Peoples' Self-Help Housing is hosting a free workshop on "A Mobile Home as an Affordable Home Purchase Option" on Thursday, Aug. 14, from 6 to 8 p.m.

The educational workshop is free and open to the public and will take place in the Community Room of Villa La Esperanza Apartments, 131 S. Kellogg Ave., Goleta. Light refreshments will be served.

Learn general information about mobile home purchases. Mobile homes are a viable housing option in our high-cost area.

Clay Dickens from Community West Bank will speak about how mobile home loans differ from home mortgages. Sheila Siegel from California Property Group will discuss the cost and options of purchasing in a mobile home park where you rent vs. own the space.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
