Best Modular Homes Under $50,000

Best Modular Homes Under $50,000

We have selected the five best modular homes you can purchase for under $50,000. Certainly, a budget of fifty grand is quite tight to acquire a brand new house, though prefabrication enables a more affordable construction process. 

Since Modular homes are constructed off-site some companies have managed to design a model within this price by focusing in:

  • Choosing their resources smartly 
  • Strictly reducing the square feet
  • Creating functional but spacious interiors. 
  • Eliminating amenities such as bathroom and kitchen.

While prefabricated, modular homes are high quality constructions that are treated just like any site-built home, being required to be placed on permanent foundations and stick to strict regulations. The cost of these requirements is subject to each particular case and location, therefore the base price associated with each of the houses below reflects only the manufacturing cost.
