How do you prepare a Sarasota mobile home for sale?

Sellers ask us all the time what they need to do in order to get their mobile home ready for sale.

We find that many times Sellers don’t exactly know what to do in order for their home to show well for photos, videos, and actual in-person showings.

So without further delay, let’s go through just a few of them.

First Task:
Make sure your mobile home is cleaned up!

We can’t tell you the amount of times we have scheduled showings for perspective Buyers only for the home to look like a fraternity party just finished moments before we arrived!

Now, although I am joking, I am being serious when we say it should be cleaned up for all media and showings. This means taking out and getting rid of all of the excess clutter in the home. Make sure the bathrooms and kitchen are clean and present well and always look to have the floors and carpet steamed or at the very least just vacuumed.

Second Task:
Check make sure all animals are out of the home!

Just last week, I showed a home to an interested couple and the Owner forgot to take the two dogs out with them. The dogs were left in the home without me knowing they were even there. When I walked into the home to get the lights on before the Buyers showed up, I had to figure out how in the heck am I able to handle these two dogs!

At another showing a few months ago, the Owner had a parrot, and the bird was squawking the entire time I was showing the house!

True story!

As an animal lover myself, I have no issues with these furry friends or feathered little guys being around, but that does not mean that the Buyers want to have this as their first introduction to your zoo!

Third Task:
Always have your mobile home cleaned out of any bad smells prior to a showing.

Although this obviously will not come up in any photos or videos, this can be a huge turnoff to any excited Buyer who comes in to see your home.

Common odors that we run into all the time are smoke and animal smells and, what we refer to as, just a stale smell.

What we found the best way to combat these odors is to get the windows open and have as much fresh air in to your home as possible.

If you know there is a showing happening later in the day, make sure to open the windows and turn on your fans as this will help in getting the odors out of your home so that when an excited Buyer comes to look at your home, they will not run out whenever they walk in!

And last but certainly not least, always make sure you are doing all that you can to make it easy for the Buyer to buy your home!
