Greater Flexibility in the Manufactured Home Construction Process Allows for Customization to Meet a Buyer’s Lifestyle and Needs
The high cost and scarcity of housing has forced low and middle income families to forego or indefinitely delay the uniquely American dream of affordable quality homeownership. It doesn’t necessarily have to be that way.
That need for quality, affordable housing has never been greater. Today’s manufactured home can deliver that dream of owning your own home with outstanding quality and performance with custom features and amenities you require and want, at prices up to 50 percent less cost per square foot than a new conventional home built on site. How is that possible? Let me explain..
The affordability of manufactured housing is due to the efficiencies of the factory-building process. Manufactured homes are constructed with the same building materials as site-built homes, and are built almost entirely off site in a factory. The controlled environment and assembly line techniques remove many of the problems encountered during traditional home construction, such as weather, theft, vandalism, damage to building products, materials, and unskilled labor. Factory employees are trained and managed more effectively and efficiently than the system of contracted labor employed by the site-built construction industry. There is more.
Much like other assembly line operations, manufactured homes benefit from the economies of scale resulting from purchasing large quantities of materials, products and appliances. Manufactured home builders can negotiate substantial savings on many components used in building a home, with these savings passed on directly to the homebuyer.
Today’s modern manufactured homes have experienced an evolution in the types and quality of homes available to buyers. Technological advances allow manufactured home builders to offer a variety of architectural styles and exterior finishes that will suit most any buyer’s dreams while allowing the home to blend seamlessly into most any neighborhood.
At the same time, greater flexibility in the construction process allows for customization of each home to meet a homebuyer’s lifestyle, wants and needs. Interior features include vaulted ceilings, working fireplaces,state of the art kitchens, luxurious baths, covered porches and more, giving the homebuyer all the features found in higher priced site-built homes. Enhanced energy efficiency in manufactured homes, achieved with upgraded levels of insulation and more efficient heating and cooling systems provide another source of savings for homeowners, especially in this era of rising energy costs. Smart buyers are turning to Energy Star-labeled manufactured homes for substantial savings in many aspects of owning and operating a home.
Technological advances, evolutionary design, and a focus on delivering quality homes that families can afford are the driving forces within today’s manufactured housing industry. That’s why more people are turning to manufactured housing to deliver homes that fit their needs and wants, at a price they can afford. Want to know more?
