Magnificently Built Modular Homes
A typical modular home built in 2010 has three bedrooms (71.6%), two full bathrooms (56%) and vinyl siding (83.9%).
On average, modular homes take about five months to complete, compared to 6.9 months for a traditional site-built home, and this average savings of roughly two months has been consistent over time.
Modular homes also tend to be slightly smaller, with an average of 1,902 square feet, compared to 2,387 for site-built, and less expensive, with average permit value of $76.80 per square foot versus $94.34 for site-built.
U.S. Census data show that modular homes are more often in the northeastern part of the country, with particular market growth in New York and Virginia.
For 2012, 12-month modular construction is projected to be about 13,300 homes, a 9.4 percent increase over 2011.
