Magnificently Built Modular Homesinfo@avalonbuildingsystems.com
The general Ballpark price for a modular home is about $58-$70 per square foot for our models with our standard, high quality specifications. Larger colonial homes tend to be on the lower end of this range, with ranch and cape styles being towards the higher end. This price is for the house including its manufacture, delivery, sales tax, and all set costs; which include all crane and crew costs (this is not an allowance, to be increased later). This price does not include the site, foundation and what is considered "button-up" work. Be careful of other companies that do not give you complete pricing or who use “watered down” specifications to make their initial offer look good, only for you to be “up sold” later on. Always be aware to ask what their price includes and what is omitted, and have them clarify the specifications they are quoting. Avalon will provide you a firm and clear quotation along with a factory specification that is specific for your project after we receive some basic information from you.
Some other questions to consider when speaking with prospective builders: How long has the company been in business and are they experience construction professionals? Can they provide you a list of client references from recent projects? Do they provide complete turnkey services including site, foundation and finish work? These are all legitimate questions that builders should be willing to answer for you. At Avalon, we pride ourselves in being open and honest and we are more than willing to answer any questions you may have.
The general costs for our company to do a total “turnkey project" (where we do all the work from site to finish) including reasonable site, foundation, and "button-up" work, generally costs in the range of $115-130 per square foot. Colonials tend to cost less per sf than ranches and capes, which usually have less livable area. If you choose to omit or upgrade any items you will be given a credit from the standard. This price is contingent on many criteria including site conditions, design features, and final finish selections. This “ballpark” cost does not typically include add-ons like porches, decks, septic systems, demolition unless specifically requested. Unlike other companies, we prefer to get some basic information about your project early on so we can provide to you a complete “itemized” estimate to make you comfortable with the project’s overall costs. There is no need to worry about “up selling”, job overruns, contingencies or less than adequate allowances that other builders use to increase their profit at your expense.
The cost for an attached 2 car modular garage (includes insulation and finished drywall) is about $20,000 including all delivery and set costs and about $30,000 - $32,000.00 including site, foundation, overhead doors, and finish work.
*** Note: We only offer “turnkey” services in most of the New England area only***
Please bear in mind, that we can do as much or as little of the work on your project as you desire. Those who choose to do their own work may recognize savings to complete projects for less than our “turnkey” costs above. Some builders / homeowners have this ability or a relationship that allows them to save money or to bring them closer to their budget. If you have the ability or desire to do a portion of the work on your project yourself, we will exclude the cost from our estimate.
With Avalon, when you sign your contract; the price will not change and we do not like “change orders”. In most cases, the original contract price remains the same right through until the end of the project.
We hope that you find this information helpful and if you have any specific questions on the specific pricing on any of our models or about your project, please contact us or call 888-764-1297.
