While searching for a house, my parents have bought a mobile home which is 2 units down from my grandma’s mobile home. My dad is super excited to his new own place and my mom is happy for him too. She is just happy but not really excited. My mom’s attitude toward life has changed dramatically. She is not too happy for anything. Instead, she is calm to every situation. Her platelet count is going low, and she is experiencing bleeding episodes in her mouth and her nose. I am kind of worried a bit, but I know that we can’t give up and always hope for the best. She is half-way done with chemotherapy and has 2 more months to go. Cross our fingers.
Let’s go back to our mobile home. I really want to buy a house for them but my budget right now can’t even afford a house in Westminster, especially at the heart of Little Saigon. This mobile home’s location will allow my mom to walk to a supermarket, so it is really convenient for her. The mobile home park’s manager said that when my parents are older, they will have to live here anyway because they will not be able to drive. I totally agree with her statement. It is a really old unit (1960), with 2 Beds, 1 Bath. We bought it for $44,000 and monthly rent would be $795. It was sold by owner, and we didn’t go through agent so it was confusing at first with the buying process. Anyway, I figured it out by myself (so proud of me LOL). What you need are:
-Purchase agreement (can be downloaded free online)
-Bill of sale

I am still looking for my own house. I get into bidding wars, and I am waiting for one offer in Garden Grove. Buying a house in the U.S. is not an easy process, but I guess no pain no gain.
