Easy Transition: Move-In Ready Homes

Palm-Harbor-Homes-Move-in-ready-homesEasy Transition: Move-In Ready Homes

Moving is almost always stressful, but move-in ready homes make the transition from one place to another easier.  Manufactured homes and modular homes make it easy to own the home of your dreams, customized to meet your specifications, often built on your own lot. Perhaps the best thing about them, though, is that they are new, move-in ready homes, clean and fresh, and their tight construction keeps out many bothersome allergens.

If you’re moving, of course, you probably already know the things you need to do to prepare. Getting rid of anything you don’t want to take with you is a good idea.  Of course you’ll want to set up your utilities ahead of time, so that your new home will be ready for you. Modular homes are an extremely convenient way to buy a new home, because once you’ve chosen your floor plan and design options, it will only be a matter of weeks before your new home is finished and ready to move in! Homes that are ready when you are make it easy to move, in many ways.

    • Move-in ready homes mean less work for you. A Coldwell Banker study reveals that 87 percent of first-time home buyers do not have to put in a lot of work before they move into their homes. Your new modular or manufactured home won’t require anything from you, except to move your furniture and belongings into it! Because it’s all brand new, you won’t face problems such as leaky pipes, worn out carpets, broken windows, or damaged roofs.


    • Modular homes and manufactured homes use up-to-date construction techniques. Because the construction process is primarily done in a factory, companies like Palm Harbor Homes have the time to perfect their techniques. Palm Harbor even uses green building practices in order to provide ready to move in homes that leave a smaller carbon footprint and are economical in the long run, with lower utility bills than traditional homes.


    • Clean construction techniques create move-in ready homes with fewer allergens. Modular homes are constructed in a factory environment, without exposure to the elements, and are assembled quickly, so that no contaminants like mold or mildew have time to form on the construction materials. Unlike traditional new construction, where the materials are stored in the elements for weeks and months and often covered in builder’s dust, these move-in-ready homes are delivered to your lot clean and tight. Because of our tight, secure construction, less heated and cooled air escapes and much fewer allergens get inside.
