That's a question that's hard to answer in a blog. I'd recommend you find a Realtor you're comfortable with, go meet them in person and discuss the entire process of buying a home.

There are no HOA fees listed, however there are varying land lease fees. Are you looking for something for yourself or for investment?

If you're serious about pursuing this or any other home that is currently on the market or even not yet on the market, I suggest you get with a Realtor to help you. Search out friends for referrals or use on of the professionals who've already answered this question before me. That way, you'll get up to the minute info and not waste any time surfing the web on sites like this one. Good luck.

I am assuming that you are not working with a Buyers Agent? Am I correct? You really should, there are so many, really many advantages to a buyer to work with his own committed Buyers Agent, a Realtor, experienced and knowledgeable in the market area you are interested in and your one stop real estate resource and guidance. Do not do this on your own. A buyers agent requires from you the buyer to be loyal to one trusted Realtor and to commit to just that one agent with open communication and that agent will consequently answer all your questions, assist in finding the right property for YOU, arrange showings, make suggestions and recommendations for each property viewed, and when ready to make and offer your personal buyers agent will provide you with a detailed market evaluation so that you will be able to provide a market friendly yet competitive offer on the home, and this agent you trust will then guide you through all the steps, paying attention to every details involved and guide you to a smooth and successful closing.

And by the way all that is required from you is your loyalty, no fees as the buyers agents of listings of another brokerage are paid by the seller's side at the closing table.... Do not do this on your own and
without the expertise of a professional on your side.

If you need a good recommendation for your area of interest e-mail me and I gladly forward a good
recommendation to you.
Good Luck to you

Bill: Assuming you are the same person that asked about the other Canyon Lake property, I will not provide all the details again. However, the POA dues for the property referenced in this question are slightly higher. Currently monthly dues are: $225.

For anyone else that stumbled here with similar questions regarding Canyon Lake HOA dues, etc., feel free to review a more detailed answer I recently provided here:

You will really need to 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 installed under it as much of California is in a Zone 4 seismic area:

To my knowledge, the 55+ communities can not legally change their age requirements. You can purchase when you are six months before your 55+ birthday.

If it's any consolation, there will come a day that you make it to 55 and can buy! ... more

Yes if it's new or nearly new. Otherwise, no. If you have a park picked out, ask the park management for the names of lenders. They'll know.

Otherwise, try for owner financing. Lots of mobile and manufactured homes are sold with owner financing.

Hope that helps.

if you had a foreclosure then FHA requires 3 years but under certain circumstances you maybe able to get a FHA loan within 2 years but it will take some extenuating circumstances. hope this helps.

Hi Ana,
Should I start assuming the house went to foreclosure here?
Was it you and your sisters principle residence?
Was there more than one loan on the property?
You question is unclear. perhaps you should get advice from an attorney.
Your question as it stands,... is best answered as, "Possibly."

Hi Krystle,

I don't know who may end up getting the listing for that home. If you will provide me with the address I am happy to keep an eye out for it and let you know as soon as it's available.

Often it takes a little time before it goes on the market. And it's common for the bank to require that it stay on the market for a certain number of days (maybe 3, 7, or 10) before they will accept an offer. They want the home to have pleanty of exposure so they can receive the highest and best price the market will bear.

I am happy to keep an eye out for it or any others for you. Just let me know.

If HOA is not established when purchasing a home then consider volunteer only if area is ever wants HOA can't force you join. However if you do have issues with neighbor HOA might not react as quickly.

I own homes where volunteer only I prefer to be friends with all. Up to you

Most are not expensive for annual dues
