Hi Glen and Debra,
This home is not currently for sale. The reason you see it on Trulia, is because there is a notice of default filed on it, which means that the owners have missed one or more mortgage payment. The amount shown is the amount of the unpaid balance on their loan, not what the market price would be for this home. If you are interest in something similar, please message me directly. We can talk about the steps in the buying process and I can send you some active inventory that matches what you are looking for.

Thanks!

Hi George,
It is a little bigger than an acre. This home is contingent, meaning there is an accepted offer in on it, and they are waiting for bank approval. I would be happy to work with you and find you some similar available homes. Message me back with what you are looking for.
Thanks!

I'm sorry I may have confused you yes Modular and Manufatured homes are VA eligible but the one she asked about was not. The seller was accepting all cash or conventional only. I live at the top of 67 towards Poway Rd in fact only 15 minutes from Santee. Mybfamilynlives in Santee. My husband at the time and Ibought our first home and it was a mobile home VA approved brand new. We placed it on MCAS Miramar back when it was Navy owned. To add we work exclusively with San Diego Counties premiere VA lenders who teach the only VA certified Pro course. Call us to find out more and the military incentives we offer.

An onsite auction was held at the property on September 10th. It appears that they did get an acceptable bid as the home went into escrow three days later. We will know what the home sold for when it successfully closes escrow. ... more

This home is still listed for sale. If you are interested and need financing, talk to a lender about an FHA203K rehab loan. If you want more info on how those work or other Ramona properties, please let me know.

John Arendsen answered:
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.

They 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. 

Finally 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.

Ruby, I did some research on "Ramona Terrace Estates". You may already have a lot of this info but I thought I'd pass it along anyway. The park is about 35 to 40 years old so it may have some pre HUD "Mobile Homes" (built before June 15, 1976) which I highly recommend staying away from for many reasons which I will be happy to share with you.

It's a senior park(55yrs +). The space rent is $695 and there's a $62/mth add for trash and Cable. Residents/tenants pay the monthly water, gas and electric via sub meter billing. Presently there are about 13 homes for sale there. Hope this helps.

John Arendsen answered:
BTW, make sure the home is not in a flood plane as many MH developments are. If it is make sure your home has proper cross lot drainage that catch and divert run off away from your home. You should also make sure that the home as a state certified earthquake resistant bracing system (ERBS) under it as Ramona and Niland are in a zone 4 seismic area and most if not all insurance companies won't write a homeowners policy on a MH unless it has ERBS. ... more

A good part of Ramona is equestrian zoned. Your agent should know that. Or look on the MLS if it's listed. That should tell you immediately. If you don't have an agent Just call zoning and give them the APN # or address. Ramona is all about horses and one of the best places in the Country to ride. ... more

Marcie Sands answered:
J. Schneider,

According to the MLS, the property is a short sale approved at $590K and has been on the market 186 days.. It does require an appointment to see. If you are not working with your own buyer's agent, I suggest you find an agent to represent your interests as the listing agent is only representing the seller. The buyer's agent is paid through the commission that the seller has already contracted for with the seller, so there is no cost to you as the buyer. If you have not already been pre-qualified for a loan, that would be your first step.

Kind Regards,

Hi, HOA fees in this complex are just over $200/mo. Property taxes are 1% of purchase price plus any additional county and local assessements. I generally figure about 1.25% of your purchase prices. ... more

Hi Patricia,

Thanks for your question, as Cindi stated this home is not for sale. On that street, below is the activity for the past 6 months:

1 currently for sale @ $3.7M. It is 5,220 SF built in 2001
1 sold for $648,000 on 12/23/08. It is 2,589 SF and was built in 2006.

The listing info on Trulia is often inaccurate.

Best of luck,
