"I believe that area is known as Butler (Butler Ave, north of Northern Ave.) Frankly it's probably one of the least desirable areas in town (Birdland is the worst.)"

If you're not sure of what the area is called, perhaps you are not qualified to speak to it's desirability?

Yes, it is called "Butler" or "New Butler Addition". ZIP code 86409. It has yet to be annexed by the City of Kingman so it has no public department services (water, sewer, trash) It is served by the Mohave County Sheriff's office as opposed to KPD and by the Haulapai Fire District.

Concurring with rambush, if you are from an area where mobile homes are not prevelant it may seem like a giant trailer park but its actually varied. There are 50 year old single-wides next to brand new construction. Vacant lots next to master gardeners. The areas closer to Mohave Community College (1971 E. Jagerson) are "nicer" than the streets closer to Northern - but that depends on what your definition of "nicer" is. I rented in one of the desirable sections of town when we first moved here and had to suffer with horrible neighbors on both sides for a year.

Now I live in downtown, often disparaged as an area overrun by cockroachs with a meth house on every corner and I haven't had a problem the entire time.

I looked at a few places, you were right about the neighborhoods. I found a great little place in the Butler area, clean, quiet street. In fact the place is a steal at the price. Only problem is getting a home loan that small. Nobody wants to talk to you if it's under $100,000. But I'm not giving up...

I'm glad you found something! How exciting. Mobile homes do not qualify for traditional mortgages...they are considered "vehicles" and have titles like cars (unless they are specially ground-set and even then it's difficult). I don't know the ins-and-outs. Maybe there is a real estate person the forums that can help.

I don't mind the trailer parks, I live in Quartzsite now, and that's all there is here. I like the town here, but places are really expensive. These folks seem to think their properties are worth alot.( $50,000 for an empty lot just big enough for a trailer) But the same places have been for sale for the last 2 years since I've been here.
Going up to Kingman next week to look at another place. The owner will carry, and it's priced right. On the west side of town, kinda out by itself.

$50K for a small trailer lot in Quartzsite? Especially in this recession? Wow..........just wow.

I agree with you: Kingman wins hands down by comparison:

Much milder summers
More rain
Lots more amenities with BHC/LHC an hour away and Vegas 2 hours..........
Hualapai Mountains close at hand.
Etc.
