When is the best time to buy a home from Silverpoint Homes? Now.

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, March 10, 2015
When is the best time to buy a home from Silverpoint Homes? Now.

Sounds like a sales pitch, but “now” is always the best time to buy from Silverpoint Homes. Here’s why…

Interest Rates
Interest have hovered around their historical lows for the past few years. As the economy recovers, interest rates are expected to go up by 1% or more. A 1% change in interest rate means a huge difference in buying power. On a $200,000 loan, this calculates to a $125.66 per month increase, or $1,505.52 per year, or $45,165.60 over the life of a 30 year loan. Trying to time the market to hit a low point in interest rates is impossible. A few lenders offer a rate lock which is good insurance that you will receive the lowest rate. Even just a 0.25% change means an increase of more than $10,000 over the life of the loan. This is more than any price increase we have ever implemented.

Prices Always Increase
The cost of a new custom construction home always goes up. A custom built modular home is a huge compilation of hundreds of components like lumber, drywall, siding, shingles, etc. These individual commodities move up and down regularly, but the overall long term trend is up. Once they reach a certain threshold, our manufacturers must implement a price increase. Most increases cannot be anticipated as they are often driven by natural disasters that disrupt the supply and demand. These price increases are not a few hundred dollars. The typical increase in retail price of a home is 2 - 5%. In our 18 years of operation, we have never seen a manufacturer price decrease. We have seen years with no changes and some years with multiple price increases.

Prices Can Change Overnight
The price increases that are implemented are typically a two week lead time notice. It is not possible to obtain a loan and actually make a purchase in that timeframe.

Silverpoint Homes Builds Year Round
A tremendous advantage to modular homes is that they are built inside a climate controlled environment and are mostly complete when set on the foundation. This means that we can build year round. Silverpoint Homes only needs a few good weather days to complete the foundation and to crane set on the foundation. There is no need for a romantic vision to build a home in the summer. In fact, summer can be more challenging for good weather due to thunderstorms. Let us worry about the weather.

Silverpoint Homes offers the Best Price Every Day
Each home is custom designed and custom built to each customer’s unique requests. This is very different than having inventory on hand to sell. In this respect, it does not make sense to have discounts or huge incentives when each unique home has defined costs for materials and labor. We believe it also adds stress to the buying process. We give each home the best price every day.

Energy Efficiency
Many customers report to us that their new, larger home saves at least $25-$50 in utility bills. In a few cases, the winter utility bill is down over $150. Modular homes are much more energy efficient than a traditional site built home. Modular homes are built inside out – meaning drywall is installed before the exterior sheathing and siding. This allows for every penetration point of electrical and plumbing to be foam sealed for air leakage.

Put this all together, NOW is always the best time to buy a home from Silverpoint Homes.

Custom-Built Modular Homes: The Most Convenient Option For Building a New Home - Princeton, WV

Joseph Coupal - Monday, February 09, 2015

Modular homes are custom-built to provide quality living accommodations to interested homebuyers or homeowners. In fact, there are many benefits of building modular homes in Princeton, WV. However, they can all be summed up with one word: CONVENIENCE.

modular homes are constructed as modules in a factory setting where the environment is controlled before they are assembled at their eventual permanent location. Building modular homes is comparably cheaper than building a traditionally built home because they are prefabricated in an assembly line system with pre-stocked, high standard building materials. These building materials are safely stored and secured against the harmful elements weather and theft. This reduces material waste and loss. Additionally, the building materials are bought in bulk which lowers the purchase cost.

During construction, the modular building process is monitored and inspected regularly to ensure that all modular homes meet or exceed state and local building code and specifications.

Our modular home floor plans and building designs can be customized to your needs and requests. Each modular home is made up of multiple modules, that when assembled at the permanent site will create comfortable, safe and beautiful homes. By viewing our model modular homes, our clients are able to get a glimpse of the finished product that will be their dream home. Our pre-set modular floor plans also allow customizations and additional details in order to match the specific requirements and unique preferences of our customers.

Modular homes provide homebuyers a platform for home construction where their time and money can be maximized through the most convenient building option. If you are interested in a quote or wish to tour a modular home, please visit Silverpoint Homes.

Traditional Cape Cod Modular Homes – A Flexible Floor Plan that Addresses Modern Necessities - Charleston, WV

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, January 29, 2015

Custom-built modular homes in Charleston, WV continue to be popular because of the wide array of design options that are available. Whichever modular floor plan you choose; you will always have the best value per square foot for your money.

