“Residential Site-Built” is a real estate term used to describe a residential home that was constructed primarily at the site where it is located. Some components of nearly all homes, such as cabinets, doors, door frames, windows, window frames, heating equipment, plumbing equipment, electrical equipment, etc. are prefabricated off-site, but site-built homes are mostly constructed and finished at the site where they are located. They tend to have higher market values than similar off-site-manufactured (also referred to as pre-manufactured or simply as manufactured) homes. They also are generally easier to finance than other types of homes.
