What are the most sought after a mobile homes available in the Sarasota area in 55 plus communities?
We at,The Mobile Home Dealer, work in age qualified communities within the Sarasota region on a daily basis.
When we are working with Sellers who are looking to have us sell their mobile home quickly, we are always asked, “Hey, what type of home sells the fastest?”
We have learned that it always comes back to the same answer,that two bed, two bath, double-wide mobile homes are the types of homes Buyers are looking to find in the area, but the answer, it doesn’t just stop there.
We also need to go in to see how these two bed, two bath homes are positioned in the age qualified market in order for them to sell quickly.
Both the Buyer and the Seller realized that the homes being sold are often times not brand new homes.
Many homes in the market within the Sarasota area, especially in the age qualified parks, are models from the 1970s and the 1980s. Here the Buyer realizes that there may be some common wear and tear on the home, as it obviously is not a brand new mobile home.
We believe that most Buyers expect some dings and scratches within the home, but the main thing they are looking for is, is the home currently habitable in its current state? Is it clean? And is it safe?
By habitable, I am referring to is the home livable as it sits currently, are the bigger repairs already done or do they need to be worked on right after the buyer buys the home?
Does the air conditioner work without any issues? Is there any evidence of any water damage? Does the roof look good and in solid shape? Are the floors solid with very few, if any, soft spots? And are the appliances that come with the home in proper working condition?
Most Buyers want the ability to buy the home, unload their suitcase, and immediately begin enjoying their new home without the requirement of a large repair bill in the immediate future.
The home does not need to be professionally cleaned when it comes up for sale, but it does need to be picked up and straightened. Remember, you never get a second chance to make a first impression, so it is important to put your best foot forward when you put your home up for sale.
The home does need to be safe right away. If there are any issues with the electrical or plumbing, make sure those are either fixed prior to having the home listed or at the very least tell your licensed mobile home broker that you are aware of the issues that exist, so the Buyer is informed prior to the purchase of your home.
