"Quality living in Rancho Santa Teresa Mobile Home Estate"

I've been living in this mobile home park for almost four years now. It is one of the nicest parks in San Jose that you'll find at a reasonable price. Space rent as of 2008 runs about $700 with only 3% increases each year due to rent control. The park offers a swimming pool, a club house with a pool table, car washing facilities, an outdoor bbq & picnic bench area, and a small chapel. There is security on the grounds each night.

The owner and managers have invested a great deal of time and money to improve the landscaping and general look of the park. This includes new signage everywhere, new grass lawns, constant trimming of the many palm trees & cactus, and creating new lawn areas where weeds and dirt used to exist.

The managers offer a number of programs and events including bbqs for the holidays, potlucks, public safety lectures, a newsletter committee, and more. The managers live on the premises as do all the gardeners and office personnel so they have a vested interest in making the place look nice.

The downside is there are very stringent rules about the maintenance of your home that can make it difficult to buy or sell your property. Things seemed to have improved under the new management, but the owner is a real stickler for crossing every 't' and dotting every 'i' when it comes to passing an inspection. Cell phone access is a pain most of the time. You should also know that the train runs very close to the park. However, after about three weeks I no longer even noticed when a train ran through even though my home is directly in front of the tracks by about 200 feet or so.

Pets are allowed (one only) as are children. There are also a large number of retired people living in the park. Homes range from as little as $40,000 to as much as $110,000 so there's something for everyone.
