Michigan Manufactured Housing Association Shows Homebuyers How to Save Without Sacrificing Style

OKEMOS, MI--(Marketwire - August 13, 2008) - Today's system-built homes allow homebuyers to select modern and stylish features for less than the cost of site-built homes.

From a basic, single-section home to a more elaborate and spacious multi-section home, many of the same building options as those of site-built homes are offered for system-built homes. Nearly every interior feature in a system-built home can be customized to fit you and your family's needs, including equipped kitchens with name-brand appliances, walk-in closets, whirlpool tubs and vaulted or tray ceilings.

Homebuyers can opt for oak cabinets, plush carpeting, stone fireplaces, skylights and "smart home" electronic packages... providing their new homes with additional comfort and style. The options are limitless.

Over the years, advances in construction and technology have improved home building; and the system-built housing industry has benefited. System-built homes can be designed to fit in almost any neighborhood. New technologies in the factory and transportation process have allowed manufacturers to build two-story models that have become a popular choice with homebuyers.

Exterior options have also increased with the availability of vinyl and wood siding, stone accents and more, providing a more modernized look for today's system-built home. No matter what your style, approach or budget, you will be able to find the perfect home to fit your needs and wants.

In addition to having all the characteristics of site-built homes, system-built homes cost 10 to 35 percent less per square foot to build. With all the many options available including bay windows, pitched roofs, permanent foundations and site-built garages, homebuyers can have a comfortable and stylish system-built home customized to fit their individual needs. These endless choices make system-built housing a competitive and comparable choice for anyone considering the purchase of a new home.

A growing number of builders offer homebuyers more control over choosing the right floor plan and interior to fit their needs. Visit www.michhome.org to search for manufacturers and the different floor plans and features they offer.
