In July 2014 in the city of Palmdale there were 154 single family homes sold (excludes attached condos/townhomes). The average sales price was 98.73% of the list price.

In July 2014 in the city of Lancaster there were 160 single family homes sold (excludes attached condos/townhomes). The average sales price was 99.31% of the list price.

I didn't know what kind of time frame you were interested in seeing so I picked the month you posted.

You really should start with the park manager. You will have to fill out an application and be approved by them before you even make an offer on a manufactured home in a rental park


Be sure to have it thoroughly inspected by an experienced MH inspector and not just any home inspector as there are several nuances with MHs that you don't have in a conventional site-built home and most home inspectors not familiar with these nuances will not even know what to look for.

Make sure the inspector crawls under the home and thoroughly inspects each and every pier and pad assembly for rust, deterioration and decomposition if steel and for decomposition if concrete as homes close to the ocean can be severely impacted by salt.

They should also make sure the home is level by checking all the doors and windows to make sure that they are not swinging or sticking and that all the strike plates on the doors are properly aligned and the doors close soundly.

The inspector should also inspect the steel mainframe for rust and decomposition as well. I can't tell you how many mainframes we've had to repair that were suffering and in some cases even failing from rust and deterioration related issues.

Be sure and have the inspector check for rips and tears in the vapor barrier under the floor. If there are openings in this membrane it could allow the insulation under the floor to become compromised and even fall on the ground.

Openings in the vapor barrier are also a great place for rodents and cats to habitate and reproduce. We've eradicated countless critters from these cavities over the years and it's not a very pleasant experience.

Finally and very importantly make sure the home has a California State Housing and Community Development Department (HCD) certified earthquake resistant bracing system (ERBS) as most areas in California are classified as a Zone 4 earthquake area which holds a high probability of risk for a seismic event..

We are a California licensed and experienced manufactured home and general contractor and manufactured home dealer, developer and real estate brokerage with decades of experience in the MH industry.

Please feel free to contact us anytime at 800 909-1110; cell: 760 815-6977. Or email us at onthelevel@cox.net.

Please feel free to log onto any of our very user friendly websites:

Also be aware that the MH is a PRE HUD, built before June 15, 1976. Mobile Homes built up to 1979 are known to have caustic (formaldehyde) and carcinogenic (asbestos) chemicals in the insulation, popcorn ceilings, acoustical tile, particle board sub floors and perhaps even countertops.
You really should start with the park manager. You will have to fill out an application and be approved by them before you even make an offer on a manufactured home in a rental park. But you should also make sure you have the home inspected by an experienced manufactured home inspector and not just any home inspector.

Hey Michael the Palmdale Sheriff Sub Station is the best place to find details about the house in question. Crime blotter and crime reports are also helpful. If you would like a neighborhood demographic profile let me know. ... more

Current market conditions are very competitive there is a very low inventory of homes on market with a lot of actively looking buyers due to favorable interest rates, low prices, etc. Please provide more information as to the type of home you are currently looking for bedrooms, bathrooms, location and price range. Hope to hear from you soon!

Hello californiataxservice,

Your Odds ARE HIGH! With the City of Palmdale program available to owner occupant buyers, you'll find you have several options.

I do recomend that you research the neighborhoods before purchasing - one way to do that is to actually speak with the Palmdale Sheriff substation office at (661) 272-2400, you can speak to the community services officer.

If I can help you in your search, please let me know and I'll be happy to assist you, I am a local agent and I've closed City of Palmdale properties and am familiar with the process.

Thank you,
