When looking to sell your Sarasota mobile home we here at The Mobile Home Dealer always stress to our clients how important it is to take every offer they receive for the purchase of their mobile home seriously.
Part of selling a mobile home is fielding all offers, some of which will be quite a bit lower than what you as the seller want to accept but it is how you respond to each offers that is a major determining factor in how fast your home sells.
All of our sales agents at The Mobile Home Dealer are required to send all offers that we receive for the mobiles homes we have listed directly to our clients. The reason why we mention this is that many other firms in the area attempt to act like they own the home that they are listing and not send all offers to the Sellers. These sales agents feel that it is too much of a burden to ask their client to consider an offer that is under or what their client feels like they should be paid for the home.
We do not believe this is the right way to sell a mobile home and as such we bring all offers, good bad and ugly to our clients.
The reason why we do this is because when a Buyer makes a written offer then they have already mentally made the decision that they are ready to purchase a mobile home and that they are so interested in your home that you are selling that they have decided to commit in writing to give you a certain amount of money for the purchase of it.
The reason why this is so important to mention in this article is because obtaining an offer is the hardest part of the process.
When we as humans mentally make the decision to buy something we are weighing the pros and cons of this decision and are stepping through any door of failure, fear or insecurity when doing so by simply making the offer. Once the offer is made then a counter offer is much easier to be given by the Buyer because the hardest thing has already been done by making the initial offer.
This is the reason why we bring every offer to every Seller.
Once the offer has been made then the Seller needs to be able to understand that the Buyer is ready to buy, we just need to get both the Buyer and the Seller to the same number.
Although this may seem like a difficult task, many times it is not.
Once the Buyer has sent out an offer the Seller has the ability to counter offer with an already motivated Buyer.
The worst thing the Seller can do is to receive a less than optimal offer and immediately dismiss the offer and the Buyer by not counteroffering.
Remember, the Buyer has already made the decision to Buy, the Seller has already made the decision to sell the property.
When looking at selling your mobile home we always stress to take each and every offer seriously and to not rely on the same old adage of “it is just the first offer” as the first offer, many times, will be your Buyer!
