Mia Knecht asked:
It seems like the lots would be worthless without the ability to get water/sewer/electric hook ups? Or if they will not issue home building permits for that section. I asked this before…

Roughly: nothing. If the land is completely undeveloped, depending on its size I would say it is worth $1500 to $5000. However, if the lot has any type of utilities that would greatly increase its value. Also, if there are potential agricultural uses and it is hundreds of acres it may be very valuable if it has access to water.

Is the property in a rental park (leased land) or is it on resident owned land? What year was he home built? Are you seeking an FHA loan? These questions will help us better determine what advice we can offer you. If the manufactured home is in a rental park and/or you are paying cash for it you won't have to worry about a foundation.

If you are moving a MH into a rental park you will need to pull an installation permit which requires that the home be set up on a California State Certified "Engineered Tiedown System" (ETS) which is a required number of heavy duty piers and or braces that connect the home to the ground.

If, however, you're placing it on privately owned property I would highly recommend contacting the Imperial County building department anonymously first. It is by far the most difficult county we've ever worked in when it comes to the permit process.

We have been providing engineered certifications, foundation retrofitting and the California required HCD (Housing and Community Development Department) 433a documentation for over 20 years. We are a Nationwide company and we've never had a more difficult time dealing with a building department anywhere in the Nation as we've had with Imperial County.

They charge absurd permit fees i.e. $1000 for a foundation permit whereas most other county's in the state only charge about $300. Additionally, San Bernardino is a little less complicated but it can still be a very frustrating experience.

Please provide the APN number (County Tax Number on your tax bill) for the parcel and we can provide you with an approximate price range for various sales scenarios, such as fast sales, average sales and retail sales. These scenarios you need to evaluate in accordance to your personal and financial circumstances. Generally land takes much longer to sell that other properties, also various issues affecting the specific parcel will have a bearing on the marketability of the parcel. ... more

To find the answer to this question you can usually go to the City Planning department and they will have maps and overlays of potential projects in the future. Are you looking to buy in the Salton Sea area? There are many very affordable newer home s in that area. Please don’t hesitate to call me if you have any further questions.
