I just came across your post.

Have you found what you need yet?

Also, are you going short-term due to really looking to buy without being locked into a long-term lease? If so, I would like to assist you in using these months to monitor the market so you have a better feel where you want to be when ready to switch to home-buyer mode. ... more

Mary McNair answered:
How much of a budget are you trying to stay within?

Can you pay cash? Banks generally don't want to make loans on properties with mobile homes since part of the loan's security can be so easily removed from the property to be sold or destroyed.

If you need to finance, we'll want to focus on modular or stick-built homes that are on fixed foundations.

Give me a call if you're not already working with a buyer's agent and I'll get started sending you information on options specific to what you are looking for (price, location, bedrooms, baths).

I'm so sorry to see that nobody has responded to your information request. I'm not sure how I missed seeing it before.

Have you received assistance yet with your home search? I would be honored to work with you if you don't already have a buyer's agent.

Just give me a call to confirm what you are needing and I'll get started sending property details for your intial review. I'll then save the search criteria for automatic updates when prices change, or properties are new or back on the market. This will help you stay on top of your options and possibly beat the competition to the property that's meant for you.

I look forward to hearing from and assisting you.

Hi Jennifer,
You would not be able to lease a foreclosure. The mortgage companies that own those properties only have those listed for sale, not rent.

Don Tepper answered:
You should be able to determine who the owner is by checking with your county. Most counties have the ownership information online. If you're asking about Baldwin County, for example, here's the link: http://qpublic7.qpublic.net/ga_search.php?county=ga_baldwin Otherwise, do an online search for "[County name] tax assessor."

So if the county records show that "Joe Smith" is the owner and you're talking to Joe Smith, that's a good thing. (Just to be sure, ask Joe for some identification so you can verify his identity.) If you're talking to "Bob Williams," ask Bob if he's the owner. If he says yes, it would appear he's not telling the truth. (Public records do have a time lag, so it's possible that Bob bought the property in the last month.) Now, Bob could be representing Joe. If Bob is a licensed agent, you're very likely safe. But if Bob just says that he's a good friend of Joe's, that a warning sign.

If you're not dealing with the owner in person . . . in today's scam-filled climate, assume it's a scam. Especially if you're just communicating by e-mail. Especially if the "owner" claims he's out of town or out of the country. Especially if the "owner" is offering a really great deal on the rental. Especially if the "owner" says that as soon as you send him the deposit, he'll send you the keys. That scenario screams "SCAM!!"

So: Deal with the person directly, or through a trusted intermediary such as a Realtor. Even if you're dealing with someone directly, face-to-face, make sure he/she is who he/she claims to be. Don't do the deal at your local McDonald's or Starbucks; make sure that the person you're dealing with really has access to the property. And ask for identification. (Embarrassed to? Don't be. Any landlord will ask YOU for YOUR identification.)

Hope that helps.

you can easily search the Tax assessor website to findout the name of teh buyer. You have to be very careful of internet scams, Many listings are being listed by people claiming to be the owners and they are asking for deposites to be wired to them. we just helped the authority to locate one guy on craig's list doing exactly the same. Be sure to do your homework before you start wiring money. ... more
