How much will it cost to setup a modular house
This modular home is fast and easy to setup. For $50,000 you get a house. Whats not included in that price is your land and site setup. This can include utility hookups, foundation, landscaping, permits, and more. Depending on your location and the complexity of your site, this cost can range anywhere from $5,000 to $50,000.

We will be connecting customers with our financing partners. Many loan options are available. Before we finalize your modular house order our financing partners will reach out to you to discuss loan options. Its likely you can finance your new modular home with a traditional 30 year mortgage.

Cost could be as low as $250
The $250 number on the front page of the website is an estimated finance cost for the basic room module only with an average 30 year mortgage. Any additional install costs would also be added to the mortgage. Final payment might be $250-$500,


  1. I’d love to see this video redone without generic advice for viewers and just YOUR personal summary sharing YOUR personal experiences, opinions and wisdom.

  2. Great tips! I would maybe disagree with your opinion about "learning Spanish". If you only stay at very touristy places you are going to be fine without Spanish. Everywhere else you will be alone. The average Tico doesn’t speak English. Also, your experience will be very different and you’ll never really feel at home here.

  3. Good videos but after watching a few, look into getting a new mic 🙂 the audio need to be a little more vibrant and clear. Great videos tho

  4. Hola costa Rica,es caro y hay un poco menos de delincuentes que en otros países,pero es hermoso,y Pura vida??

  5. I think if you could create a perfect video it would be a video explaining the basic cost of living there with details of the cost of rent and an idea of ​​the cost to create a house as your property. How much does the food cost, such as milk, fish, chicken meat, rice, potatoes, etc.? How much is the electricity bill, the water. How much does a car cost. Make a list of all the details, make a great video since you can’t find one like that. And how a foreigner can earn a living there. then create more content, on an adventure with animals, talk about how
    How perfect your life have been there ect, and it is difficult to find a woman there ?

  6. If I stay there for a couple of months, can I manage without a car? using only public transport and private drivers? where would you recommend I look for rent?

  7. Hey mate I strongly recommend you invest in a lapel microphone can get them really cheap now – it will turn your videos into a masterpiece. Thanks for the effort
