Re: How tall is the inside of our mobile home.

I live in a MH from the 70s so it's only 7 feet tall. On the bright side the ceilings were a cinch to paint, even for the trip i didn't need a ladder. My back door is less than 6 feet and I am 6 feet all, but I'm used to it and never hit my head. the bedrooms have ceiling fans without lights and I c...

Re: It's funny how some people don't know what mobile homes

The stricter the community rules are enforced the happier the good residents will be living there. In a way I don't agree with this. Some rules are just made to be broken, or sometimes people bend a rule that does not really affect anyone or the community. I know when I moved in here they allowed m...

Re: It's funny how some people don't know what mobile homes

No, I really don't want to start trouble That is the most common reason indivuales use to avoid being responsible for their community and the number one reason park owners are unable to maintain the standards of their community. Residents then often blame the owner for the deterioration when in fac...

Re: It's funny how some people don't know what mobile homes

[There is a home across the way that has a lot of young people either living or visiting there. One young jerk loves to get into his car and rev the engine for 10 minutes before he goes anywhere. Have you reported them to the park owner yet. No, I really don't want to start trouble since I recently...

Re: It's funny how some people don't know what mobile homes

Hey now, watch the use of that "T" word!! :lol: Greg Yes I hate that word. My friend who was over used the work park and in a joking tone I told him it's a mobile home community. I've seen trailer parks and I don't live in one. A trailer park has dirt floor between the crowded in homes. We each hav...

60,000 to 80,000 single wide mobile homes, in a park, with lot rent ------ in Canada. Depending on the area I have seen mobiles (single wide) up here in parks sell for 150,000 or more. If well maintained ours do increase in value but usually only as a reflection of the updates. With surrounding sti...

What are the last plants that you bought?

I found a nice nursery nearby that had a lot of nice plants. Some of the old ones I bought a few weeks ago started dying, I think they were not getting enough sun, so I bought some new ones and placed those where they could get more sun to see if they will get better. I also bought two cherry tomato...

Re: It's funny how some people don't know what mobile homes

Redone mid 70s homes in our area usually sell between 60,000 and 80,000 depending on how "redone " they are. Homes or mobile homes? MH with land perhaps, but at a MH park or community with lot rent I know that even new ones depreciate a lot eventually. I think when my friend guessed he was thinking...

Re: Can we revisit painting the tub

I think you are supposed to reglaze a tub and not just paint it but it can depend on the material it is. At the last apartment I was at when I moved in there were a few cracks in the bottom of the tub and 3 years later most of the paint, or whatever they used was chipped away in large chunks.

It's funny how some people don't know what mobile homes cost

I had a friend over today for lunch and so he could see my new place. I asked him to guess how much it cost. He guessed $60,000, I told him less and he said $30,000. He was surprised when I told him it only cost me $2,900. :D I didn't really know how much they cost before I started pricing them eith...

Greg wrote:Well, on the plus side of it, with it broken out like that you can write it off on your income taxes!!

When I was in a park, they did not break it out.

Greg
So I guess it's better because they would charge you either way in the lot rent, so like you say it can be written off.

Do you have to pay property taxes for your MH lot?

and if so, if you don't mind saying how much is it? and is it on a lot or private property. I just moved in, in August and it was $9.25 a month for property pass thru taxes, whatever that is. Now it's almost doubling to $18.45 starting in January because of a new assessment. Out lot rent is going up...
