Austria and Sweden lead the prefab house market

That Swedes like prefab houses is well known. But that Austria is the second biggest market for prefab houses, is a less known fact. Since in past Austrians were building their houses to last for several generations, the trend towards prefab houses is a comparatively new one. The generation that happily built their own houses by themselves (DIY) is nowadays working so much that there is no time for that any more. They are though financially strong enough to buy a high-quality prefab house. Nowadays, 33% of the single-family houses in Austria are prefab houses with an upwards forecast. Within Austria, the trend is noticeably stronger in the eastern regions.
