I must have the only mobile home in history that appreciated the second I had it pulled off the lot! I never heard such a thing. I paid 40K for this dump in 2001 and yet according to the assessors office as of 2002 my home is worth 55K, and it keeps going up to being worth almost 77K this year. Now that is just the building itself...not including the land because I dont own the land! The trailer is a doublewide but it isnt bricked in, it isnt even underpinned. It is simply sitting on cinder blocks and tied down with the straps. I dont have a deed, I have a title just like for a car. Two of them in fact...one for each side...lol. I wish someone would give me that much for the place. I would sell it and be out of here so fast their head would spin. If doublewides appreciated the minute you pulled them onto a lot, then folks would go buy them, pull them into a park, and sell them for more than they paid for them...DUH! What a way to make a quick buck. I could have turned a quick 15 thousand in a few months if that worked. I went down and threw a fit over the value. Seems they will send an assessor out to look at it but they said they assess it at "fair market value" which I have no clue how they arrive at that. I mean if it is replacement cost...well that could be a problem. I saw something that said they value it at replacement cost...well...it may cost me more to replace it but I dont think that is fair. I dont want to replace it...lol. That may make sense for a house...not a mobile home. Good lord...Im not even insured!
