As with anything one is trying to sell, it is always essential to ensure you, as the Seller, are providing exactly what your potential Buyer is looking for. The lack of complete information from the seller sometimes creates problems that may not be easy to resolve during the selling process. It is always essential for the seller to provide all necessary information to avoid any unexpected hurdles.

This theory holds whether you want to sell a car, a pair of sneakers, or your mobile home.

If you are not providing what Buyers in the market are looking for, then it would be reasonable to think that you may be holding on to your mobile home for much longer than you initially expected.

With this general principle understood, the basic question of what exactly a Sarasota, Florida mobile home Buyer is looking for needs to be answered.

We, here at The Mobile Home Dealer, have broken down the three main features a mobile home Buyer is looking for when considering purchasing their next home in the greater Sarasota, Florida, area below to help educate all of the would-be Sellers on exactly how to position their mobile home for a fast sale.

  1. The Home Needs To Be Safe

This can often be taken in several different directions depending on who the Buyer and the Seller are.

For this example, we will stress that the home needs to be safe for the new Buyer to purchase and begin working on it or living in it right after closing.

If the Buyer is looking to move into the home and start living within the property right after purchasing the mobile home, then the Seller should make sure that the roof is in good condition, free of leaks, the floors are solid, the electric works and the plumbing is functional.

The main thing here is to make sure that there are no exposed wires that could harm the new Buyer or issues with the floor that, if stepped on, could cause the Buyer to fall and injure themselves.

Having a house with a broken window and leaving it with the buyer to repair can turn many buyers away, especially if the buyer is looking to move into the house immediately.

Pro Tip:

If you were to send a family member into your home without telling them anything, would they injure themselves while trying to move around the home like normal? If the answer is yes, look to repair whatever the problem is ASAP!

2. The Home Needs To Be Clean

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and is a standard one-liner we are all familiar with; sadly, so is dirtiness!

Make sure you have your belongings cleared up and the home is in presentable condition when you are looking to sell it. By this, we do not mean you have to have it totally showroom ready, but if there are unpleasant odors, noticeable stains, or an overly messy home, make sure you do your best to get this cleaned up as soon as you can before the home is put up for sale.

Cleaning should not be limited internally. You don’t want the buyer to see overgrown greens touching the house either.

Pro Tip:

If you are a smoker or have pets, your home has odors. Make sure you air the home out constantly and move your smoking and pets outside as much as possible.

3. The Home Needs To Be Affordable

With rising real estate prices, it is easy to think that if you are selling a mobile home on leased land in the Sarasota, Florida, area, you could easily charge an overly inflated price in order to sell your home.

Make sure you are selling your mobile home at a fair market value. If you are asking for a higher price, make sure that the buyer has the option to negotiate.

While we at The Mobile Home Dealer want all Sellers to get the most for their homes at the time of sale, we also fully understand that if a home is priced too high, regardless of its location, time of year, or upgrades, it will sit.

Pro Tip:

Like everything else in the economy, the mobile home market is driven by supply and demand. However, there is a ceiling to the price of a mobile home that Buyers will simply not pay. If you are confused about this amount, you may want to seek out a professional in the space who can help you accurately price your home at a reasonable asking price.

When looking to sell your Sarasota, Florida, mobile home, always look to bring the Buyer what they want, as they are your customer during the transaction of selling your home.

Avoiding these top three attributes of what a mobile home Buyer is looking for when purchasing their new home could very well lead to an elongated sales process where you cannot sell your property!

We highly recommend seeking professional assistance to avoid future headaches from issues such as the cost of selling, agent commissions, documents, and other extras. 

We have other videos and articles discussing “how not to sell your house,” and I recommend watching and reading them. Knowing this stuff could not only prepare you for selling your mobile home but can also lead to fast and flawless transactions.
