Today's factory built homes are a testament to today's technology, coupled with superior materials and site built quality at tremendous savings to the consumer. That being said, let\'s take a look at the differences between Manufactured & Modular Homes.
Manufactured Homes: Formerly referred to as Trailers or Mobile Homes, are built on a non removable steel chassis in the factory. These homes are then transported to the clients property whether it is owned or leased, (For example, a Manufactured Home Community, on Axles & Tires.) Manufactured Homes are not always placed upon a permanent foundation (Dependent on Local Zoning Laws). These homes are built to a Federal Building Code, Referred to as a H.U.D. code. This includes single section homes as well.
Modular Homes: This type of home is also constructed in a factory. The big difference is namely that they homes are built to conform to all State & Local Building Codes at the final destinations. Modular Homes are then transported in the same manner as a Manufactured Home. A Concrete Foundation is necessary in the set up of these homes along with a stem wall along the perimeter. There are Two Types of Modular Homes, Frame-On or Frame-Off. The Frame-On Modular Home will have a non-removable steel chassis that will stay on the home permanently, and are driven to the concrete foundation, and the stem wall is built up to an attached to the perimeter of the home. The Frame-Off Modular Home has a removable steel chassis and is placed on the foundation with a roller system or a crane. Mortgage Companies recognize Modular Homes as comparable to a site built home and in some cases appraise the same. Installed properly and Inspected & Passed By Local Building Inspectors, Appreciation in Value may accrue (Dependent on the many factors including but not limited to Area, Job Growth, Job Availability, Housing Market, Location from Schools etc.)
Cost per Square Foot is the biggest reason for the soaring popularity of Factory Homes. In most cases manufactured homes are starting at $35 to $45/sq. Foot after Set and Delivery. Modular Home square footage values begin between $50-$60. Not to mention the time frame for building, which is also one of the biggest advantages to purchasing a Factory Built Home, the average construction time being Three to Six Weeks, dependent upon demand and weather conditions.
Cost-Effective: Depending on the region of the country, construction cost per square foot for a new manufactured home averages from 10 to 35 percent less than a comparable site-built home. Independent appraisal studies confirm that manufactured homes can appreciate in value the same as other forms of housing.
Built for Quality: All aspects of the construction process are controlled. The weather does not interfere with construction and cause delays. All technicians, craftsmen and assemblers work as a team and are professionally supervised. Inventory is better controlled and materials are protected from theft and weather-related damage. All construction materials, as well as interior finishes and appliances, are purchased in volume for additional savings. Cost of interim construction financing is significantly reduced or eliminated. All aspects of construction are continually inspected.
Amenities: Floor plans are available that range from basic to elaborate, with vaulted or tray ceilings, fully-equipped kitchens, walk-in closets, and bathrooms with recessed tubs and whirlpools. A variety of exterior siding is available, including metallic, vinyl, wood, or hardboard. In some cases, homebuyer can also opt for stucco exteriors. Homes have pitched roofs with shingles and gabled ends. Design features such as bay windows are available. Awnings, patio covers, decks, site-built garages and permanent foundations are available as upgrades. The home can be customized to meet the needs of the consumer.
Safety: The building materials in today's manufactured home are the same as those used in site-built homes. The homes are engineered for wind safety and energy efficiency based on the geographic region where they are sold. Manufactured homes may be one of the safest housing choices available today because of federal laws requiring smoke detectors, escape windows, and limited combustible materials around furnaces, water heaters and kitchen ranges. Properly installed homes can withstand 120-130 mph 3-second gust winds in areas prone to hurricanes.
