Thinking about moving to the great state of Alaska? Choosing a custom manufactured home, modular home or mobile home can be the right choice for any individual looking for affordable housing options. The state of Alaska, nicknamed “The Last Frontier,” borders the Canadian administrative divisions of British Columbia, and Yukon. Alaska is the United States’ largest state, yet only has a population of approximately 740,000. One of the reasons for low population is because the cost of living can be high—a vast majority of the food and goods must be imported. This makes the ability to find affordable housing essential for any individual looking to live in Alaska. The average price of a home in Alaska is $270,000. Whereas, a pre-built modular home or manufactured home can run anywhere from $90 to $180 per square foot, bringing the approximate cost of a custom-built manufactured home to $162,000. It is no doubt that the state of Alaska contains great beauty—any individual who has visited will agree.
