New Modular Homes
The first decision that you will need to make is what modular home dealer you want to work with. Modular home dealers specialize in geographical areas. They offer the model of modular homes that are best suited for the climate and tastes of the area. When you look for a dealer to work with make sure that they are licensed to do business, that they don’t have any negative claims against them with the Better Business Bureau, and make sure that they offer the style and quality of homes that you want.
The second decision that you will need to make during the process of buying new modular homes is what home model that you want to buy. As I mentioned above dealers only stock the home models that are suited for the climate and style taste of the surrounding area. Because of this not all models are available in every area. To find out what models are available in your area you will need to visit your local modular home dealerships. Walk through the model homes to get an idea of how the homes are laid out and how they look with different design features.
The third decision that you will need to make during the process of buying new modular homes is how you want your home set up. You can have it set up on a rented lot or a lot that you own. If you own the lot then you will also need to decide what type of foundation to use. You can have a permanent foundation slab or a basement foundation. The type of foundation that you select will need to take into consideration your preferences as well as the requirements set out by your financer.
The fourth decision that you will need to make during the process of buying new modular homes is what financer to use. Some lenders won’t offer a mortgage for a modular home unless it is set up on a permanent foundation. Others completely refuse to lend money for a modular home. If you are having troubles finding a traditional loan for your modular home, you may want to talk to a mortgage broker.
The final decision that you will need to make during the process of buying new modular homes is what design features you want in your home. You can select the color of the walls, the type of flooring you want, and the type of window treatments that you want. You also get to select the grade of materials used in your home. During this decision process you get the opportunity to customize your home.
