So, you’re thinking of selling your mobile home?

The mobile home park industry has grown tremendously over the past 4 decades. Today, mobile homes are built better, considered an affordable living option, and look like any other home at first glance.

Mobile homes are becoming very popular because they are more affordable than buying a traditional house. Plus, mobile homes don’t depreciate very quickly (they can even increase in value). This gives mobile homeowners the ability to sell their mobile homes for almost as much as they bought their mobile homes for, if not more.

Keep in mind though, not all mobile homes are created equal. So, before you decide what course of action to take, it’s important to think about all the options. Selling a mobile home can be challenging, especially if you don’t know exactly where to start!

If you think that selling your mobile home seems like the right option for you, then read on. In this article, we’ll explore some tips on how to sell your mobile home at a great price.

Tip 1: Fix any major problems with your mobile home.

There’s no use in trying to sell a mobile home that’s heavily damaged or destroyed. So before you even begin looking for buyers, make sure your mobile home is in good working order. 

Remember, buyers prefer move-in-ready homes. If you have a leaky roof, it may be difficult to find someone willing to pay a good price if they know that any time it rains they’ll be sitting in a puddle.

Don’t forget about things like basements or garages that may be falling apart. Make sure you call a reputable mobile home repair company that can get your mobile home looking better than new in less than a week. If you’re handy, you can even attempt the repairs yourself to save some money. You’ll get more offers (at higher amounts) if your mobile home looks its best when it hits the market.

Tip 2:  Make your mobile home show-ready before you list it for sale.

When we say show-ready, we don’t just mean fixing any structural damage your mobile home has. It also involves redecorating your mobile home before it goes up for sale.

Get rid of any broken items (i.e., furniture, appliances, etc.) so that potential buyers will not be discouraged from making an offer.  You may be able to find a second-hand store or thrift shop that would buy all these things off you for a few dollars.

If you have carpets, steam clean them thoroughly to remove any allergens or contaminants on their surface and dispose of the carpet cleanings appropriately.

Paint and polish the exterior of your mobile home, clean the windows, and spruce up your curb appeal too. 

Tip 3: Find expert help to sell your mobile home for as much as possible.

Consider this: Your mobile home won’t sell itself, so you’ll need to make it attractive to potential buyers right from the onset. Easier said than done if you don’t have a little know-how about selling a mobile home.

Tip 4: Ensure your mobile home meets the required installation standards.

The HUD Manufactured Home Construction and Safety Standards are federal standards that apply to manufactured homes built after June 15, 1976, so make sure your mobile home meets the standards.

Mobile homes must also be maintained in accordance with local building codes including proper electrical systems and smoke alarms; wiring regulations are more stringent than those required for single-family dwellings built in site-built housing codes. If there are damages in your mobile home that don’t meet building code or safety standards, then you might want to consider getting those fixed first before showing it off to potential buyers.

Tip 5:  Be transparent about the condition of your mobile home.

Contrary to what some sellers tend to do, you shouldn’t overstate the condition of your mobile home. Remember this: staying honest with yourself and with the buyers who come to view your property will help you attract more interested buyers for it.

There is a lot of competition when it comes to selling your mobile home, so transparency about its condition will help you get the best offer and sale.

Bonus tip: Don’t just wait for buyers; actively market your property!

The only way prospective customers can find out about your property is if you put it in front of them. Once you do, your home will be viewed by buyers who are in the market for mobile and can view it at their convenience.

The best way to start is by conducting thorough research on comparable listings that have sold recently or that are currently on the market. This will give you an idea of what price range your property should fall into based on its condition and features.

Compare square footage, lot size, age, bathrooms, bedrooms, amenities (if any), and physical appearance. Note whether there was a parking pad included with the sales price or not; was there guest parking? Are the homes within walking distance to others?

Look at similar models that have sold recently in the area. Check to see if they were unoccupied, foreclosed, or had some issues that made them undesirable to other buyers. Take note of any renovations done and ask yourself if you can do something similar to make your mobile home more attractive. If you spot a trend, refine your price so it falls within that range. It’s important not to list too high as this will likely turn off potential buyers who won’t even bother viewing your property.
