According to Trendgrphix data base, Colfax zip 95713 is actually down on foreclosures, we peaked at 16 active on the market in March of 2012 to just 5 active REO's last month.

Colfax has a limited job market and most working residence commute, so the combination of poor job market and higher gas prices put more home owners in a bad position.

If you are using Realty Trac as your data source, take it with a grain of salt.

I agree with Patti that a mobile home park can be a cash cow, when it is correctly priced. I am in escrow (as the agent) for a mobile home park with a 12% cap rate.

Current taxes on that property are based on a value of 264,000. , for a tax bill of just over $2800/yr

If you are purchasing the property for $125,000 your taxes will be recalculated with the new basis, BUT it takes awhile for this to happen, at closing you will be paying based on the OLD tax bill. Check with your agent and escrow officer for details. A ballpark estimate for when your taxes are reset they will be about $1490/yr if the assessed value is $125,000. including the extra agency fees, see the Placer County Tax Collector website for more info and they can also give you a more accurate $$ amount and time frame for the adjustment.
