Hi, Diego!
Mobile homes are generally considered "personal property" as opposed to "real property", and therefore, the financing options mirror those of a car loan.
I do work with some lenders that specialize in mobile-home loans, and I would be happy to help you out in finding the right mobile home for you!
Contact me today!

Are you a listing agent?
and everything ok with your cut, right?
Are you a broker too? or you are with Escrow?
I had some mistakes with commission splits but as soon as I sent Escrow a confirmation of the right split ( signed previously of course), they corrected all right away.

Best wishes,
Inna I.

Sadly this can and does happen.

When I work with buyers and we are submitting offers on short sales I stipulate REAl clearly in the purchase agreement , that seller is not to submit any competing offers to the bank if they accept our offer.. Although seller retains the right to accept "BACK UP" offers.

If this was not stipulated in your agreement , the seller can and sadly at times will submit competing offers to the bank.

Best of luck to you!!!

You have been doing all the right thins. With the facts you stated here, you should be able to secure a mortgage loan.

Only a lender can tell you the exact amount you can qualify for and the terms you can get.

I really wish you the best. I get so excited when I see a young person doing what you have done.

You should be very proud of yourself!

Much Success to You,

Kawain Payne, Realtor

Pretty late to actually buy the house, but an explanation should be warranted. Cash offers are a factor as closing time(for sure in this area) is dramatically cut down.

Mike McGinn answered:
I don't see an apartment complex 92683 that had a scheduled auction date for 10/11 so I'm not sure if the auction happened. However, I just saw your question.

Unfortunately, the bank isn't required to give you any kind of counter offer. Only if your offer is close to what they will get at auction will they counter. The problem is that they can have unreasonable expectations about what the property will bring at auction.

Lastly, BK is a misunderstood, very temporary fix if there is no equity in the property. When the auction date is that close you have very limited options. Submitting a better offer may have been your only option and it was probably too late for that.

Feel free to give me a call if you'd like to discuss further. Best of luck.

It doesn't look likely.

From what I can tell there is no loan on the property with that address, and it is not on the market.

I may be wrong, but I don't think so.

Michael Tran answered:
Hello Thanh Duy,
Here you are facing with two issues, Emotional and Economical. How much "dislike" are you with the current home? if you stay and stick it out for another few years until the market turn, would that be so terrible? and what is the picture of the bottom line if you sell the house, exactly how much you will loose and are there any other options?. Answer those questions then you should have a clearer answer.

If you want to brain storm on these issues, contact me.

Hi LM,

If you really want to buy homes at a huge discount. That is one of the best resource you can have as a buyer. However; if you don't have the knowledge and a skill, you should seek a real estate professional to help you to purchase the home you like. You will save a lot of time, money, and energy to seek a professional like us. Don't try to go out there and purchase property by yourself. If you do that, you will may facing a lot of unknowns. If you want to search for active listings on the market, visit my website on the link below this message. You can search for homes national wide as well as your own local cities. You will also find a lot of resources for you to know as a buyer or a seller.

Good luck on your searching for your dream home!

Huy Nguyen

Irina Karan answered:
Wow! This could mean a market shift and the seller's market, with the shortage of properties and plenty of buyers. It is this way in Miami, FL.
Believe me, this is just as frustrating for us, as Realtors, to call on listing agents that don't call back (usually because the property is under contract, but they didn't update it in the system), or to find out in early am that they "just got the contract accepted"...when the property just came out the night before. In this kind of fast paced market place, you got to have a good realtor helping you.

There are some great agents outthere in your area - but you just might be going the wrong way in your search of them: you got to find your own agent - by interviewing at least a couple of agents, choosing one who is most knowledgable ot your state laws and the market, and giving them a good chance to find you a great home.

It is true that many listing agents won't tell you -the buyer- the "scoop" on the property, but they will do so to other agents, as we know how to ask/request information.

Wishing you to find a great agent and a great home,

Irina Karan

Bob Phillips answered:

Karen's answer is more relevant to a local home buying experience. A trust is usually just a regular mom and dad who have taken their financial and estate planning to a higher level than most home owners.

As Karen stated, it has little to no bearing on you, as a potential buyer of the property.
