Brown’s Manufactured Homes Bill  Created on Tuesday, 27 August 2013 10:39 SACRAMENTO - On Monday, August 26, 2013, legislation authored by Assemblymember Cheryl R. Brown (D-San Bernardino) was signed into law by Governor Edmund G. Brown, Jr. The bill, AB 379, preserves manufactured home financing by allowing manufactured homes to be converted into real property.

LOOK FOR A SPIKE IN THE HOUSING MARKET. BUT… WHERE IT COME’S FROM MAY SURPRISE YOU.
 
 
There is light at the end of the tunnel in the housing industry and it’s where you least expect it. Look for affordable housing to turn around strongly in ‘11. With the current and even future political climate where it is today big bucks are yet to be spent in this arena.
And exactly where you ask can we expect to see this anomaly occur? The Manufactured Housing Industry of course.  This industry has been overlooked, ridiculed, mis-represented, maligned, degraded, swept … (4 comments)

By golly Brad I think you've mustered fodder and inspiration for another post. Not that it will become a coveted feature but at least I'll get a lot off my chest.
This is in response to your: http://activerain.com/blogsview/1780154/the-activerain-featured-blog-post
I really do think it's the quality of what one writes and not the quantity of posts they contribute. I've written 118 posts including this one and have only been featured 7 times (Should I be discouraged about a 6 percent feature ratio? I think not). I started to get a little discouraged for a time but then I … (3 comments)

All I can say is thank you, thank you, thank you Active Rain. And a special thanks to two very warm and friendly Young ladies Lauren (I assume that's the correct spelling because that's how we spell our youngest Granddaughter's name) and Kerrie (also the name of our #2 of three daughters). These two very special young ladies helped make my first, but definitely not my last, AR event a very fun and fulling experience.

FHA is in full swing with the Manufactured Home industry on both forward and reverse re-fi's but there is a hook. The home must have an Engineered Certification, Affidavit of Affixture and if you're in California you will even need a 433a documentation verifying that your home is on a HUD compliant "Engineered Foundation System". Sound complicated? Not really. All you need is a Nationwide, one-stop shop, turn key, one size fits all company that can make the entire process perfectly painless instead of a pain it the A_____s. So whether you're a RE Broker, Lender or homewoner in … (0 comments)

It's all your fault Active Rain!
Thanks to you we've taken on a whole new posture in our industry and have literally launched ourselves light years ahead as one of the leading if not the leader in our industry in our field of expertise. Had it not been for folks like Brad Andershon and Lynn Harley we may have never forged through this whole concept of "Social Networking" and just gone about our "Business as Usual" approach and would have missed out on an opportunity to reach literally every state in the country with our unique niche and genuinely necessary service.

Daily Real Estate News  |   February 10, 2010  |   Share Denver-based BlackBox Logic has developed a database of more than 21 million mortgages not backed by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, or other government-sponsored agencies. The upstart scrutinizes raw loan data from trustees and issuers, flagging such information as whether a borrower is behind on payments or has a modification. It then blends that loan information with other databases that provide a credit score for the borrower and an estimate of residential value. BlackBox says it offers its data to the … (0 comments)
