Is there a web site that has a list of space rent for mobile homes in Orange County, California?

Help the community by answering this question:


I don't think there is a site just for space rent amount. The park I specialize in will allow you to rent out a room, you have to notify the park of another resident and they have to meet with the manager to go over and abide by the rules and be over 18. That is Rancho Del Rey Senior park and the space rent is $1064 per mo, will go up in Jan 2012 to $1090..Thanks Thanya

My site will allow you to search for mobile /manufactured homes. I am not aware of a site that just focuses on manufactured homes in Orange County. You can search for a rent/lease or for a purchase on my site. http://www.heavnlehomes.com

You also need to let us know if you're talking about a rent/lease park/community or a resident owned development. If it's a resident owned community there are in fact "regualr banks" that will offer conventional 30 year mortgages on them i.e. Wells Fargo providing the MH development is HUD approved.

Personally I would not just take the word of a RE professional as they may not be particularly familiar with every park/community's rules and regs. Your best bet is to speak with each and every park/community manager and/or HOA representitive to get an exact answer.

There is not a list for the parks that have mobile / manufactured homes
You would call each one or better yet talk to an agent who will let you know which parks have them for sale. You would want to know if its a family park or a senior park which has more restrictions. I would get an inspector who knows about the pre-fab homes
Space rent ranges from 700-800 up to 1500 per month
What part of Orange County are you looking in? How many bedrooms? Max amount of space rent you want to pay? A family park? Any pets?
You would have to fill out an application and be interviewed by the park manager before living there
If you are thinking of financing the regular banks do not finance mobile/manufactured homes. I have a list of companies who do finance them
Look forward to hearing from you and help you find a home. Talk to you soon

Are there any parks that rent the homes?

You really should start with the park manager of the park/communities you are interested in. You will have to fill out an application and be approved by them before you even make an offer on a manufactured home in a rent/lease park/community.

Be wary of any manufactured home built before June 15, 1976 as they are "PRE HUD" homes and will be very difficult if not impossible to finance. Additionally many if not most PRE HUD homes were built using caustic and carcinogenic chemicals i.e. formaldehyde and asbestos.

But before you purchase any manufactured home you should have the home inspected by an experienced manufactured home inspector and not just any home inspector.Make sure the home is level and that the pier and pad assemblies are in good shape.

Be sure the vapor barrier and insulation are in tact and not ripped, torn or lying on the ground. Have the inspector look for drainage issues i.e. standing water, soil erosion, expansive (clay soil), rusted and deteriorating piers and dry rotted or decomposing wood pads supporting the piers.

Most importantly make sure the home has an approved set of Earthquake Resistant Bracing installed under it as much of California is in a Zone 4 seismic area:
