Common Issues With Sarasota Mobile Homes #1

Common Mobile Home Issues #1

I received an e-mail from one of our viewers last week asking for us to begin shooting videos with us reviewing some of the most common issues we have seen in the mobile home industry.

When I heard this question, I immediately thought that this would be a good idea since we are in and out of mobile home and mobile home parks on a daily basis.

With this much experience, we seem to come across situations on a regular basis that, we feel, if more people knew about them, they could avoid the same issues that we have seen other Buyers and Sellers encounter with the same problems.

With all that said, today we are starting a new segment for our blogs entitled, Common Issues With Mobile Homes.

The common issue within mobile homes that we are going to discuss today is the importance of owning a home prior to moving anything into the property.

I understand that this may sound like an obvious statement, that it is important to own something before you actually act like it is yours, but you may be surprised at how many times we, at The Mobile Home Dealer, get asked if it would be okay for the new Buyer to begin moving things into their property prior to closing.

Anytime we get asked to allow this, we tell the Buyer that we are not able to allow it.

Many times, these Buyers get flustered at us for not letting them move their belongings into the property at this time.

The reason why we do not allow this is because we do not want our company or the Seller to be held in any way responsible for the items, should something be lost, stolen, or damaged prior to the home being closed on.

Secondly, we do not want the potential Buyer to have access to the property without an insured party present, such as a representative of The Mobile Home Dealer.

The reason for this is that, what happens if the new Buyer falls or has one of their friends or family members get injured while on the property?

If this were to happen, then who would be responsible for paying the medical bills, should the injury require some type of medical attention?

The last reason we do not allow this is because we want to make sure the Seller has the security knowing that the only person who will ever have access to the property are representatives of the company who are selling their home for them.

At no time will anyone other than representatives of The Mobile Home Dealer have access to the home’s keys or lock box codes on the property.

We are always happy to do anything we can to accommodate a Buyer to make sure they feel like their new home is theirs to do with it as they feel fit as soon as they can.

This is why we move quickly to get all the paperwork done and to move to closing on the home as fast as possible.

However, we do not take the trust and responsibility that the Seller entrusts in us lightly at all.

We at The Mobile Home Dealer will not do anything to jeopardize that.

So, if you are looking to get a jumpstart on moving in to your new mobile home, do everyone a favor and move quickly to the closing table first and do not look for a shortcut!

This is Mark Kaiser with the Mobile Home Dealer, and we help mobile home Buyers and Sellers get to a better place in life.
