For Builders & Suppliers
Reduced Overhead Cost
Since most of the construction is done by the manufacturer in the factory, the builder is able to concentrate on sales and marketing. Manufacturers offer a wide range of sales and marketing support to the builder.
Better Job and Cost Control
With 80 to 90 percent of the work completed in a factory, fewer laborers and subcontractors are needed.
Sales and Marketing Support
Today's homebuyer wants a custom designed home that fits their individual lifestyle. The manufacturer has professional staff who can design the home to your customer's needs.
Modular homes are built to the same code required for site built homes. Each manufacturer has quality control personnel in the factory monitoring production as well as a separate third party inspector who ensures the quality and compliance of the home. Each manufacturer also employs service people who can help if a problem arises in the field.
Quality and Service
The bulk of the construction is completed in the factory under a controlled environment, so there are no delays due to weather or material shortages. The manufacturer will guarantee the cost of the home after the order is placed, for a reasonable period of time, so that unexpected cost overruns do not occur.
Increased Profit Potential
Reduced construction time, reduced labor and overhead costs and the ability for you to concentrate on sales and customer service all translate into increased profitability for the builder and greater satisfaction for the homebuyer.
Consumer Awareness Program (CAP)
MHBA launched the Consumer Awareness Program (CAP) to better educate potential new home buyers. MHBA manufacturer members voluntarily agree to add $10 per module onto each newly constructed home and we dedicate those funds to marketing the modular home industry. This small increase of revenue provides MHBA with funds to effectively reach thousands of potential new modular homebuyers.
MHBA focuses on educating new homebuyers about the advantages of building a modular home and providing them with access to a vast amount of resources that will showcase MHBA members extensive experience in the industry. Through MHBA, homebuyers will gain access to sample floorplans, be able to find a local builder, and will even be able to request an estimate for their dream home.
CAP participants benefit from having their homes highlighted in the gallery, having their logo placed on the homepage, and receiving the latest marketing materials from CAP!
Removing Barriers and Protecting Your Business
On average, businesses pay between $8,000 and $10,000 per employee per year in hidden costs associated with various rules and regulations. As government agencies become more intrusive and pervasive, this cost will escalate.
At MHBA, we realize it is difficult and time consuming for you to keep track of the numerous bills, regulations, legislation and code changes that may have an impact on your bottom line. Every year, MHBA monitors and reviews thousands of different bills and proposed regulations to determine their potential impact on our industry. We have successfully protected our members’ interests in numerous states on issues ranging from taxation, plan approval and code compliance. MHBA updates and alerts members to pending and enacted legislation and regulations impacting the industry at the federal, state and local levels.
And while we can’t ensure that we will always be successful, we can guarantee that we will fight to protect your business.
MHBA highlights member homes on the website, which receives more than 22,000 visits a month. Members can receive exposure and recognition as well when we post their homes on our social media pages. In 2014 MHBA launched the "Home of the Month," showcase which features homes built and manufactured by MHBA members.
