What are manufactured and modular homes?
Manufactured and modular homes are built completely in a factory, and later transported to be placed on a home site. Both come in a wide variety of architectural styles, layouts, and sizes. Most manufactured homes are single-story, whereas modular homes can be constructed in multi-story sections if so desired.
Because all manufactured homes are subject to the federal Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards, also known as the HUD Code, manufactured homes are held to higher safety, durability, efficiency, roof load, and wind resistance standards than site-built homes. Along with top-tier quality and safety, they offer many benefits compared to other housing alternatives. Read on to learn more about how UMH makes it simple to design and purchase a manufactured or modular home.
The UMH Difference
Affordability & Financing
What homes are available in your location for under $200,000? What years were they built? Are the appliances new? Do they have open concept floor plans? UMH makes it possible to own a brand new, beautiful 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom home with new appliances, custom-design, open floor plans constructed from high-grade materials for under $200,000.
Quick Build Times
Homes built in factories are built more quickly than homes constructed on-site. Since they are built on an efficient assembly line in a controlled environment with no weather delays, factory-built homes can be built and ready to ship in as little as six weeks.
Time is on your side with manufactured and modular homes. Land work like septic, crawl spaces, basements, electrical and plumbing can all be done while the home is being built in a quality-controlled factory, which can reduce the build-time by months.
Location, Location, Location
UMH will place a home on your land. If you don’t have land and are on the market for a new home, we own and operate 127 communities. We can help you find a location that matches your lifestyle, so you can live in a home you love, close to where you work and play.
Manufactured and modular homes are built with standardized materials in climate-controlled factories, and quality inspected before they ship, during and after installation.
