What to Consider When Designing Your Modular Home

Are you interested in a new home? Finding the right place is an incredibly personal choice. It takes a lot of careful planning and consideration to not only search for but to decide on the perfect space to call home. At Yates Home Sales, we believe rather than looking for your next great home, you should be able to pick one out and have it custom made to suit your every need now and in the future.

The Benefit of Choice

While traditional house hunting can take a long time, forcing you to look up listings, check them out, negotiate pricing, deal with frustrating realtors, and, worst of all, comprise, a modular home offers a home that you pick out yourself. When you decide to go with a modular home, the process works a little differently than house hunting. Instead of trying to find a match for your needs, you can just pick the one that works best for you. We offer dozens of floor plans to choose between sizes, shapes, and number of floors.

What to Consider When Deciding on a Floor Plan

When it’s time to pick out a floor plan for your new home, there are a lot of factors to consider. The main factors are:

Family Size – How big is your family? If it’s just you and a partner moving into your new home, 1,000 square feet might be fine, but if you’re planning on having kids in the future, that might become cramped fast.
Extra Rooms – How many rooms do you need? What are you planning on doing with the space in the long run? Will you need several rooms or just a few? Planning now can yield benefits later.
Curb Appeal – A home with extra space is much more likely to run for more money in the future if you decide to sell it.

As Much Room as You Need

When you build a modular home, you’ll never have to worry about not having enough space or having too much. You simply won’t have to compromise. You’ll have the exact amount of space that you need in a package that perfectly conforms to your needs. Among our options, we give you a say over the exact number of bedrooms your get in your new house and the exact square footage you’ll have to work with. No matter the size of your family, we offer options for everyone.

A Floor Plan for Your Lifestyle

Each of our dozens of floor plans is laid out a little differently. Taking the time to weigh your options now can seriously pay off later. If you love to entertain, a larger living room can help serve as a social space. On the other hand, if you enjoy cooking, a more spacious kitchen can give you a great way to expand your abilities.

Options that Deliver

We think the key to loving your next home is giving the option to have total control over it. That’s why we offer so many distinct choices of floor plans and options for appearance. At Yates Home Sales, you can do anything you want with your next home. To learn more about finding your next perfect home, contact us today.

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.

"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!
