It's no secret that manufactured homes are becoming an increasingly popular option for homebuyers across the country. So, if you’re considering manufactured homes, you might be wondering how much it’ll cost to get set up. Don't worry, we're here to help you through this confusing process. Here's all you need to know about manufactured home set up costs. 

What is Involved in Setting Up a Manufactured Home? 

When it comes to manufactured home setup, there are several steps involved. The first step is getting the manufactured home to its destination. This includes transportation and delivery costs, as well as preparation of the site. Then, manufactured homes need to be set up by professionals, which may include anchoring and installing a foundation, connecting electricity and water services, as well as finishing touches like decks and porches. 

How Much Does Transportation Cost?

The cost of transportation depends heavily on the distance between your manufactured home's current location and its final destination. For example, local moves of under 50 miles typically start at around $80 - $200 per hour (~$109/hr, on average) whereas long-distance moves can cost $85-$250 per hour (~$120/hr, on average) Nonetheless, most manufactured homes can be transported for less than the cost of a new manufactured home, depending on the distance. 

How Much Does Setting Up a Manufactured Home Cost?

Depending on the scope of the project, setup expenses might range from $1,500 for single wides to $3,000 for double wides and up to $20,000. Ask at least two installation crews to submit quotations so you can make sure the costs and services are comparable. With that said, compared to traditional homes, manufactured homes offer more cost-effective solutions for homebuyers. So, if you’re wondering how much a manufactured home setup costs, you now have a rough idea. 

Any Other Costs to Consider?

In addition to setup costs, there are other home-related expenses you should be aware of. For example, manufactured homes require significant energy efficiency upgrades like insulation and weatherproofing. Additionally, manufactured homes also require permits and inspections from local authorities.

What Should You Do Before Setting Up Your Manufactured Home?

Before setting up your manufactured home, several things need to be taken care of first. First and foremost, manufactured homes must be certified by HUD, the Department of Housing and Urban Development. This ensures that manufactured homes meet all safety standards. Additionally, a manufactured home setup requires a professional who understands the installation process, so make sure you hire a qualified installer. Lastly, manufactured home setups also require permits from local authorities, meaning you'll need to get in contact with your local city officials.
