Following up on a popular story from last Friday, ManufacturedHomeLivingNews.com is showcasing Saw move star Betsy Russell’s $1,999,999 luxury pad overlooking the Pacific in posh Malibu, California. Numerous media outlets picked up on the real estate listing in exclusive Pointe Dume Club manufactured home land lease community. But LAist, TMZ and others often missed the point or disrespected a home and lifestyle they were simultaneously gushing about. “We have an opportunity to turn this into a teachable moment for the media and public.” trade publisher and consultant L. A. “Tony” Kovach said. “Check out this story and dazzling photos at this link, but also share it via social media and your media outlet!   This is an opportunity to sell more homes in your market, because some of those who may see your emailed link, Facebook post or Pinterest pin could realize the quality and appealing lifestyles that our industry is all about.” ##

Stunning 2 Million dollar manufactured home, but TMZ and media struggle to ‘get it’

August 30th, 2013 Comments off

betsy-russell-saw-star-1,999,999-manufactured-home-'mobile-home'-credit-redfin-mls-posted-daily-business-news-Saw star Betsy Russell recently listed her lavish, custom manufactured home overlooking the Pacific Ocean in ritzy Malibu for just a buck under a cool 2 million. TMZ and other media outlets both raved and ranted. “On top of the nearly $2 million price tag, the HOA fees will run the new owner a whopping $3,565 a month. That’s another $42,780 a year.” The media has little notion of the advantages that millionaires such as Russell, or more millions of owners of more modest means have with modern manufactured homes, including those placed in land lease communities. What sounds like a lot of money for site fees (aka “lot rent”), in many jurisdictions means you have little or no real estate taxes, and may have little or no personal property taxes. This is why the listing agent can correctly boast that it is the most amazing home-with-a-view value under 2 million dollars in Malibu, CA. For those who don’t know that market, another manufactured home sold in the same community for 1.1 million. ManufacturedHomeLivingNews.com will showcase Russell’s manufactured castle as a “featured home” as part of an article which will include 17 photos.
