Having been in new construction for many years, I can tell you that modular homes can actually have fewer problems than stick. Why? Because modulars have the benefit of being built in a controlled environment without exposure to severe temperature changes and wet weather. Because homes are wood, these elements can have a significant impact on the final product. Because modulars are also cheaper to build, they can be a great value. You'd be amazed at how many builders are going in this direction. Di Vosta homes in Florida has built their whole business around them. The only drawback there might be is that once it is delivered you can;t make a lot of changes and with stick you have tome to change things at each phase of the construction. However, if it is already existing it doesn't matter. Hope that helps.
