Ronnie,

You need to contact the Mobile Park management company. You do not buy the lots, you pay a monthly rental. That is why these can not be put in the MLS. Mobile homes without owning the land are considered personal property, like your car. You receive a Title from the motor vehicle department. Realtors can only sell "real property" where you own the land as in a fee simple sale or a % or common ownership as in a condo or coop situation.

For some a mobile retirement community can be an affordable option. May sure you check out the monthly fee and what it covers. Also check out if you can insure it. It is very difficult, if not impossible to insure a mobile home over 25 years old. Remember like your car, this is an investment that depreciates rather than goes up in value. I feel an informed Buyer makes the best decisions regarding their real estate needs. Let me know if I can be of assistance.

Adelina,

The monthly maintenance of $180 shows in the MLS as covering :Building Exterior, Ground Maintenance, Building Insurance, Maintenance/Repairs, Water/Sewer &Trash Removal. The taxes for 2011 were $1492 and they were not homesteaded. This is not a " Short Sale", it is Bank owned. The bank already foreclosed on it and is selling it "As Is". There is no pool.

I feel an informed client makes the best decisions regarding their real estate needs. Let me know if I can be of assistance.

Hi Jay,

Sandlewood Condos- monthly maintenance is $398. The listing states it covers cable and trash. As a condo it probably also covers grounds, building exterior and roof but that would need to be verified. There is a community pool and laundry facilities.

Michael,

This condo was sold on 5/23/11 for $49,000. It was a bank owned property. The problem with Realty Tracker, a sight many use for foreclosures is that listings are based on whether or not a house has a lien filed on it ...not whether it is actually for sale or not and as you can see in this instance the information is not kept updated on a daily basis to record changes.

Are you currently looking for a home or just browsing on line for now? I have a free service called “Listingbook”, which I provide for my clients. It is like a back door into the MLS, which updates daily: new listings, price changes, solds & withdrawn listings, allowing you to really be able to follow and learn the market. I set up a basic search according to your guidelines. Once you are in, you can change the parameters as you need. If this is something you would be interested in let me know & I would be glad to set up your free Listingbook Account. If you would rather a search of just bank owned properties we can set up a custom search this way also.

If you live in the Tampa Bay area, I also have a free automated service called CITY (Curbside Info to You) available 24/7. I issue you a number you can call in on ANY Real Estate For Sale sign and it reads the MLS information to you from the street address for all ACTIVE MLS listings. If this would be helpful let me know. I just need your cell phone and an email to register it. If you want to put it on multiple phones, I can put up to three numbers on one user. Just send the numbers you want added. I will email you the number you call in on to get the information. Put it in your favorites for quick access when you are driving around. I use it all the time.

Pamela Cohn answered:
Barb,

A good starting point is to go to the Pinellas County Property Appraiser's stie : http://www.pcpao.org/
and look up your parcel to see what the appraiser's office puts the value at. Then compare it with other similiar vacant land sales within the last 3-6 months. This is more difficult in Pinellas county since we don't have much vacant land. If you are planning to sub- divide a parcel make sure to check with the zoning department regarding what minimum lot sizes and set backs are, so that you do not end up with an unsaleable and unuseable parcel. If you and the buyer could agree to split the cost of having an appraiser come out and determine the value. Hope this helps.

Sincerely,

Hi,

I checked with the listing agent and an associate of his built the units and claims there is no Chinese drywall in the units. Of course, I would recommend testing or further investigation. If you would like to see the property, please let me know and I will arrange a showing. Please feel free to contact me with any additional questions.

Anna,

As Annette said this is a"Short Sale" that was scheduled to go to auction on Sept. 12th, hence the $10,000 list price which is often an opening bid for auctions (though MLS remarks could have explained it better). Since it is listed as "Active with Contract" it means the Buyer and Seller have agreed on a price, which is unknown to the public till closing. Looking at the tax records, it shows four loans since 2003 (the seller bought it in 2001). Two loans are private money and two are two separate lenders. No lis pendem liens appear to be filed by anyone yet. If none of these loans have been satisfied (totally over $200K) then all four lenders would have to agree to the "Short Sale"....highly unlikely. Short sale fall thru rates are high....I would not hold my breath on this one.....yes it does fall in the "If it looks too good to be true....

Are you currently looking for a home or just browsing on line? I have a free service called “Listingbook”, which I provide for my clients. It is like a back door into the MLS which updates daily: price changes, solds & withdrawns, allowing you to really be able to follow and learn the market.
