Finding Affordable Modular Homes in Ohio

There is a trick to finding the best, most affordable modular homes on the market in Ohio. The increase in popularity of modular homes means more people are looking into why they should build one to call their own and how to make it unique, while also saving money. To find out if an affordable modular home is a way to go, look at some of the reasons why it might be time to consider it. 

Going ‘Mod’

Modular homes are built in a factory and come in at least two or more sections. This immediately distinguishes them from typical homes built on foundations. Even though they can look alike, they have many differences. Due to the differences, their price points can vary and amenities will not be the same. There is still a way to get the square footage and floor plans people desire at a reasonable price point. 

Customizing Your Modular Home

Modular homes in Ohio offer many different floor plans and designs. Customization is one way to keep modular homes affordable for consumers. Custom finish options are a great way to make a modular home your own. Some of the great ways to customize your home include:

  • Carpet
  • Vinyl
  • Hardwood
  • Tile flooring
  • Counter tops
  • Siding 
  • Roofing
  • Entry doors
  • Decks and porch add-ons

Beyond the add-ons that make a modular home affordable, budget is always kept in mind. This reduces the cost further because you can choose materials that keep costs lower.

Financing

A modular home is similar to financing a regular brick-and-mortar home. From traditional to personal loans, the choices are similar to a regular home but vary depending on the lender. Some lenders specialize in modular home financing. These options help buyers move in and refinance at close to a standard rate offered to other home buyers, depending on their financial situation. 

Construction 

Another way to find an affordable modular home in Ohio is to look at construction and shipping times. Climate-controlled environments help builders minimize weather-related delays which keeps costs lower. Affordability is about sustainability and completing the project on time and within budget. Within 3-4 months, a modular home can be completed versus a traditional home completed in as long as 8 months. 

Cost-Efficient Building

Keep in mind some key factors when looking at modular homes. What impacts the ability to find affordable modular homes is:

  • Where the home is built. If the home is going to be in a unique area, it might cost more to transport it, get permits, and develop the land. It might still be cheaper than a traditional home but they are factors to consider
  • Square footage of the home. It helps to know how much square footage is enough. To factor this into cost, multiply the price per square foot by the desired square footage. Smaller homes are less money but it all depends on how a person expects to grow into the home or if they are staying on the smaller side
  • Customizing a home can get costly. Adding fixtures, features, and design elements can add up over time. Be sure to look over what exactly is necessary to do the homework for the exact budget and stick to that 

Building a home is never an easy process but finding an affordable modular home is easier than ever. It is a great time to look at investing in a different type of space that will become a forever home. Affordable modular homes come in all shapes and sizes and with more options to customize, the cost can be kept lower and within budget, so many people can build the home of their dreams without extensive overhead costs.
