Do you fear cost overruns with building a new home?

Modular home being set. You’ve likely heard the horror stories. Maybe it happened to a friend or a relative, or maybe you just heard about it through the grapevine when you mentioned you want to build a new home.

Phrases like cost overruns and change orders are mentioned.  Tales of unfinished homes, where the builder ultimately charged the customer more than what they originally agreed to pay, and the customer could no longer afford to complete the home. Or the customer was able to cover the additional costs, but the total cost of their new home is significantly higher than what they had envisioned.

When deciding to build your new home, it is important to understand the terms of your purchase.

Some builders may give you what appears to be a lower price than their competitors but allow for change orders during construction that steadily increase your price throughout the project.

D&W Homes has been in the modular construction business for over 45 years, which means we have weathered numerous market fluctuations, including the recent lumber price spike in 2021.

We know those fluctuations will happen and prepare for them.

That is why when you purchase your home from D&W Homes, you do so at a guaranteed price.

When you sit down with one of our team members at the model center to quote out a new home, you will receive a purchase agreement that is good for 45 days. That 45 days gives you time to secure the funding for your new home.

Once you order your home, the price will not change, no matter what happens with the market. The price when we place the order is the price of your home. Period.

Sound too good to be true? It’s not.

We want you to live and enjoy your new home just as much as you. Nothing makes us happier than hearing from our customers about how much they love their new home, and how their lives have changed for the better because of their new home.

Guaranteed pricing and years of experience aren’t the only benefits of modular construction with D&W Homes.

First, because there is often confusion, modular homes are not the same as manufactured homes or doublewides. Modular homes are built to the same international building codes as a site-built home. They aren’t titled like a doublewide. They are not on a frame. Modular homes are placed on a permanent foundation, whether it be a crawl space or basement.

Modular homes are a “stick-built” home. Portions of them are just built off-site.

This means, unlike with a site-built home, the materials in your home are not exposed to the elements during different stages of the build. Instead, it is constructed inside a temperature-controlled facility with strict quality standards.

You aren’t limited to just the 200+ floor plans we carry. Not only can you make changes to an existing plan to fit your needs, but we can also build completely custom plans. Draw up the floorplan you want and bring it to a model center. One of our team members can determine if it’s something one of our manufacturers can build and get you a quote.

Those are just a few benefits of modular construction. Stop by one of our model centers to tour our homes and learn more about how you can start the process of building your dream home.
