Many people are downsizing when purchasing a home. The days of the MacMansion's has come to an end. People who purchase prefab homes are from all of the social classes and have different interests. There is no specific group of people who purchase prefab homes. Prefab homes are usually associated with homes like trailers, but that is not the case. Don't stereotype prefab homes because even people who are well to do have a prefab home. Many of the architects that are designing prefab homes are adding special flairs and interests to their designs. They are making them bigger and better.
In fact, many of them cost around $85,000-$500,000 and have been known to go up as much as a million dollars. People purchase them because they are being offered way more features for half the price that it would take them to build it.
It has nothing to do with the actual price; it is more about getting the better deal. People who purchase a prefab home are getting a home with all the trimmings. They don't have to install hardwood floors or redo the walls and other things because their home is completely designed to look fabulous.
Prefab homes have this stereotype that they are like a trailer, but they are not. They are smaller than you would probably build yourself, but they are nothing like a mobile home. Prefab homes have foundation built under them and are unusually added on like a regular home. People will add a garage to it, they will add a huge wrap around porch, and so on. Most prefab homes are purchased and usually placed on a lot that they has been bought or inherited. They are made to look great and classy.
Prefab homes are becoming increasingly popular because of the economy. Everyone wants to have a beautiful home and still purchase within his or her budget. By purchasing a prefab home you can have the beautiful home and not worry about the stress of building or paying several businesses to make your home look great.
By purchasing a prefab home, you still get to choose your options and most places allow you to personalize your home so that you feel like you build it. You get to have control over what it looks like, but you get it for a fraction of what it would cost for you to build. Some homes can cost up to a million dollars because of upgrades and location and because they offer so much more than people think. Prefab homes are simply just the modern home.
