There are several types of homes:
1. Site built (pretty self explanatory)
2. Modular - custom built and carried by a trailer to your prepared foundation and a crane is used to off load it.
3. Single wide, double wide, manufactured, - it is the trailer. It is brought to your site on it's own wheels and the wheels are removed.
As a mortgage broker for the past 20 years I can tell you that for resale and better banking (mortgage terms) the site built is the best followed by the modular and the hardest is the manufactured.
When asked for advise I always tell my borrowers to go with a site built home if they can.
Another rule of thumb I use is that you can always add on to the house but you can't add dirt to your property.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
