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.
So if your mobile home fits the definition of personal property, you need to advertise on Craigslist, Instagram and as many non real estate websites as possible. Try Postlets, Google, Yahoo homes, etc.... more
I think that they probably had an obligation to get the tank read just prior to closing. If you haven't filled it since then, or you have and know the approximate balance at the time of closing, you might want to keep them as a friend and offer something. You never know when you might need their help with some other aspect of the home that they would know about since they lived in it before.
Your contract however may specify what happens in this event. I'd start there and see exactly what the language says. Since you agreed to it up front, they could make a claim. Your defense may be that you weren't given proper or reliable notice, however a mediator or judge may still feel you owe something.
Work this out on your own if possible.... more

No bus service to Long Eddy. Buses run to Monticello or Liberty and then you need a ride-- about 35 min away. There will be bus service starting Memorial Day through labor Day to the Villa Roma, which will then be about 15 min away from Long Eddy,... more
Roxane, thank you for posting this warning. I looked into one of Shadowcrip's listings on Trulia and his response was rather fishy. So I searched the user name, and luckily your post here came up. Definitely a scam!... more
Definitely not a good place to raise kids. There is just so little for the kids to do. We have family here so it made life a bit easier to manage. If you move here you will have to be prepared to spend LOTS of time in the car going to and from activities that are not in the area.
We are looking forward to moving to a more active area soon.
Good luck.... more
The market is changing. What you need to have your agent do is run the sales in the area. The recent selling prices of similar properties is the current market value. Of course condition and location adjustments may need to be made. 15 to 20% is far off of what the current market is seeing. Cash is not necessarily a bonus. If a qualified buyer is able to procure a mortgage the seller is getting cash. Cash is good if the property is missing a c/o for a deck for example or if there are property issues. A seller is much more interested in money then a cash vs a mortgage buyer. Now there may be some properties which show a much larger percentage amount of negotiation then others and quite likely that is because they are over priced at the asking price and the selling price was likely negotiated down to market value.... more
