What is a Manufactured Home? Why Should You Buy a Manufactured Home?

When you buy a manufactured home from Palm Harbor Homes, you can rest assured that you are getting the best quality and value available. If you’re not sure what to build on your lot, consider everything you get when you buy a manufactured home.

What is a Manufactured Home?

A manufactured home is one built entirely off-site in a controlled building environment under U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) regulations. The home is delivered in one, two or three sections to the homesite where it is installed on a foundation.

Do not confuse manufactured homes with mobile homes. Manufactured homes can be taken apart and relocated, yet they sit upon a foundation and provide the stable home environment you want to build on your lot.

HUD requirements are stringent, and when you buy a manufactured home from Palm Harbor Homes, you can rest assured that all HUD requirements are met and often exceeded. Some of these include:

  • High quality design and construction, above average durability and strength, fire resistance, energy efficiency, and transportability.

  • Able to pass rigorous inspections from third party
  • Thirty-five years of industry experience and customer satisfaction in building beautiful, strong homes for our customers and their families.

Why Should You Buy a Manufactured Home?

  • Financing options:  Manufactured homes can be purchased using home only or traditional Land/Home mortgage options .
