Are modular homes different from a mobile home trailer or manufactured home?

Yes, a modular home is not a mobile home; it is simply a home that is built off-site, as opposed to on-site. These homes are often called factory-built, system-built or prefab (short for prefabricated) homes. Modular and manufactured homes are not the same. Modular homes are very customizable and built to all state and local codes which results in a much higher quality home. Check out the infographic below for more differentiators.
