It isn’t common for modular home manufacturers to help you find land, but some companies choose to offer an additional service and assist their clients in this search. Given that modular homes can’t just be built anywhere, pretty much all modular home companies offer a land feasibility study as part of their service to determine if the selected land is suitable for modular construction. Still, some modular home companies choose to provide further guidance and assist in the lot purchase process as well.
List of modular home companies who help you find land in the U.S.:
|Modular Home Companies||Where can you find land?|
|Dvele||Nationwide except for Alaska and Hawaii|
|Method Homes||Most of West U.S. Region|
|Cutting Edge Homes||California|
|Florida Modular Homes||Florida|
|Blue Homes||Currently only California|
|Austin Modular Homes||Central Texas|
|Carolina Custom Homes of Burlington||Several areas in North Carolina|
|Home By Brill||Iowa|
|Future Homes of Bremerton||Washington|
Despite some of the modular home companies who help you find land offer service nationwide, it is more frequent to receive this service from smaller modular home companies with a smaller service area. This assistance is sometimes an extra service offered by the company but most often a collaboration with a local realtor who is familiar with modular construction. In case the modular home manufacturer you would like to work with doesn’t offer this service, we also equip you with some guidance to ease the land buying process.

How to find land if your modular home company doesn’t offer land finding services in your area
While land finding services are very helpful, most modular home manufacturers cannot offer this service, plus those who offer it, are often constrained to a limited area and may not be able to provide you with it. However, it is still perfectly possible to acquire a suitable lot to build your modular home even without land finding services.
This is what you should know before buying your land:
- Contact your modular home manufacturer first: Ask your modular home manufacturer about any land requirements, especially if you are planning to build a predesigned modular home since predesigned models usually require flat plots with very specific characteristics.
- Look for a real estate agent with modular home knowledge: To ensure a smooth land buying process look for a real state agent who understands the requirements for modular construction. When building modular you don’t only need a lot with beautiful views or proximity to the main services, you need wide road access and relatively flat land to ensure the modules can be delivered and assembled.
- Ask for a feasibility study before acquiring the land: Most modular home companies offer a land feasibility study as part of their building process where they analyze if the land is suitable for modular construction. Ask your modular home manufacturer to provide a feasibility study once you have found the land you would like to purchase. Assessing the suitability of the land before investing in it can avoid unnecessary complications and extra costs.
Despite not being able to offer land finding services, modular home companies are highly aware of the importance of suitable land to build a modular home. Especially modular home companies who offer predesigned models will be careful in offering you all the detail that the land should offer, request them in advance for a smother lot buying process.
