According to the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Research Center, stick frame homes account for more than 90% of all new homes built in the United States each year. Builders, carpenters, and other trade contractors and architects thoroughly understand the stick frame building model. In addition, an extensive building material supply chain has developed across the country to support this method of new home construction.
And, unlike many modular homes, stick-frame homes will normally appreciate in value over time. And typically, stick-frame homes are easier and quicker to sell than modular homes. Many savvy owners have been able to retire comfortably from selling a stick frame home and living from the equity. But you may not have to wait for years to build equity. Often times, you can have equity the moment you move into your new home.
