How affordable are manufactured homes compared to site-built homes?
Compared to site-built (traditional stick-frame) homes, manufactured homes are about half the cost per square foot. In 1998 the average sales price of a manufactured home in the U.S. was $52,300. The average cost per square foot was $30.21. By comparison the average cost of a single-family site-built home was $136,425 excluding land costs and the cost per square foot (excluding land) was $62.29.
The efficiencies of building homes in factories rather than on-site allow manufactured homes to match or beat the quality of site-built homes for a fraction of the cost.
