Yes it's True! Demand for modular or mobile homes is booming on Vancouver Island as first-time homebuyers and downsizers increasingly embrace this affordable construction method. From tiny homes to high-end single-family dwellings, factory-built housing can be built faster and cheaper than on-site. Modern designs and aesthetics are also appealing to a younger demographic, while the stigma surrounding modular housing is fading. With average home in the VIREB area currently now over the $500,000 price point, mobile homes are starting to become very sought after.
