All about Modular homes
Finding a Mobile and Modular Homes in the Bay Area
Presented by Scott Harrison Specialist  510-388-4536
California Mobile home, search homes for sale, review information about buying financing
lenders and insurance agents for all types of mobile and pre fabricated homes.

Buying a mobile home is different from buying a home or condo.  Most Bay Area parks owners require a minimum income of  3 x the $400-800 space rent plus 3 x the any loan payment to qualify to live in their park.  If you planning to finance a mobile home that is not new or attached to a permanent foundation regular banks and mortgage brokers can not help you because banks treat them as personal property like a car.  The average interest rates on mobile and modular homes is between 9-11.5%. The single wide mobiles epically the older ones are even harder to get loans on. (List of lenders are in the left margin)
  May Communities have rent control limiting space rent increases.  Building Codes are regulated by the HUD and not by local government thus quite different from your standard house.
  A modular or manufactured homes have been built so that they are often difficult to tell them from a stick built home.  Finding a space in a local mobile home park takes years on a waiting list and most often folks simply buy an old mobile and pull it out so they can put in your new modular home.  When buying this type of homes the parks space rent can very widely with in the same park and some of the newer home can be on the property taxes roles as well.  If you are placing a new Manufactured home on a lot of land it must be attached to a permanent foundation to get ordinary bank financing. 
  Renting a modular or mobile home in a bay area is seldom allowed by park management.  Owner is expected to live in the home.  An example a daughter wants to buy a mobile home for her mom would not be allowed in most parks because the daughter does not live there.
  Also there are two kinds of parks, one designated for Senior and the other known as Family.  The Family parks accept occupants of all ages and the senior parks only allow ownership by persons over 55 years old and seldom occupants under 18 years old.
  See the links below for regulations, forms, building standards and installation tips.


FEDERAL CONSTRUCTION AND SAFETY STANDARDS
Since mid-1976, all manufactured homes have been constructed to meet the federal building standards adopted and administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. This national code is called the National Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards. The code regulates manufactured home design and construction, strength and durability, fire resistance, and energy efficiency. It also prescribes the performance standards for the heating, plumbing, air conditioning, thermal, and electrical systems.
