I recently came across an article about modular homes written by a Bill Gassett, a Massachusetts Realtor and was happily reading along about his explaining the benefits of modular homes in the first part of his article entitled “The Benefits of a Modular Home.”
Almost everything he mentioned about quality, lead times and the fact that modular is not manufactured housing hit all the the right points. I was truly thinking we had a knowledgeable ally in him.
|Just Don't Ask Me About Modular Housing|
Then he wrote a section entitled “Disadvantages of Modular Homes.”
OMG! What I had a first considered an ally soon turned into just another uninformed Realtor with little true understanding of what modular can be.
Here are some of the topics he mentions as to why modular housing is mediocre at best and probably a choice he says to avoid when building a new home:
- Lack Of Customization
- More Complicated Loan Process
- Cost of Land
- Land Restrictions
- Perceived Quality Issues
- Issues with Selling the Home
Then he followed up these highlights about modular with this:
Is A Modular Home An Option For You?
If you are the kind of buyer that is looking for the best deal and is up to date on the quality of many modular homes, you may be extremely satisfied with one. If you are a buyer who wants something uniquely yours, something customized or something that will impress the neighborhood, a modular home may not be the right fit.

After reading it, I want every modular home builder and factory serving his areas in MA to write him, call him or visit him and tell him he needs to update his attitude toward Modular Housing in the US.
With all the marketing that builders and factory people have been planning along with the efforts of the MHBA, Realtors like this guy can kill a sale for you simply by giving out this type of information.
