Unlike traditional houses, some mobile homes depreciate similarly to how cars do. o maintain and even increase the value of a mobile home, the owner must perform regular maintenance and even minor repairs that can be done by themselves.
Once you are ready to sell, there are many structural, cosmetic, and functional repairs and updates that you can make to increase the value, as well as tips and tricks that you can use to attract potential buyers. It is easy to determine what repairs and updates to do when you know what people are looking to buy.
If you are looking to sell your Sarasota Florida mobile home fast, how do you do it?
Although this seems like a very detailed answer that needs to be given, the truth is it is not. Selling your Sarasota Florida mobile home quickly can boil down to three specific factors, that if followed, will help get your mobile home very quickly very top dollar.
Now, I am not trying to eliminate the professional opinions of others in the space, but rather, I am trying to give all of the readers of this blog a much better understanding of how to get their mobile home sold quickly without all the extra garbage that is out there on the internet discussing what to do and what not to do.
With that understanding, please take this as a guide of what we, at The Mobile Home Dealer, have seen on a repeated basis that, if followed correctly, will lead to you not only getting your Sarasota Florida mobile home sold fast but also for top dollar regardless of what the market is doing in your community or within the area your mobile home is located in.
We received quite a bit of interest regarding our video blog last week, reviewing what should be done to get your Sarasota mobile home ready for sale.
Last week, we discussed the more basic items that should be done when you are getting your home ready to sell such as getting rid of clutter and airing your home out in an attempt to get rid of all the bad smells. And, oh yeah, making sure the home Buyers are buying a home and not a zoo!
Today, I am diving deeper into the idea of getting rid of clutter as this seems to be one of the aspects of getting a mobile home ready to sell that we at the Mobile Home Dealer continue to see Sellers have a problem with.
When we are speaking of clutter, we are referring to cleaning up and getting rid of anything in the home that makes it feel too busy and unable to provide the Buyer with a good sense of the true size of your home.
Many times mobile homes have quite a bit of space in them, much more so than what initially appears in the street. The key here is for the Seller to make sure that your home shows as large as it can. Having big, bulky furniture will oftentimes make the rooms look smaller.
Now I understand that it may be difficult to switch out or move out much of your furniture when looking to sell your home. So I am not concerned with the size of the furniture in the home.
What I am concerned with is all the additional stuff that adds to the clutter of the home you want to sell.
These items are usually stacks of magazines, empty boxes, old mail, or that one piece of furniture that is broken but you thought you might get around to fixing one day. All of this stuff adds to the space that is being taken up in your mobile home and does not allow the Buyer to get a good sense of how open the area is.
Most mobile homes in Sarasota have a carport with connected storage or a shed in the backyard. Look to use these areas as a place to store the items that we discussed above anytime you are looking to sell your mobile home. If these areas are already full of your household items, then it may be time to start getting rid of some of your stuff to make sure that the Buyer has a good idea of just how large the mobile home is that you are looking to sell!
I fully understand how stressful moving is.
Many times, you will want to hold onto many of the items that make your house a home, and for good reason. However, making sure you’re able to show how large your home is, is a sure bet to gaining the Seller’s attention, which could lead to selling your mobile home faster!
Many mobile home Sellers believe that since the real estate market is going crazy they too can push the price of their home out of normal values in an attempt to sell for the most profit possible.
Although we appreciate their exciting nature, this is not the case.
Getting your mobile home in Sarasota ready to sell can be a daunting task, but it can be made easier by following a few simple steps. First, you should make sure that all the necessary repairs and maintenance have been completed. This includes updating the electrical systems, repairing any plumbing issues, and ensuring that the roof and exterior are in good condition. Additionally, it is important to de-clutter the interior and exterior of the home to ensure it presents well to potential buyers.
Next, you should invest in some cosmetic upgrades. This could include painting the walls and trim, replacing the carpets or flooring, and upgrading the kitchen or bathroom fixtures. Investing in a few simple upgrades can make a world of difference for potential buyers, and will help your mobile home stand out from the crowd.
Once those steps are complete, you should work on staging your home. This involves arranging furniture and décor to accentuate the features of your mobile home and make it look appealing. Finally, consider having professional photographs taken of your home so that you can share them with potential buyers.
By taking these steps, you can help make sure that your mobile home in Sarasota is ready to be sold in no time!
The reason is that the vast majority of mobile home Buyers are looking for a safe, clean, and affordable home. Not providing the affordability part of this equation to the would-be Buyer is a downfall that many mobile home Sellers are falling into.
The key here is to look at other homes in your area, specifically your community, understand what these homes are selling for, and price your home accordingly.
