The following are several items to check for before buying a modular home in Michigan;
Be Familiar with the HUD Code and other Rules
You need to be familiar with all the legalities, planning, building codes and regulations pertaining to modular home construction. You also need to be aware of all the liabilities, especially with regard to working with different subcontractors. Be sure you do a thorough risk assessment before you consider taking on such a huge and stressful role.
Look and Hire a Licensed/ Accredited Modular Home Builder
Before deciding to purchase a modular home, make sure you are working with a Licensed Builder. You must make sure that he is a Certified Energy Star modular home builder. Hiring one would mean for an energy efficient abode.
Create the Modular Home Design Intricately
Be sure to allow enough time initially to consider the best layout and design that works best with your lifestyle and family requirements and make sure these are reflected in any design or layout changes you wish to make to your home. Discuss these in detail with your builder and make sure that you are clear on the additional cost and any extra time delays associated with making these changes.
Stay within the Budget
It’s best to get pre-approved for a loan amount that you know you are comfortable with before you begin shopping for a new home and once you are, stay within your budget.
