Hello, I'm a mortgage professional.

It depends on the bank.

With us as long as the borrower has a new job and the income hasn't changed you should be fine. If the income goes down or up then the new income must be considered.

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

I have several mobile homes and each brand is different. In California I bought a 2006 manufactured home that has 2x6 walls, lots of insulation and a ducting system to keep the heat away from the vaulted ceilings. It is on a well and the appliances are mostly electricity and my bills averaged $42 a month. I have a 2002 in Florida and I removed some of the vinyl siding to do some repairs. Already some of the flooring was deteriorating and below the windows was rotting. Mainly because Florida is humid and it rains quite often. You could give it a few more years in a dryer climate. Newer is generally better, but the manufacturer is more important. I have a 1994 and the OSB sheets under the roofing are deteriorating and the particle board floors are doing the same thing. I also spoke with several banks about people purchasing my mobile home. Wells Fargo and several other banks said they won't lend on them at all. There are some special loans based on the persons income, but they would not get the low interest loan a house could get. Another consideration should be utility bills. I have a block house that is really well insulated. The bills average $36 a month. Just to cool the 2002 manufactured home takes $100 extra. Heating is the biggest factor. Most manufactured homes are not well insulated nor are they looking at the new "Green" ideas when it comes to building. They are usually looking at cheap and making money. This is why most mobile home manufacturers will offer loans. Insurance should also be a factor when considering what your end payment would actually be with utilities, appreciation, and insurance. ... more

Tough question, only answered by a builder. Basically, I don't believe you will save much money. Reason, used two story houses are not cheaper than used one story houses.

Have lived in Ellenton for 10 months now. LOVE it. Originally looking in the Clearwater area...sooo glad we are here. Granted, there is a little bit of a drive to "main stream" shopping, entertainment, etc. But eveything is right off the more then a 10 mminute drive from here. Location is excellent because you are in the middle of Tampa. St. Petersburg, Sarasota, etc. with none of the traffic hassles. ... more

Is that the listing price or what you're thinking of offering? If it is an offer you're thinking of making, your best bet is to contact a local realtor and have them assit you with evaluating what the market comps are in that particular neighborhood/area.

Residential real estate in Manatee County is my specialty, contact me at Linda@LindaSingerHomes and I'll put together a buyer's market analysis for you.

Good luck and happy home hunting. Linda Singer, Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate, Manatee Avenue 795-2211 - cell 685-0949
