Before Living in a Modular Home in Boston

12 May 2014

Custom-built modular homes are becoming more and more popular. While the building process is far easier than building a home with traditional construction, there are still certain parts of the process that a buyer needs to take care of.

Permits and Papers

Any new residential construction needs a building permit for construction. So take the time to find out what the necessary requirements are in the area where you plan to build a modular home. Pertinent documents are needed for construction of your home and the building lot. Because modular home builders are experts at new construction, and modular homes are built to meet or exceed all local and state building codes, they can help with this and can in fact, walk you through the process.

Appraising Modular Homes – Boston

25 April 2014

Now that it is spring, more and more homeowners are reviewing their new home options. For many this includes considering building a new home. There are two options when it comes to new construction: traditional site-built construction or modular construction. When considering modular construction, the question often arises about how modular homes appraise compared to traditionally-built home. The answer is simple; the modular home appraisal process is the same as that of traditionally built homes.

In order to qualify for a home loan, the home you want to buy, or build, needs to be appraised. The appraisal is the estimated amount you can expect to pay for your new home. When building a new home, you need a licensed professional appraiser. But how is the home appraised if it is not yet built?

The modular home plans are reviewed by the appraiser to determine how much it should cost you to build your new home. Labor rates, materials costs, and local depreciation and appreciation are all figured into the appraisal. Also, sales comparisons, prices and values of local similar homes are also used to determine the current value.

Once this analysis has been completed, a report is put together and sent to the mortgage company in order to initiate the mortgage process.

All of the above will determine the current total value of the new property. Many modular home builders have relationships with mortgage companies who are familiar with the process. So if you are considering modular construction, your modular home builder can help you along with your mortgage initiation process as well as the appraisal process.

Advantages of Modular Construction is Making it a More Popular Building Option - New York

11 April 2014

Modular homes are becoming more popular in New York and on Long Island.

Prefabricated homes that are assembled on-site but manufactured elsewhere have come a long way; these days, they’re often stronger and more energy efficient than traditionally constructed homes. Among their many time-saving advantages are electric, heating and plumbing systems already built in when the modules arrive at the assembly site.

Costs are lower too and there is a reason for it. For example, plumbers are only needed to connect modular homes to main water and sewer lines.

For a regular 3,000-square foot-home, with traditional construction it could be a $10,000 plumbing job. With modular construction it can be cut down to about $2,000 because only 20% of the plumbing job will be done on-site. This is an example of how the cost of modular construction is lessened.

The number of annual manufactured-home shipments has been rebounding nicely since it bottomed out in 2009 as a result of the housing crisis. The number of annual prefab shipments increased steadily from 2009 to 2011, and by 2012 represented roughly 10% of all housing starts nationally.

The number of people choosing prefab options is definitely increasing. They are clearly becoming greater in popularity. Some of that relates to Sandy issues and some of that relates to cost issues.

Modular homes, on average, don’t cost much less than traditionally constructed homes. The prices vary depending on the particular options each homeowner chooses to include and where the final construction takes place. But the time to build a home when using modular construction is significantly decreased.

Instead of price, many cite speed as the biggest factor behind the increased popularity of modular construction. Modular homes are especially appealing to displaced Sandy victims, who can have a roof over their heads again much quicker if it’s pre-fabricated.

The typical modular-home construction process takes about seven weeks – considerably faster than the 10 months to a year it takes to build a traditional house.

Traditional home-building is also subject to weather-related construction delays and other setbacks, while modular homes are watertight from the start. And while traditionally built homes run the standard storm-related risks, prefab houses have additional strength and stability that allow them to hold up much better in hurricane force winds of 130-mph.

Modular Multi-Family Homes Make Good Business Sense for Investors – Massachusetts, New York

21 March 2014

It’s not quite like putting together Legos, but piece-by-piece, a new condominium development can be constructed.

Modular condominium projects, constructed off site, can be pieced together to form a multi-unit, multi-story community.

For many reasons including construction time and cost, modular apartment buildings are becoming more and more popular among developers. A number of modular apartment buildings were recently constructed in communities around Massachusetts and New York.

The range of benefits of modular construction run the gamut from cost to environmental.

Modular construction has a significantly smaller carbon footprint than the traditional footprint of traditional stick built framing of homes or apartments. Factory built home construction uses a lot less energy and is far more efficient than a typical construction site where everything is built on site.

Another benefit to modular multi-unit home construction; the labor costs and efficiencies are far better doing a project of that size in a timeframe that it can be done efficiently and where you are not going over budget.

Once the individual sections are constructed in the modular home factory, they are trucked to the building sire and lifted into place by a crane. Once that begins to happen, in just a matter of days, the majority the building can be put in place.

Once the sections are lifted into position they are locked together so that much of the inside work can then begin including the mechanical work inside the building, the heating systems, connecting the electrical; all of the HVAC and siding is also done once the modules are fully blocked together. Once this is complete, the roof trusses go up and the roof is completed.

The units can be sold as condos for individual buyers or owned and rented as an investment property.

Once completed, multi-family modular homes are high quality buildings that are much more economical. They makes good business sense for any investor.
