Tracy your best bet is to get an appraisal or brokers price oppinion. They would look at the value of the land with and with out the mobile home. A home of that age has limited value unless it has been redone, or is on a permenant foundation. There are some factors for establishing value. Are you looking to sell? As far as the leach field there are some great companies in the area that can assist in replacing it. Depending on the layout of the land, if it is near any water, ledge etc will affect the cost to install. Please email me if i can be or more service Tracy.

Hi Tracy,

You ask, " I own a 1963 mobile home on 5.5 acres of land in Deering, New Hampshire . I am in need of a new leach field. How do I find out the blue book value of the house and land?"

This is really a three part question. But it seems to me you are asking what you could sell the home for, and how much would a leach field cost--so you could factor in the expense of that repair--to determine what you would net.

Generally speaking, mobile homes older than 20 years are hard to finance. And single wide units over 20 years are almost impossible--so have almost no value. The land may have some value, and the home will probably sell for the value of the land. A new septic field will cost somewhere between $5,000 and $15,000. But if the home is selling for the land value, then you can forget the cost to replace the field.

Land may require a 50% downpayment, so that may also be a tough sale just now.

If you choose to go with a new field,I think the best value is a Presby System--check them out in Google, you should budget $7,500 or so for that system.

To get a hard dollar figure, call a Realtor in your area and ask for a CMA (Comparitive Market Analysis), don't bother looking at your property tax bill, it'll be off by 25% at least.

Good Luck
