DELMAR – Thinking about a new home?
Atlantis Homes wants you to think about a manufactured one. More than a decade after setting up shop in Delmar, staff members at the company say they’re still working to break the stereotypes associated with pre-built homes.
“Some people are still skeptical but they’ve come a long way,” said Randy Merritt Jr. of Atlantis Homes.
According to Merritt, the manufactured and modular homes being sold by the company today are made to last decades and provide buyers with an affordable housing option. Though sales slowed when the economy did around 2008, they’ve been picking up within the last few years as buyers have realized their mortgage payment in an Atlantis home is often no more than a rent payment would be.
“Our sales have increased as more people are choosing home ownership rather than renting,” Merritt said.
