What does “The Season” mean regarding mobile homes in Sarasota, Florida?
Does “The Season” even exist?
If it does, when is that time?
We hear all the time that many mobile home Sellers around the Sarasota area will hold onto their homes and look to sell them during the season.
What does this even mean?
Well, when one hears the season it is specifically referring to the snowbird season, which is loosely defined as the months of December, January, February, and March as this is the time of year when the most out-of-state visitors come to the state of Florida to enjoy great weather and beautiful beaches.
Many mobile homeowners, around the Sarasota area, use their mobile homes as their second home that they use during this time and, oftentimes, will keep them vacant the rest of the year.
You can see which areas of Sarasota have a heavier snowbird population when driving through the parks in, say, the middle of July, as there will be several empty streets at that time of year, many of which will be full during the winter months with out-of-town residents looking to escape the cold for the winter.
Mobile homes located within mobile home parks are the best affordable option for housing.
These homes will be bought and sold throughout the year, regardless of what Holiday, month, or any other issue that’s going on, as they simply provide the best bang for your buck when it comes to housing in the Sarasota area.
What we, at The Mobile Home Dealer, see is that the homeowners who hold on to a home, they really do not want to live in or pay for in hopes of selling it during the winter, are many times let down by how many other homes are up for sale at that time.
More homes on the market create more competition and pricing, which is great for Buyers, but not so much for Sellers.
This is exactly the reason why we stress to all our Sellers to look to sell their home 12 months a year as opposed to only the four months when everyone else is trying to sell their home within the park.
Less inventory available on the market creates more demand, which as we see all the time leads to a higher price point when looking to sell your mobile home.
Does a season exist in mobile home sales within Sarasota, Florida?
Yes, it certainly does. If you are looking to sell your mobile home the best season, sell it 365 days a year!
With all the focus on the high real estate market everywhere throughout the country, one must think, when is the best time to sell your mobile home on leased land?
Is there a better or worse time of year to sell your mobile home when your home is located within a mobile home park?
Should you wait and sell the home until all the other homes in the community are sold, so that you are the only one for sale in that exact mobile home park?
Will selling your mobile home during the time of year when more snowbirds are in the area be a better time to sell your property for more money? Or when they are leaving?
This is a question that can be asked the opposite way too, should you look to sell your Sarasota Florida mobile home in the Fall before the snowbirds arrive for the snowbird season?
While both questions could be looked at in detail we, here at The Mobile Home Dealer, do not believe that there is a right time or a wrong time to sell your mobile home so long as your home is priced right and marketed correctly.
Let us explain.
If the Seller of a Sarasota mobile home looks to sell their mobile home to a snowbird at the start of the snowbird season then they are betting on the fact that the snowbird is going to be coming down to the greater Sarasota area without lodging in place as the Buyer will more than likely want to move into their new property right away.
If the Seller of a Sarasota mobile home is looking to sell their mobile home to a snowbird at the end of the snowbird season then they are betting on the fact that the snowbird is going to spend a chunk of money right before they head back to their out of state primary residence before they head home.
Either bet is exactly that, a gamble that we feel does not need to be taken.
Mobile homes on leased land in the Sarasota Florida area are one of the last affordable housing options for those who are looking to call the Sunshine State either their winter retreat or their full-time residence.
When looking to sell your Sarasota mobile home we feel that the best time of the year to sell is twelve months a year!
