Bluffton Home Series
HEART OF THE LOWCOUNTRY
A modular home is simply a home that is built off-site in a factory and then transported to its new location to be assembled by a builder, as opposed to being built completely on-site.
What are the benefits of a modular home?
A modular home saves time. They are designed and built in a climate controlled environment,
and therefore, not affected by typical on-site weather delays. So, they can be completed in a
few weeks as opposed to months; and harmful weather never touches the inside of the home.
A modular home has stronger quality control. Because modular homes need to be moved to
the site, they are engineered to a higher standard of strength than stick-built homes. Third party
inspections ensure the highest level of quality through the entire modular construction process.
Modular homes are energy efficient. The increase in quality construction transfers into heating
and cooling savings for the homeowner.
Modular homes are resource conscious. Building in a factory setting greatly reduces waste
because materials and resources are recycled and reused.
Modular homes are less expensive. Because they are constructed faster and more efficiently
than 100% site-built homes, costs savings are natural. Just like site-built homes, modular homes
can be customized to your own personal tastes and budget. Each home in the Bluffton Home
Series has standard features, as well as dozens of options and upgrades available.
No, a modular home is not a manufactured or a mobile home.
Manufactured and mobile homes are not placed on permanent foundations, are considered personal property (like a vehicle), and typically depreciate in value over time.
A modular home is constructed on a permanent foundation, considered real property, and typically appreciates in value the same as traditionally-built homes.
Is a modular home the same as a mobile home?
