5 Reasons People Prefer Modular Homes

Modular Homes NCAre you or someone you know looking for a new home in North Carolina? Have you considered going modular? Those on the hunt for a home are making their way to the modular market more and more every year, and it’s easy to see why. Modular homes give buyers a long list of  benefits and are often greatly preferable over traditional housing. Yates Home Sales helps home searchers find exactly what they’ve been dreaming of every day, and our clients most often say it’s because they couldn’t find what they wanted anywhere else. Either their dream home wasn’t in their budget, or the houses they had seen weren’t fully customized to their taste and would require alterations. Modular homes cut through all those limitations. You can have your cake and eat it, too. If you’ve heard much about modular housing, you’ve likely heard that this route can become complicated due to old-standing NC city and county laws and ordinances. However, our team at Yates has helped countless home buyers understand and work through these fading legalities and restrictions so they can finally have a home they love that truly works for them and their family.

So, why exactly are modular homes so popular?

Perks of Prefab housing

We could go on and on about why so many home searchers jump on the prefabricated housing bandwagon, but it really comes down to a list of perks that you just can’t beat. How many homeowners can say they designed their home around them and easily afforded it? When you go prefab, doors like that open and opportunities become available to a range of budgets. Some of the main benefits of modular homes include:

  • Construction is fast. Need to get into your new home quickly or just can’t stand the wait? With modular housing, you can be in your new home in impressive time. Since most of the home is built in our state-of-the-art, climate-controlled facility, we don’t have to pause for weather conditions or worry about materials exposed to the elements being damaged and needing repair.
  • They’re high in quality. Building the homes in our facility means materials are kept safe and mistakes happen less frequently due to being in a more controlled environment. Once we bring the home sections to your site, there’s less room for error during this final phase of construction.
  • Modular is affordable. Prefabricated homes cost an average of 30% less than traditional homes because the time spent to build them is better optimized. Modular homes are able to be built year-round without stopping for weather conditions.
  • They’re customizable. Prefab housing offers a range of options, so you really can design your own home around you and your family. With traditionally built homes, you have to take what’s there, unless you have the money to remodel, which most buyers don’t after buying the high cost of the house. We at Yates offer our buyers a full catalog of sizes, layouts, and styles so they can pick and choose what works for them because we want the result to be a home you can love for the long haul.
  • Prefabricated homes perform. With Yates’s certified Energy Star housing, you get an impressively energy efficient home due to the precision with which these factory-built houses are created. Quality inspections at each stage ensure you’re getting a house that not only looks great, but is durable and reliably functional as well.

That said, what are you waiting for? If you haven’t found the house you’re looking for yet, give modular homes consideration. Yates is proud to work with home searchers all over NC, and we’ve helped many exhausted searchers finally get the house of their dreams at a price they could afford. Want to join them?

"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 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!
