What is a manufactured (or HUD) home?
These are homes built entirely in the factory under a federal building code administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The Federal Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards (commonly known as the HUD Code) went into effect June 15, 1976. Manufactured homes may be single or multi-section and are transported to the site and installed. The federal standards regulate manufactured housing design and construction, strength and durability, transportability, fire resistance, energy efficiency and quality. The HUD Code also sets performance standards for the heating, plumbing, air conditioning, thermal and electrical systems. It is the only federally-regulated national building code. On-site additions, such as garages, decks and porches, often add to the attractiveness of manufactured homes and must be built to local, state or regional building codes.

What is the difference between a manufactured home, and a mobile home?
The term ‘mobile home' refers to factory homes built prior to 1976. Manufactured or "HUD" homes are homes built after the 1976 federal standard was created.
Is a manufactured home better than a conventionally built home?
We think so! Most estimates suggest between 20-40% more lumber and fasteners are used in factory-built homes compared to similar site-built homes. All our homes are inspected by our own highly-trained quality control personnel, and by independent third-party agencies.
A manufactured home is constructed entirely in a controlled environment, built to the Federal Manufactured Home Construction and safety Standards (better known as the HUD Code). A site-built home is built "on-site" using traditional building techniques that meet either a local or state building code.
Starting in 1976, the HUD Code established a stringent series of construction and safety standards that ensure that today's manufactured homes are superior to "mobile homes," the term used for factory-built homes produced prior to the introduction of the HUD Code. Today's
manufactured homes are dramatically different in appearance from the "mobile home" of yesterday. With estimates that more than 90% of
today's manufactured homes never move from their original site. manufactured homes, like site-built homes, are now available in a variety
of designs, floorplans, and amenities. Today's manufactured homes are Indistinguishable from site-built homes and are fully compatible with any neighborhood architectural style.
How can I finance my home?
Yes. The Chestnut Point Estates & Marina Office will help assist all qualified homebuyers through a financial credit application and lender.
How long will it take to build my home?
Our homes can usually be built at the factory within 4-8 weeks from the time they are orderd - typically much faster than traditional site builders. Once the home is built then Chestnut Point Estates & Marina will arrange for site preparation, the home needs to be transported and put together ("set"), and any remaining mechanicals completed.
Can I customize your homes?
Most of our home floorplans are already customized for the size of each lot. We will work with you to determine what we can do to customize your home with existing floor plans and options.
Can add or upgrade options?
Absolutely! All of our homes come with a range of options or upgrades.
What is the price of your homes? How much do they cost?
The price of each home will be based on many factors model, floorplan, lot location, options and upgrades. Please contact or schedule a visit via Email or by telephone Call 410-937-9440 to the Chestnut Point Estates & Marina office to choose which one of our new home floor plans fit you - whether you are buying your first home, looking to retire, or searching for a smaller home after the family has left here at Chestnut Point Estates & Marina can assist you in your journey.
Are There Any Other Special Considerations I Should Know About Before Purchasing And Living In A New Manufactured Home?
Like any home, while your mortgage payment may be your biggest expense. We cover Water, Sewer, Trash, Grass, and Property Taxes excluding Cable and Electric. While, theoretically, a manufactured home can be moved after its initial placement, it is neither common or advisable to do so. If you relocate, make sure you use a professional transporter; never try to move the home yourself. Cost is another consideration in moving the home. Besides transport expenses, which include licensing fees to take your home through a state, you'll have to pay for a new foundation, installation, and utility hook-ups.
