Welcome to The Nelson Homes Fargo, Moorhead, Grand Forks, Wahpeton, Detroit Lakes, Eastern North Dakota and Western Minnesota webpage. We buy, list, and sell, mobile and manufactured homes. We put over 30 pictures of each home on the webpage so you can see what you are going to look at before you go look. No surprises. Please give us a call to visit with us about a home, schedule an appointment to look at homes, list your home or for us to buy your home.
If you are selling a home, please call me for a free consultation. Absolutely no obligation.
If you have any questions about anything, please call us.
IN ALL CASES, THE PICTURES DO NOT DO THE HOME JUSTICE!!!

As you see, all the homes are sold or sale pending (which are sold unless something unforeseeable happens) Below are "coming soon" homes. These will be the only contract for deed homes that I will probably have until next fall.
For people wanting to move homes or buy a different home that is not contract for deed., I start getting those out in mid January or February.
What is Sale Pending?
Sale Pending is where there is an agreement to purchase but has not closed. They are waiting for the possession date, a move or something else. For all practical purposes, it is sold. Occasionally, they do fall through but rarely. If you are interested, please contact me to do what they would call a back up offer. That way, if it were to come back for sale, I would contact you immediately to buy the home.
Contract for Deed is where the seller (in our case, it is the parks) of the home finances the home much the same as a bank would. You must have a down payment and the monthly payments are set up for the time it takes to fully pay off the home.
It is meant for people who are stable who may have had credit challenges in the past but it is behind them. You must have sufficient income to make the payments, a good rental history and no recent problems that would make them believe that you have a cash flow problem. Recent evictions and foreclosures will probably generate a turndown. Criminal problems are dealt with on an individual basis.
Each park has it's own criteria for who they will accept. They do not have a minimum credit score. They want to make sure that your success is likely. Late payments are not tolerated under any circumstances.
I don't anticipate getting very many contract for deed homes in the future. The park has bought homes and brought them into the park to sell to fill the park space. Brookwood and Riviera Heights have 1 space each left. I anticipate those spaces will be filled with someone moving a home that they own into the park. I will be bringing in 14 or 16 x 70 homes to fill lots that are smaller. That will be the only homes that I think that I will have contract for deed this year. The problem is that 70 foot homes are hard to come by.
The park owned homes are the only contract for deed homes that I have. I don't get individual sellers who want to sell contract for deed. The only parks that I have that does it are Riviera Heights, Countryside and Brookwood. I don't have any in Buena Vista, Meadowpark or Edgewood.
