There are many advantages to a pre-manufactured home and there is a great deal of choice nowadays with a wide range of styles to fit every budget, so there is a good chance you will find a home you love. Like any new home though, there is a lot to consider so here are a few of the things you should think about before making the final decision.
Do you have the land to put it on? You have a few options here, for example, you could purchase a piece of land yourself to put the home on, or you can lease land that has been specially designed for prefabricated homes. Then there is the option of purchasing the land and house together.
Do your research. It’s important to know all the legal requirements associated with a home like this including the rules in place regarding zoning laws and utility connections, etc. Make sure these are rules for your specific area as they may vary from place to place.
Study the manufacturer's warranty. Check that this covers you for the transportation and installation of the home and be aware of taking any actions that would void the warranty such as not following the home maintenance guidelines.
If you decide that a prefabricated home is right for you, make sure you have it thoroughly inspected after installation to check everything is working just the way it should.
