Buying a new Mobile Home

Post by adam baggett » Mon Feb 17, 2003 7:19 pm

I live in Georgia, I am looking to buy a mobile home from a local dealer. I don't have anything to put down for down payment, maybe $500. I want to buy the home and put it on some land I found around here. Can you do a loan where I can buy the Home and Land. Even if I don't currently own the land. I spoke with the finance guy at the lot, and he said my credit was OK, something like a 600 beacon, or something another. Do think there is a possibilty I could buy a home.
Thanks,Adam
Georgia

My husband and I are in the process of buying land in Citrus County Florida for a winter home. Once we do that then we would like to buy a mobile. Neither one of us have ever owned a mobile. We would like to have everything in place by the fall of 2003. We are also open to buying a previously owned mobile but have concerns about it being moved. Can they be moved safely without concern of damage?
Can anyone recommend a good quality built mobile for the Florida area mentioned? Can they be placed on a foundation and if so how is this done?
I have been doing some research and believe I have a good idea of what we want in the home(construction.) We are more concerned with quality then with the looks. Would greatly appreciate any advance anyone can offer.
Thank you

Used homes can be moved with out problems if the moving crew is quality...

In Florida you have the largest available choice of any state in the union...High quality could be Jacobson Homes, Homes of Merit and Palm Harbor from Plant City..In addition to them you have probably 20 more manufacturers that are well represented in Florida..
Good Luck

http://community.webtv.net/Vonlenn/SILVERCRESTHOME

"Like thousands of ordinary people, we bought a new home and only wished to settle down and enjoy it. Instead, we were forced to embark upon an expensive and stressful full time battle with a builder, and the equally unaccountable warranty company." (Silvercrest Manufacture Home) "Shoddy construction has become a nationwide epidemic. Homeowners quickly find out that fighting this battle is very time consuming, expensive, and frustrating. Countless complaints against homebuilders and home warranty companies are hidden in binding arbitration and confidentiality agreements that the public never sees, so the public cannot make an educated choice in choosing a builder. The cost of litigation, on a playing field that is nowhere near level, is prohibitive to almost all homeowners. The homebuilding industry lobbies behind our backs to reduce regulations that would protect consumers. Homeowners don't find out what is going on until it is too late, and they have spent a great deal of time, energy and money researching it, and fighting their case.
