Not sure where or how you are tracking this property. The link you provided leads to information from public records.

This home is listed for sale, and currently shows as pending (which means a contract has been accepted by the seller). It is a short sale. According to the MLS, the original price was $380,000, but has been RAISED to $405,000 which is the price, according to the listing, that was approved by the short sale lender.

I do see that the price was increased in the middle of the listing period. This might have been due to the short sale lender's desire to market the property at a higher price, which they often do even when the price they dictate is not supported by the market. It appears they finally realized that $495,000 was way too much for the property and approved a sales price of $405,000.

If you are interested in this property or any other property in this area, you would be well served to work with a Realtor to identify properties that are currently available for sale. That Realtor could try to get information about the strength of the current offer on this home.

Good luck in your home buying pursuits.

Jannette - I checked again - this property is only for sale for $750,000. Trulia has a link to a company that promises "rent to own" IF you can put at least 10% down - that would be $75,000 on this house. BE CAREFUL, this is new and may not be totally legit.

RealtyTrac is reporting this property as a "Possible Foreclosure" with an estimated value of $620,780. HOWEVER, this property is NOT FOR SALE. Owner did recent title transfer so he is obviously trying to save the property from foreclosure. If it were for sale, it would be a short sale since the balance owing is over $700,000.

My suggestions - concentrate on properties where the seller WANTS TO SELL and do not waste your time with short sales.

If you would like more information on this property, or other properties that are for sale - please do not hesitate to contact me. I worked in West Covina for over 10 years - I know the area.

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. You 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.
