If you own your manufactured home on land, you have the same bundle of rights as an owner of a site built house on land. If you rent your lot space, and own the home, you can make interior changes to suit yourself without asking for landlords permission, or worrying that you are improving some one else's property. Most trailer spaces have parking space right next to the trailer, some condos have parking that is further away from the unit.
Lot rent is often less than apartment rent, so if your trailer payments are low enough, the monthly cost for a 3 bedroom 2 bath trailer, should be less than the rent on a house nearby with similar square footage, maybe, could be, might be, about the same as a 1 bedroom apartment.

Have you spoken to your former agent's broker? If not, call him and explain your situation to him. Tell him you want to put in another offer on this house but you want to work with a different agent.

I'm assuming that you're looking to move down to Rocklin from your current home. Ask your agent to write an addendum for a 'Rent Back' to the buyers of your home. This way you can ask to stay for however long you need. You'll sign a rental agreement between the 2 of you for the amount of time you need.
Keep in mind it's like renting an apartment and you need to make sure the property is delivered in the condition you have stated on the purchase contract.... more
Good afternoon! What search program are you using? I'm sure other agents and Trulia may not like me for this, but the best search I have found for the public is MetrolistMLS. I believe they even have an option to save searches. The information is up to date, and the status is current within 24 hours for property. You may notice fewer homes in your search, but this is because it doesn't include old statuses for homes that are already Sold or Pending. Good luck in your search!... more
