The affordability gap in comparison to tradition site-built homes id due to the efficiencies of the factory building process. Manufactured homes are constructed with standard building materials, (same as site-built), and are built almost entirely off-site in a factory.
The controlled construction environment and assembly-line techniques remove many of the problems encountered during traditional home construction, such as weather, theft, vandalism, damage to building products and materials, and unskilled labor.
Much like other assembly-line operations, manufactured homes benefit from the economies of scale, resulting from purchasing large quantities of materials, products, and appliances. Manufactured home builders can negotiate savings on many components used in building a home, with these savings passed on directly to the manufactured homebuyer.
Technology advances allow manufactured home builders to offer a variety of architectural styles and exterior finishes that heretofore where not available off-site, that will suit most any buyer's dreams white allowing the home to blend seamlessly into most any neighborhood.
"Time is money". Greater flexibility and efficiency of the manufacturing process allows for customization of each home to meet a buyer's lifestyle and needs and are pre-planned before the home begins the construction phase and does not delay completion.
