I am interested in modular homes in or around denver. Does anyone have any advice on good companies for this? Where are they located, where do they have models??
Are they popular in the Denver area?

There were a couple on Federal Blvd, in the 50ish block I think. One sounded like Aetna, and they did have models there.
There is one on the Frontage road on the East side of I-25 between the Lupton and Longmont exit. I want to say Rainbow homes but might be mistaken. They do have models as well.
There is also another one with models at the Campion exit, It is North of Longmont, the place in on the left once you get off I-25, you can see if from the highway.
One company builds them up in Miliken but you are not allowed there , nor do they have models.
Modular is different then manufactured. Modular is UBC built and increases in value like a stick nuilt home does. Manufactured is HUD built and more trailer-ish and does not increase in value well if at all. So ask them UBC or HUD built when gettting prices and etc.

Oh and as far as being popular in Denver, not really. Those houses are already sitting there and it is not likely you will find a lot to build on. Out in the country they are more common, but make sure their are no coventants on the land that restricts you from placing one on it.

This may be a dumb question, but I hear a lot of good things about Highlands Ranch. I wonder if there are lots I could put a modular home on in that area??

Highlands Ranch is a subdivision of stick built homes within an HOA. No modulars, or lots for sale to individuals.

You are looking for an older subdivision. There are a few modular home builders in Colorado. They are quite popular on the outskirts of Denver. Bennet, Strausburg, Deer Field, even Kittridge and Conifer.

I am guessing that the reason you are attracted to modular homes is the cost. You might take a look at what is currently in inventory. And find a place close to work.

Yesterday, it took me 2 hours to get to work, 12.5 miles from my house.
