To my knowledge EMD is not a law and/or required, but it is customary and common. There is a spot for it on the purchase contract. Sellers like to see an EMD as it shows the buyers interest and readiness to buy.

This is simply my opinion and not to be taken as legal advise as I am not an attorney. I would suggest that you contact a Real Estate Attorney for all the legal details.

If I can be of any further assistance please feel free to contact me.

Have a Happy New Year!

Normally land zoned AG still accepts a modular. Zoning is the one to ask once you find a piece of land you like. But look for lots zoned AG

However, with all the foreclosures , I know of some very low priced homes out there right now. So check with a lender and see how much they can pre-approve you for and maybe you can get a house for the price of a lot and modular home! If your worried about low credit then pop me an email and I can suggest a few lenders to start with.

Thank you Debbie for your kind offer.

We did find a great house and we closed last Friday and are looking forward to moving to Virginia.

I do notice this website still shows our new house for sale.

Thank again!

Debbie Martin answered:
Hi Paul,

The answer would depend on the zoning from Gloucester County. I would be happy to give you the number to Codes and Compliance and also Zoning for Gloucester. Sometimes if there is already a mobile on the location and it has been lived in with Dominion Power still being used, the county will let you switch an older unit for a newer one. Modulars are usually allowed unless there are deed restrictions in place against them.

I would be happy to help. Call me at 757-876-2314.

I look forward to helping you.

Unfortunately, I don't see what property you are referring to. However, any question on taxes should be directed to the County of Gloucester. That would be the place to find out everything you need to know.

Best of Luck,

Chris Ognek answered:
If you are just looking for land financing, the best thing to do is probably either cross collateralize with the land and trailer. If you just want to borrow for the land, you'll more than likely need a down payment of 20% or more, again all depending on credit and income. You can also look for a landowner that is willing to seller finance the land with either straight financing or a contract for deed. ... more

The Northern end of Gloucester county has the best deals right now and is more likely to be zoned for mobile home.
