Let talk about North Pinellas County in Florida (Palm Harbor, Dunedin, Clearwater, Safety Harbor)
Is it better than concrete? No. I wish no was a longer word. Concrete is far superior in regards to durability, useful life and resale value. Quality is ALWAYS the best investment. Concrete is greater quality.
What is the price? The brand Palm Harbor Homes has product starting at $67,000 and topping out at $250,000. If you intend to put the home on stilts and place on on the beach with big water views, you need to add another $600,000 for the lot.
Or you can buy a seasoned modular in a rental park for $35,000.
Or you can buy a seasoned modular in a deeded community beginning at $100,000.
Florida is a BIG place which means averages are meaningless.
