A home of your own?
Done. TRU is making affordable home ownership possible in America, which means living the dream of owning your own place has never been closer to reality.
Our homes require delivery, setup and land that’s owned or leased, but even with these costs added in, the price of owning a TRU prefab home is only a fraction of the price tag on America’s average house.
Us and Them
We’re no rocket scientists, but we know a good deal when we see one.
The average sales price of a new home sold in the United States (including land) as of January 2017 was $355,3001. For the average TRU manufactured home, a total price average, is $24,906* (this excludes any additional costs associated with delivery, setup and land). This price will vary based on the home you choose, your home’s size and the distance of your delivery site from the manufacturing site, however, on average, this means the average TRU home is priced very competitively when compared to the average home sold in the United States.
“Based on U.S. Census data, the average price per square foot of a manufactured home is $44, compared to $94 for a site-built home.”2
When you live in a TRU, you make more than the beds—you make the rules.
Want a puppy? Bring one home. A gallery wall in your living room? Hang it up. Once you have the keys, anything goes. And since you’re living in an affordable home, you’ll have extra cash to spend on whatever you want.

Please contact a TRU retailer to discuss pricing for any particular home you may be interested in and they will gladly provide you a more accurate quote based on the exact home, home size, home delivery location, and delivery and setup, etc.
