Modular Home Pricing
There is no simple answer when it comes to giving a price for a modular home. There are so many variables to take into consideration. These variables include: the builder package; location of the home; set costs; delivery fees, floor plan size and the options and upgrades you select. In addition to these items, site built and supplied items will also factor into a modular home’s price. If you want a deck, garage, breezeway between the home and your garage or a custom Micky Mouse bath tub, these will all influence the price of your prefab house.

How Much Does a Modular Home Cost?
The average cost for a modular home will depend on the cost of the modular home and the site work involved in finishing the home. The site work costs will be influenced by labor costs, site development and preparation and code requirements. The average cost for modular home in Indiana will be much less than in states requiring sprinkler systems of other IBC code compliance. Western states have additional requirements for foundations to meet seismic codes. Homes built in coastal areas require windows to withstand hurricane force winds.