One of the most popular modular floor plans that many homeowners choose to build is the Traditional Cape Cod style modular home. This style home originated in the 17th century, but its clean and classic look remains popular. Cape homes offer a more affordable style in the modular home construction industry. Cape Cod homes are known for simplicity, with little ornamentation so they blend with the landscape. However, this is one of the advantages of a Cape home; you are free to add more features and fixtures to your Cape Cod modular home in addition to the standard build specifications.

Traditionally, Cape Cod homes have a symmetrical design that can withstand stormy weather conditions. They are usually single story homes with a pitched roof and a central chimney. The steep roof and low ceiling prevents excessive accumulation of snow on the house in winter and help to aid in proper ventilation during summer.

Older style Cape homes have a main door in between two multi-paned windows on the front. Today, this is not the only exterior style design. Cape Cod modular homes now often have a second floor in which you can configure up to 3 bedrooms, depending on your need for space. There are many options to optimize the floor space of these broad-framed homes. And, if you are undecided on how you want to use the upstairs space, you can add dormers for increased space as well as for additional light and ventilation in your home.

Business Spotlight: Silverpoint Homes of NC Builds Cutting-Edge Modular Homes

Joseph Coupal - Friday, January 09, 2015

Because of the vast opportunities for expansion and various options for customization in modular home construction, modular homes in North Carolina continue to be a popular choice for home construction. For this reason, the Lincoln Times News has chosen to spotlight Silverpoint Homes, a modular home construction company, as their Business Spotlight of the week. The general manager and co-owner, Mark Weaver, discusses briefly how modular homes gain their cutting edge over site-built homes.

Business Spotlight: Silverpoint Homes

For more than two decades, Mark Weaver has immersed himself in the modular home industry. A Lincoln County native, he serves as Silverpoint Homes of North Carolina’s general manager and co-owner.

“The company started in West Virginia by Larry Stover in 1997," Weaver said. “Larry saw the opportunity here to expand and Key Properties wanted to go in a different direction…so we purchased (the business from them) Sept. 1."

According to Weaver, the company offers a diverse array of services for his industry.

“We handle everything from the permits to the construction of the home to building driveways," he said. “We do site grading, dig the footers to the foundation, set the home, finish the molding and flooring, complete the shingles on the roof, finish the electrical, plumbing and HVAC work. We can provide driveways, a septic system, porches and decks. We can help customers find property too, but we don’t sell land."

Like the traditional “site-build home" construction, Silverpoint’s modular homes use the International Residential Code for inspections.

“There are a lot of advantages (to modular homes)," Weaver said. “Everything is manufactured in a controlled environment. When it rains, we can still work because we have a roof already over us. There’s more lumber used, and (the homes) go through extensive inspection from a third-party agency. From the time financing is finished, it typically takes between 90-120 days to complete a job, and it generally doesn’t matter what size of house it is."

Silverpoint Homes of North Carolina typically sells to customers within a 100-mile radius, with the majority of its work taking place in Lincoln, Gaston, Catawba, Cleveland, McDowell, Iredell, Burke and Mecklenburg counties. Occasionally, Weaver said, the Lincolnton location has worked with South Carolina and Virginia clients.

A common misconception with modular homes is that they are only available as relatively small, one-story structures.

“We’ve done anything from 1,000 square feet to having quoted one that’s 4,200 square feet," he said. “Right now, we’re pricing a church. We can do two-story homes or add on to an existing basement. We do the same things site-builders can do, we just do it in layers."

Thus far, the business’s customers have predominantly been families looking for a 1,500-1,800 square-foot, three-bedroom home with a porch, with the company’s entry-level price point starting at $109,000. However, Weaver said the flexibility in modular home construction is competitive to site-build home construction.

“We have thousands of different plans to choose from and customize," he said.

Silverpoint Homes is located at 2125 East Main Street in Lincolnton. Its hours are Monday-Thursday from 9 a.m.-6 p.m., Friday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., with appointments available, if needed. For more information, visit, call (704) 240-3336 or visit the company’s Facebook page by searching “Silverpoint Homes of NC."

Final thoughts:

This article features the multiple advantages of choosing Silverpoint for your modular home construction. Silverpoint Homes will provide you with the best experience in home construction allowing you to build and own your dream home.

Joseph Coupal - Monday, January 05, 2015

The Plantation is one of the most popular two-story modular homes in North Carolina. This floor plan consists of 2,434 square feet all in all which is equally divided for the first floor and second floor.

