Can modular homes be affordable?

Can Quality Modular Homes in North Carolina (NC) and Virginia (VA) still be affordable?

If you are working within a tight budget but still want a home of outstanding build quality, that is also energy efficient and both looks and functions well in terms of design and layout, you can achieve all that and more by purchasing a modular home.

There are a number of factors that make modular homes an affordable housing option, including:

  • The bulk purchasing of building materials, appliances, flooring, and accessories results in cost savings, that can then be passed on to the homebuyer.
  • The build phase of your home and the site preparation (including the building of the foundation) can happen simultaneously, saving time and money. This is unlike site-built homes that require the completion of one phase before the other can begin.
  • As modular homes are built in an optimized climate-controlled factory environment, typically by full-time staff who are each experienced in their particular part of the process, the homebuyer benefits from quality consistency as well as decreased labor time and costs.
  • Modular homes are also not affected by weather or site vandalism related delays or costs, as can be the case with site-built homes.

Modular homes and site-built homes are built to the same state building codes and standards, as required by North Carolina and Virginia, as well as to the same local authority requirements.

What to look out for when shopping for an affordable modular home:

Don’t just look for the cheapest modular home. Not every modular home builder is the same. Look for a builder with a Grade A construction license (to secure the best quality build) and take a moment to check with the Better Business Bureau (BBB) to make sure you are buying from a reputable builder. It’s free and fast to check online.

Also look for a Certified Energy Star Builder in order to ensure that your modular home will be optimized for energy efficiency and long-term energy savings.

The Modular Home Construction Process in North Carolina (NC) and Virginia (VA)

When working with a Grade A Builder, the modular home construction process is fast, straightforward and seamless. Work with an inexperienced, or unreliable builder however, or take on more than you can handle yourself, and the process can quickly become very costly, ugly, and stressful.

As a homebuyer, it really pays to do your research and find a reputable builder who can offer you peace of mind, open communication, years of experience and outstanding build quality.

A typical timeframe for a modular home is between 6 and 14 weeks, which is considerably faster and less expensive than a site-built home equivalent.

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.

"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!
