Are you trying to sell your mobile home in Sarasota yourself and are curious if the time that it’s taking to sell is normal?
Are you wondering about the selling market and how COVID-19 is affecting the buyers wanting to buy your home?
I understand your questions and realize that these are often times concerns that many sellers have when beginning the journey of selling their mobile home, especially right now.
It is no secret that we are in a very unique and trying time when referring to COVID-10. As such, sellers need to be aware of how to best navigate the waters during all of this in order to get the most money for their home in the shortest amount of time.
We at the Mobile Home Dealer help sellers who have tried to sell their home themselves with very little success and have been able to get them exactly where they want to go much faster.
Many times these sellers have not sold a mobile home before and are often confused on the process needing to be completed in order to get the most eyes on their home as fast as possible.
It is very common where we see sellers putting out a for sale by owner sign outside of their home and are hoping that someone will eventually call, look at their home, set up a time to view it and make an offer that the seller is willing to accept.
This is essentially where the marketing for the sale of their home begins and………… ends.
Although the sign method is a good, basic strategy that may have worked in the past, it is not one that should be relied on now or in the future.
With the market changing due to the global pandemic of COVID-19, we are seeing more and more buyers buying mobile homes, sight unseen, through viewing the home solely online. The method for buyers finding the homes online varies but it is safe to say that there are considerably less people driving around and calling for sale by owner signs right now.
With that being said, buyers like everyone else are more focused on their safety now than ever before, this caution translates to the buying of a mobile home as well.
Less buyers driving around looking for signs equals less eyes on your home.
Currently, we are seeing an uptick in how long it is taking sellers to sell their home themselves. Right now it is taking eight to nine months for a seller to sell their home themselves. This amount of time is assuming the seller continues to keep the home up for sale the entire time and doesn’t get flustered and take the home totally off the market.
Eight to nine months of hoping the home sells on its own without any help from a professional brokerage firm is a long time, especially with each month that passes by, the seller has to pay lot rent, utilities, upkeep on the home and taxes.
Not only is this a financial strain but it’s also an emotional one as well having to constantly put your life on hold for a hope that some buyer will eventually come by to see your home for sale.
I believe if you are looking to sell your home quickly and for the most money possible, you will want to look at working with a mobile home brokerage firm that specializes in selling homes fast for top dollar, especially during these unique times of COVID-19.
