Modular homes are allowed to be built anywhere but sometimes a site developer tries to force a rather simple modular home design into an area that clearly doesn't warrant it.
That is what is happening in a neighborhood in Cape Coral, FL where a Skyline modular home of modest design is being built on a lot next to homes that obviously are priced many times higher. The neighbors are upset that property values will drop throughout the community as more of these type of modular homes are built.
This is absolutely no reflection on modular housing but it is a bad reflection on the developer that has chosen to put modest, box type modular homes into an area that is almost exclusively high end construction.
One problem that should be noted is that building homes like the ones already in the development has all but dried up since the housing recession and only a more modest home will have any chance of being built today.
Watch the video and you decide if the neighbors are upset about a modular home being built in their neighborhood or if they should be angry at the builder.
