Should You Get An Inspection On Your Sarasota Florida Mobile Home Before Buying?

So, the time has come where you have finally found the mobile home home of your dreams in the greater Sarasota Florida area.

The price seems right, the layout is functional for your lifestyle and the location of the mobile home park is right within reach of all of the fun activities that Sarasota Florida is known for.

You may have had experience buying or selling a single family home in the past but are curious on if you should go forward with a home inspection on the mobile home that are you looking purchase and are curious on if you should spend the money to move forward with a home inspection?

Sound familiar?

If so, we are happy to help walk you through the pros and cons of ordering a home inspection on your Sarasota Florida mobile home that located on leased land.

Mobile homes in the greater Sarasota Florida area that are located on leased land where you purchase the home and rent the land are viewed as and taxed as personal property in the state of Florida and not as real estate. As such the buying process is much different than that of a mobile home with land included or a single family home.

When buying a mobile home on leased land through a licensed mobile home broker such as The Mobile Home Dealer, it is important to know that all homes sold are sold in As Is condition.

What this means is that, essentially, what you see is what you get when it comes to the home and what you are getting for your money.

When Buyers are looking to obtain a home inspection for a mobile home that is being sold in As Is condition we stress to the Buyer to not expect the Seller to go and fix anything that may or may not come up on the home inspection report. We further stress that many Sellers will not allow this report to be used as a bargaining tool either in an attempt for the Buyer to get the mobile home at a lower price, because, again, the home is being sold As Is.

We do stress to all Buyer that if the Buyer is looking to obtain information from the home for their own information and nothing else that it would be beneficial to move forward with a home inspection on the mobile home they are looking to purchase.

It is important for all Buyer to always keep their expectations reasonable when they are looking through the mobile home inspection report due to the fact that the average age of a mobile home in the greater Sarasota Florida area is that of a 1976 home. One need to expect that there certainly could be some issues with a home of that age that has been siting in the Florida weather for that many years.

Expecting a mobile home inspection to come back without a single issue would be unreasonable.

When looking at obtaining a mobile home inspection on a mobile that you are looking to buy it is certainly a good idea to have one done if you are simply looking for additional information on the home and not as a bargaining tool or under an expectation that everything will come back perfectly as if the home was brand new.
