If you’re looking for a new home in Morgantown, Fairmont, Bridgeport, Grafton, or surrounding areas in North Central West Virginia, you know that the search can be a difficult one. With the housing market saturated with townhouses and half-million dollar mansions, it’s tough to find an affordable home in good condition with the right amenities. Many people resign themselves to “fixer-uppers” or compromise quality in order to meet their budget—or worse yet, compromise their budget by buying more house than they can afford!
The good news is that you CAN get what you really want in a new home…by building a new modular home! If you’ve never considered building instead of buying, here are 5 reasons to give building a new modular home some serious thought:
Greener / Energy Efficient: Older houses are often leaky and may times not built to modern code. A new construction will be built tighter and more energy efficient. Modular construction is one of the most energy efficient ways to build because of the way modular construction works. Sections of your home are built inside a large climate-controlled facility, reducing the time your building materials are exposed to the elements. It also reduces construction waste, and makes or a tighter home. Also with new construction comes new appliances—be sure to look for Energy Star appliances to save you money while you he to save the environment!
New Technology: When you build new, you don’t have to spend extra money updating all the old technology in the house. You’ll have a new HVAC system, appliances, wiring and cable run through the house, garage door openers, and security systems.
Customized Floorplans: With an existing house, what you see is what you get. If you want to change something in the layout, it can get pretty expensive (and messy!). When you build a new modular home, you can customize the floorpan to fit your needs and tastes. Want a large kitchen? No problem. Second-story bedrooms with gables? We have you covered. Large family room for entertaining? We can do that too.
Time to Move In: Most people think that building a home will take a year or more. At Paradise Homes, we can have you in your new home as soon as 3 months after your finalize your design. We can do this because our teams can prepare your site while the house is being built at the manufacturer, essentially cutting construction time nearly in half!
Location, Location, Location: When you buy an existing house, you’re stuck where that house is sitting. Many people find a great house in a not-so-great location, or vice versa. When you build with Paradise Homes, you can choose the location of your property you buy, and then put the house you want on that perfect piece of land!
Warrantee: Odds are that an existing house you purchase will not come with a manufacturer’s warrantee. Most Paradise Homes come complete with a ten-year structural warranty. This provides excellent protection for your new home and provides peace of mind for you. The warranty is also transferable to the new owner if you decide to sell your home during the coverage period.
