The argument is often made that home buyers who prefer an existing home are those who rank convenience as one of their top priorities. They prefer to be able to move into their home immediately, whereas, those who build place high importance on customization are more suited to building a new home.
It is assumed that purchasing an existing home takes less time and, when comparing it to conventional site–building, that is correct. A site-built home can take anywhere from six months to a year or longer to complete.
Purchasing an existing home involves many steps and time such as pre-qualifying for a loan, searching for homes, making offers, obtaining financing, getting a home inspected and going through the closing process, which all can take months.
Homeowners can save time by purchasing and building a modular home. Modular homes are not only completely customizable but also are time-efficient. This is due to efficiencies in off-site construction and on-site building practices. The majority of the home is built within the confines of a state-of-art production facility. The home is systematically built and quality-assured through precision construction techniques to a degree of completion. Time is maximized because simultaneously while the home is being built, the builder is also preparing the home site, clearing, excavating and installing the permanent foundation.
When it’s nearly completed, the home is scheduled and delivered to the job site. Depending on the complexity of the home, and from the day it’s set, it can take between 30 and 120 days to complete it.
