Excel offers $100K to lure stick builders

CAMP HILL, Pa. (August 21, 2008) – Experience is believing. To showcase the value and quality benefits of modular building, Excel Homes (www.excelhomes.com) is offering builders a chance to win $100,000 toward their first Excel modular home.

“This promotion is a great way to help builders construct a new spec home at a reduced cost to their business and attract new customers during this down market. They’ll also experience the quality, use and value benefits of modular building and get hooked, just like we have,” said Steve Scharnhorst, president of Excel Homes.

Stick-builders and modular builders can visit www.isitmodular.com until September 30, 2008. Once there, builders will view a series of photos and test their knowledge to see if they can identify which homes are modular. A winner will be drawn at random and will receive $100,000 toward their first Excel home.

Modular homes are often built faster than stick-built homes, with up-front pricing. With more controlled costs and a reduction in delays from weather and subcontractor schedules, modular homes can provide builders with higher quality homes at a better value. Modular provides all of these benefits without losing the customization and design options that home buyers are looking for.

Builders can enter the contest by visiting www.isitmodular.com or by submitting their information by mail. The promotion runs through September 30, 2008. Builders in the following states are eligible: Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Vermont, Virginia and West Virginia.
