Contact the park manager for the age, pet & policies, monthly rent/lease and related cost info. You'll have to be approved by the manager anyway and they'll have all that info. However, be aware that mobile homes built before June 15, 1976 may contain some very harmfull and unhealthy chemicals i.e. asbestos, formaldahyde, etc. Even though the home you're looking at appears to be a 1977 it could still have some harmfull chemicals in it.

I'd get a thorough inspection by an experienced manufactured home inspector and not just any home inspector. There's are several nuances about a manufactured home you need to consider as well. Does the home have earthquake braces? What's the condition of the pier and pad support system under the home? Is the vapor barrier and insulation in tact and free from rips and tears. Is the home dry underneath? Is it in a flood plain?

We service that area and have been in the manufactured home business for 30 years and would be happy to answer any questions you may have at no charge. Feel free to log onto any of our very user friendly websites:

BYW, the home being advertised is a "MANUFACTURED (HUD) HOME" not a "MODULAR HOME". There's not a lot of difference in the way their manufactured. In fact they usually go down the same assembly lines.
