Going to look at a modular home

A modular home is not the same thing as a "trailer" they are very well built, many up to code and have beautiful modern interiors often for the fraction of the cost of a stick built or traditionally built house. I want to try to sell my house and have for years. As soon as I can get more out of here..and I need to put a red letter date on my calendar..I will put it on the market. However, I want to see what I am looking at in terms of overall costs and upkeep should I decide to move into one of these homes.

Years ago I looked into that option but after talking to the sales rep I was lead to believe, mind you this is from a sales rep, that in order for this to work in my best interest I should first buy a tract of land where I'd want it built. The price for the land wasn't so bad but then he started talking about the price of the home. HA, it was so expensive I decided on a mobile home. Not a bad choice, all things considered.

They do look good on the inside, and actually many of them are bigger than what homes are depending on the model design on them. We were looking into something like that before we bought our home almost 9 yrs ago. The problem we found is either you need to purchase a plot of land to put them on, or have them in some of the newer looking trailer parks, etc which can get costly. Weigh out the pros and cons when you start looking, and ask a lot of questions.

I know you need a tract of land..they have their own development where they sell the homes. However, most of the ones that I would be interested in have been sold already. You can't confuse these with trailers though they are not trailers as I am sure you know from investigating them. In fact, we have one in our devlopment know that was moved in in sections. However, I need to find out more about what is available. If I do find one I like..I need to try to find something that is ready to move in when I sell my house..not one where I have to find somewhere to live while buying a lot and they are readying it.

My in-laws had a modular home on 10 acres of land. It was a beautiful home.

I remember looking at modular homes a few years ago.. .atleast online. There was a place that built and sold them not far from where I used to live. Good Luck and I hope you can find something that suits you.

It's wise to check out the real estate market and see what's available, the cost and the neighborhood before you actually sell your house. Good luck with your house hunting

Over here, they are using the prefabricated construction method to build high rise apartments. We joke that we are going to live in a lego world, where one apartment just stacks on top of another apartment until you reach 40th story or whatever height the building will be.
