Hello Amanda,

I would recommend driving around the community at different times of the day. Check it out in the morning and evening. Also during the week and weekends. Majority of the owners in the community do occupy their properties.

Please feel free to call or email me with any questions you may have.

If you are talking about new construction "inventory homes" on my experience you can get about 5% below asking price plus up to 10% in closing cost.
Builders prefer to contribute to closing cost because it does not drop the value for the community .

Most agents put in the HOA fees as a monthly rate. Check with your buyers agent to confirm how listings you are interested in were entered into the multiple listing service.

Hi Gojo,

Many of these are purchased with a title similar to a automobile title.

Try locating the VIN number and get with the Department of Motor Vehicles for a copy of the title.

It's usually located near the circuit breaker panel.

The owners may have to sign an affidavit of ownership.

Hope that helps You!!!

Kelli, your best bet is to find a local Realtor to assist you. Do you have a specific property address or MLS#? The agent will need that info. If you need the name of an agent in your area, let me know. ... more

Lenders will need to check your credit to qualify you for a loan. I recommend that you talk with some mortgage brokers to see if they have any loans you would qualify for. If not, ask them what you need and starting working on building up your credit. Good luck! ... more

Please contact a lender or a Real Estate Professional in your area. Here in my area of Colorado, the counties that are available (designated rural) for the USDA loan are Clear Creek County and Park County.
These are wonderful loans and readily available. The best part is that we can close them quicker than conventional loans.

The county appraisal has nothing to do with market value.
The best way to determine market value is to look at recent sold comparables. This will tell you what people are actually willing to pay for a similar property at this time. ... more

NA answered:

Currently there are 10 homes leased that are entered as being manufactured homes. The rent ranges from approximately $900-$1200 a month.

Are you looking to place your home for rent or do you need a property? One other thing to consider is specific zip codes in this area, as that can have a slight impact. However, the price range above would be a good rule of thumb.

Please contact me directly if I can offer further help.

Gregory Cook answered:
You can check with your county assessor but prop 13 established your homes value. Normally the assessment doesn't change unless you sell it OR if you are like many California homeowners and had a reassessment down, the assessment could change when and/or if values increase.
Check with your County Assessor is the best advice I can give.
Good Luck!

You'll never know till you try. Consult a Realtor who you can feel comfortable with and put in an offer. You'll probably get a counter offer. Sometimes just the fact that it is cash could be a very strong motivation to sell.
Good luck!

Bank is just trying to get the most for their money. But shaving $4,000 off the asking price isnt much. You sure the comps reflect $188,000 and not more. I am suprised the bank only dropped that low.
