Tanya;

Yes, this house sold last year under this listing. The market has really turned upward since this house was listed.

Give me a call is you are shopping for a home. At this time, there is a house on Estate Way that is for sale, and within your price range. ... more

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..

Not preapproved yet I still have complete an application for NPHS government assistance for down payment up to 40,000 I was asked questions and they said I seem to qualify? Only problem is that if I am approved it will only be good for 90 days so Im waiting until I am ready. I have been delinquent on a loan because I was out of work for 1 year. I will make 1 year at my current job in October. I just make my last past due payment this month and now I am current. My credit score was in the 700+ prior to being unemployed and now because of my current loan I am not sure what my credit score is but I should at least wait 60 days hopefully it will show on my credit score as current and bring up my score a little. I am interested in a decent home or condo for under 50,000 if possible with no land fee and HUD approved for the sake of the government homeownership assistance. Can you make any suggestions?

John Arendsen answered:
You really should start with the park manager of the park/communities you are interested in. 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 rent/lease park/community.

Be wary of any manufactured home built before June 15, 1976 as they are "PRE HUD" homes and will be very difficult if not impossible to finance. Additionally many if not most PRE HUD homes were built using caustic and carcinogenic chemicals i.e. formaldehyde and asbestos.

But before you purchase any manufactured home you should have the home inspected by an experienced manufactured home inspector and not just any home inspector.Make sure the home is level and that the pier and pad assemblies are in good shape.

Be sure the vapor barrier and insulation are in tact and not ripped, torn or lying on the ground. Have the inspector look for drainage issues i.e. standing water, soil erosion, expansive (clay soil), rusted and deteriorating piers and dry rotted or decomposing wood pads supporting the piers.

Most importantly make sure the home has an approved set of Earthquake Resistant Bracing (ERBS) installed under it as much of California is in a Zone 4 seismic area:

In order to find the right property for you and in the right location closer to work or to public transportation, work with your own Realtor, your Buyers Agent who will work for YOU the buyer, the
agent who has listed the property and whose name is on the sales sign, is working for and in the
best interest of the Seller. Buyers Agents are usually free to the Buyers as they when the property is listed by a brokerage and on the multiple listing service are paid at the closing by the seller's side.
Do not do this on your own, such valuable service, if you like a list of all the advantages to work with
a buyers agent, e-mail me and I send it to you, also if you need the recommendation for a good local
Realtor I can do that too.

John Arendsen answered:
Some folks are actually looking for manufactured homes to rent and not necessarily a home to purchase. I do not appreciate RE professionals trying to change someones mind on an open forum or make them feel bad or embarrassed because they choose to purchase a manufactured home and rent the space instead of purchasing one.

Believe it or not a lot of folks were former homeowners who may have lost their home and cannot afford nor desire to purchase another home. Still others have sold their homes to downsize for one reason or another and just rent. Or perhaps others are just starting out and prefer to tread lightly before making a commitment that could impact their quality of life for years to come.

At any rate to better answer your question 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. But you should also make sure you have the home inspected by an experienced manufactured home inspector and not just any home inspector.

Make sure the home is level and that the pier and pad assemblies are in good shape. Also make sure the vapor barrier and insulation are in tact and not ripped or lying on the ground. Also make sure the home has an approved set of Earthquake Resistant Bracing under it as that area is in a Zone 4 seismic area.

I am not a lawyer, so I can't give legal advice. My recommendation is that you consider selling the house if you have a hardship and can't afford the payments. If you don't have a hardship, consider refinancing the mortgage. Let me know if I can help. ... more
