The first and most obvious difference between mobile and manufactured homes is the building process itself. When you build a traditional house, usually it starts with a foundation and is built up over time, whereas mobile homes are built right on the site. This makes it easier to erect the building quickly and get it up and running in time for your moving. It also makes it simpler for you to add on to the design as you want without incurring additional costs.
The second difference that I think is very important is the pricing of the two. When you buy prefabricated homes, you pay considerably less than you would for a mobile manufactured home. In addition to that, you do not have to endure the expense of paying for permits, building inspections, etc. You simply pay for the product and the installation and can walk away from the sale knowing that your investment is secure and will continue to appreciate in value.
The final difference that I will mention in this article involves the quality of construction and materials used in mobile or prefabricated homes. When you buy prefabricated homes, you are getting a well-built, solid product that has been built with high quality material. Mobile manufactured homes are typically made with low quality materials or have low quality conversions. With prefabricated homes, you get a product that is solid built and has a reputation for quality construction. This is a huge advantage that mobile homes have over manufactured homes.
