Walking distance to the mountain clubhouse is about 3 blocks. Hope that helps. It is now available after May 20th. Booked until then.

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.

Be wary of any manufactured home built before June 15, 1976 as they are "PRE HUD" homes and will be very difficult if not impossible to finance. Additionally many if not most PRE HUD homes were built using caustic and carcinogenic chemicals i.e. formaldehyde and asbestos.

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 space rent on the unit is $661 @ month. Most of the homes in Suncrest vary on space rent.

However, I do have an alternative for you to consider and that is Indian Springs which is not on a golf course and sits high Palm Desert on Hwy 74. Space rents here for the most part run slightly over $500 @ month and yes there are a couple of special ones in the $600 range. You really need to view some of these as its an entirely different setting for our homes. Beautiful view of the mountains as we sit right at the bottom of the Santa Rosa's.
If I can be of any help, please contact me and I will be happy to show any place in the desert.
