Affordable Manufactured Housing
Whether it's a manufactured home on an acre of ground in the county
or your parents living on your property in a second but separate home, or a
modular home nestled among older site built homes in the city; all are
affordable energy efficient homes that are designed and engineered for decades to come.
The Land/Home Package
The "Land/Home Package" typically refers to manufactured homes
on permanent foundations placed on private property. These projects are afforded excellent terms for financing and will appreciate in value (like site-built homes) primarily because they are permanently affixed to the property. The homes are built to a pre-emptive HUD code
in a controlled environment and inspected daily; this code also sets
performance standards for the heating, plumbing, air conditioning, thermal and
electrical systems. Therefore, all city or county building departments within
the state have little or nothing to say as to how the homes are built which
saves a lot of time, money and hassle.
Here's how it works:
If there is a loan the cost for the three main components need to be accounted for prior to the appraisal. They are 1) home and all factory options, 2) the property costs or balances owed, if any, 3) all site costs including county or city development fees and any and all requirements per governing agencies.
After the property is found and the appraisal complete, with all costs accounted for, the home may be built and the project will be nearing completion with only the site work to be finished. Once completed you will enjoy your custom
home located on a lot of your choice and financed through any
source you choose (FHA, CAL-VET, VA, CONVENTIONAL).
The Backyard Home/2nd Unit
With the high prices on homes in Southern California, there is
growing demand for homes going in as second units on one property. Many property
owners are adding a 2nd home for their children, parents, or as a rental unit.
The need for these kinds of homes are prevalent in rural as well as urban areas
like Los Angeles and San Diego where the demand for affordable housing is even
more of an issue.
As of July 1, 2003 important "Second Unit Legislation" was put into
effect in Assembly Bill 1866, amending two sections of Government Code to
encourage the creation of second unit. This Assembly Bill encourages local
building departments to be flexible with residents interested in placing a
second-unit on their property. According to this Bill, the "legislature finds
and declares that second units are a valuable form of housing in California.
Second units provide housing for family members, students, the elderly, in home
health care providers, the disabled, and others, at below the market prices
within existing neighborhoods. The Bill goes on to state, "an application
(within the building department) should not be subject to excessively
burdensome conditions of approval, should not be subject to a public hearing or
public comment and should not be subject to any discretionary decision-making
Urban "Lot-In-Fills" are for those of you who prefer the city life.
Today’s manufactured or modular homes have experienced a major evolution in
types and quality of homes being offered. Technological advances are allowing
manufactured or modular homes to offers a wide variety of architectural styles
and exterior finishes that will suit most any buyer's needs, all the while
allowing the homes to blend in seamlessly into most any neighborhood. Two story
and single-family attached homes (duplexes) are but two of the new styles being generated by factory-built innovation. As a result these kinds of homes are offering real housing options for the suburban and urban buyers alike.
With all the technological and factory-built advances
that have surely occurred over the years perhaps the most significant aspect of
lot-in-fills may be economic in nature. When building a single family
residence, built one at a time, there are only two ways to do it. One is the custom home builder, who builds on site, stick by stick, and the other is a custom manufactured or modular home built in a factory and transported to the site. In the end you will have a very nice home no matter which way you choose to do it; however, the costs associated with both are quite different. It is conservatively estimated that you will save between 10
to 35 percent per square foot as compared to site built homes depending on location.
