stick-built. It only takes a few weeks, rather than a few months. Manufactured homes can be delivered within a few days, but buyers miss out on designing their home the way they want.
Be aware that although modular homes many seem quicker to build and cheaper than a regular constructed home, the individual rooms have to be shipped to the property. Travelling all the way across the US is an expense some homeowners fail to take into consideration.
