Loving Your Home

Happy February to all. Since it is the month of love and many celebrating Valentine’s Day, I thought it only appropriate to write about why so many people have fallen in love with their home from DeTray’s Custom Housing here in Puyallup.

We carry two of the top builders in the industry, KIT and Skyline. Both of these builders offer a beautiful and high quality product with amenities and options to make every dream come true.

Whether you are looking for a single wide unit or a large triple, you will be pleased with the abundance of floor plans offered by both builders. Our builders start from the ground up with quality construction from floor to ceiling. Exterior options such as siding, roofing, porches and more. Interior walls that are tape and textured with rounded corners and a choice of several interior colors. Beautiful linoleum, carpeting and more for flooring. A wide range of appliance options allows you to create your dream kitchen, which is the focal point for many of our homeowners.

The ability to customize their new home and make it their own is just one of the reasons why customers design their home with us and refer their friends and family to DeTray’s.
Our main focus at DeTray’s is not just building your dream home but building relationships. We take the time to learn about every customer’s needs and wants. We encourage you to visit our models and talk with one of our amazing housing consultants. We know once you see the quality of craftsmanship, array of customization and competitive pricing, you too will fall in love with your new home. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Get Your Bang for the Buck

I wanted to talk to you about getting the most “bang for your buck” when it comes to buying a home. If you look at today’s building materials in our new manufactured homes, they are what I see on today’s construction sites. I drive around and see various housing developments, apartment homes, new commercial buildings and they all have one thing in common. You guessed it, the materials used to build. I see O.S.B. board, 2×4’s, 2×6’s, sheet rock, Tyvek house wrap and the list goes on. Our homes from DeTray’s have all the same materials, real wood studs, joists and trusses, top-grade roofing materials, energy star windows, insulation, siding and doors just like a home built today.

You want Quartz counter tops, tiled showers, name-brand appliances, Hardie lap siding, metal roofs, all for far less that the competitors offer? Then come see us today. Most new homes built today range from the mid 300’s up to 500k. Why pay so much for something that is built with the same materials as today’s manufactured homes? Manufactured home building standards are quite impressive given the manufactured homes history; it is almost night and day. This is a good thing for the consumer who is looking for home ownership, not everyone has 350K to go buy a 2-story home in a neighborhood, on a “postage stamp” lot and no parking. Reach out and give your neighbor a high-five without leaving your home! Well, thanks but no thanks, that’s just my opinion. In today’s market and your average cost of living, who wouldn’t like to have a custom home built with quality building materials for 30% less and have a large piece of land you can actually do things with? Not having an H.O.A. telling you what you can or cannot do on your land? No thank you. I know what sounds more appealing to me. Home ownership with fewer restrictions, a bigger lot and larger home for less. That is high value. That is more “bang for your buck“!

With that said, I encourage you to look into today’s manufactured homes and just see what might be a perfect solution to your housing needs. Hope to see you soon here at DeTray’s Custom Housing. Stop by and see me at 10209 149th St. E. in Puyallup.

Happy Holidays!
