Hello Cindiesue, how much are you paying in rent and how many bedrooms? What is the maximum payment you are looking to achieve?

The mobile homes in parks usually always can not be rented out but some parks do. The mobile homes are harder to finance as well especially if they are older than June of 1976 or single wide. If you were to buy one you would also have the space rent on top of the payment.

The rentals in San Jose start from $1,295 for 1bd 1ba apt. The purchase start from 299k for 1bd 1ba condo. You may qualify to buy with minimal out of pocket expenses with down payment and closing cost assistance programs.

Are you looking for a condo, townhome, single family residence or only mobile homes? What price range, number of bedrooms, bathrooms, etc. What are your fico scores and how much do you have to invest towards the purchase?

If you figure out what cities/zip codes you are considering, minimum number of bedrooms and the maximum payment/price you are looking to achieve any agent can email listings to fit your search criteria. Your email address is needed to set you up for the automatic daily updates.

You may consider 5% down Jumbo with a minimum 720 fico score from 424k up to 1.5 million and 10% down from a minimum 680 fico score and up to 3 million. You will need 20% down to purchase over 3 million.

Your qualifications will be determined by your credit profile, debt to income ratios, fico scores, loan program and how much you want to invest into the down payment and closing costs. Your fico scores can be raised within 3-4 days in most cases to qualify for programs, rates and terms as necessary.

You can sue the builder, in fact nowadays you can sue whoever you want to sue. I would suggest that you read all documents that you have signed and bring to your attorney as well.

Unless you own the land, it will not be considered Real Estate. You cannot get traditional mortgage financing. A mobile home is consider more like an auto loan.

Maybe I am reading this incorrectly. If the manufactured home has surrendered title and converted to real estate by combining the mfg home and the land, you have a chance. ... more

Hi,

Was there a sump pump in place under the house for removing water when it reaches a certain level?

Also, you can talk to a foundation professional that can discuss de-humidifiers, vents, and other topics as needed for a particular situation.

Kind regards,

Arpad

Is this new agent under the same brokerage as the previous agent? I would suggest that you read your contract again before deciding to work with another realtor/brokerage.

Greentekfirst answered:
Property liens can be Involuntary (I.E. HOA, judgment, mechanic, tax etc.) or Voluntary (mortgage, refinance, home loan etc. ).

Both have to be satisfied/paid in full before title can be conveyed properly. In most cases, Involuntary liens can be negotiated with the creditor for a smaller amount due to the nature of the encumbrance.

First mortgages (AKA senior liens) always take priority over second mortgages (junior liens) in a foreclosure proceeding or auction.
