Do you ever suffer from home-envy? Do you repeatedly drive by the house of your dreams and sigh because you’re sure you’ll never be able to afford one like it? Then you may not be familiar with modular homes. These are houses that are constructed indoors at a factory and then assembled on-site. They’re an affordable option for homeowners who appreciate luxury.
Modular, or pre-fabricated, homes are completely customizable. You can choose any architectural style you wish, from mid-century modern to American colonial. You also specify size, materials, and floorplan to create a unique house that serves all your family’s needs. You can also decide which features are the most and least important to you, and allocate more money to the design aspects you can’t live without.
An expertly designed and customized home may sound too good to be true. New houses are famously pricey to build. Yet the factory-like process that makes modular homes unique is also what makes them less expensive to construct than houses that are built on-site. Because these houses are built inside, costly weather delays are entirely eliminated. Building inspectors visit the factory during each construction phase, lowering your chance of a time-consuming setback caused by the late discovery of a flaw.
Also adding to their affordability, modular homes are often energy-efficient. Many of them are outfitted with solar panels, high-tech insulation, and low-flow water systems. These innovative technologies lower your monthly bills while reducing stress on the environment.
You may also have access to extra financing options. You can still receive financing through a bank or a mortgage lender, but many pre-fabricated home manufacturers offer financing to their customers, as well.
If you’ve always wanted a beautiful, custom-designed, visually enchanting home but never thought your budget would allow for one, look into modular homes. You just may end up living in your dream without breaking your bank.
