What is the difference between a manufactured home, a modular home and a mobile home?

0

A manufactured home is a house constructed in a factory according to the National Manufactured Housing Construction and Safety Standards (HUD) code, of July 1, 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. A modular home is a factory-built home and brought to the site in one or more sections. Unlike a manufactured home, which must adhere to the national HUD code, a modular home is regulated by state construction codes. A mobile home is a factory-constructed home that was built before the July 1, 1976 HUD code came into effect. The word mobile home is considered an obsolete term when used in reference to today’s manufactured homes.
