Prefabricated homes, factory-built houses, modular homes… the vocabulary surrounding this type of construction is very broad and increasing all the time due to the ever greater role they are playing in the real estate market. One of the great advantages of buying a prefab is the price, which is usually significantly lower than traditional buildings and doesn’t have the risk of cost overruns. But how much does a prefab housing prices?
There is no single answer. The price is relative, since it depends on materials, design and location, among other things. In a prefabricated house, just as in a traditional one, the most visible parts are the materials used and the finishes. What will set the price apart is the quality of the construction, which does not have to have a direct correlation with the system used. Some people have the idea that modules or prefab houses are cheaper than traditional ones, but that's not necessarily the case.
So they're not cheaper?
Just like traditional constructions and, generally speaking, any type of good, you can either spend thousands or millions depending on what you want, since you can customise the house to your taste and add all the extras you want.
Regardless of the way they’re built, the price of a house depends on the quality and the finishes. One of the advantages of industrialised construction is how long it takes, whereas traditional building methods are completely different, since, with prefabricated buildings, by standardising the processes and manufacturing the parts in a controlled environment where there are far fewer variables, you can achieve much shorter construction periods than normal, with the consequent savings in indirect costs.
For example, the firm estimates the price of a basic and functional prefab home at around 1,000 euro per square metre (93 euro per square foot) and warn that excessively cheap prices lower than this are normally due to semi-finished products (not including the costs of foundations, transport, etc.) and low quality.
We've compiled a selection of several models of manufactured homes from different companies, built using various materials and in a range of sizes to help you decide what prefab home to buy.
