I have a mobile home for sale $9,000. Only needs a little cosmetics. Solid trailer. 2 bed 1 bath with garden tub. Located in Montrose, PA. Might be able to be moved, not sure, I hear it's expensive. You decide. Check out my Binghamton craigslist ad:
I am looking for full price but will consider a small price change.

Are you looking to buy a home in Hudson? Short sales can be a great deal if you are willing to wait as they usually takes several months for the bank to get back to you with either an acceptance or rejection of your offer. Patience can pay off for a short sale ... more

Susan Sawyer Your Real Estate Expert answered:
The answer is possibly yes. With changes in the mortgage industry, you will need to talk with a lender first. When I sold my home last year I found out I needed to sell my home before I could buy another one and that a renter would have to live in my home for 2 years before the mortgage company would consider that income. Depending on your financial information you may qualify to buy another home without having to sell your home. We have great realtors and mortgage companies in this area. ... more

Hi Msant,
Ever heard the phrase "Everything old is new again?" Styles and tastes change and with innovation (indoor steam heating) came functional obsolescence (no need to have an open fireplace), to later be replaced by a slightly distorted idea that people loved being warmed by their fireplaces. They didn't! By the late 1800's they'd begun using more "modern" woodstove and even basement furnaces(!), and by the later 1800's they were using basement furnaces,gas and steam heat rather than wood, when possible.People who could afford to,chose what was touted as healthier, a more modern alternative than the drafty, sometimes smelly fireplaces that often got too hot and then too cold. You didn't say what the basement looks like - check there.

Re: the wood floors being covered, a history buff would object, but unless you are buying the home for its original condition and historical significance, only you can decide whether lamniate flooring is offensive to you! :)

Good luck with your purchase! This one has lasted 130 years so far - barring insect damage, no reason it won't remain standing for a long time to come!

Hi Dale,

I work in that area (in fact, I've got a home under contract in Beacon Woods right now) - your best bet would be to call a local insurance agent. If you'd like some references, please feel free to contact me at and I'd be happy to put a few together for you.

To all who answered. I loved the property I seen in a few times and went to closing day when I received closing papers day prior. Verbiage was not agreeable so I backed out. I was working with seller real estate office to purchase. After being threaten by seller and my real estate agent, I told them forget it. Very hard for them to sue me for backing out. I won and could have got my deposit back but decided enough was enough. Good thing as it turns out I am better to rent than buy with economy in such bad shape. The intent
was to purchase as winter home... Thanks again and to all be careful as some agents are wolves in todays market.. We did contact lawyer and he said seller would have a real hard time making us purchase and was king enough not to charge us for advise unless sellers attorney wanted to move forward. They backed off when they learned the odds. Seller contacted me and said our real estate office was the ones who pushed for suit as they had lost their commission. I could have went to board of realty and place a complaint. But decided we were better people by not putting more gas on the fire. All agents are not the same so be careful and get a good agent. They left very nasty messages which I had recorded just in case we went to judgement. Then I would have went for my earnest money. Very tough to make buyer purchase if they dont want... Seller backing out would be different a whole different story. We would have purchase and could have worked around the verbiage had our agent been more honest.. At the point of being so nasty to try and get their commission with threats to have seller sue. We said not in a million years.
