How Do I Find a Modular Home Builder?
Finding a modular home builder is easy, finding a good modular home builder might be a bit tougher. I have sold to all kinds of modular home builders when I was a factory rep. I found in my experience, the best modular home builders were not only experienced in years, they also concentrated all of their efforts building modular homes. All of the builders listed on MHP have years of experience building only modular homes as their main source of income. Often you will find "builders" who are masons, electricians, handy men or other trade looking to be a modular home builder - In the modular home business we call them "Wanna Be Builders".
Wanna Be Builders
Wanna Be Builders have business cards, a new relationship with a factory and maybe even a website. What they don't have is an office or any homes that have been completed to show you. Stay away from wanna be modular home builders - let them sell homes to their friends, family and others. Inexperienced modular home builder usually will give you a great price, but the cost of finishing the home will cost more and the time frame will be extended - driving the cost of the modular homes construction loan up.
