Home Buying in 08050>Question Details

Christina, Home Seller in 08050

Hello I am presently looking to purchase in a nice community that has resale manufactured homes on leased land

Asked by Christina, 08050 Mon Jun 30, 2008

is there any other type of disadvantage when purchasing these types of homes besides not being able to get a home mortgage.

Help the community by answering this question:


Other than the fact that you don't own the land, there isn't really any disadvantage. But since you don't own the land then you don't pay property taxes so that's a little advantage.

In a manufactured home community you'll pay a monthly maintenance fee, for your land lease and the community area grounds. You pay no taxes. Depending on the community, you might have a pool and club house and other community activities. I believe there is financing available for manufactured homes, depending on the age of the unit..

In some parts of the country NOT ALL these types of homes are difficult to resale, lost of value upon purchasing. However they can produce future rental income.

You are in Luck. There are some banks in The local area that are offering loans on these homes, TD bank (formerly commerce bank) but they do have strict guidelines. I would contact TD bank and also bank of America. I just closed on one that was approved to TD Bank
