greedy real estate agents and developers.
Call me when you want to list your house. We can list it $25-$50 sqft cheaper than the comps so you're not greedy

How are developers the problem if people are paying the price?


98% of TD has peej mentality when it comes to real estate.

To the OP. Ask builder who frames on site and uses stick frame roofing how their wall and roof framing compares structurally to modular/truss built. You'll be surprised.

re: Developer Wants to Sell Modular Homes In Mid City
Is it a mobile home, a modular home, or a manufactured home. Some of them are really nice.

It depends on what you want to call Mid City. The Capital Heights area is solid. It's the buffer area between Government and Florida that is hit or miss with regards to safety.

Like I said, those side streets off Capital Heights have houses that look just like those modular homes. Actually, I think some similar homes like these have already been built in that area, IIRC.


Nothing that's been built in Capital Heights has been modular homes.

173 bucks a square foot, and with all the maintenance issues of the 50s.

Hard to insulate, settling issues, and a haven for spiders stray cats, etc.

How can you go wrong????

The land value is what drives these prices in Mid City, not the actual home construction.

re: Developer Wants to Sell Modular Homes In Mid City
No doubt, the saying about location, location, location is true.

You'd like to think developers would build a more substantial home for that reason.

Cars in Prarieville get broken into all the time. I don't see people trashing it. So what?

Now you're comparing an entire city to one area of BR? Come on.

Exactly right. One area of BR is as susceptible to car break ins as the whole city of PVille.

Not for the price they are asking. But modular construction has come a long way in the past five years.

Schedule, price, quality... modular homes have a lot to offer over traditional construction. I'm surprised they aren't more popular.

I don't know how flexible they are with footprints though, I al not sure you can get a real custom shape with little kick offs and nooks.

My house came all in one piece. They sure don't make them like they used to.

I do not see vinyl siding or wheels....

A modular house is not a mobile home. This looks like a bland, cheaper version of the tract homes built in the 1940s.

Years ago many of the Craftsman bungalow style homes were sold in kits or partially built. Difference is, those homes didn't have cheesy vinyl/metal windows and fake wood floors like these probably will.


The old Sears homes are actually pretty sought after these days. You used to be able to order a whole house in a catalogue. They'd deliver the parts to your lot and you could put it together like a kit car.
