Modular homes are gaining in popularity because of their various benefits. Cost efficient, time efficient, energy efficient and arguably more durable than traditional construction.
Modular houses are those houses that are built off site. Modules are constructed and assembled in factories and are transported to the site to be assembled on the foundation. Kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms are fully assembled, complete with arrangements for electrical wiring and plumbing then transported.
Modular homes are an environment-friendly way of life. Modular homes are constructed with as much as 90% lesser waste than traditional onsite construction. This is because of the efficiency of factory construction. There is no compromise in the quality of construction or in the design of homes. Those who build a modular home can choose from 100’s of interior designs or they can custom design a floor plan.
Another feature that makes modular homes environment friendly is its recyclable and reusable nature. Modules that together form a house can be dismantled to be transported elsewhere, which is something a traditionally constructed home can never offer. You can literally relocate your house if you move.
Modular homes are highly energy efficient and cost-effective. Modular homes are also much stronger than stick built homes. The parts that together constitute a house are constructed such that they survive the rigors of shipping and transportation.

The questions phoned into us on a regular basis are welcomed and an enjoyable aspect of our business. We must admit, however, some of the calls are “head scratchers”. It’s difficult to understand the mystery that, for many, continue to surround the modular home construction experience. So, you might understand why we are mystified about the occasional question: “Can I get a new construction loan for a modular home”? Well of course, the answer is a resounding “Yes”! But let’s discuss new construction loans for a minute.
Home construction loans have different requirements and different sets of rules than other types of consumer loans. New home construction loans are used interchangeably for both old-school stick built construction and new modular home construction projects. We take great pride in helping every single avenue of building out your dream modular home. That includes sharing our vast knowledge of the home consumer loan industry.
A new construction home loan requires the lender to provide the money to build your new home. Firstly, your mortgage provider requires a detailed accounting of the estimated costs to build the modular home; including how much you are going to spend and what it will look like when it is complete. After these initial questions are answered you begin the credit check and annual earnings process.
There are a few different construction loans out there but the most popular one is a “construction to permanent” loan. Instead of first applying for a construction loan and following that up with a typical home loan, a construction to permanent loan is a two-in-one loan which, in most cases, only requires you to pay closing costs once. This loan is a combination of construction loans and permanent financing and can help you save money and time.
Keep in mind that with new construction loans it is very difficult to lock-in a permanent or fixed mortgage rate. This is because, with traditional construction, you usually won't be closing the loan for six months to one year depending on the build time. With modular construction, because the build time is so much shorter, you can more often get a fixed-rate or the fixed rate you close with after construction will be very close to the variable rate you had when you took out the loan.
Of course, you will be required to pay monthly interest on the construction loan amount during the modular construction process, but the amount you owe each month will depend on the amount you have used to date. If you are approved for a construction loan of $100,000 but you have only drawn $50,000 then your interest payment will be based on $50,000.
Sometimes lenders like to interview or see the license of the contractors who will be building your new home, so often it is beneficial to speak with the bank where the contractor has a relationship.

We thought we’d address some of the consumer FAQ’s that we receive regarding the modular home buying and construction process. We do this out on our ”why buy a modular home webpage”, but thought it would help many of you by posting them here on our blog. So first, the process:
Depending on the floor plan and style, between 75-85% complete.
About 4-6 weeks.
Yes. However, this may be at an additional cost.
Mobile Homes - built to a lax code with generally substandard building products (when compared to modular or site-built homes). Built on a steel frame to hold it together, most have wheels.
Modular Homes - built generally to the toughest codes required in the state, built out of the same type of building materials and name brands you would find in site-built homes. There are no steel frames underneath, only an approved floor system. There are no wheels of their own, they are transported and then lifted off the transporter and set with a crane.
As with stick-built construction the cost of a modular home in Newport News will vary depending on what you put in the home and the style of the home you choose. Modular home prices compare favorably with an equivalent site-built home.
Yes. There are standard floor plans of course; however, floor plans of each style home can be customized, as well as the amenities inside the home.
