Aren't modular homes mobile homes?
You may be thinking of HUD building code homes that have a chasis underneath.
Prefab systems-built homes are built to the same local and international building codes (IRC) as a site built home. Consequently, appraisers don't differentiate nor do banks - they use the same exact comparables they'd use if you were buying a site built home.
They are the same, the only difference is where they are made, not how they are made.
How are they financed?
Same as a site built home
Using the same Fannie Mae loans you'd get when buying a site built home. Contact us for names and banks that regularly do prefab home loans.
Aren't they worth less than a site built custom home?
In studying the sold properties in the Crested Butte area MLS, we found that most prefab systems-built homes aren't differentiated or labeled any differently in the MLS. The models of the pictures above on our site show $5,000,000 prefabs that one of our factories made.
