Re: laminate flooring

We are cinsidering puting a wood laminate floor in the living room and down the hallway of our Southern Energy double wide. Is there any particular reason you recommend laying the laminate perpenduclar (across) rather than parallel to the marrage line? Because the laminate floor is a "floating" floo...

Re: Mobile Home Donation

Unless you pay off the balance of the mortgage you can't donate it or give it away. You can only sell it and the mortgage company will get paid off at the closing.

Re: Finance question

If you own the property you want to put the home on, you can use the equity you have in the property as part or all of the "down payment." Just make your lender know you have equity and you want to use it.

Re: Manufactured Housing Enterprises Inc in Bryan OH MHE, Inc

I researched manufactured homes for years before we bought our home. One of the best sources for our research was Grissom's books. The price of the book could not only answer your questions but save you a lot of $$$$.

Re: Noisy heating & Air conditioning

Our fan went bad (very noisy)within the first year. We contacted the company that insaled the unit and came out and replaced the fan for free as it was still under warantee with them, not the dealership. Thank you LinAir.

Re: SUCCESS on refinancing

I'd be interested in seeing what you did and what interest rate you ended up with. We bought in 2008 and our loan is around 7% so if we could reduce that a couple or three % it may be worth refinancing.

Re: help

I did a lot of research before we bought our MF home and Southern Estates is a good home. You are right to upgrade to the 2x6 exterior walls with added insullation package as it will save you a lot of $$ on heating and air conditioning especially if you are in the South. You should also consider upg...

Re: Help needed to trace & obtain title for a home that "does not exist"

Once the home is tied to the land don't they retire the title or does that depend on the state? If the title is retired is it still possible to get a copy from the county accessor? If the title is retired why would a seperate title be required for the sale of the land/home?

Re: skeptical

I'd start by checking my and my sister's, credit scores. Then I'd buy Grissom's books which are available for a very reasonable cost on this site. After you have read Grissoms books TWICE go out and start talking to some manufactured home dealers.
