With the recent and unrelenting media coverage of the housing market, price depreciation, bank failures, and unprecedented government intervention in the mortgage industry, we’re finding that many folks these days are apprehensive about beginning the home-building process during this adjustment period in the housing market. We can’t say that we blame you.
It’s a sad fact that many homeowners each year find themselves victim to unscrupulous lenders or builders without the financial resources and managerial experience necessary to succeed in a competitive market; in fact, we have seen much consolidation in our field over the past several years as some modular and manufactured home-builders have closed up shop or been absorbed by large, publicly-held corporations. However, the Pine Grove Housing Group is a nationally regarded leader in the field of manufactured and modular homes, and we’ve worked hard to carefully and deliberately cultivate a reputation as solid as the homes we build with the hundreds of local builders and retailers that we serve, lenders, and state, county, and local officials. As an industry-leader, Pine Grove’s finances are without question and our management experience is second to none.
Of course, any participant in a cyclical market such as the housing market must take certain financial precautions and make operational adjustments when times get a little tough. Some builders out there are using cheaper materials and others are trimming key, but dispensable positions, such as those in quality control. We aren’t doing any of that. Instead, we’re building the same high-quality homes that we always have, but are leveraging our purchasing power to acquire the same building materials at a lower cost. And while we’re certainly watching unnecessary expenses, we’re not cutting corners that end up causing far more problems than they’re worth. In short, we’re going to continue to build the same well-designed and solidly-built homes that we have for the past twenty-seven years.
If you are ready to purchase your dream home, you can buy with confidence having Pine Grove or Pleasant Valley as your manufacturer of choice.
