Manufactured Homes/HUD Certifications

What is a Manufactured Home?

Often confused with mobile homes, manufactured homes are prefabricated dwellings built in factories according to strict federal standards set by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). These homes are then transported to their permanent locations and secured on foundations.

Here’s what sets them apart from traditional site-built homes:

  • Construction: Built-in sections in a controlled factory environment, ensuring consistent quality and faster construction times.
  • Affordability: Generally more cost-effective than site-built homes due to efficient production methods and lower material costs.
  • Variety: Wide range of styles, sizes, and floorplans to suit your needs and preferences.
  • Mobility: While not designed for frequent relocation, manufactured homes can be transported once for permanent placement.


  • Manufactured homes built after June 15, 1976 are required to have a HUD label. This signifies they meet federal standards for safety, quality, and durability.
  • Mobile homes are different. Built before 1976, they may not adhere to current safety regulations and have lower resale value.

Quality You Can Trust with HUD Certifications

Looking for an affordable, energy-efficient, and stylish home option? Look no further than manufactured homes! But how do you know you’re getting a well-built and safe dwelling? That’s where HUD certifications come in.

HUD (Department of Housing and Urban Development) sets the gold standard for manufactured home construction and safety. Every manufactured home built after June 15th, 1976 must display a red HUD label, signifying it meets strict federal standards in areas like:

  • Structural integrity: withstands wind, snow, and seismic activity.
  • Plumbing and electrical systems: safe and up to code.
  • Fire safety: materials and construction minimize fire risk.
  • Energy efficiency: built to keep you comfortable and save you money on utilities.

Buying a HUD-certified manufactured home means:

  • Peace of mind: knowing your home is built to last and protect you.
  • Resale value: easier financing and higher potential resale value compared to non-certified homes.
  • Variety and affordability: diverse styles and floorplans to fit your needs and budget.
