Modular homes are built in large sections in a factory, then delivered and assembled at the construction site.

Because of the efficiencies of constructing most of the home in a factory setting, modular homes can be a great option for buyers.

Follow these tips to help you find a modular home that will fit your needs.

The Modular Home Dealer

Your first stop is finding a qualified, licensed dealer who works with modular home manufacturers.

The best dealers are licensed general contractor who can handle all aspects of constructing your modular home. They will make certain that the modular home floor plan meets your specifications and budget.

Dealers oversee all aspects of putting your home together, which includes securing correct permits, foundation, plumbing, HVAC, electrical and carpentry work, all of which will occur onsite.

Additionally, the best dealers will assist you with your lender and title company to ensure that everything goes smoothly for you.

The Modular Home Manufacturer

Once you pick a dealer, you can begin to look at styles of modular homes.

Each manufacturer has different options. There are sizes, floor plans and architectural designs to consider. Maybe you would prefer a one-story ranch, two-story home, Cape Cod or vacation style home. You can customize the look to meet your lifestyle and budget.