The Newest Available Options in Modular Homes at Silverpoint Homes – Charleston, WV

Joseph Coupal - Friday, December 05, 2014

One of the many misconceptions about modular homes is that they are packaged homes that cannot be customized to suit individual preferences. Unfortunately, there are some modular home manufacturers that are extremely limited. Silverpoint Homes sells modular homes that have a wide range of options and customizations. Currently we feature a couple new design options in some of our model homes that are very popular with homeowners.

Full Tile Walk-in Shower

Just a few years ago, a huge soaker tub was the must have item to define a Master Bath. Many homeowners have now realized that the huge soaker is a seldom used dust collector that takes up a ton of bathroom real estate. Now, the huge spa shower is very popular as homeowners realize they shower much more frequently than take baths, so why not make that the shower a nice, enjoyable feature?

Our New Era and New Image homes now offer a walk-in spa shower option. They have a full floor to ceiling ceramic tile with glass mosaic accents, ceiling mounted rainfall shower head, 2 wand sprayers, and a Schluter®-Systems pan with 2x2” ceramic tile. They are so big, that you do not need a shower door.

Imagine showering in this everyday…….

Full Tile Walk-in Shower   Full Tile Walk-in Shower

Silverpoint Homes has the walk-in shower on display in our Charleston model at our Beckley, WV Sales Center. It can be added into most of our other modular homes.

Undermount sink with a laminate top

Undermount sink with a laminate top

Many homeowners want the look of granite or quartz countertops but not the price. Improvements in laminate countertops have made this look possible. Laminate counters are no longer a uniform pattern. Now, patterns can mimic the look of granite or quartz. Additionally, our manufacturers now offer undermount sinks and a crescent (curved) edge profile. The undermount sinks are available in stainless steel or quartz and a variety of shapes (double, single, one large/one small). The crescent edge creates a profile that looks like bullnosed granite. Most cannot tell the difference between granite and laminate and have to ask us what material is the countertop.

Silverpoint Homes currently has the new countertops and undermount sink option on display in our Beckley, Charleston, and Osceola modular model homes at our Beckley, WV Sales Center.

Walk-up Attic

It is worth mentioning that one of the most popular options at Silverpoint Homes is our most popular option on our ranch homes. Instead of a flimsy pull-down staircase, many of our modular homes can have a full staircase to a fully decked attic. This makes for tons of storage with easy access. The attic height in many of our homes is 6’8” to where you do not even need to bend down to walk around.

Silverpoint Homes currently has the walk-up attic option on display in our Beckley model home at our Beckley, WV Sales Center.

Occasionally we run into previous potential customers and find out they bought a modular home from somewhere else (yes, we are still friendly with them). After talking about their new home, we may inquire why they bought from somewhere else. The typical answer is not that they liked the other home better, but they thought they were getting a better deal by saving thousands of dollars or getting a bigger home for the same money. Unfortunately, they are now paying for it in one way or another and wished they would have bought a modular home from Silverpoint Homes.

So how can a similar size modular home cost thousands less? From builders or manufacturers specifications and options. A few big things like cabinets, carpet, and windows, and lots and lots of little detail items like door knobs, light fixtures, recessed lights, and lumber dimensions add up. We also dress up our display model modular homes to show the variety of potential options.

Silverpoint Homes believes most modular homes are well built in terms of factory quality, however not all modular homes are built to the same specifications. Over the past several years, many doublewide/HUD manufacturers converted their products up to modular, while other modular manufacturers developed homes that can look nice on the surface, but do not have “good bones” or underlying quality. It's like putting “lipstick on a pig.” Initially they look good, but over time the home has problems. This has created confusion and perception problems with homebuyers looking into modular homes.

Below is a table of specifications to aid in comparing a typical Silverpoint Homes’ modular home to a typical lower value modular home. Many are hidden specifications that will not be called out in detail on sales literature. The home might not have all the lower specifications listed but it will have several. Additionally many site builders will use similar undocumented specifications to shave costs. When you are in the final stages of selecting a home or builder, Silverpoint Homes encourages a detail specification review to ensure you get your modular home built the way you want. If price is the primary concern, we can build your home with different specifications to meet a lower price point. We can assist you in determining which specifications should really matter to you and which ones may not.

When comparing “apples to apples”, you will discover that our homes really are the Best Value per Square Foot.

Custom-Built Modular Homes: The Most Convenient Option For Housing Projects in Princeton, WV

Joseph Coupal - Sunday, September 14, 2014

People looking to build modular homes in Princeton, WV probably have done their homework and have many reasons to go that route. But there is a primary reason why prospective new home buyers are turning to modular homes instead of traditionally built homes. The reasons, however, can all be summed up with one word – CONVENIENCE.

