Hello, I'm a mortgage professional.

There are several steps. Generally after you apply, submit your income and asset documents and get pre approved you then find a home, get a contract, submit whatever other paperwork the bank needs, order the appraisal, get the loan approved by an underwriter and close. There are a few other steps in there.

I can explain more.

If you have any other questions or would like help with this you are welcome to get in touch with me.

Agree with Don on this one. We have many different types of Mobile Home parks in Orange City. Some really great ones that offer golf or retirement activities, others just a cheap place to park or purchase an older mobile home.

Whether you are looking to move your home in or purchase an existing mobile home in the park, make sure you thoroughly do you homework. Check with future neighbors and look for online reviews. Always, always read your contract and if you are not sure have a real estate attorney or paralegal review the contract.

If you are purchasing an existing mobile home in the park, do not waive the home inspections. Older mobile home have many issues that if not maintained or replaced can be very costly. A well maintained mobile home can last a long time but a poorly maintained one can deteriorate in less than a year to the point of being uninhabitable.

When purchasing a mobile home, you are not covered by the same laws that protect home owners. A mobile home is a vehicle and not covered by the states building codes or real estate laws, it is regulated by the DMV and HUD. Since a mobile home is tangible property, it does not require building permits or oversight by county and state building departments. Many of the additions, re-roofs, plumbing retrofits, electrical upgrades and other repairs are completed by handymen and unlicensed repairmen. Ensure you have a thorough mobile home inspection before purchasing a manufactured home.

Always do your research and never buy a mobile home without a thorough inspection.

Investment property falls into several different property types i.e. Single Family Homes and Multi-family to name just two, and truly all depends on your investment style and some other factors.

The first thing you should do is find and work with a real estate agent. It is your first time buying a home and shouldn't be taken lightly. It will probably be the most expensive investment you will ever make and you need as much guidance you can get. The choices you have are enormous, and can be very overwhelming. I am a Lic.

If you actually mean $25K, I can understand completely. You normally can't get a mortgage for such a low amount. Your agent would also be working for roughly $500 depending on their tax bracket. They don't do tons less work at lower price-points - in fact it's normally more time intensive to deal with lower prices especially when you involve a federal agency owned property.

If this is a Homepath property, I suggest you do some looking into the process and difficulty in buying those online before you get too excited. (Spoiler: they're a pain in the rear.)

Also, if it's actually a 25K property and not in a terrible area, it's probably in such horrible shape it won't qualify for financing.
