The Advantages to Owning a Factory-Built Home
Today’s factory-built homes are built under strict standards and are inspected to assure full compliance to those same standards. A great majority of factory-built homes now sold are placed on permanent foundations and qualify for conventional, FHA and VA loans.
Depending on the region of the country, construction costs per square foot for a new factory-built home average from 10 to 25 percent less than a comparable new site-built home.
Independent appraisal studies confirm that factory-built homes can perform in value at the same rate as other housing forms in the same market.
Costs of interim construction financing may be significantly reduced or eliminated as completion time may be shorter with factory-built homes.
