You really should start with the park manager. You will have to fill out an application and be approved by them before you even make an offer on a manufactured home in a rental park

Be sure to have it thoroughly inspected by an experienced MH inspector and not just any home inspector as there are several nuances with MHs that you don't have in a conventional site-built home and most home inspectors not familiar with these nuances will not even know what to look for.

Make sure the inspector crawls under the home and thoroughly inspects each and every pier and pad assembly for rust, deterioration and decomposition if steel and for decomposition if concrete as homes that close to the ocean can be severely impacted by salt.

They should also make sure the home is level by checking all the doors and windows to make sure that they are not swinging or sticking and that all the strike plates on the doors are properly aligned and the doors close soundly.

The inspector should also inspect the steel mainframe for rust and decomposition as well. I can't tell you how many mainframes we've had to repair that were suffering and in some cases even failing from rust and deterioration related issues.

Be sure and have the inspector check for rips and tears in the vapor barrier under the floor. If there are openings in this membrane it could allow the insulation under the floor to become compromised and even fall on the ground.

Openings in the vapor barrier are also a great place for rodents and cats to habitate and reproduce. We've eradicated countless critters from these cavities over the years and it's not a very pleasant experience.

Finally and very importantly make sure the home has a state Housing and Community Development Department (HCD) certified earthquake resistant bracing system (ERBS) as this area is classified as a Zone 4 earthquake area.

We are a California licensed and experienced manufactured home and general contractor and manufactured home dealer, developer and real estate brokerage with decades of experience in the MH industry.

We don't cover that area but we would be happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have about purchasing a MH at no charge as long as we can do it on this forum. Or you can email us at

Good Evening Gary. 11755 Preston St does not appear to be on the market at this time. It also does not appear that it is in default. Title records also reflect this property as a 3 bedroom/ 2 bath as is typical for the neighborhood. 11761 Preston St. is currently pending sale. Let me know if I can be of any further assistance. ... more

Good Evening. 22362 Blue Pine sold 9/24/2012 and 22342 Blue Pine is currently accepting "Back Up" offers. It is fairly common that buyer's cancel due to finding issues with the property during their inspection period or fall out of escrow due to the buyer not being able to obtain the loan. So an agent listing the property will solicit back up offers until the buyer has removed all contingencies. If you would like additional details on the property let me know.
