Modular Homes Under $200,000

For homes in the range of $100,000 to $200,000, the field opens up and every style of building becomes available. Remember that this is the budget for only the manufacturing of the home and does not include the cost of land or any other costs required to build the home.

Some houses, like this one from Blu Homes, are priced with the cost of buttoning up and finish work included since all on-site work can be done by the manufacturer. This design comes in 1, 2, or 3 bedroom layouts for a price of $170,000.

At the lower end, say $120,000, every home you consider should be above 2,000sq ft. As with any budget, you will get more square footage with Ranch or Cape Cod style homes, but at this price point a family of five should have enough space to be comfortable. Some standard plans will start to have options to build in a garage. You can even start to consider using some of your budget to finish the basement or attic space to add more livable space to your home.

If your budget is closer to the $200,000 mark, you should be expecting around 3,000sq ft. to work with. Your options now extend to building modern steel-frame houses, high efficiency housing and even completely custom houses. With specialty houses like these, you’re often sacrificing total square footage for the luxury amenities of a modern home.
