Explore making your next house manufactured.
Unlike the on-site construction, manufactured homes have to be transported on the roads, which prevents the manufactured home sections to exceed 16 feet in width and 80 feet in length.
In an effort to make the homeownership available for $25,000.00 or less, manufacturers have substituted traditional materials for less expensive choices. An example is a sheet metal stamped to look like vertical cedar siding. Similarly, interior finishes often rest on a material’s ease of assemble and affordability rather than on aesthetics or long-term durability.
Manufactured construction cannot accommodate last minute changes because its components have been pre-made.
Many local zoning ordinances restrict where homes built to HUD code can be utilized. These restrictions cause and a stigma of lesser housing, which causes manufactured home to decrease in resale value rather quickly.
