What’s the difference between a manufactured home, a mobile home, and a modular home?
A manufactured home is a home constructed inside a factory according to strict code that must be adhered to per the National Manufactured Housing Construction and Safety Standards (HUD code) of July 15, 1976. A manufactured home is transportable in one or more sections, built on a permanent chassis, and is a home with or without a permanent foundation. Manufactured home titles must be transferred to the new owner as part of the transaction. Modular homes are factory-built and brought to the site in one or more sections. Unlike a manufactured home, which must adhere to the national HUD code, the modular home is regulated by the BOCA code. This is the same code site-built homes must adhere to, and they must be placed on a permanent foundation that meets local requirements. A mobile home is a factory-built home that was built before the July 1, 1976 HUD code came into effect. Mobile Home is a legal term for modern manufactured housing.
