Will There be Hidden Costs and Fees with USModular?


A common annoyance that home builders encounter is the unexpected or unseen fees added when building an on-site home. Many first-time homeowners have a budget they had hoped to stick with, only to discover that there are many costly charges that seem to come up out of nowhere.

Common Hidden Costs for On-Site Home Builds in Hawthorne

  • Permits – there are many Hawthorne permits necessary before on-site building can begin.
  • Perk testing – this measures the rate of water absorption and determines how big of a sand mound and leach field you will require.
  • Surveying: – many Hawthorne builders have to pay a surveyor to map the property lines, set backs from road ways, and any legal right of ways.
  • Internal Customizations – such as appliances, fireplaces, etc.
  • Overages – last minutes changes and unexpected extra costs
  • Utilities – such as electricity used for construction, gas, water, etc.
  • Water treatment systems – usually only a problem with well water

These unseen fees for on-site builds can add up quickly and require you to deviate from your original budget.
