Unfortunately, there are several people that make money scamming people in this way. I have seen several on Craig's list, usually the property owner is "out of the country" for some mysterious reason. Even though the scams vary a little, the unsuspecting person is asked to send money to someone they don't know. The age old adage is still good advice today, "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is". One good way to flush these people out it is to ask specific info about the area like, how far from the hospital is it, or what school district is the house in? They will not be able to answer these types of questions as they don't really own the house they are trying to rent.
Just make sure that the RE Professional is also a Manufactured Home Expert. Don't just list your home with the cutest smile you get.

You really should find a Manufactured Home Dealer who is licensed to deal in Manufactured Housing.

Most of my clients have found they were better off working with a Realtor (ME) in finding their home or investment. Auctions have become extremely competitive and finding a "great deal" has become increasingly more difficult. I would recommend working with a good, high-octane Realtor to help you find what you're looking for.... more
Thank you all for your answers. Do the banks not realize people such as my husband and I do not want to buy houses that have been sitting empty and deteriorating for months and even years? We are also hesitant to buy when we see blocks with numerous empty houses and you just don't know what the neighborhood is going to end up looking like. Banks need to put more houses on the market. So much of it now looks like a bunch of junk. We're not interested in going in debt for 30 years for junk.... more
