Yuma Park Model & Lot--Price Reduced to $89,900: OWC!


Recommended Posts

We are now officially listed with a Realtor and if you are in the area and have interest you can now easily gain access. Her name is Leslie Moore, Yuma Foothills Realty, 928 271-8840 cell; 928 259-5219 office; lesliemoore1@aol.com

 

We’re making this as easy as we can, folks—we’re willing to carry the financing for 15 years, fully amortized, fixed rate, no prepayment and also will make it assumable to another buyer in the event you want to sell before it is paid off in 15 years (with a review of interest rate at time of sale).

 

If you’re headed to Yuma this winter quit wasting your rental dollars if you like it there! This is a little dollhouse in a wonderful location you can secure without the hassle of a formal loan application and fees. We just hate to see it sitting vacant; it really needs a new owner who wants fun in the sun!

Yuma Park Model and Lot--$95,000 or **Trade

Regroup! We have decided given the current over-inventory situation in Yuma not to list our property with a Realtor at this time. We will continue to offer it for sale through our own efforts. We plan to also continue to rent it each season until it sells.

 

If you’re a serious buyer who likes the looks of what we’ve done, feel free to contact us. If you’re looking for the most desperate-seller-low-price available in the Foothills, we’re not it. We’re willing to work with someone to the best of our ability but we will not consider ridiculous offers. Our current price is well below our actual hard costs of building this (yes we developed the lot entirely through the sweat of our brow) so already represents a significant discount and is what we consider to be good value for our section of the Foothills. You could not replace what is here for anywhere near our asking price. Keep in mind there are 30 phases in the Foothills; some of which were done decades ago with commiserate aging and decrepit properties and neighborhoods. A low price could get you a low-grade property and location, so yes you can find lots from the $40,000’s, but do a comparison and you will find the value difference glaringly obvious.

 

**Please note we are very open to doing an “even Steven” trade of this property for a home of equal value in Central Wisconsin. We’re not interested in bare land or lots, but if you desire your place in the desert sun and have a home that would make a good investment property for us in Wisconsin, we’re all ears. (Trade property must be free and clear of any liens or mortgages with no major HOA fees).

 

You can contact me at itchyhitchatyahoodotcom. We have a current tenant who is willing to vacate, so quick possession this season is available if you are in the area. Please follow this link to full details and pictures: http://itchyhitchwhatsnew.blogspot.com/2015/01/yuma-foothills-park-model-and-lot-95000.html

We are motivated sellers and look forward to your inquiries. Thanks!

I'm not Claudia and I'm sure she knows the market a whole lot better than I do, but this will be our 13th winter in Yuma in an RV park but are familiar with the RV lots in the Foothills. In fact before we left last spring, we looked at several lots but passed at that time. If you look at Craigs List Yuma under the "Real Estate for Sale" you will see numerous lots on the market. Also check out Realtor.com. There is all sorts of lots for sale on there. Riding thru the Foothills there are private and realtor signs everywhere. And this winter should really get interesting based on the Canadian dollar value. A number of years ago when the "pump jacks" were running in Alberta they were buying condos, lots, you name it. Well this winter could different. I do know that there have been quite a few Canadians in our park cancelling out.

Yuma has had a hard time recovering since the great recession. Excess inventory refers to the fact that there are more sellers wanting to sell than buyers willing to buy. Hence, a buyer's market. But everyone knows if you are looking for a property for yourself the sale is generally driven by emotion. Does it appeal to you? Can you picture yourself there, enjoying the patio with friends; margaritas and 70 degree temperatures on Christmas day? Next day you jump on your ATV and go two blocks to access the desert where you run all day, visiting ghost towns and vistas opening to 70 mile views. After that you need to run into Algodones because your old crown fell off and you can have it replaced at 1/3rd the price and while you're there you might as well pick up your year's supply of that daily med you need, also at about 1/4th the price and without needing to see your doctor first.

 

And Bob, while I realize for 13 years you may have been able to do that from that RV park you're in, you're also 10 foot from your neighbor and being told what you can and can't do while you are there. Some of us just like to know the dirt beneath our feet is our own and especially some of us RVers who like the fact of a "home place" and being able to store some of those things we can't take on the road with us. Some of us like the idea of neighborhood and being able to party and connect with those who've surrounded us for ten years. We never were one much for RV parks; if we couldn't be boondocking we figured owning the land was the next best thing! And it was!

 

There's a lot to recommend Yuma to the RVer. They've been coming there for a long time and will continue to do so. Regardless of markets, some properties always will sell. We're hoping ours is one of them. :rolleyes: Thank you for the compliments about it being nice, Moisheh. There's someone out there who will love it I'm sure. It's a great spot and a really happy, light, bright little house! We wouldn't be selling if we could use it.

We first saw this lot when friends stayed there one winter, and it is just beautiful. Claudia & her husband did a first-class job on the improvements, and if we were still wintering in Yuma, would VERY seriously consider purchasing it. It's listed at a great price, too -- another friend bought a vacant lot, same size, with absolutely nothing on it -- not even fully fenced -- about 3 years for $75,000. The area is quiet & relaxed, folks have real pride of ownership in their lots/houses, and we made great friends all around us the 5 winters we spent there. Can't beat the location for walking ATVing, or Jeeping in the desert!

My wife and I are fortunate enough to be at Claudia's Yuma home/lot for Feb/Mar. Our first long stay in the Foothills during Snow Bird season:)!

 

Really a nice layout, with obvious attention to detail as they laid out the private patio and landscaping. Great parking for big rigs, and still lots of space in the front with a circle drive for other vehicles. The neighborhood is as described, with lots of nice people enjoying the area, and each other. The homes and lots are all well maintained, which always adds to a neighborhood.

 

The Park Model adds additional flexibility for a future owner. Either to live in and enjoy, and set up for even the hot months. Or to rent out and cover payments and other expenses while staying in your rig.

 

We have many friends from San Diego that are combo River & Desert Rats, and have forwarded the info on this lot to them to help spread amongst others that are now ready to have a more permanent location to visit while in the Yuma area:)!

 

Us? Not the right time of us, as we already have other permanent spots. Though I could see this being a good investment, one that will carry itself well, and with more and more Baby Boomers hitting the road every year - the Yuma opportunity for buying will be behind us within a few years.

 

Salute to our Host and Hostess, and many thanks for letting us rent this great site!!
