High rent, low wages, and discriminatory zoning laws have all contributed to the currentin America. We want to end that.
We use state-of-the-art building techniques to create homes that are built in a factory and assembled on site. Otherwise known as "prefab housing", nothing goes to waste as we construct your home, saving you money.
That's nearly $35,000 less than the cost of your average traditionally built home*
With Energy Star certified floorplans, it's possible to heat and cool for much less
Stick built homes produce more waste than any other industry, not so with prefab!
No Weather Delays Assembling our homes offsite means we can keep working around the clock. No weather delays means a shorter build time and a product that is safe from the element.
Zero Waste It is estimated that 40% of all solid waste in the United States is from the traditional building process. On the assembly line, every piece of lumber is cut to fit and waste from the building process is nearly eliminated.
Built for Less The manufactured home industry is able to purchase materials by the train load. This massive scale allows manufacturers to drive down costs and increase efficiency.
Move in Sooner With increased efficiency is a shorter build time. Each home spends as little as 2 weeks being built in the factory in a tightly controlled manufacturing process. The quicker it's built, the sooner you move in.
No. It cannot appraise for less than a stick built home because it IS a stick built home.
Our prefab / modular homes are built to the exact same building code as a traditionally built home. It makes no difference to a home inspector whether a component is made in a factory or made on site. Their only concern is that the home meets the IRC building code.
When a home is appraised, it is compared to other homes of similar size & construction (comps). Because a modular home is built to the same code at the factory, it can appraise for the same amount or more.
Building a new home is done with a Construction Loan. This is a short term loan that the builder will use to pay for each step in the process (ordering the home, pouring a foundation, hooking up utilities). You can apply for a Construction Loan at most local banks.
Once the home is in place, it is appraised in order to apply for a longer term mortgage. This is used to pay off the original Construction Loan.
"Construction to Permanent" Loans combine this process into one step by automatically converting to a permanent loan when the house is finished. This prevents you from having to pay two sets of fees, for two loans.
Yes. Most local banks will require a downpayment around 20% of the cost of the project. You can also use your land as a downpayment.
Contact your local real estate agent to find a piece of land you can build on. You can also use one of the many online real estate websites to secure a lot (Zillow, Trulia, RedFin, Realtor.com). And if you've got a lot in mind, give us a call and we can check to make sure it's buildable.
We don't provide any financing ourselves, but we can provide you with a list of local banks that offer Construction Loans here.
Traditional homes take on average 1 year to complete. Modular homes by comparison can be built in as little as 3 months and as long as 6 months.
The reason it's so much faster is that the home & the foundation can be built at the same time. We ask our customers to allow for up to 6 months before they can move in.
