Considering buying a new manufactured home, modular home, or prefabricated home in the state of Nevada? Known as the Silver State, Nevada is located in the southwestern part of the United States, borders California, New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, Idaho, and Oregon, and has mostly a hot, dry climate. Nevada modular homes are engineered specifically for the unique characteristics of the environment, with a focus on energy efficiency and minimal long-term maintenance. Do you like the desert? Move to Nevada. Nevada also hosts a large number of events, shows, restaurants, and museums. Nevada has a current population of just under 3 million, and the average sales price of a home in the Silver State is $330,500. The average price of a modular home in Nevada is $60 to $80 per square foot. Therefore, the price of a 1,800 square foot modular home would be $126,000, which makes the purchase of a manufactured home a fiscally responsible choice for Nevada’s would-be home buyers. Although, these prices may vary in metropolitan areas such as Reno and Las Vegas, where the cost of land and site improvements are typically higher.
What Makes a Manufactured Home or Modular Home Different?
Manufactured homes are built to specific standards, uniquely. These houses are factory-built, in pieces, and assembled on-site. Unlike traditional site-built homes, prefabricated homes have the advantage of several avenues of cost-savings, which are all passed down to the buyer. In a state like Nevada, the benefits of factory-built housing are abundant. One of the most significant cost-saving facets of manufactured housing is energy-efficiency, which is especially crucial in a state like Nevada, which has a varying climate. With modular homes, the pieces of the home, or "modules," are constructed individually, and assembled on-site. This process takes much less time to complete and allows for added customization of floorplan options for the homebuyer.
