John Arendsen answered:
Careful. The age ole adage in MH parks is the higher the space rent the lower the value of your home. You're already looking at a circa 1977 mobile home which is next to impossible to finance unless you are paying cash. Next you'll be paying ten grand a year for space rent. Take the twenty grand that you will spend on the home and put it down on a MH home in a resident owned community. You end up owning the land and controlling your own destiny. Just a thought. ... more

You may want to start by asking the park management if it's a rental park. If it's resident owned they should still have an onsite manager.

John Arendsen answered:
Once again, find out if the home was built after 1980. If it was the county tax assessor will have information on it. You may also want to talk to the management company which you will have to do eventually if it's a rental park. You will have to go through an application process. In fact, you may want to start there before you get too excited about the home. ... more

John Arendsen answered:
Is it a resident owned development where you own the space? Or is it a rental park? If it's the later it would not qualify for an FHA loan. However, if it's a resident owned and the home was built after 1976 and has a foundation system, engineered certification and 433a documentation required by the Housing and Community Development Department (HCD) then yes it would providing you meet their other requirements. ... more

John Arendsen answered:
The management company should be able to tell you that. If not and the home was built after 1980 check with the county tax assessor. You may also want to find out if it's a foreclosure. You're smart to frame this question in so many different ways. Good Luck. ... more

John Arendsen answered:
I think I've already addressed this question framed differently later. Just be sure you hire an experienced Manufactured Home inspector to thoroughly investigate the condition of the understructure (piers, pads, earthquake braces, drainage, vapor barrier, mold, standing water, etc. Also have them thoroughly inspect the roof.

Check to see if the home was built after June 15, 1976. If it wasn't you may have a very difficult time financing it if that's an issue. You may also want to see what kind of lease they're offering and if the park is in a rent control district. There's an ago old adage in the MH industry: "The higher the rent the less the home is worth" This could answer your question about whether or not there is a problem in that park.

John Arendsen answered:
More important than the appliences would be the space rent, whether the park is in a rent control area, the year of the home. Make sure it was built after June 15, 1976 if you want any kind of financing or resale potential. You should also hire an experience MH inspector who understands all the nuances about MH's which most home inspectors don't. Make sure the understructure (piers, pads, earthquake braces, vapor barrier, insulation, etc) are in tact and that there are no mold or drainage issues. ... more
