You really should start with the park manager of the park/communities you are interested in. 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 rent/lease park/community.
But before you purchase any manufactured home you should have the home inspected by an experienced manufactured home inspector and not just any home inspector.Make sure the home is level and that the pier and pad assemblies are in good shape.
Be sure the vapor barrier and insulation are in tact and not ripped, torn or lying on the ground. Have the inspector look for drainage issues i.e. standing water, soil erosion, expansive (clay soil), rusted and deteriorating piers and dry rotted or decomposing wood pads supporting the piers.
Most importantly make sure the home has an approved set of Earthquake Resistant Bracing (ERBS) installed under it as much of California is in a Zone 4 seismic area:

The property price was input incorrectly and changed the same day to $110,000. This is a short sale and there is a recent model match sale in the complex (of a bank owned property) at $130,000. This property is also currently showing "Pending" on the MLS which means it is in escrow. There is another 4/2 short sale in the complex priced at $175,000.
Remember, in a short sale the Short Sale Lender is the final word on the value of the property. This home may not sell for $110,000, however, that is the list price. Hope this clarifies things.
