In this article we’ll look at all of these factors and provide you with a handy calculator to work out how much a modular home should cost from the planning to handover stage.
Modular home builders differ in the way they price their homes. The way we calculate the price here at Anchor Homes is similar to many other modular builders in that we operate from a base price and then add any additional costs such as installation, connection, and optional upgrades.
Transport and site installation – We include 150km of transport in our base price (subject to site route) and anything over this is quoted on an individual basis. One thing to keep in mind is that modular homes transport doesn’t always take the most common route - we often take over-dimensional routes. Also, if a crane is required this is an additional cost.
Regulation requirement upgrades - Upgrades required for compliance with BAL and Energy ratings can include upgraded windows and glass, cladding, insulation, fire-fighting tanks etc.
Common upgrades/options – upgrades including decking and verandahs, balustrades, air-conditioning, wood heaters, matching carport or garage, tanks, window furnishings.
Fitting & finish upgrades – these upgrades are made at the time of colour selection and specifications and could include: stone benchtops, non-standard splashbacks, non-standard plumbing fittings, increased tiling, non-standard tiles, upgrade kitchen appliances, and the list goes on…
