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

"Our experience with Nationwide has been great right from the start. My wife and I had never built a home before so we had a lot of questions about the process. Our nationwide representative, Mark Kelly was very patient with us and explained a lot of things several times just so we could understand how things worked. He made it easy to put together a package that worked wonderfully for us.

We were amazed at how quickly the house was at the site after we placed the order and even more amazed to see that it was set in just one day. We are now living happily in our Whitfield Cape while some of our friends who started building at the same time are still several months away from moving in. Nationwide has been great to work with and the quality of their homes is spectacular. I can't imagine that we would move out of our home any time in the next several years, but if we did, we would look to Nationwide for our next home as well. "
