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:

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.

HI Ellen,

As a long term resident of the east valley, with a good chunk of time in Ahwatukee, I can tell you that it is a lovely community surrounded by mountain views, great parks and amenities, and very nice subdivisions. It has the great benefit of feeling like an "off the beaten track' hamlet, while being conveniently located approximately 7 miles from a major Phoenix artery that will get you to the downtown area in approximately 20 minutes. Additionally, it provides easy access to Sky Harbor Airport, Scottsdale, and even Prescott is an easy hour and 45 minute drive!

The nearest hospital is Chandler Regional Hospital roughly at the corner of Chandler Blvd. and Dobson Road. It is truly a world class hospital with full capability.

In the time it took you to log-in and post your question, you could have used Google - found locations, store hours, a map - and been on your way while waiting for a response.

Certificate of occupancy's would not be an area of expertise for me as a Realtor but I would think the City the business is located in and or the county would be the likely spot.

Most residential builds are issued a certificate from the city they are located in.

We should have some others on this forum that do more building and can contribute for you.
