Hi Cindy,

Yes most utilities would be your responsibility...which definitely makes the space rent look more expensive. I don't specialize in manufactured homes. But I am familiar with this part of Vista. And I wouldn't encourage any of my clients to purchase here. I think you can do better!

Ignore my previous post David with apologies. while this listing is still a GEAT one in a very clean secure area of Vista..... the note I posted previously was for a listing in the very upscale Nob Hill community. Sorry for the confusion.

David... doesn't seem you know Vista well. These are NOT 'manufactured homes' but frame-up on concrete slab built in the late 70's and most completely remodeled since. They are 1 mile from the prestigious Vista - Warmlands area.... one of the best residential home areas in North County
This is one on the safest (zero on crime maps 2014 to date) areas of north county and Nob Hill offers one of the highest dollar value 'senior' communities in north county. Located on gentle HILLS (Nob Hill) takes full advantage of Vista's perfect weather... warm clear mornings and afternoon ocean breezes (700 ft elevation). The location is quiet, and close to shopping and facilities as well as easy freeway access . I would encourage anyone looking for a safe, clean, inviting community retirement home (or ANY new home need) to look no further than this prime area of Vista.

Hello Cindy,
Park rent is 595 monthly. This home is for sale. The monthly rent is an added expense to what you will have to pay on your mortgage. Still a lot cheaper than most rentals.

Thanks, i know the home is for sale and that is why i asked the park rent. Do they pay any of the utilities or are you responsible for gas,elec and water and trash? Pet poicy should be ok as i only have a house cat.

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 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 California State Housing and Community Development Department (HCD) certified earthquake resistant bracing system (ERBS) as most areas in California are classified as a Zone 4 earthquake area which holds a high probability of risk for a seismic event..

Also be aware that many of the MH's in this park/community are PRE HUD, built before June 15, 1976. Mobile Homes built up to 1979 are known to have caustic (formaldehyde) and carcinogenic (asbestos) chemicals in the insulation, popcorn ceilings, acoustical tile, particle board sub floors and perhaps even countertops.
