The Advantages of an Extra Bedroom When Ordering Your New Manufactured Home!

Typically, a manufactured home buyer’s first priority when shopping for a manufactured home will to be locate a desirable floor plan that has the required bedrooms to accommodate the number of family members or occupants of the home. Many consider only reviewing floor plans that have these minimum bedroom prerequisites, with the belief that having an extra bedroom(s) will dramatically increase the price of the home. However, that is not necessarily the case.

When utilizing the floor plan search feature of this website, you’ll find that many manufacturer’s models will display floor plans of the same size home with two, three, four, and sometimes five bedroom plan options.The price difference between a three bedroom and a four bedroom, for instance, is less than you might think when the basic plan and square footage is the same. You might ask, why would I need an extra bedroom?

One of the most important criteria affecting the resale value of any home is the number of bedrooms. A manufactured homes value is positively affected by the quantity of bedrooms, especially considering the return on investment as compared to the minimum outlay at the time of ordering a new manufactured home.
