What Is My Sarasota Mobile Home Worth? Episode #2

What Is My Sarasota Mobile Home Worth Volume 2

We are back again for a second installment of, “What is Your Sarasota Mobile Home Worth?”

Last week we discussed the idea of selling your home fully furnished, or to empty it out prior to putting your home on the market. We reviewed that, although a mobile home that is being sold fully furnished, may lead to the home being sold faster, it does not always mean that it will sell for any more money. The money that you make, so to speak will be the dollars that are staying in your bank account by you not having to pay them out for the additional months of lot rent.

Today we want to discuss the idea of a new air conditioner, and if it will bring you any more money at the point in time when you go to sell your mobile home. Many times with The Mobile Home Dealer, we will meet with mobile home Sellers to review their home in order to come up with an accurate price to bring the home to market.

One of the first thing was we always look for is to see what type of air conditioning they have as down here in South Florida, it is imperative that any AC system is properly working due to the heat that this part of the state encounters several months a year.

Most Buyers will look for the home to have central AC as the main cooling system for the home. While window units are fine, and oftentimes more economical to the homeowner, many Buyers prefer the idea of a central AC system.

Before we move to the value of the unit itself, I want to take a brief moment to stress that it is of utmost importance, that whatever air conditioning system you have in your home, it needs to be kept up with all the maintenance schedules! If there are any issues with the unit itself, to make sure it is taken care of as soon as possible!

The most common questions we get with the AC system for Buyers is, what is the service history?

If we are unable to answer that question, we quickly run into an issue!

Central AC systems are not cheap. They are oftentimes one of the most expensive pieces of a mobile home, with most of the units costing between $4,000-$8,000.

Enjoying cool air is the benefit, and to be honest, really the point of having an AC system in the first place. Expect that the actual cost of the home unit itself will not translate to the same amount of dollars at the closing table. Having a central AC system, especially if it is a newer unit will be a great selling point, and yet another way to sell your home quickly. However, this does not mean that you will get what you paid for the unit at the time of closing.

While I do not have a direct percentage that will carry over on to the sale of the home, what I can tell you is enjoying the cool air will need to be part of the value you place on the unit when it is time to sell your mobile home.

We look forward to continuing our “What Is My Sarasota Mobile Home Worth” series next week so make sure you come back to learn more!
