Swimming pools generally do not add value to your home. The exception would be luxury high end homes in wealthy neighborhoods.

With respect to mortgage financing, Mobile Homes were built before 1986, and are not considered real property, and are therefore not eligible for a residential real estate mortgage.

Manufactured Homes are built in a factory, and then delivered to the home site. Most lenders will not lend on Manufactured Homes in AZ, but those that do, require the MFH to be a double wide, permanently affixed, with no home improvements that could affect the integrity of the original construction.

Modular Homes are also built in a factory, but the materials are delivered to the property in separate pieces, to be constructed like a stick built home, based on local building codes.

Since your home was built after 1986, it is not a mobile home. And because there are very few modular homes built in AZ, it is very likely that your house is a Manufactured Home. You can check your bedroom closets for an FHA metal plackard that provides the original manufacturer details, or you can also look up your address on the Maricopa County Assessor's website, where your property taxes are partially calculated based on the type of your home's construction:

Hope this helps! For specific mortgage related questions in AZ, contact Steve Bernstein,

My suggestion is to research the "Eminent Domain" laws for the city of Phoenix: and/or review the city of Phoenix "Landlord & Tenant Act:"

Other than reading the actual statutes, the best idea may be to contact a local Phoenix, AZ attorney who specializes in your specific need.

Please call or email me any time, if you have questions about Buying, Refinancing, or taking Cash Out of an Arizona home. Steve Bernstein (480) 424-7144

Arcadia is a nice, family friendly neighborhood very near the airport. You can walk to grocery stores and nice restaurants in certain parts of Arcadia.

Many places except felons. If they are sex offenders then you'll get a notice all the time of every sex offender within a mile distance of your home. Our Central Phoenix townhouse gets them a lot of notices but our complex is gated and secure so no unwanted traffic can come on the property. Good inexpensive to average rental, Park Medeterraine Townhomes, right next to the rail/buses. ... more

Your best bet is to call a few contractors for estimates. We are agents and lenders, and therefore not adept at the price of construction.
Also, 15X15 is not the same as 10X20, although both groups of numbers equal 30. A room 15X15 is 225 square feet. A room 10X20 is 200 square feet.
Get estimates for both, since the cost will vary.

Good luck!

Great question for an attorney. Rent to owns rarely turn out well for the Renter/buyer. Most never end up completing the purchase. We can't be more helpful other to suggest you speak to an attorney and bring all your documentation and avoid these in the future.
If you want to buy, get your financing in order and get preapproved for a mortgage. Sorry for your troubles.

I noticed you posted in the PV section. PV certainly can be a good place to invest/retire. But one would definitely need more information regarding your needs and desires. Price point is important, but so is lifestyle, amenities, size of the property, whether you will need property management, how long until retirement, etc.

Post up a little more info, or contact me through my profile to discuss your needs and what options are available.
