This property actually has a Santa Cruz address with a zip code of 95065. It is about 5 miles north of Santa Cruz proper and east of Highway 17 in a semi mountaineous area with lots of trees. This property has been on the market for 145 days with no price reductions.

If you would like more information, or would like to see it. Please let me know as it does require an appointment in order to preview.

Thanks, Carol VanAusdal

You really should start with the park manager. You will have to fill out an application and be approved by them before you even make an offer on a manufactured home in a rental park

Be sure to have it thoroughly inspected by an experienced MH inspector and not just any home inspector as there are several nuances with MHs that you don't have in a conventional site-built home and most home inspectors not familiar with these nuances will not even know what to look for.

Make sure the inspector crawls under the home and thoroughly inspects each and every pier and pad assembly for rust, deterioration and decomposition if steel and for decomposition if concrete as homes close to the ocean can be severely impacted by salt.

They should also make sure the home is level by checking all the doors and windows to make sure that they are not swinging or sticking and that all the strike plates on the doors are properly aligned and the doors close soundly.

The inspector should also inspect the steel mainframe for rust and decomposition as well. I can't tell you how many mainframes we've had to repair that were suffering and in some cases even failing from rust and deterioration related issues.

Be sure and have the inspector check for rips and tears in the vapor barrier under the floor. If there are openings in this membrane it could allow the insulation under the floor to become compromised and even fall on the ground.

Openings in the vapor barrier are also a great place for rodents and cats to habitate and reproduce. We've eradicated countless critters from these cavities over the years and it's not a very pleasant experience.

Finally and very importantly make sure the home has a California State Housing and Community Development Department (HCD) certified earthquake resistant bracing system (ERBS) as most areas in California are classified as a Zone 4 earthquake area which holds a high probability of risk for a seismic event..

We are a California licensed and experienced manufactured home and general contractor and manufactured home dealer, developer and real estate brokerage with decades of experience in the MH industry.

Ed Duron answered:
This may be a scam.
One, the rental rate is way below market for this type of home.
Second, the name mentioned in the ad is NOT the owner on title.
There are currently many scams where people set up dummy accounts and try to get money for rent or deposits on homes that they do not have any access to or ownership or right to.
If they have excuses as to why they cannot meet you at the house and show you the interior in person, then that is very more than likely a scam.

If and when you may be looking to buy, please give us a call at 831-684-2000
Best of Luck, Ed Duron

M.C. Dwyer answered:
Hi Azhen,
The $360 HOA fees are monthly, but more importantly, that is a Measure O unit and it's pending sale already.
Measure O is affordable housing. So, the Max Income for a 1 person household is $67,117, for 2 people $77,035, and 3 $86293.
Trulia doesn't always catch the Pending Status - this went into escrow May 2nd.
If you'd like help finding a place before someone buys it, give me a jingle or send me a text/e-mail!
