The high number of foreclosed properties and repo homes for sale had made it difficult for people in most areas of Washington to acquire a home or rent an apartment. Some cope with the housing problem by opting to live in mobile home communities. One of these communities is currently facing eviction due to safety concerns.
The attention of city authorities in Lakewood has temporarily shifted away from the significant problems related to foreclosed homes for sale in Tacoma, WA. Right now, their most immediate concern is the health and safety of around 60 families living in mobile properties at the Fir Acres Mobile Home Park.
Currently, the whole area is under threat of ending as one of the thousands of foreclosed homes in Washington. Authorities are reportedly planning to evict the residents before the month of August ends unless a plan is formulated that will address the safety problems in the park and also come up with money that will finance the safety works.
Residents at Fir Acres have stated that if the city pushed through with its plan, they will be left with nowhere to go. According to most of the park's residents, they cannot afford to rent apartments or buy another home, even low-priced repo homes for sale.
According to city authorities, the mobile home park has had issues with safety for a long time. Inspectors have revealed that there are a lot of safety hazards within the park and bringing the whole area up to code could cost a lot of money. Some officials have cautioned that any move by the city to take over the renovation and improvement of the park will require a lot of dollars. They added that the city does not even have enough money to buy foreclosure homes to solve the problem of blight in some neighborhood.
Meanwhile, residents would likely suffer the most should the plan is put into action. Most of them have admitted that their mobile homes are too old to be moved and they really do not have the money to rent a place or buy repo homes for sale. They further stated that most of the mobile homes in the park are over 20 years old, which makes it highly unlikely that they will be accepted at other parks.
