Although this seems like a very detailed answer that needs to be given, the truth is it is not. In fact, selling your Sarasota Florida mobile home quickly can boil down to three specific factors, that if followed, will help get your mobile home very quickly very top dollar.
Now, I am not trying to eliminate the professional opinions of others in the space, but rather, I am trying to get give all of the reads of this blog a much better understanding of how to get their mobile home sold quickly without all the extra garbage that is out there on the internet discussing what to do and what not to do.
With that understood, please take take this as a guide of what we, at The Mobile Home Dealer, have seen on a repeated basis that, if followed correctly, will lead to you not only getting your Sarasota Florida mobile home sold fast but also for top dollar regardless of what the market is doing in your community or within the area your mobile home is located in.
- Price Your Mobile Home Correctly
We put this point first because, as of this writing, the real estate market continues to be at nearly record highs. Being able to find a single family home in the greater Sarasota Florida are that is any where close to being affordable to the average home Buyer is getting less and less viable. Add to this the surge of snow birds coming down looking for a second home this time of year and we have a large lack of inventory.
These facts, although commonly known are where the average mobile home Seller fails.
Many mobile home Sellers believe that since the real estate market is going crazy that they too can push the price of their home out of normal values in an attempt to sell for the most profit possible. Although we appreciate their excited nature, this is not the case.
The reason why is that the vast majority of mobile home Buyers are looking for a safe, clean and affordable home. Not providing the affordability part of this equation to the would be Buyer is a downfall that many mobile home Sellers are falling into.
The key here is to look at other homes in your area, specifically your community, and understand what these homes are selling for and price your home accordingly.
2. Mark Your Mobile Home Correctly
Although the For Sale By Owner sign in the front yard can and does work to a certain extent it is just not the way to get your home sold fast. The reason for this is because with a sign in your front yard the Seller is looking for the one Buyer who is driving by the property, sees it and makes the call to the Seller to set up a time to see the property.
There are far better ways to market your home then this.
Look to take advantage of all of the out of state Buyers who are looking for a second home or their forever property. Utilizing property websites, good photos, a thorough description and video will help grab the attention of out of state Buyers, many of which will be the ones who are looking to purchase your home right away!
3. Understand The Sales Process
This is one aspect that we feel does not get covered enough and is one that if not done correctly will cause everyone serious problems.
Understand that if your Sarasota Florida mobile is located in a park on leased land that the park will need to have the resident park approved prior to getting a land leased signed. Failure to do this could very well cause issues with not only you as the Seller but the Buyer as well as they may not be able to own a property in the community you sold them one in.
If the Buyer is sold the home before an approval is on file and is then not able to sign a land lease then the Seller may still be responsible for the payment of the monthly lot rent.
No matter who the Buyer is, never sell your mobile home on leased land to someone who is not already park approved!
Following these three basic steps will help you, the mobile home Seller, move your property quickly and for the most profit possible.
Failing to understand the sales process, pricing your home too high and not getting enough exposure to your Sarasota Florida mobile home could be sure fire ways of how the sales process does not go as smoothly or as profitable as is otherwise could be.
