Finding what you were looking for….nope not them….next….nope not them…..next
I believe most people essentially decide what they want to hear and then go out looking for the guy who will them them that. I stumbled across another modular builders web site, and I am always curious so I read through some of it. Now, I should say, I believe in what we do here and how we do it, but I like to challenge my own thinking some times. There have been more then a few times that customers have come through my door and been annoyed but my message of be careful!! look out for!! and, you need to know there are other real cost information. These people have already convinced themselves they were are out to stick it to them and they just want someone to say that to them. So here is the good news, I found them for you.
This is an excerpt from their website, I do not think they will mind me promoting their business for them. “. Get some ideas and then get prices. We’ll then be happy to quote any plan you’re interested in at factory direct costing. You’ll then see the huge difference. A special note…. Be careful of anyone who is offering to “do it all” for you and won’t let you see the breakdown. When someone offers to package anything, or everything (house, set, excavation, finishing, etc) they’re hiding from you what each item has been marked up. You’ll be lured with “the ease of it all” and “just move in”, but the ease of it all comes with a huge price that you will be paying for over the next thirty years”. This is exactly what some people want to hear.
Now they can validate this with super low prices that exclude everything you don’t know to ask about and look like they are true to their word when compared to a builder who does the entire project. However, I have heard hundreds of horror stories from the families who did this over the years and came up short on dollars and some never even got the house finished before they went bankrupt. The appearance of a deal is not always a deal.
This is exactly the type of sales that has repressed the modular homes industry from being the known quality built homes they should be known as. Everyone one who has ever held a hammer feels they can be a builder, but trust me even after 25 years, it is just not that easy.
You really have to read the whole thing it is very compelling, “many of their projects are run by wives while the husband is at work”, it is that easy????
I accept that I am not always right and I believe there is more than one way to do anything so I am not saying this is wrong, but I would not want to drive a car if the manufacture just shipped me the parts and left me to put it together, and I think a house is a much bigger investment so I know this would not be for me
