Rancho Casitas Mobile Home Park In Indio Is HOT

rancho casitas mobile homes for sale

Last summer, I showed my buyer, Barbara, mobile homes in Rancho Casitas, a 55+ senior community in Indio, California. That’s me and Barbara in the photo above. As you can see, from the thermometer, the temperature that day was 120 degrees.

Barbara needed to move right away and was very motivated, so we braved the extreme summer heat and she found her dream mobile home in Rancho Casitas, in Indio, that day. We made a full-price offer, but it was rejected.

Because Rancho Casitas is such a popular community, and there weren’t many other homes on the market at the time, the seller rejected my buyer’s loan offer and decided to wait for a cash offer. And she got it. A full-price cash offer, at that.

Barbara found another beautiful manufactured home in Vista Montana, in Desert Hot Springs, but she was very disappointed to lose the Rancho Casitas home she first fell in love with.

The moral of the story is that mobile homes in the desert are very hot these days–all year long–even in the summer, which traditionally has had less competition, due to the difficulty of house hunting in 100-plus degree weather. Because of the affordability of mobile and manufactured homes today, they are very popular and the heat no longer keeps buyers away in summer.

So, if you’re seriously looking for a manufactured home in the desert, do yourself a favor and don’t wait until summer to start looking. Contact me today, to start your search while temps are still mild and the house hunting is much more pleasant.

Desert Mobile Home Parks With TENNIS COURTS

greater palm springs, ca mobile and manufactured home parks with tennis courts

The other day, I showed manufactured homes to a couple from out of town. They fell in love with a home in the 55+ community of Vista Montana.

Then, they asked me if the park had tennis courts. Unfortunately, it does not.

It turns out that the husband plays tennis and buying a mobile home in a neighborhood with tennis courts is at the top of his house hunt wish list. He forgot to mention it until after we started our search.

Nearly all of the parks, where you own the land, offer tennis. Many of the space rent parks do not.

If you’re a tennis player, looking for a mobile or manufactured home in a park that offers tennis, please contact me today, at the number listed above and I would be happy to help you with your search. Or click the link below, to search on your own.

643 Desert Area Mobile/Manufactured Homes SOLD In 2016

As 2016 comes to an end, it was a good year for mobile and manufactured home sales, here in the greater Palm Springs, Coachella Valley desert area.

According to the Desert Area MLS, 643 mobile and manufactured homes sold in 2016. In 2015, there were 543 mobile and manufactured homes sold here. That’s an increase of 100 homes sold this year.

As prices for single family homes and condos continue to increase, more and more buyers turn to mobile home purchases. That’s good for sellers, but not as good for buyers, since there is more competition and more competition pushes prices up.

The LOWEST Sale Price:
$8,500, 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, 1961, approximately 960 square feet, on the market for 179 days. Price per square foot was $8.85. Now that’s a bargain.

The HIGHEST Sale Price:
$399,000, 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 2016, approximately 1570 square feet, on the market for 96 days. Price per square foot was $248.41. Still $100,000 plus below where sales prices were before the real estate market crash of nearly a decade ago. So, another relative bargain.

As you can see, there are prices for every budget and there are more than 60 mobile and manufactured home communities to choose from, in nearly every one of our desert cities.

LGBT Social Events For Residents Of Ramon Mobile Park In Palm Springs

ramon park gay and lgbt friendly palm springs mobile homes for sale
One of the questions my LGBT home buyers ask me the most is whether or not certain neighborhoods and communities are gay-friendly. In California, by law, all communities must be LGBT friendly. Discrimination, of any kind, is not allowed in our state. It just so happens that Palm Springs, CA has a reputation for being one of the gay-friendliest cities in the world and our manufactured home communities are no exception.

On my walk this morning, in Palm Springs, I photographed this week’s bulletin board at Ramon Mobile Park. As you can see, one of the events is a Gay and Friends Social. When you buy a home in one of our mobile home communities, you’re also buying into a lifestyle, with social clubs and activities often being as important, or more important than the home, itself.

Please contact me today, at the number above, to see any mobile or manufactured home currently for sale in Ramon Park.
