YES Communities 01/10/2019

There are several key factors to consider when beginning the journey of buying a new home. From the location, price, and quality, the new homebuyer can make many decisions on the path to homeownership. Now more than ever, manufactured homes are becoming a desirable option for new homeowners across the country. The benefits of manufactured housing have evolved greatly over time. Below we share 5 key benefits of buying a new home with YES! Communities.

1. Affordability

It’s no secret that manufactured homes are a less expensive option compared to site-built homes. The average cost of a new home sold in 2018 was $362,400 [Source: U.S. Census Bureau.], compared to the average cost of a new manufactured home in 2018 of $70,600. [Source: Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI).] YES! Communities offers an even more affordable option for home buyers with an average price of $64,000 for new homes.

Contrary to popular belief, the affordability of manufactured housing doesn’t compromise the quality of the homes. All manufactured homes are built in controlled environments by professional tradesman. All materials are purchased and used in volume on a structured, uniform assembly line. Manufactured homes are also built in one-fifth of the time – all contributing to the lower costs.

2. Quality and Energy Efficiency

Since 1976, all manufactured homes must adhere to strict guidelines administered by the federal HUD code. Regulations around durability, energy efficiency, and wind safety which directly influence the construction and design of the homes. In addition, manufactured homes have to pass the same safety and building standards as site-built homes, with a third-party inspection required for all homes before leaving their facilities.
