Have it Made®
When you buy a Clayton Built® home, you can trust that you are buying a quality home that is built to last.
Skilled craftsmen assemble each element of your home in our climate-controlled building facilities.
As your home moves through each phase of construction, it is checked by different team members or outside inspectors who check for quality every step of the way.
This extensive internal inspection process in the building facility makes sure every part of the home meets HUD Code construction requirements.
There are few things more exciting than the day your custom home is delivered.
Your local retailer will help guide you through preparing your land for delivery including making sure your land is level, compacted and crowned for proper drainage.
Then, the foundation will be constructed. Your local retailer will help you determine the proper foundation for your home.
After delivery day, an on-site construction crew will place your home on its foundation, anchor your home with tie downs, connect utilities, test hookups, install appliances, complete touch-ups and make sure your home is ready for move in.
Once your on-site construction crew has finished, you will receive the keys to your custom home!
As you work with a lender to secure financing for your new home, here is some information to help guide you down the road of purchasing your new home.
Before you select a lender, be sure to budget for costs in addition to a mortgage payment. Use the mortgage calculator to help estimate your monthly payment.
You will need to obtain required permits before your home can be delivered. Permits vary by location, but may include septic and building permits.
Before your home can be delivered, you will need to secure land for your home site if you don’t already own land. This land must be zoned for off-site built housing.
A contractor will help you prep your land for delivery. It will need to be level and compacted, as well as crowned for proper drainage. You will also need a foundation for your home. A local retailer will help ensure your site is ready before delivery.
Taxes & Fees
Taxes and fees vary by location. The responsibility of the property taxes can vary depending on whether you own the land your home is on or if you rent.
Home insurance protects your property from losses and damage. Different home types fall under different types of insurance and insurance providers will have policies tailored to each home type.
Down Payment & Deposit
Once you have a final build quote from the builder and loan approval from the lender, and you have agreed upon a final purchase price, you will often need to provide a deposit and down payment.
