California Home Costs Still Going Up. Manufactured Homes Offer a Quality Lower-Cost Alternative

Prices have been rising on just about everything lately, and sadly California home prices are no exception. The median home price is now more than $800,000 – that’s about $100,000 more than it was last year, according to the California Association of Realtors.

This puts the dream of a new home out of reach for many buyers, including young couples hoping to lay down roots with a mortgage instead of rent, and those moving here from other states after selling their homes at a much lower price.

Thankfully, another option is available – one that delivers high-quality, brand-new homes with all the modern amenities, as well as floor plans with expansive square footage, at a more affordable cost.

Isn’t it time you considered a manufactured home? If not, why not?

Concerned about quality? Manufactured homes are built to exacting standards. They are assembled with the same materials as many site-built homes, but HUD Code regulations also require them to satisfy quality standards in strength and durability, energy efficiency, heating, plumbing, air-conditioning, thermal systems and electrical systems. An inspection process at every step during construction verifies that each home built meets these criteria.

And with your purchase you’ll receive the same warranty assurances that buyers would find with site-built homes: a 1-5 year guarantee on overall quality and workmanship, as well as major components such as heating and cooling systems.

Another advantage is in supply. Despite the $800K+ price tag, California stick-built homes don’t stay on the market long. That can result in people rushing into a purchase they might regret later. But that type of pressure is not a factor when you shop at Ma Williams, which represents some of the largest and most respected manufactured home providers in the business. Take your time – review a wide range of models, designs and floor plans before making a decision – you are sure to find the right home that fits your family’s lifestyle.
