MARKET ACCEPTANCE

Modular homes rarely experience the zoning restrictions and discriminatory ordinances sometimes applicable to manufactured and mobile homes. There are some cities, counties, home buyers, and lending institutions, which resist considering modular homes as equivalent in value to site-built homes. While the homes themselves may be of equivalent quality, entrenched zoning regulations and psychological marketplace factors may create hurdles for buyers or builders of modular homes, and should be considered as part of the decision-making process when exploring this type of home as a living and/or investment option.
