As with anything one is trying to sell it is always important to make sure you as the Seller are providing exactly what your potential Buyer is looking for. The lack of complete information from the seller sometimes creates problems that may not be easy to resolve during the course of the selling process. It is always important for the seller to provide all necessary information to avoid any unexpected hurdles.
This theory holds true whether you are looking to sell a car, a pair of sneakers, or your very own mobile home.
If you are not providing what those Buyers in the market are looking for then it would be reasonable to think that you may in fact be holding on to your mobile home for much longer than you had initially expected.
With this general principle understood, the basic question of, what exactly is a Sarasota Florida mobile home Buyer looking for needs to be answered.
We, here at The Mobile Home Dealer, have broken down the three main features a mobile home Buyer is looking for when considering purchasing their next home in the greater Sarasota Florida area below in an effort to help educate all of the would-be Sellers on exactly how to position their mobile home for a fast sale.
- The Home Needs To Be Safe
Many times this can be taken in several different directions pending on who the Buyer and the Seller are.
For this example, we will stress that the home needs to be safe for the new Buyer to purchase and begin either working on it or living in it right after closing.
If the Buyer is looking to move into the home and start living within the property right after purchasing the mobile home then the Seller should make sure that the roof is in good condition, free of leaks, the floors are solid, the electric works and the plumbing is functional.
The main thing here is to make sure that there are no exposed wires that could cause the new Buyer harm or issues with the floor that, if stepped on, could cause the Buyer to fall through in injure themselves.
Having a house with a broken window and leaving it with the buyer to repair can turn many buyers away especially if the buyer is looking to move into the house immediately.
If you were to send a family member into your home without telling them anything, would they injure themselves while trying to move around the home like normal? If the answer is yes, look to repair whatever the problem is ASAP!
2. The Home Needs To Be Clean
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and is a common one-liner we are all familiar with, sadly, so is dirtiness!
Make sure you have your belongings cleared up and the home is in presentable condition when you are looking to sell it. With this, we do not mean you have to have it totally showroom ready but if there are unpleasant odors, noticeable stains or the home is overly messy make sure you do your best in order to get this cleaned up as soon as you can before the home is put up for sale.
Cleaning should not be limited internally. You don’t want the buyer to see overgrown greens touching the house either.
If you are a smoker or have pets, your home has odors. Make sure you air the home out on a constant basis and move your smoking and pets outside as much as possible.
3. The Home Needs To Be Affordable
With rising real estate prices it is easy to think that if you are selling a mobile home on leased land in the Sarasota Florida area you could easily charge an overly inflated price in order to sell your home.
Make sure you are selling your mobile home around the fair market value. If you are asking for a higher price, make sure that the buyer has the option to negotiate.
While we, here at The Mobile Home Dealer, want all Sellers to get the most for their home at the time of sale we also fully understand that if the home is priced too high, regardless of the location, time of year, or upgrades the home has it will sit.
The mobile home market prices are driven by supply and demand, just like everything else in the economy. However, there is a ceiling to the price of a mobile home that Buyers will simply not pay. If you are confused about this amount you may want to seek out a professional in the space who can help you accurately price your home at a reasonable asking price.
When looking to sell your Sarasota Florida mobile home always look to bring the Buyer what they want as they are your customer during the transaction of selling your home.
Avoiding these top three attributes of what a mobile home Buyer is looking for when purchasing their new home could very well lead to an elongated sales process where you are not able to sell your property!
We highly recommend having professional assistance to avoid future headaches from issues like the cost of selling, agent commissions, documents, and other extra stuff.
We have other videos and articles discussing “how not to sell your house” and I recommend watching and reading them. Knowing this stuff could not only prepare you for selling your mobile home but can also lead to fast and flawless transactions.
