OKEMOS, MI--(Marketwire - Feb 26, 2013) - Building a new home can be stressful. The ever changing Michigan weather, material theft, and budgets can make even the most level headed home owner frustrated. System-built homes can relieve much of the frustration of home building by being constructed in a controlled environment and transported to the site and assembled quickly, putting you weeks, sometimes months, ahead of schedule!

System-built homes range in size from 1,000 to 3,000 square feet, and come with a limitless number of options including oak cabinets, plush carpeting, stone fireplaces, skylights and "smart home" electronic packages. These luxuries, typically associated with site-built homes, can be found in system-built homes for less money. They contain standard features which include modern kitchen appliances, and custom options such as wood-burning fireplaces, whirlpool baths and cathedral ceilings. Often times, potential buyers and investors cannot tell the difference between a traditional site-built home, and a system-built home. It truly is not the manufactured home of yesterday.

In today's challenging economy, it is important to get the most for your money, while not sacrificing the safety and comfort in your home. This is no exception when it comes to the purchase of a home. You don't have to downgrade your lifestyle to obtain a more affordable home. By choosing a system-built home, you can own a brand new home for 10 percent to 35 percent less than a site-built home, without sacrificing quality. You'll see that enjoying your dream home and a comfortable lifestyle can be a part of your reality.
