Five Advantages of Owning a Manufactured Home
Have you found yourself pondering alternative home options amidst the chaos of the market these days?
Do you dream about having complete freedom?
Don’t shy away from an industry that you’ve only heard stereotypes about.
The manufactured housing industry has fought tooth and nail to deliver a product as high quality as the one you get today.
Those stuck in the 1970s are blurring the vision of individuals looking to have control of their finances and freedom over their lives.
Kick the stereotype to the curb and check out five of the high points of going manufactured for your dream home!
Better cost per square foot
In most cases, manufactured homes are a fraction of the cost in comparison to site-built homes.
When you’re spending less on the overall square footage, you’re leaving more room in your budget for things like finishes, furnishing, and landscaping, all while staying under budget.
During the traditional building process of a site-built home, many buyers find themselves putting their dreams on hold once they realize that base square footage takes up most of their budget.
At this point, they’re forced to either increase their budget or cut down on square footage.
This leaves them feeling discouraged and defeated at the end of the day.
The manufactured home building process has streamlined the process to keep square footage as low as possible, which means you get a better bang for your buck.
Mandated to meet strict codes
Above anything, it’s imperative to the industry’s manufacturers that you and your family have a safe place to call home.
Manufactured home engineers have worked tirelessly to continue evolving the product to withstand life’s hard times.
Each home is built to the federally mandated Department of Housing and Urban Development (or HUD) codes, ensuring each home is built to last.
Because of these strict codes, each home has been built with these areas in mind to best suit its future buyer and their families:
- Fire Safety
- Energy Efficiency
Manufactured homes are SO versatile
Many fear that going manufactured means they will miss out on the opportunity to customize their new home.
But we’re here to tell you, fear not!
One of the greatest advantages of going Manufactured is the fact that you get to make decisions about what you’d like to see in your home!
You have the freedom to design your home in ways that suit your family and your needs.
All without the added cost of builders, interior designers, and other third-party vendors.
Long Term Savings
As we said at the beginning, going manufactured is cheaper than going site-built.
Lower price per square foot, fewer surprise fees, AND you get to move into your new build sooner than with site-built.
But what makes these homes even more appealing is their efficiency standards.
The brightest point to this is that you’ll be lowering your cost of living and giving yourself the freedom to live the life YOU want to live.
No one wants to create waste and the manufacturers are no exception to that.
These professionals are able to craft these homes with as little waste as possible and what’s left over gets used on another project.
Not to mention the supplies used are thought to be used in ways that benefit the homeowner and the environment.
That’s what we call a win/win!
