I don't know about Santa Rosa but most Manufactured Home Communities do not allow rentals. This is to maintain a level of quality and control in who lives in these communities. Because each home is usually owned by individuals it is impossible to set a standard on who someone might rent to. Manufactured homes tend to be a very economical living arrangement but because of this is also can attract less desireable tenants. It is for the protection of the whole community that they do not allow rentals. ... more

I highly recommend working with a Realtor that is an investor/landlord themselves. That way you speak the same language.

When you find the perfect realtor to help you with your purchase, keep us in mind for the Property Management side. With over 25 years of experience and 275 offices nationwide, no other company understands local rental conditions as well as we do. You can check us out at

The cost of vacancy is the single highest expense for owners and investors. Real Property Management has developed a system that results in the lowest vacancy rates in the area, combining a number of strategies throughout the leasing cycle. We ensure the property is in rent-ready condition and aggressively marketed to attract the highest quality applicants. Then we thoroughly screen credit and criminal background to place the best possible tenants. Finally, we keep those tenants happy with a professional, responsible staff they can count on 24 hours a day--which leads to lower tenant turnover.

Santa Rosa is very diverse. We have the McDonald Mansion district that has old stately architecture, we have Fountaingrove which is predominantly higher end homes, we have older sections of town where the homes were built in the 50's and we have newer neighborhoods. Something for everyone. I have lived in Southern California and Washington and it seems wherever I go nothing seems to compare to living here.

We are close to the ocean, we have beautiful vineyards, we have redwoods, lots of parks, rivers, you name it, we have it. The weather is pretty hard to beat as well. We also have a Class-A junior college (Santa Rosa Junior College) with a beautiful campus.
