Our Modular Process, from Concept to Move In

Modular housing is becoming more and more popular, but many still aren’t aware of the variety of benefits that come with going the prefab route. There is a large pool of homebuyers out there right now that are curious about alternative home options, but they often end up still going the traditional route simply because it’s more familiar. They generally already know what the traditional process entails or they closely know someone who can guide them. Since many people aren’t well-versed in the modular housing process, they’re deterred from looking into it due to the uncertainty factor, even if going the traditional path means paying more.

The prefab home process, however, isn’t that foreign, and we at Yates Home Sales have designed ours to be incredibly easy, convenient, and tailored around the homebuyer’s needs. Our tried-and-true process consists of just six steps that get you from dreaming of your ideal home to turning the key. Learn more about our six-step process below to see how you can save money, make your dream a reality, and enjoy the ride doing it.

1. Let’s Talk

To begin your modular journey, we invite you to Yates Homes for a casual, no-obligation consultation in which you’ll be able to tour our model home. We’ll go over with you all the layouts and features available to you to select from when designing your home, and our design experts will listen to your ideas to get a good feel for what you’re after. After looking at our inspiration resources and talking out your vision with our consultants, you’ll likely have a good idea of what you’re looking for in your modular home.

2. Establish a Budget

Home buying is a big deal, no matter which route you go. It’s important to clearly calculate what your budget is before getting too far into the process. Determine what you’re comfortable with, speak with your financial representatives, and we’ll help you figure out how your home preferences and must-haves relate to your respective budget.

3. Select a Style

At Yates Homes, we have a range of home style options to choose from. Ranches, two-stories, distinctive Cape Cods: there’s something modular for everyone. Your design consultant will help you look at the features and functionality of each, as well as discuss with you your tastes and specific needs so you can feel confident the home you choose will comfortably represent you and your family for many years to come.

4. Decide on a Floor Plan

Once you know your budget, the style you want, and what features you’re after, it’s time to pick a floor plan. The layout of your home shouldn’t be taken lightly; it’s what makes your home flow and function in a comfortable way. To help, our consultants will show you a variety of floor plan models you can choose from, or help you customize one based on your needs and preferences.

5. Give It Some Flair

The bones are done; now it’s time to add some personality! From here, you’ll get to make the selections that determine the aesthetics of your modular home. After working with your consultant and exploring our on-site samples, you’ll choose your personal touches, including paint colors, trim style, flooring, appliances, doors, windows, accessories, landscaping, and more.

6. Get Ready to Move

Between steps one and five, the Yates team will have all they need to design and build your dream home. Due to the beneficial nature of prefab housing, you’ll end up with a result that suits your exact needs, reflects your personal style preferences, and costs considerably less than traditional housing. Once building is finished and your home is assembled on your site, you’ll be ready to move in and make your new modular home your own!

Five Star rating across the board!

We have had a wonderful experience (start to finish) with everyone at Yates. I sent an e-mail earlier in the week letting all know how much we really appreciated everyone. I think we met or spoke with most of you staff and everyone was more than helpful with any questions we had.

Your folks definitely make this painless (for us anyways) as possible and we are truly grateful.

Five star rating across the board!

"I love my new home!"

I love my new home! I have received so many compliments. One couple in particular wanted to come by and see how we customized the outside. They also wanted a 2 story house and couldn’t visualize how it would look. They asked us about our experience with the home process. This couple is now purchasing a new home from Yates!

My home is “comfortable” and I got the kitchen I was dreaming of! Thank all of you at Yates Home Sales!

"...expertise and professionalism..."

We would like to thank Yates Home Sales for their expertise and professionalism with our new home. Our sales representative was very knowledgeable of her job and she knew what we wanted for our first home. We had toured many modular dealers but, my heart kept leading me back to Yates. The staff that built our home and the workers that put it together was on point with everything. We were never left with unanswered questions. Their tour homes is well kept and beautifully decorated inside so you as a customer can actually see yourself living in one of the modulars. That’s when my husband and I decided that Yates Homes was the place to go to have our home built.

So thanks to the staff at Yates for a job well done and a special thanks to our sales representative Lydia Gibson.

"We are very pleased..."

We are very pleased with our beautiful Yates home. The staff was very helpful and patient as we planned our custom built modular home. Since we had recently lost our first home to a fire we needed to move quickly to rebuild and move back on our land. Yates worked very hard to have our family in our new home as quickly as possible.

"...we highly recommend them..."

My wife is a nurse and I handle warranty claims for one of the largest companies in Southside Virginia. We both work in fields where we know how important customer service is and should be. We don’t mind one bit telling anyone about our experience with Yates Home Sales. In fact, we highly recommend them to anyone that asks about our home. If you are in the market for a new home, go by and meet Lydia, Scott, C.R. and everyone else at Yates Home Sales. Then go look around at other places. If a top notch home, honesty and customer service are what you are looking for, I’m willing to bet that you end up right back where you started.

"My family and I are so pleased..."

My family and I are so pleased with our new home from Yates, I cannot say enough about the quick and courteous service we have received! The entire process of buying our home was made easy by the excellent staff at Yates and the service after the purchase has been great! We had one small problem with our plumbing after we moved in and the service staff from Yates was on it and had it repaired very quickly with absolutely NO FUSS. In times when good products and service seem to be getting hard to find, Yates Homes stands out as a great local company! I would recommend Yates Homes to anyone who is in the market for a well-built modular home – sold by people who care about the customers they serve!
