Licensed Mobile Home Broker in the State of Florida. Buy and Sell Mobile Homes with Us!

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 to purchase their mobile home seriously.

Residing within a highly sought-after neighborhood can wield substantial influence over the valuation of your mobile home, potentially inflating your sense of value and pride. The dynamics of such a locale, mainly if you’ve been an attentive observer as neighboring mobile homes change hands at steadily ascending rates over the past few years, can undoubtedly foster elevated expectations as you prepare to list your property for sale. Anticipation builds as you envision the prospect of commanding a price that scales the upper echelons of the prevailing range, if not surpassing the historical pinnacle.

The synergy between your residence and the esteemed neighborhood bolsters your confidence in the value proposition you present to potential buyers. The established trend of ascending property prices within your vicinity instills a sense of optimism that your mobile home, marked by its convenient location and proximity to desirable amenities, holds the potential to fetch a premium valuation. This optimism fuels the aspiration for a substantial return on investment, aligning with the prevailing market sentiment and the precedent set by previous transactions.

However, it’s essential to approach this optimism with a balanced perspective, considering various factors that contribute to your mobile home’s overall value. While the neighborhood undeniably plays a pivotal role, factors such as the condition of your property, its unique attributes, and prevailing market conditions also play a substantial part in determining the eventual sale price. Thus, while the allure of a prime neighborhood elevates your prospects, it’s prudent to temper your expectations with a comprehensive understanding of the broader real estate landscape to ensure a successful and gratifying sale experience.

Before you test the waters with your mobile home, vowing only to consider offers that meet your (admittedly high) expectations, take a deep breath. A mobile home sale that meets your needs isn’t just about the final sale price on paper – it’s also about the contingencies and details that ultimately make the deal successful for everyone involved.

In many cases, the offer that gets you to a sale will be the first one you receive.

Especially when living in a hot real estate and mobile home market, a good – but not amazing – first offer may make you consider waiting to see what other buyers may be out there. Holding off could lead you to a great offer but also backfire.

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 offer is a major determining factor in how fast your home sells.

All of our sales agents at The Mobile Home Dealer must send all offers we receive for the mobile homes we have listed directly to our clients. We mention this because many other firms in the area attempt to act like they own the home they are listing and not send all offers to the Sellers. These sales agents feel it is too much of a burden to ask their clients to consider an offer that is under what their client feels 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 present all offers, good, bad, and ugly, to our clients.

We do this because when a Buyer makes a written offer, they have already mentally decided that they are ready to purchase a mobile home and are so interested in your home that you are selling that they have decided to commit in writing to giving you a certain amount of money for the purchase of it.

It is important to mention this in this article because obtaining an offer is the hardest part of the process.

When humans mentally decide to buy something, we weigh the pros and cons of this decision and step through any door of failure, fear, or insecurity by simply making the offer. Once the offer is made, then a counteroffer is much easier for the Buyer to give because the most complicated 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, the Seller needs 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 can counteroffer to an already motivated Buyer.

The worst thing the Seller can do is receive a less-than-optimal offer and immediately dismiss it and the Buyer by not counteroffering.

It’s important to keep perspective on any interest you get from a potential buyer and also remember that everything is up for discussion. “There are always negotiations and countering back and forth,” says Patrick O’Connor, a real estate agent with Premier Sotheby’s International Realty in Naples, Florida.

Even if the first offer you receive isn’t the price you were hoping for, you can easily make a counteroffer or negotiate for other details – like skipping an inspection or allowing you more time to move out – that can make the deal the right one for you.

Remember, the Buyer has already decided to Buy, and the Seller has already decided to sell the property.

When looking at selling your mobile home, we always stress taking each and every offer seriously and not relying on the same old adage of “it is just the first offer” as the first offer, which, many times, will be your Buyer!
