When I decided it was time to buy a house I knew exactly what I was going to want. Sadly, I couldn’t find a house on the market that would fulfill my wants. That is, until I looked at modular homes in North Carolina. The minute I laid on eyes on one of them, I fell in love and had to have it.
The modular homes are often overlooked by many people. They don’t feel that it is a real house or that they can find the right place to put it. I found that buying a modular home was a lot easier than I ever anticipated. I also got the house of my dreams for a lot less money than I’d planned on spending. I had the opportunity to choose the floor plan that I would want. Right away this was a huge selling point for me. Yes, it’s nice to walk into an existing home and envision what you can do with it when you move it. It’s something completely different when you walk into a company and look at floor plans and design a home to be exactly what you’ve dreamed of. I found that it was cheaper to buy a piece of land in an area that I loved and have my modular home put up there. Between realtor’s fees and expenses, my husband and I managed to save well over $50,000. That is money that could be used elsewhere and we didn’t get less of a home because we spent less. We actually got more of a home by spending less money and doing our research. Instead of buying a 2 bedroom home that we liked, we bought a 4 bedroom home that we loved. We can completely envision raising our family in this home for many years to come. For more information you may visit DRALiving.com.
