The Benefits of Owning Mobile Home

No matter what you call this style of home, there are countless benefits to designing and owning a manufactured or mobile home.

In Tyler, Texas, Pratt Modular Homes has built thousands of homes: mobile home, trailer house, double wide, single wide, manufactured, tiny home…we’ve built them all!

As a family-owned business building homes since 1996, we know how important your home is, no matter what it’s called. And we know the countless benefits of owning one of these houses.


Especially for new homeowners, this type of home is much more affordable. For those going back and forth between renting and owning, a modular, trailer, or manufactured home is the perfect option. Chances are, your monthly payments will be cheaper than renting, with the added benefit that you get to own and design your own space! An added benefit is that it gives you the opportunity to build credit.

If you don’t have to put all your money into building your home, you can afford more or better property. Put the money you save into a nice piece of real estate, and have it all.


Control over your design and building helps you save money. Choosing a modular home gives you considerably more control over the specifics, meaning you can cut costs.

Additionally, manufactured homes are factory-built, which leaves less room for error on all fronts. In building a home, mistakes cost money. By eliminating the mistakes, you help cut down on the cost!

Modular, trailer, and manufactured homes are must faster to construct than traditionally constructed houses. Rather than losing time and money on the building process, you save both when you choose this type of house.

Savings also come in the form of being more environmentally friendly. Using utilities and materials that are more efficient, you can save a lot of money on utility bills. Insulation and top of the line HVAC systems help save money, and help the environment.

Design and Amenities:

Is it your fantasy to design your dream home? With this type of housing, you can! The sky is basically the limit when it comes to design. Whether you want to live in a tiny home, a cabin-style home, a ranch-style, or so many more, the option is yours. Just because it isn’t a traditionally built home, doesn’t mean you have to compromise. Modular homes have all the beautiful features custom homes have porches/decks, lawns/landscaping, signature flooring, granite countertop options, and all the latest appliances.
