Owning a home is a important part of any phase in life. It can often be seen as a stepping stone to establishing your life and laying down roots. It is also often expensive, with costs only increasing with time. While the demand for homes is at an all-time-high, the option to buy one isn’t always an option.
However, there’s a new trend that has been the popular choice within the last few years: manufactured homes. The industry offers a solution to those who want to be a home-owner, but can’t quite afford it.
Here are 5 reasons why manufactured homes are becoming the go-to choice for home-buyers:
This one is obvious. Buying a manufactured home is significantly cheaper than buying a traditional house due to it being constructed in a factory, where manufacturers can prevent costly mistakes, avoid the weather and control all parts of the building process. This all contributes to why a manufactured home is much more affordable.
Like a traditional home, manufactured homes appreciate in value as well. Building equity is a key part of owning a home and to invest in an affordable, manufactured home that appreciates in value, is smart.
Manufactured homes go through one of the most meticulous inspection processes in housing. They have to be built to the HUD code, which is the standard by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. In contrast, modular and site-built homes follow a different code called the IRC.
The HUD code addresses every corner and crevice of a manufactured home, such as heating, plumbing, air conditioning, thermal and electrical systems, design, construction, fire safety, energy efficiency, etc. There are no corners cut when it comes to getting the seal of approval.
Being consciously conservative when it comes to how you treat the earth and live has been an important factor in housing. On top of it, being environmentally aware can also help you save a bit of money when it comes to resources. Manufactured homes are built in a way that doesn’t create as much waste, compared to your run-of-the-mill home. They also can be built with eco-friendly features, such as programmable thermostats, cool roofs, upgraded insulation, etc.
Manufactured homes are built to impress. There are many different floor plans to choose from, that start out with minimalistic to luxurious and intricate. Many manufacturers also provide customization options to fit the home to the buyer. For a lower cost, you can make your dream home into a reality.
