3 Things You NEED To Know Before Renting Your Sarasota Florida Mobile Home!

The weather is starting to warm up here in the greater Sarasota Florida area, before you know it the dog days of summer will be here when everyone is looking for a cool place to be during the hot hours of the summer afternoon.

With the change in weather we also see a large change in population of the Sarasota Florida mobile home market, mainly, less snow birds are around right now and by this time next month we expect to see only us “locals” around enduring the hot months here in Sarasota.

If you are a seasonal Sarasota Florida mobile home resident you may want to look at renting your mobile home to help offset your costs for the remaining months of the year until the time comes for you to make your voyage back down south.

While renting your mobile home may be a great option to help bring down the carryings costs of your mobile home it is certainly worth mentioning the main factors needing to be reviewed and fully understood prior to putting a For Rent sign in your Sarasota Florida mobile window.

  1. Make Sure The Mobile Home Park Allows Rentals

Many mobile home parks in and around the Sarasota Florida area do allow some type of rentals, but not all. What we are seeing more and more here at The Mobile Home Dealer, is that the parks that do allow rentals require the renters to stay at the home for a minimum of three to four months at a time.

Always make sure you understand what the time length requirements are for renting to stay compliant with what the mobile home park will allow.

2. Does The Mobile Home Park Require All Renters To Be Park Approved?

When buying a mobile home in a land leased mobile home park within the greater Sarasota Florida area it is required that the Buyer get approved by the park prior to going through with the home purchase. However, does the park the mobile home park that your mobile home resides in require the same for renters?

Always make sure you understand and are compliant with what the mobile home park requires of the renter prior to putting your home up for rent.

3. Who Will Be Contacted If There Is An Issue With Your Mobile Home When Being Rented?

It is no secret that all rental properties will have things wear out and break, that is park of life.

Mobile homes certainly are not exempt from this issue either.

With this understood and with many times the owner of the mobile home living hundreds, if not thousands, of miles away, how will the issues be handled? Does the owner have a property management company who will come fix the sink if there is a leak or will there be someone around in the mobile home park who can come check on the property every few days?

Always make sure you know how issues will be handled with your mobile home prior to having a renter sign a lease.

Mobile home living is one of the most affordable options in the marketplace today. Being able to rent your mobile home out for a few months each year will even further bring down the carrying cost of the property you own.

Making sure you, as the mobile home owner, understand how the park works with renters and how you as the owner will handle potential issues will help you make an informed and profitable decision when looking to rent your Sarasota Florida mobile home.
