Considering buying a new manufactured home, modular home, or prefabricated home in the state of Maine? Known as The Pine Tree State, Maine is located in the northeastern part of the United States, borders New Hampshire, and has a mostly cold and humid climate. Maine manufactured homes are engineered specifically for the unique characteristics of the environment, with a focus on energy efficiency and minimal long-term maintenance. Rocky coastlines and abundant parks make for the Maine experience. With a population of just over 1.3 million, the average sales price of a home in Maine is $250,000. The average starting price range for constructing a new manufactured or modular home is $55 to $75 per square foot. So, the average starting cost of a 1,800 square foot prefabricated home would be $117,000 including land and necessary site improvements making manufactured housing a fiscally responsible choice for Maine’s’ would-be home buyers. These prices may vary in metropolitan areas such as Portland and Lewiston where land and necessary site improvements are typically higher.
Modern modular and manufactured homes are constructed in climate-controlled building facilities, protecting the construction process and workforce from the elements. This means there’s no worry that Alabama rains or winds will delay construction as they would with a site-built home. Manufacturers employ modern building techniques and the latest construction technologies to build their homes with precision and efficiency. Modular and manufactured homes are built from the inside out—one of the last stages of the construction process is the exterior finish of the home. This enables home builders to better insulate their homes, reducing air leakage and infiltration and resulting in greatly improved energy efficiency.
