How Did Sarasota Mobile Homes Sell In 2020?

How did mobile homes sell throughout Sarasota County during the year of 2020?


Did COVID have an effect on the market?

And if it did, was it positive or was it negative?

I believe we can all agree that the past year was one that we will not soon forget because it was filled with uncertainty that no one ever had seen before in their lives.

Mobile home sales for the year reflected much of this, as there were several unusual trends that came up that we have not seen before on our end.

Whether you are interested in buying or selling a mobile home in Sarasota, it is important to remember that we are working within the affordable housing industry.

This industry is not affected by the housing bubbles or crashes that traditional real estate continues to see.

As mentioned in several of our previous videos, if a mobile home is priced correctly and is marketed right, then usually the home will not have any issue in selling so long as both of those points are in alignment with what the community can support.

What we mean by this is when a mobile home is priced too high for what other homes in the community are being sold at or listed, it usually tends to sit on the market for longer than if the home was priced correctly, right from the very beginning.

Always remember, make it easy as possible for the home buyer to buy from you, not difficult.

Throughout 2020, we saw less homes come up for sale than what we had expected.

We believe this had much to do with the concerns of COVID and that many snowbirds were hesitant in their thinking of if they were looking to sell or to come down for the season like normal.

So instead of acting one way or the other, many decided to do nothing while waiting out the situation that we have, unfortunately, all gotten used to at this point.

This has continued throughout the start of this year with a slight slack of inventory throughout the Sarasota County area.

Even though there is a slight lack of inventory at the moment, this does not mean that the homes that are currently on the market are able to demand a much higher price point. Homes that did go on the market and were priced correctly, flew off the shelves throughout the second part of the year, which was great to see!

All in all, when reviewing the buying and selling part of the mobile home industry throughout Sarasota, we can all agree that it was a very unique year, but one that continued to show that when a mobile home is priced right and marketed correctly, they sell no matter what else is going on in the world at this time.
