What Are the Differences Between Manufactured Homes & Modular Homes?, Kerrville, Texas

If you’re looking for a new home that’s both affordable and structurally sound, consider either a manufactured home or a modular home. Though these terms are often used interchangeably, there is actually a difference between the two. If you’re contemplating a move, it’s important that you understand the difference between the two options. Here’s a quick explanation to help you make an informed decision between manufactured homes and modular homes.

Manufactured Homes Vs. Modular Homes: What’s the Difference?

Modular Homes Are Built for Permanent Slabs

manufactured homesOne of the main differences between manufactured and modular homes is the permanence of the structure in a set location. Modular homes are built on slabs that are meant to stay in one place. You can have a modular home built for a specific lot or purchase a modular home and then find a specific location that would work for it. Modular homes are still built mainly in factories. Those factories provide sections that can easily be put together and completed at the actual home site.

Manufactured Homes Can Be Moved

Manufactured homes are usually completed in factories and built on steel chassis or trailers that can easily move from place to place. This allows you to purchase the home even if you don’t have a set location in place. Or, you can move it to a set location, and you’ll have the flexibility to move it to a new one if that becomes necessary down the road.
