Manufactured homes generally cost less than other types of homes.
The method of construction is the reason for the lower cost.
Manufacturers construct homes on an assembly line under a federal
building code, known as the “Housing and Urban Development
–Code,” or “HUD-Code.” The HUD-code provides uniformity that
allows builders to use assembly line construction, which then
lowers the cost of building a home.
