Is This Modular/Pre-Fab House a Good Investment?Hello, I'm looking at a house right now that seems to be perfect for my family of 4. It sits on 3.5 acres with a pond, close to major highways, great schools, and lots of space. approx $150,000!The problem (if it is a problem) is that it is a nearly 40 year old modular home. Not a mobile home or trailer, but a pre-fab. I've gotten a lot of mixed ideas about what we should do. Of course the Realtor is saying it's a fine house, but he's got a motive (I'm not anti-Realtor, but let's be honest, he wants to make a sale, not show me 10 more houses). From everything I've read, modular homes can be as well-built as site-built homes, it's just that there is a bad connotation when someone says "modular home". This place has a basement that doesn't leak, and is on a solid concrete slab foundation. Three bed, two bath, large kitchen, sun room.....I mean, it's pretty much what we're looking for, but we're not sure that if we're trying to sell it in the future if people will think the same thing we are thinking.So after all that, here's the meat of the question: If I buy this thing today, what are the chances that I will at least break even 20-30 years from now if and when we decide to sell it? Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
