Manufactured housing is less
expensive. There is a broad range when it comes to the price of manufactured
housing since there are many variables involved in the price of individual
manufactured homes. Depending on features such as the floor plan and details
included in the home create a range of from under $20,000 for a single-section
home with basic features to prices in excess of $100,000 for a deluxe multisection home.

often better quality control, which results major benefits to building a home in
a factory. For instance, all aspects of the construction process are under
controlled conditions and weather doesn’t interfere with construction and cause
delays. All technicians, craftsmen and assemblers are on the same team and are
professionally supervised. Inventory is better controlled and materials are
protected from theft and weather-related damage.
In addition, all construction
materials, as well as interior features and appliances are purchased in volume
for additional savings and the cost of interim construction financing is
significantly reduced or eliminated. And finally, all aspects of construction
are continually inspected by not one, but several, inspectors. Manufactured
homes offer fantastic amenities.

"standard" features that you would find in a site-built home. Many floor plans
are available that range from the basic models to more elaborate designs with
living and dining rooms with vaulted ceilings, fully-equipped modern kitchens,
comfortable bedrooms with walk-in closets, and bathrooms with recessed bathtubs
and whirlpools. You may also select from a variety of exterior designs,
including metallic, vinyl, wood, or hardboard.
Design features such as a bay
windows, gable fronts, or a pitched roof with shingles can also be selected.
Awnings, enclosures around the crawl space, patio covers, decks, and steps are
also available at additional costs. And with many manufacturers now using the
latest in computer-assisted design, you have the flexibility of selecting
variations to the floor plans and decors, including the color and thickness of
the carpeting. These options can include everything from the type of exterior
siding materials to energy-efficiency features to kitchen appliance upgrades.
