Christopher Fritts answered:
The tax assessment is the determination of the market value of a piece of property including land and improvements. Assessments are usually prepared as of a specific date each year and are typically based on recent sales of comparable properties in the area. Local governments use your assessment as the basis for the annual property tax bill. The tax assessment can be lower than market value in some areas. This does not have anything to do with the listing price of the home unless, of course, the seller decides to list their home at the assessed value. ... more

Expenses generally include taxes, utilities, and space rent if it's in a park or on leased land. Space rent often covers some utilities as well, depending on the park. Also a mortgage payment if financing is used. Mobile homes are a very affordable option to home ownership. Feel free to contact me to discuss further and we can start looking for a home that fits your criteria. / 775-473-8903 ... more

Custom is the key, you have to be specific to determine a price or you will get allowances and be responsible above them.

Roof - asphalt - rubber - tile - shingle
Windows - Anderson - Pella - marvin - (different levels within each)
Siding - Brick - Clapboard - Shingle - stucco
Cabinets - can run from 40k to 150k
Interior trim the skys the limit
Smarthouse wiring 50000 - 250000
Landscaping $$$$
Pool - tennis - sportcourt

Appliances 25000 - 45000

and the list goes on....

Good luck

Unfortunately, the house is included in a Bankruptcy, so, in affect it's in legal limbo. The status of this residence may not be decided for several months or possibly years.

Had Enough answered:
You should be able to build your custom home with top of the line product and appliances from $200 to $230 per sq. ft.

Anyone quoting you $300 to $500 are builders or real estate agents. This is unless your putting gold fixtures in every bath room and using gold leaf paint on the walls.

The insanity has got to stop. The bankers are not ripping people off its the builders and real estate agents.

good luck. if you have money you should be in the drivers seat.

Don Robertson answered:
Are you sure that you want to build? Resale sale prices are so low now, both in Nevada and California. You could buy a very nice existing home of you choice for far less than the cost of building one (probably 30-40 percent less). You could visit a new home subdivision in that area and see what they are selling for (price per square foot). Good luck. ... more

Patricia and Roger Jewett answered:

Generally speaking, we can make appointments to see occupied properties with a 24 hour notice. Tenant occupied properties require 48 to 72 hours notice. Vacant properties can be viewed with minimum notice. Bank owned (foreclosure) properties are always vacant. Short sale properties may or may not be vacant and the same is true for properties not selling short.

Whenever you decide to purchase, the timelines for tradtional sales, short sales and foreclosures all vary. You need to determine your timeframe for a purchase so that you are not trying to fill an immediate need with a property that may take months and months to purchase.
