We certainly don't mind answering your questions, however, before you ever put down any money on a MH in a rent/lease park/community you will need to get accepted by the park management at which time they will disclose the space rent, utilities, all related fees and costs and disclose the rule and regulations. 

There are some other things you need to know about purchasing a manufactured home as well. If it's a pre HUD, built before June 15, 1976 there could be some issues with caustic and carcinogenic chemicals i.e. formaldahyde, asbestos, etc.

Additionally, trying to obtain financing for a Pre HUD home is very difficult. 

You also need to have the home thoroughly inspected by an experienced Manufactured Home inspector and not just any home inspector. There are several nuances about manufactured homes that an inexperienced MH inspector doesn't even know to addresss. 

Make sure they check the understructure (crawl space area) to see what kind of condition all the piers and pads are in and if the home is level. The also need to check for rips and tears in the vapor barrier (membrane seperating the ground from the floor and holding the insulation in place.

They also need to look for any signs of drainage issues i.e. standing water, soil erosion, gaping cracks in the soil, etc. Many parks/communities were built in flood plains and have an inherent problem with drainage issues which can lead to instability of the piers and pads and mold issues. 

Make sure that the home has a Housing and Community Development Department (HCD) approved Earthquake Resistant Bracing System (ERBS) in place as that area is in a zone 4 seismic area and manufacture homes are extremely vulnerable to earthquakes.

If you have any other questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us. Even though we do not service your area we would be more than happy to help you at no cost. We have been in the manufactured home business for almost 30 years and are a licensed general and manufactured home contractor, manufactured home dealer and developer and a real estate broker.

The space rent is $831 per month and includes gas, park maintenance and swimming pool. In addition, if you offer the full asking price of $37,500, the seller is giving the buyer these incentives as credits through close of escrow: $375 toward purchase of a 1 yr home warranty; $936 toward buyer's closing costs; and 2 months space rent of $1,662 paid directly to the park.
This is an immaculate mobile home in a beautiful, established park, close to shopping, community park, public transportation and library. Call me and make it yours!

Lisa the space fee is $831.00 per month. I do not believe utilities are included. The park is for persons 55 years and older. It does allow pets.
