Modcoach Note: This is my last mention of this topic as it no longer is a matter of modular vs site built but rather neighbors not wanting anything to happen to the inflated estimate of their property values.
NBC2 News in Cape Coral, FL just released a very nice report trying to explain the facts of modular housing to the residents that live near this new home.
As usual, it appears that money is the problem when the TV reporter interviewed a Realtor about the impact this custom modular home will have on the neighboring homeowners. This Realtor couldn't care less about a modular home moving into that community, he is more likely to only be concerned about the small hit his commission will take maybe 10 years from now when and if he is lucky enough to list a home in this development.
If this home had more than a 3/12 roof pitch, many of the residents would never have known that a modular home was in their neighborhood. That roof pitch is typical of manufactured homes but every house with that roof pitch is not a manufactured home. End of story.
This video gives us a tour through the interior of this controversial new modular home and to tell the truth, it has a great looking kitchen and other features. Enjoy the video.
