How CrossMod™ Homes are Making Homeownership More Attainable 

The dream of homeownership is now more achievable than ever, thanks to the advent of CrossMod homes. This new classification of manufactured homes is not only affordable but also attractive and faster to build, making it an excellent option for anyone looking to become a homeowner. 

If you read our last blog on CrossMod homes, you learned that these homes are high quality factory-built products with traditional home financing options through Freddie Mac® and Fannie Mae®.  

CrossMod homes being eligible for traditional financing is one of the most significant things to know about these homes. As a result, more people may be able to secure a mortgage for their new home, including those who may struggle with high interest rates of manufactured housing financing OR high home prices of site-built homes. This has opened up new opportunities for millennials and Gen Zers who are tired of renting but don’t have the resources to buy a traditional home. 

New parents looking to expand their living space can also benefit from CrossMod homes. These homes can come with amenities such as a backyard and a private garage, making them an excellent option for growing families. Moreover, established homeowners who are looking to transition to a new home can do so without worrying about the skyrocketing prices of site-built homes. 

Even subdivision developers can benefit from CrossMod homes. Traditional financing and appearance lend these homes to a return on investment more in line with site-built housing over traditional manufactured housing. This can make CrossMod homes an attractive option for developers looking to put a new product on the market. 

At Champion Homes, we’re passionate about building some of the best CrossMod homes. Our homes are designed to meet the needs of modern homeowners while still being affordable and easy to finance. Contact us today to learn more about how you can become a homeowner with a CrossMod home.

Building Trees for a Better Tomorrow 

Champion® Homes has always been a company that’s dedicated to creating high-quality homes, but we’ve never stopped at just the physical structure. We’re passionate about being environmentally friendly, which is why we partnered with the Arbor Day Foundation to plant a tree for every tree we use in our building process. And we’re proud to say that we exceeded our target of 600,000 trees planted!  

Since the inception of our partnership, we’ve completed 23 projects and restored 1,559 acres of land. But it’s not just the land that we’re helping – we’ve avoided runoff of over 51 million gallons of water, removed 1,916 tons of air pollutants, and sequestered 491,105 metric tons of CO2. These are impressive numbers, but what we’re most proud of is the fact that we’re making a real difference in the environment. 

Our commitment to environmental sustainability doesn’t stop there. We’ve implemented a variety of environmentally-friendly practices in our operations, from using recycled materials to reducing our energy consumption. We believe that every little bit counts when it comes to protecting the planet, and we’re doing our part to make a difference.

What is a CrossMod™ Home?

The affordable housing shortage has increased demand and driven up home prices and rental rates. Manufactured homes provide a solution as they cost less and are quicker to build than on-site homes. A new category of manufactured homes, called Crossover Modern Homes (CrossMod), offers a high-end, energy-efficient yet affordable factory-built housing alternative. 

Champion®-designed CrossMod homes combine the best of on-site and off-site built housing, complying with state and local building standards. They offer amenities typically found in site-built homes, such as garages, carports, pitched roofs, and energy-efficient features. 

CrossMod homes (like the one pictured above) have gained popularity in recent years due to the many advantages they offer over conventional manufactured homes.

Here are some additional benefits of CrossMod homes: 

  • Increased property value: Because CrossMod homes are classified as real property and have many features similar to traditional site-built homes, they are expected to appreciate in value at a similar rate. This makes them a wise investment for those looking to build equity over time. 
  • Financing: CrossMods are available for mortgage loan financing with favorable interest rates and 30-year terms through programs like Fannie Mae MH Advantage™ and Freddie Mac CHOICEHome®.   
  • Energy efficiency: CrossMod homes are built using the latest technology and energy-efficient materials, resulting in lower utility bills and a smaller carbon footprint. 
  • Durability: CrossMod homes are built to withstand harsh weather conditions and are designed to last for many years. They are also less susceptible to damage from pests and other environmental hazards. 
  • Affordability: CrossMod homes are more affordable than traditional site-built homes, making them an attractive option for first-time homebuyers and those looking to downsize. 
  • Location flexibility: CrossMod homes can be placed on a variety of different lots, including urban, suburban, and rural settings. This gives homeowners more options when it comes to choosing a location for their home. 

CrossMod homes are a cost-effective and long-lasting option for first-time home buyers and those looking to downsize. With exterior features that resemble traditional site-built homes, they can be placed in almost any community, including those that have had limited factory-built housing in the past. By offering the opportunity to build equity and wealth, they provide an accessible path to homeownership. 

CrossMod homes are classified as real property, affixed to permanent foundations, and have a higher resale value than other types of manufactured homes. They offer cost savings compared to traditional homes, making them an attractive option for homebuyers. CrossMod homes provide manufacturers with a chance to enter new markets and help more Americans achieve homeownership. They are customizable, affordable, and an excellent choice for anyone in the market for a new home. 

Champion Homes: Offsite Construction is the Perfect Solution for Building Homes in Texas 

We had the honor of being featured on Redfin’s Blog, where you can find some of the best homeownership tips and tricks. In this particular blog focused on building, buying and owning a home in Texas, you can learn some great insights. 

Tips for Building Your Dream Home in Texas 

“Offsite construction is an ideal solution for building homes in Texas,” states home builders Champion® Homes. “Constructing houses in a controlled factory environment shields materials and labor from extreme weather conditions. Select materials suitable for the region, such as engineered wood siding, to withstand Texas’ harsh heat and sunlight.”

Here are some additional benefits of building homes through offsite construction, particularly in Texas: 

  • Faster construction time: Offsite construction allows for faster completion times as the building process is not subject to weather delays or other on-site complications. This is particularly important in regions like Texas where weather conditions can be unpredictable and extreme. 
  • Improved quality control: Building homes in a controlled factory environment allows for better quality control as the construction process is standardized and closely monitored. This reduces the likelihood of errors or defects in the final product. 
  • Sustainability: Many offsite construction methods incorporate sustainable practices, such as the use of recycled materials and energy-efficient building techniques. This can result in a more environmentally friendly final product. 

If you’re considering buying a home in Texas, it’s worth exploring the benefits of choosing a manufactured or modular home. Here are some reasons why: 

  • More space for your money: As the saying goes, everything is bigger in Texas. By choosing a factory-built home, you can take advantage of the lower cost-per-square-foot and get more space for your money. This is especially true if you have a lot of land and want a larger home to accommodate your lifestyle. 
  • Design options: Don’t be fooled into thinking that factory-built homes are cookie-cutter designs with no room for personalization. In fact, many of our manufacturing facilities and retailers offer a variety of floor plans and design options to suit your needs and style preferences. You can choose from a range of finishes, fixtures, and features to make your home truly your own. Click here to personalize your own Texas home with a price estimate! 
  • Quality construction: One of the biggest misconceptions about factory-built homes is that they are of lower quality than site-built homes. However, this couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, many manufacturers use advanced construction methods and materials to ensure that their homes are durable, energy-efficient, and built to last. 

Overall, choosing a manufactured or modular home in Texas can be a smart choice for those who want more space, design flexibility, quality construction, and faster move-in times. Ready to find the perfect home for you, near you? Click here to reach out to an independent retailer!
