Cost Advantages of Modular Homes

Modular homes are a great alternative to site built houses, with some extra advantages. While some people say modular homes aren’t “real” properties, that’s not the case at all. Modular homes are as a permanent structure as site built homes and have some notable benefits site built house do not enjoy. So, let’s take a look at some of the advantages of modular homes.

Cost Advantages of Modular Homes

Modular homes or prefabricated houses, are an option for people who want to build a custom property but do not want to incur the high cost. In fact, a prefab home is a savvy way to actually save money while getting everything you want out of a custom built property. Here are some of the cost advantages of modular homes:

  • Cost control. One of the leading complaints about site built homes is going over budget. While it sometimes involves the eventual homeowner changing their minds and making changes, it’s usually due to delays, the cost of materials, and more. But with a modular home, the budget is set when the home is designed.
  • Faster build time. Speaking of delays, which can cost the homeowner more with extra expenses, modular homes are built faster, about half the time it takes to construct a site built property.
  • Energy efficiency. Another long term cost benefit of prefab homes is these are built for maximum energy efficiency from the get go. 
All of this, not to mention that you can get a completely customized home for much less than a site built home with a modular house.
