The truth is realtors won't take a mobile home listing because a mobile home is legally considered personal property. It's not real estate. So it has nothing to do with being in a community or park. Mobile or manufactured homes are considered real estate IF the owner has title and owns the land underneath the home. If the owner pays rent or the land underneath the mobile home is leased, then the mobile home is legally personal property.

You can contact the listing agent who will be able to help you learn more about that specific property (and probably will know a lot about similar properties in the area). To find an agent, just click on the yellow button on the property's Trulia listing and you will be able to start a dialogue.
Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can help with anything else. I am happy to be a resource for you. Good luck with the search!

Very bad!! I live just outside there. Monticello is NOT the place to go. very gang and drug infused city. while there are some nice areas outside Monticello, Rock Hill and Bethal, Monticello itself is a very bad city. Trust me I live in the area. there is also not much by way of regular shopping except the Rat infested Walmart that is potentially being shut down as we speak and Home depot and Shoprite. any mom and pop places are typically seasonal and close down as soon as the summer ends.... more
