I would suggest keeping an eye on it via Realtor.com, zillow.com, trulia.com which are public listing websites. Or,I would be happy to have listings emailed directly to you in areas that are in your price range and if you have the time you can drive by and see if those areas are comfortable for you. Mobile homes are another option but financing is limited and most are sold all cash especially if they are over 20 years old. Condos or townhomes are an option, but if you have any pets often there are restrictions as to size and breed when they are allowed.
I have been selling in the Long Beach and Neighboring Communities for over 30+ years and would be happy to help if you want to contact me.

Now a little more information to consider...will you move here with a job in place? Do you have established good credit? How much do you have saved for a downpayment? Can you increase that between now and then?
Now to answer your question more specifically. 250K may not be the number based on the previous information. The bank will loan you money based on your income...the property is the collateral against that loan. SO the real questions is how much home can you afford based on your income and your downpayment.
Working with a realtor can help you develop a plan that brings success to your goal. They will know the market, when and where properties are coming on the market and help you form the plan for success.
Mobil home comes with a land lease, condos come with HOA's that vary on location. Your price is a beginning market price and most likely, at this time, puts you in the 1-2 bedroom condo range depending on the city. That price is low for Huntington Beach so have you considered other areas? And again your income and down will determine what you can afford.
It may be helpful to you to talk to a lender and get a preliminary idea of what your options are so you can plan for your future.
Hope you find this helpful.
Wishing you success,
If you would like to see what I can find for you, just so that you get an idea of what is out here currently in your price range, email me. I can also expalin what land leases and lot fees are in that email or over the phone.
