I know from experience that FHA won;t approve a mobile over 10 yrs. old and this one seems to be at least 15. the most important thing to realize about mobiles is that they always depreciate--never appreciate--like buying a car. However, this one,if the pix are accurate and it has all these amenities--seems to be a real bargain. The land alone is worth something. Talk to a bank loan officer or mortgage broker.

Hi Mary Ann - Different lenders have different approaches on mobile homes. If you need a lender contact please let me know and I will be happy to pass along a few names. This looks like an interesting opportunity.

Happy 2009,

Mary Ann,

This particular home is coming up as a withdrawn listing. I could contact the listing agent if you are interested to see what is going on and if the seller intends to relist. I do have a source that will finance manufactured homes on leased land. This lender requires excellent credit on a home on leased land. If you would like more information, please contact me directly. Thank you, Nancy Richardson

I agree with Dana, this looks like a bargain!
