Home Buying Process
Buying a Manufactured or Custom Modular Home
Beyond just building a house, Regional Home Sales and our choice Brands are committed to making your new home buying experience as enjoyable and stress free as possible. Buying a manufactured home doesn't have to be complicated! The following manufactured and modular home buying guide is designed to help you understand the home buying process for manufactured and modular homes and the roles of the manufacturing facility and Regional Home Sales have in the purchase of your new home at our Design Center.
Step 1: Selecting the home design that's right for your family
Regional Home Sales offers over 2,000 unique home plans from more than 5 different Manufacturers, ranging from 400 sq. ft. to over 4,000 sq. ft., including ranches, Cape Cod and two-story designs. You can view modular, manufactured and mobile home plans for your region on our website using the "Tour our Homes" Link or or just stop by our local Design Center. The "Tour our Homes" Link will navigate you to floor plans available in the area (city and state) you specify. You can also select some additional amenities, such as bedrooms, bathrooms and square footage to refine your search results.
Step 2: Visit a local Regional Design Center and Tour One of Our Model Homes
There's no better place to create the home of your dreams than at a Regional Home Sales Design Center. What can you expect from US? Truthful, Friendly, knowledgeable and experienced housing consultants ready to make your dream of owning the perfect home a reality.
When you visit our Design Center, you'll discover a multitude of available features that you may not have expected in factory-built housing, including numerous floor covering options, energy saving packages, built-in specialty cabinets, computer/office areas, spa-style bathrooms, fireplaces and custom cabinetry, just to name a few. One of our Consultants will make it their goal to help educate you on all the standard and optional features, and guide you through the selections for your new home.
Once you've made your selections, your sales consultant will be able to provide you with a quote for the home including shipping, foundation, site prep, home setup and any site work necessary to complete your new home.
Step 3: Obtaining financing and ordering your home
From pre-approval through closing, Regional Home Sales has the expertise to guide you through the financing process. They'll be able to provide you with local and national banks, and the credit unions they have experience with and explain the different types of loan programs available.
Once your financing is in place, Regional Home Sales will review your final option and decor selections and proceed with ordering your home.
Step 4: Building and installing your home
When your home is
ordered, production is scheduled. Building the modules for most homes is
usually complete within 60 days of the order date. The modules are then
shipped to the home site for installation. While the Factory is building the
modules for your home, Regional Home Sales will be working with you to
obtain the necessary building permits, preparing your lot for building,
installing the foundation, and planning for utility hookups and other
necessary site work. Local building officials will inspect the project on
site at various stages and issue a certificate of occupancy when everything
is completed. Once approved for occupancy, you're off to closing with your
lender and on to moving in and enjoying your new home.
