I have a client that wants me to appraise a 4 acre tract semi rural subject to construction of a Modular home. When i pulled the deed and restrictive convenants I found the following: Home must be at least 1800 SF - no problem subject is 2600 SF much of the normal restrictions - no junk vehicles(remember I'm in redneck country), only one dwelling per lot, etc. Tracts cannot be subdivided without prior approval Then I noticed one of the last lines states that "only STICK BUILT home". It continues to state no mobile homes or MODULARS. Here's the problem. The exact same home was construction on an adjacent 4 acre tract and is subject to the same restrictions. I contacted the county inspections department and they said they would call me back in about an hour (2 days ago) still nothing. 5 minutes after I hung up with them the real estate consultant the wrote the restrictions called. This guy is also an appraiser with questionable ethics. He that the owners allowed the home to be placed there because when they learned that it was being built it was already 80% complete. Honestly it's the nicest home in the area. He said they would fight it blah blah blah. Before I call my client and I wanted to see what responses I get here. I've always been told by real estate agents, instructors and lawyers that you could not descriminate against modular construction homes. In fact the city was required by the state to allow 3 to be placed in a prominate neighborhood. Finally does anyone know the facts about modular home discrimination.
