Do you think you need to physically see the mobile home you are buying prior to actually making an offer on it?
What happens if you are out of state or out of the country and see a mobile home that sparks your interest but is not in a place to be able to come to take a look at it before the opportunity passes itself by?
Do you live out of state and are concerned about if the mobile home will be sold before you are able to make it down to see it in person?
With how fast the real estate market is selling right now one needs to be focused on moving as quickly as they can if and when they find the mobile home that meets their needs throughout the greater Sarasota Florida area.
In order to move as quickly as possible every Buyer should be open to utilizing the latest technology and being okay with buying a mobile home virtually without physically stepping foot into the property itself.
Crazy idea, right?
We, here at The Mobile Home Dealer, sell over half of our mobile homes site unseen to Buyers all throughout the country and are quite familiar with addressing the most common concerns that Buyers seem to have.
The Mobile Home Dealer is the only licensed mobile home brokerage firm in the state that relies heavily on virtual tours for the home to sell. Not only does this give all the Buyers a real and honest understanding of exactly what the home is but we also go to lengths to make sure the Buyer knows exactly what the home is not.
By showing the good and the bad parts of all our homes we feel it allows the Buyer to receive a thorough understanding of exactly what they can expect when buying their mobile home without being present for the actual walk-through.
If the Buyer feels they need more information on the home, other than the standard virtual tour, then we are happy to set up a private virtual showing for the Buyer as well.
Here, we utilize a number of different video call options so that the Buyer is able to get a personalized walk-through of the home where they can ask the Sales Agent more questions than perhaps what the virtual tour was able to show.
When it comes to closing, we got that covered as well!
As licensed mobile home Brokers in the state of Florida, we are responsible for collecting and paying on the Buyers behalf all of the sales taxes, title, and registration fees that are required for the purchase and title transfer.
Heck, we even got the Department Of Motor Vehicles ourselves to get the title taken out of the seller’s name and placed into the Buyers name.
All of this comes at no extra charge to you, the Buyer of the mobile home.
As we all know mobile homes priced right sell very quickly. With selling so many homes to out-of-state folks, this is a real concern for many of our clients. I wanted to touch base with all of you today to let you know that this should not be a concern for you when you were looking to buy your new mobile home down here in the Sunshine State of Florida.
We at The Mobile Home Dealer sell the majority of our homes to out-of-state Buyers, who find our listings through some sort of online channel that we advertise them through.
Most of the time, these Buyers have already seen the detailed virtual tour we offer on all of our homes prior to them connecting with us to discuss their interest regarding their new mobile home purchase. After we speak to a state Buyer to better understand their needs we always offer to set up a video chat with them with a one-on-one viewing so they are able to have a private tour of the home to see exactly what they want that the virtual tour may or may not show. A lot of times, these things can be the opening and shutting of doors, looking at the closets, turning on lights or running the water, running the dishwasher, you name it we have been asked to do it!
It is not uncommon for all of our agents to do this at least once if not more than that with each Buyer who is out of state and interested in a mobile home.
If you see a home for sale by one of our agents and are interested in learning more but do not feel like you have the time to come down to Florida just to take a look at the mobile home before it sells do not let this be a deterrent to your purchase at all. We at The Mobile Home Dealer will always be happy to set up a time to give you a private video tour of the home to help you get a better idea of exactly what the home is and what the home is not so that you feel as comfortable as possible before moving forward with your new mobile home purchase.
Buying a mobile home in Sarasota, Florida can be done virtually with a few key steps. First, research available mobile homes for sale in the Sarasota area and make sure the mobile home meets your needs. Next, contact a local real estate agent who is familiar with the Sarasota mobile home market. Ask them questions about the mobile home, such as any recent repairs, the age of the home, and the condition of all features. Also, inquire about the zoning regulations for mobile homes in Sarasota county.
After you have found a mobile home that suits your needs, contact the seller and arrange a virtual walk-through. Virtual walk-throughs are conducted using video chat services like Skype or Facetime. During the virtual walk-through, ask questions about the condition of the mobile home and take pictures or videos to review later.
Once you have decided to purchase the mobile home, meet with an attorney or real estate agent to review the contract and make sure you are getting a fair deal. They will also be able to help you with the title transfer process, securing financing, and any other paperwork.
Buying a mobile home virtually may seem intimidating at first, but if you follow these steps, you can have a successful and stress-free purchase.
We at The Mobile Home Dealer usually complete these video chats through our cell phones where we connect directly with you, the Buyer.
Most all cell phones these days have the capability on them to provide this type of service and if you are not familiar with the technology then we will be more than happy to walk you through it so that you feel as comfortable as possible with using it.
This is Mark Kaiser with The Mobile Home Dealer and we help mobile home Buyers and Sellers get to a better place in life.
