Jen, believe it or not you can own a "Factory Built" home on the North San Diego Coast West of Coast Highway 101 for under $100k You won't own the dirt in a MH Community West of Coast Highway 101 but you definitely wouldn't own the dirt in Malibu either. But you can certainly own the MH. So it can be a DREAM come true. Please feel free to contact me anytime at or call me anytime at 760 815-6977.

We also do complete remodels, rebuilds or replacements as we are general and manufactured home contractors, a manufactured home dealer and developer and a real estate broker. We also provide our own in house interior design, architectural, engineering and landscape service. Please feel free to check out our very user friendly websites:

The mobile/manufactured market is totally unique from other real estate markets. You really want to work with a real estate professional who knows the market, as well as the location, very well. For my money, I would strongly recommend you contact John Arendsen. I do not know John personally; however, I have witnessed his knowledge and expertise and sound advice for many consumers here on Trulia and know he is the best agent for the job!

In short, if I had a referral for a manufactured home...or, if I were in the market myself....I would not hesitate working with John. Best of luck to you! Hope your dream becomes a reality soon!

You got all sorts of answers to a question that is vague.
Where do you want to live? In California?
In Mexico?

Look at getting a place in Ecuador.

The place is the future for many US Americans!!
Beach homes are within reach.

Not a scary place to live at all.

As a Malibu agent, I've represented buyers and sellers in both Paradise Cove and at the Point Dume Club. The two clubs are quite different. You should consult a local, Malibu agent, like myself, for information about the clubs, and the current inventory.

Hello Jen,
The coastline of California has many great Mobile Home Communities. Here are some great areas for your curiosity; Malibu, Pacific Palisades, Santa Monica, San Diego areas. My personal favorite is Paradise Cove, you have great views of the beach and the world famous Paradise Cove Restaurant. Prices vary and depend on the locality of the area.

Deborah, Thank you so much for such warm and friendly accolades. Albeit I'm very flattered and honored to receive your truly kind and thoughtful words I would, in Jen's best interest , defer this project to someone in her geographical proximity who would be able to give her the hands on and follow through she will need to complete this project.

Jen, I do have an associate in Calabasas who is a very reputable MH dealer RE broker, contractor and developer. He and his lovely wife actually live in Malibu and he's done several projects throughout that area. Please call me anytime and I will be happy to put you in touch with them. They're a great team with a fantastic reputation.

Jen, it is OK to Dream, look at your Basket Ball Team OKC:) in addition to dreaming please send me a private e-mail with your budget. Keep in mind Mobile Home Parks in Pacific Palisades, Malibu and Santa Monica CA are still very pricey.

Hi Jen,

The following website address is for buying, selling, and renting manufactured and mobile homes. It also includes "mobile home communities" information. The link for the website will direct you to a local mobile home community I know of in Hermosa Beach, CA. Hermosa Beah is a great beach city to live in, and the mobile home community is near the beach, shops, and restaurants!

Also, the the second link is for the community which is called Marineland Mobilehome Park.

I hope this helps!

Hi Jen;
John's answer steers you toward the only real MHC on the Westside (think beach) of Los Angeles. There are otheres in Orange County, but Paradise Cove is surely one of the loveliest and most in demand.
Paradise Cove has been the featured location for many TV Shows, Movies and commercials for the last several decades. (Remember The Rockford Files with Jim Garner?)
The PC website does not currently show listings, but they are available in the Multiple Listing Service.
