50 Years of Building Modular Homes

Can I buy a house for $5 down?

Nationwide Custom Homes Well...probably not now. But if you had asked us 50 years ago, we had a deal for you!

That's Right: 50 Years Ago - 1959

Nationwide Custom Homes Alaska and Hawaii became our 49th and 50th States. A first class stamp cost 4 cents. And Nationwide opened for business. We sold a home to Willie Martin - allowing him to trade up from this:

To a new Nationwide home

Nationwide Custom Homes For 71 monthly payments of $46.45, Willie bought a home for his family and Nationwide built the first of nearly 35,000 homes. While we started out building kit homes, in 1969 we started our systems-built product lines and have never looked back.

Nationwide Custom Homes By the early 80's, we were one of the largest builders of apartments and condominiums in the United States as well as a high volume producer of single-family homes. By 1995 we'd built our 20,000th home. Over time, we added factories in North Carolina and Georgia to assist our main facilities in Martinsville, Virginia. This accelerated the pace of production, bringing us to our 30,000th home in 2003. We are now approaching our 35,000th home.

What Customers are Saying About Our Custom Homes

"I would like to take this opportunity to tell you directly about my experiences that I have had with your staff over the past couple of weeks.

Firstly I want to say that Jon at the Arabi plant was a GREAT help and most assistive with the questions I had about the Nationwide process and in particular our first house.

Secondly John on the set crew was the most professional and efficient person that I have dealt with with what he has to do in a very short time frame.

Your PRO SET PLUS crew that did our home should be VERY highly commended. The efficiency and co-operation by John and his staff was absolutely beyond reproach. They did their jobs quickly, effectively, neatly AND cleaned up after themselves. Any builder that does NOT utilize your PRO SET PLUS program is making a HUGE mistake.

Your staff at Martinsville have literally bent over backwards to help us get the best design and functionality out of our houses. This has lead us to the present position of having SIX hot prospects for new and existing home owners as potential home buyers at HUNLEY WATERS.

In summation Nationwide Custom Homes has been a pleasure to work with. Thank you and your staff for all that you do."
