Q: Mobile Homes or Manufactured Homes or Modular Homes, What's the Difference?
A: Both manufactured and modular homes look like any other conventionally built home in appearance and both are built to codes that ensure a safe and sound investment. Here are the key differences.
- Manufactured Homes are built as either a single section home or a multi-section home, depending on the floor plan. They are constructed and delivered on a permanent chassis, so a permanent foundation is not necessary. Because of their efficient, high-quality construction, these homes provide the best value in home buying. Manufactured homes conform to Housing and Urban Development (HUD) codes. During your search, you’ll often find them referred to as “HUDs.” Prior to the Federal Manufactured Home Construction Safety Standards, manufactured homes were sometimes called ‘mobile homes’ or ‘trailer homes.’ The HUD code regulates the design, construction, structural durability, transportability, fire resistance and energy efficiency of a home. It also prescribes performance standards for the mechanical, plumbing and electrical standards.
- Modular Homes, while built in the factory and transported in sections, are virtually indistinguishable from a site-built home, though they tend to be better constructed, take less time to build and are more energy-efficient. They are placed on a foundation and are subject to the same codes as any other site-built home, including all local, state and regional building regulations.
While manufactured homes are one-story designs, a modular home can be of any size. After your home is built, it will be delivered to location, complete with appliances and all other components that make a home ready for you to occupy. Because of the efficiencies gained by simultaneous site work and construction and because we build under ideal, controlled conditions, the time between purchase and closing is dramatically reduced. Your home will be completed sooner and built better.
Both manufactured and modular homes are inspected frequently at the assembly plant during each phase of construction. In-plant inspectors as well as independent agencies inspect your home on behalf of federal, state and local governments for code compliance. Evidence of this inspection is normally the application of a federal, state or inspection agency label of approval.

A: Sonrise has many lending options to provide to a new home buyer. Your agent will be able to answer any questions you may have about investing in a mobile home.
Q: Is Insurance available for all mobile homes? Is it required?
A: Yes! There are a number of companies available that will insure a mobile home in the State of Florida. In order to obtain homeowners insurance, in some cases it may be necessary to bring the home up to current Florida code; a process which we offer to perform through our sister company, Storm Ready Services. Sonrise highly recommends that you protect your investment with homeowners insurance even if your home isn’t financed, but only requires insurance if you have financed the home through a lender.
Q: Is Citizens Property and Casualty my only choice for homeowners insurance?
A: No, there are other companies that will cover a mobile home but in order to receive the lowest rates available, a homeowner must bring the home up to 15c code.Your agent will be able to answer any questions you may have about insuring your mobile home.
Q: Does Sonrise inspect all mobile homes before they are listed?
A: Yes! All mobile homes have been inspected at the time of original installation. Sonrise performs a full inspection underneath the mobile home, at it’s foundation, to the roof, and everything in between. Your agent will be able to answer any questions you may have about inspecting your mobile home.
