  • I would want to know if it was built at the site or if it was a trailer house that looks like a house built on the site cause there is a differnce the trailer house thing banks hate to touch but the interest rate is higher and the get damage easier in floods, tornado ect. and make sure its not in a flood zone cause most inc companies will not touch it, my sister and brother learned a lesson and now every yr they have to deal with floods and replacing siding on the home when they thought it was a real house when it wasn't.

  • nope, I persoanlly don't think I could buy a home that was being taken from another family. . but I already own a home too, so if I didn't maybe I would feel differnet.
