Impresa Modular offers the most advanced modular home cost estimator available to custom home buyers. The Express Project EstimatorTM is designed to provide ballpark cost estimates for virtually every modular home floor plan we offer. When you research modular home floor plans on the internet, builders almost always refrain from providing pricing information. Have you wondered why? At Impresa Modular we decided a long time ago that we were going to offer the best value in custom modular homes to our customers. We don’t play games with pricing. We believe we offer the best service and the best quality, all at the best value across the country. Our modular home prices are available and conveniently provided through the Express Project EstimatorTM.
Our revolutionary modular home cost calculator takes the estimating process to the next level. What makes our Express Project EstimatorTM the best on the market? By obtaining the actual modular home price, the cost for delivery and assembly, and then coupling this with realistic pricing estimates for onsite work necessary to create a complete turn-key home package, prospective customers have access to budgetary numbers perfect for planning. Others have tried to create estimation tools but have failed to provide realistic estimates with useful information for homebuyers. We believe they have failed for two reasons. First, the focus was on showing the absolute lowest price possible. Expectations were incorrectly set so when real modular home pricing was obtained, in many cases it was almost twice that of the original estimate. Second, other estimators weren’t flexible enough to allow for cost of living variations between regions. Costs can vary widely and if a customer knows they live in a higher cost area, the tool should be sophisticated enough to allow for changes so a realistic estimate can be created.

What’s the Difference Between an Estimate and a Quote?
For many home buyers that are about to embark on building a new home, this will be their first experience with the process. Being new to the construction process, they often think that an estimate is the same thing as a quote. While they may appear similar, they have two very different purposes.
A home estimate is given very early on in the process. It is just what it sounds like, an estimate. It is really a rough estimate. It is used when you are trying to determine if a particular lot and house plan combination will fit into your budget. You don’t want to spend money on creating house plans prior to determining a rough cost for the house. Neither you, nor any home builder want to go through the hassle and time consuming exercise of getting bids, visiting potential build sites, and completing a formal process only to find the costs are too high for your budget. Don’t expect cost estimates to be perfectly accurate. The goal of a great ballpark estimate should be to get within plus or minus 10% of an actual quote. The Express Project EstimatorTM is a valuable estimating tool, which should prove reasonably accurate, when used properly, to evaluate potential home plans against each other.
A quote typically takes much more effort to complete. For a custom home, an actual home plan needs to be developed to give specific custom modular home pricing quotes. A home buyer will have to pay a plan fee/deposit that can cost between $1,500 – 2,500 to get an exact quote completed. Getting the home plan completed is the first step towards getting an accurate quote. Once you have a quote, you know exactly how much the home will cost you. You will want a price on what the entire home building project is going to cost you when all is said and done.
A quote can also contain thing called allowances or not-to-exceed clauses. Allowances are typically created for things that aren’t well defined or can change. It allows a price to be given but, if it is exceeded, can cause the quote or contract price to go up by the amount of the overage. Not-to-exceed clauses can function in a similar way. Always be sure to understand exactly what the allowance is for and the likelihood that it could be exceeded.
