With respect to mortgage financing, Mobile Homes were built before 1986, and are not considered real property, and are therefore not eligible for a residential real estate mortgage.

Manufactured Homes are built in a factory, and then delivered to the home site. Most lenders will not lend on Manufactured Homes in AZ, but those that do, require the MFH to be a double wide, permanently affixed, with no home improvements that could affect the integrity of the original construction.

Modular Homes are also built in a factory, but the materials are delivered to the property in separate pieces, to be constructed like a stick built home, based on local building codes.

Since your home was built after 1986, it is not a mobile home. And because there are very few modular homes built in AZ, it is very likely that your house is a Manufactured Home. You can check your bedroom closets for an FHA metal plackard that provides the original manufacturer details, or you can also look up your address on the Maricopa County Assessor's website, where your property taxes are partially calculated based on the type of your home's construction:

Hope this helps! For specific mortgage related questions in AZ, contact Steve Bernstein,

Many places except felons. If they are sex offenders then you'll get a notice all the time of every sex offender within a mile distance of your home.

Good inexpensive to average rental, Park Medeterraine Townhomes, right next to the rail/buses. ... more

Hi Wuxeter!

You posted this under general Q & A for rentals in Deer Valley. I believe you would be better served by contacting the agent for the property about which you're inquiring directly.

Best of luck!

Dustin Miller answered:
Although Renting to Own is a pretty popular topic among many 1st time buyers you definitely want to understand the pros and cons of a Rent to Own deal. If the terms are favorable they can be a good tool for both buyers AND sellers.

Also, I'd definitely recommend speaking with a competent agent and maybe an attorney prior to signing any agreement and reading up on some possible pros or cons on a rent to own deal. There's some good resources online that can help you understand some of the key points for a good rent to own deal and also some of the pitfalls. Here's a few examples:

Just make sure you know what you're doing and don't take a seller's word for it if you aren't sure about a deal. This market where many cities have rising home prices would be a time you'd want to set the sale price NOW and not in the future. The opposite is true in a downward trending market. Keep that in mind also.

Good Luck!

Tammy Hayes answered:
In most counties you can look up information on a property in the county record search. You can find out if the home has pulled any permits for items such as the AC. Or contact a local Realtor who can look up the information for you. We can't help you because you didn't provide an address.

I work with a lender that can loan again the day after a short sale or foreclosure with 25% down, six months of reserves, and only a 600 FICO. Give me a call to discuss.
