According to MSN.COM, prefabricated and modular housing — homes that are built in factories — is having its moment. From 2013 to 2018, industry revenue grew by an annualized 8.6% to nearly $10.5 billion, including growth of 4.1% in 2018 alone, according to research firm IBISWorld.
These homes have even hit Amazon and apparently are selling out. Indeed, multiple news outlets like real estate sites Curbed and The Real Deal reported that this 172-sq-ft $7,250 prefab cabin, which the manufacturer claims can be built in eight hours, on Amazon sold out. The house comes with free shipping. Then many again reported that the home was back in stock.
