Frequently Asked Questions

What does the application process consist of?

All prospective residents must complete a RealChek application, which you can print here or you can pick up in our office. Applications must be accompanied by a $20 (per applicant) check or money order made payable to RealChek.

Upon submission we will receive a credit report from TransUnion, information about your past rental history, and a score (from 0-10) based on this history. Things that affect this score adversely are: reporting false information, court cases against you/evictions, late payments, unauthorized people or pets, complaints, failure to maintain rental property, and/or damage reports.

A score of 5 or above is required for residency in any Constine Community. There is a special scoring system for those lacking prior rental history.

How do I purchase a home from Constine Communities?

Submitting the RealChek application and receiving a passing score is the first step. Then once you have passed one of our sales people will assist you in finding the right home. A purchase agreement will be signed next, and the financing process will begin. If you do not already have a source for the necessary funds, we have several lending partners that will be happy to review your application. You will be ready to close on your new home when the financing process is finished. This entire process is usually completed in 30 days or less.

Can I purchase a new custom home from Constine Communities?

Yes! There are many styles, sizes, and manufacturers to choose from. We would be more than happy to assist you with this. Our knowledge can help you with everything from site selection to choosing the right home and options to fit your lifestyle and budget.

Can I move my home into a Constine community?

If you own a manufactured home in another community, there is a very good possibility that you can move your home into one of our communities. Our site manager will first do an inspection to make sure your home meets community standards. Then the RealChek approval process will be done and residency documents will be completed. Next, the site will be prepared and you will contract with a home mover. In no time at all, you will be back in the comfort of your own home enjoying your new surroundings.