Modular homes are constructed partially at a factory where the environment is controlled before they are assembled at their eventual locations. They are comparably cheaper because they are prefabricated on an assembly line that is stocked with high quality materials. These materials are safely stored and secured against the harmful elements of the outside surroundings, changing weather, and the threats from thieves. This reduces waste or loss of materials, which are bought in bulk to lower the purchasing cost. The assembly line is also manned by specialists and quality control experts to ensure that the building process is done right and to the highest standards.

Each modular home is made up of multiple modules, that when completely constructed on its permanent site, can create convenient and contemporary spaces. And even though modular floor plans are pre-designed, a specific floor plan can be customized at the customer's request. The homeowner has virtually unlimited say in how they customize the trim and details to their exact specifications and preferences.

Modular homes, therefore, have provided homebuyers an avenue where they can optimize their time and investment, making these homes the most convenient option for housing projects. If you are interested in quoting or touring any of these modular homes, visit or call our Silverpoint Homes Sales Center.

The All-New Charleston Model & Revised Beckley Model are Now Open for Tours

Silverpoint Homes is excited to announce that two new model homes are now open for tours at our modular home sales center near Beckley, WV. These homes are great examples of why our homes are the Best Value per Square Foot.

The Charleston

The Charleston is an all new triple wide modular cape home (3 sections deep). The triple module setup provides a very different layout than many traditional 2 module floor plans. The floor plan is open, spacious and makes the house feel much larger. Additionally, the 42’ x 42’ footprint lines up very well with an attached garage that we can build.

The first floor features 1,695 square feet with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths and second floor with 835 square feet for a potential 2,530 square feet. The second floor can be used for a media or family room, extra bedrooms, or just storage – there are numerous possibilities.

The Charleston’s kitchen has some very nice features:

  • Whirlpool Black Ice Appliances
  • Full mosaic backsplash
  • Under mount sink right in front of a huge picture window
  • Stunning gray stained flat panel oak cabinets

The master bathroom has New Era’s Versailles Spa Shower that you have to see to believe:

  • A huge 4’ x 7’ walk-in shower
  • Full tile from floor to ceiling
  • Glass mosaic accents
  • Rainfall shower head
  • Dual sprayer wands

To complete the home, the Charleston also features:

  • 8’8” ceilings
  • Renaissance trim package
  • ¾” hardwood in the kitchen and dining room

The Beckley

The Beckley is now on its 4th revision since Silverpoint Homes custom designed it around 8 years ago. The new Beckley is the same great floor plan with 2 living room areas, 3 bedrooms, and 2 bathrooms plus that huge walk-up attic.

Perhaps the most dramatic change is the exterior. We added a hip roof to break up the roof line, created a recessed entryway, and optioned bead lap vinyl siding for a unique look.

The interior is up to date with the following attractive features:

  • Gorgeous dark flat panel cabinets with long stainless steel pull handles
  • Full subway tile backsplash
  • Black quartz under mount sink
  • Arts & Crafts base time and casing package
  • Extended vinyl plank flooring

The previous model included an 8’x24’ reverse gable porch that can be added as an option to this home to add even more curb appeal.

Both homes are ready to be customized to suit your personal needs. We invite you to stop by and tour these magnificent homes at Silverpoint Homes.

Modular Homes are Custom-Built to be Cutting-Edge - Charleston, WV

Joseph Coupal - Monday, August 11, 2014

Modular Homes in Charleston, WV debunk the claim that prefab homes cannot be built to look cutting-edge. Modular construction has made the prefab home industry trendier after being underrated for years due to on-site home construction.

The flexible modular floor plans offer many customizations with any of floor plan styles, so you don't need to feel locked in by any base floor plan. That means you will have a modular home that is built uniquely for you to match your exact specifications. Just by looking at our preset floor plans, you have a starting point. Then, you can have your chosen floor plan modified to meet your preferences and requirements.

When it comes to modern design and construction, nothing beats the price of a modular home. It is less expensive to build and customize than most stick-built homes. You can reduce construction- and maintenance-related costs significantly as compared to standard site-built home building. This is because high quality materials are purchased in bulk which are then securely stored in a controlled environment until they are used to build modules.

Modular homes have a lot to offer, especially when it comes to the convenience in home designs. Find the perfect home for you at Silverpoint Homes.
