Today, in our third installment of, “How To Not Get Your Mobile Home Sold”, we will be discussing the importance of the mobile home Seller and the Sales Agent working together towards the common goal of getting a mobile home sold.
Although teamwork is something that is often discussed in several aspects of life, it is one that I feel needs to be addressed here when discussing how to get your mobile home sold quickly.
Selling a mobile home comes with all types of emotions attached to it. This could be due to health reasons, a death in the family, a lifestyle change, or any other situation that can come into play when someone decides to sell their mobile home.
We are all humans and know that sometimes life changes happen fast and, although we hope that these changes are all for the better, we cannot always guarantee it.
Sometimes these sudden life turns are very emotional.
We at The Mobile Home Dealer have experience working with mobile home Sellers who need to get their homes sold due to any one of the reasons mentioned above. We feel we are very patient and understanding working with every Seller when they call us to get their homes sold quickly. We stress to all of our team members at The Mobile Home Dealer the importance of being empathetic to someone’s needs, no matter how serious or casual they as Sales Agents may think they are.
With that understanding, let’s dive into the importance of working together to reach the same goal of getting the mobile home sold as fast as possible, for as much money as possible.
When working with each client, we at The Mobile Home Dealer stress our credentials as licensed mobile home Brokers in the state of Florida. At each listing presentation, we review our experience in the area with the Seller and can provide recent sales comps for like homes, along with our average days on market for homes sold in that area.
During this listing appointment, we explain what we feel is a solid price structure to correctly price the home so that it is in a position to be able to sell quickly within the current market conditions.
During our listing appointment, we always provide three numbers to the Seller with how we feel the home will sell in the community, as well as weighing in the current market conditions and the time of year that the home is being sold. All of these factors play a role in how the and when the home sells.
During the listing appointment, we explain what we feel will be the home’s strengths and the challenges in selling that property.
Here, we also explain that we feel that our best action is to be taken so that we can get the home sold quickly.
Our goal is, when we leave the listing appointment, to all be on the same page and ready to work together as a team.
Sometimes, though, the agreed-upon plan is intentionally gone against by the Seller.
We have had Sellers attempt to try and sell the home themselves while within a listing agreement with us only for the Buyer to then back out, but not before the Sales Agent has found out.
As I am sure you can imagine, this creates major trust issues and a possible legal situation as the Seller has gone against the listing agreement that they signed.
We have also had Sellers not follow along with the pricing structure that was agreed upon at the listing appointment by digging their feet into the sand after they had already agreed upon what they were going to do with their stair-stepping of the price of the property.
We have had sellers not allow showings on their property or go as far as calling a Sales Agent to cancel the showing minutes before the showing starts.
We at The Mobile Home Dealer believe that these actions are taken purely out of emotion by the Seller and not by thinking in a level-headed mindset with what was agreed upon in the first place with the Sales Agent.
Mobile home Sales Agents are professionals in the space. These Agents sell mobile homes daily, are in and out of these communities regularly, and have a ton of experience in the mobile home industry.
It is important to trust in the sales process that has been laid out and realize we are all working together to achieve the same goal of getting the mobile home sold as fast as possible.
If you are trying to avoid selling your Sarasota mobile home, there are a few things you can do to increase the chances of keeping it in your possession. First, make sure to keep up with regular maintenance, such as sealing and painting the exterior, replacing broken fixtures, and checking that all utilities are in working order. Second, try to boost curb appeal by adding landscaping features that make the home stand out. Third, explore the option of using a mobile home park as a way to provide consistent rent income from tenants. Last, consider leasing your mobile home rather than selling it, which can be a viable option for many owners. By following these tips and taking the necessary steps to maintain and improve your Sarasota mobile home, you can increase the chances of keeping it in your possession.
If you want to sell your Sarasota Florida mobile home fast, it is important to trust your agent and prepare everything important to the buyer, especially the documentation.
