Myth #1: All Manufactured Homes Look Alike:

Contrary to popular belief, manufactured homes boast versatility in both appearance and functionality. CLMH provides an array of floor plans and customization options, enabling homeowners to tailor their dwellings to personal preferences. From gourmet kitchens to indulgent Jacuzzi tubs, and from skylights for natural illumination to bespoke entertainment spaces, the possibilities are extensive. Moreover, the industry continually innovates, introducing new materials, features, and customization choices annually. With expert guidance from Custom Living Homes, buyers can navigate the selection process seamlessly, ensuring their manufactured home aligns perfectly with their lifestyle and needs.

Myth #2: Manufactured Homes Are Poor Quality And Unsafe:

Modern manufactured homes uphold rigorous standards akin to traditional dwellings. Regulated by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), these homes adhere to stringent construction and safety regulations. Complying with designated standards for design, durability, energy efficiency, and more, manufactured homes boast resilience comparable to site-built counterparts. Their adherence to local and state building codes ensures durability and safety, even in adverse weather conditions. And with CLMH’s partnership with ZSW Inc we make sure everything meets the needed standards.


Myth #3: Manufactured Homes Are Less Energy Efficient Than Bricks-and-Mortar Homes:

Far from being energy inefficient, manufactured homes can be optimized for sustainability and cost-effectiveness. HUD mandates energy-efficient standards for these homes, promoting long-term savings on construction and operational expenses. Collaborations with programs like ENERGY STAR facilitate the integration of innovative technologies such as smart thermostats and low-E windows, enhancing energy conservation and comfort levels for homeowners.

Myth #4: Manufactured Homes Are Expensive:

While pricing may vary based on customization, manufactured homes typically offer substantial cost savings compared to site-built alternatives. The streamlined construction process and reduced waste contribute to lower overall expenses. Additionally, the ability to customize according to individual requirements ensures that buyers can find a suitable option within their budget.

Myth #5: Manufactured Homes Depreciate In Value:

Contrary to misconceptions, the appreciation or depreciation of manufactured homes mirrors that of traditional housing. Factors such as location, upkeep, and market conditions influence their market value. Well-maintained homes in desirable neighborhoods can appreciate comparably to site-built residences.
