System-built homes
System-built homes turn dreams into reality for thousands of Americans every year. Like site-built homes, system-built homes can be placed almost anywhere — beautiful, waterfront property, nestled deep in the woods or in a cozy neighborhood setting.
Affordability
There's a system-built home for nearly every budget. Before you start house hunting, determine how much home you can afford, with the help of a retailer or financial institution. Your budget is based on your family's income, credit score, monthly expenses, down payment and loan interest rate.
Community living
Land-lease communities provide homeowners with affordable housing in a great neighborhood environment. Residents own their homes, but lease their home sites, freeing their budgets from the additional expense of land ownership.
 

Advantages of system-built homes

System-built housing construction costs can be 15 to 20 percent less than the cost of on-site construction. Since the homes are built in a factory, there aren't any weather damaged materials to replace and, by purchasing building materials for several homes at once and using them as needed, the cost of the home is considerably reduced.

Advice for homebuyers

Modular homes make great vacation homes

re you wanting a place to get away from it all, but without the challenges, frustrations and costs associated with building a new vacation cottage or purchasing an older, used home? Consider private property placement of a brand new luxury modular home, suggests the Michigan Manufactured Housing Association.

“For people with the property, but not necessarily the desire to build a new home from the ground up, modular homes are worth taking a look at,” says Phil LaMarch of Phil and Lee’s Homes, Escanaba, Michigan. “The main advantages to buying a high-end modular house as your vacation home are the time and money savings,” LaMarch said.

Is your home energy efficient?

An energy efficient home saves energy, saves money on utility bills, and helps protect the environment by reducing the amount of electricity that needs to be generated. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), running an energy efficient household could save you 10 to 50 percent on your monthly energy costs.

Your career in the housing industry

Manufactured housing continues to be an important segment of the total housing market in Michigan.

Whether you are looking to begin your career as an installer/servicer of manufactured homes or you are looking to advance your existing installer/servicer career, we have classes available to assist.
