Looking at buying or selling a mobile home on leased land in the greater Sarasota Florida area?
If so, you came to the right place to learn as much as you can about the process!
We, here at The Mobile Home Dealer are licensed mobile home brokers within the state of Florida and specialize in selling mobile homes on leased land throughout the Sarasota Florida area.
What happens if you are out of state or out of the country and see a mobile home that sparks your interest but is not in a place to be able to come to take a look at it before the opportunity passes itself by?
Do you live out of state and are concerned about if the mobile home will be sold before you are able to make it down to see it in person?
With how fast the real estate market is selling right now one needs to be focused on moving as quickly as they can if and when they find the mobile home that meets their needs throughout the greater Sarasota Florida area.
In order to move as quickly as possible every Buyer and Seller should be open to utilizing the latest technology and being okay with buying a mobile home virtually without physically stepping foot into the property itself.
When looking at buying or selling a mobile home on leased land it is important to know that these mobile homes are viewed as and taxed as personal property in the state of Florida and not as traditional real estate.
What this means is that the home that is being bought or sold has a title associated with it and not a deed like traditional real estate does. Without a deed, these homes follow the same buying and selling process as that of a vehicle in the state of Florida.
With this understanding, the closing process of either the buying or selling of one of these mobile homes on leased land in the greater Sarasota Florida area is one where the Buyer and Seller do not need to be present to complete.
In a traditional closing of a real estate property, there are several documents, offices, and trained professionals involved in the transaction. It is not uncommon to have realtors, brokers, title agents, and bankers all involved in the closing of a real estate transaction.
When buying a mobile home on lease land many of these professionals are not present.
The reason for this is that a mobile home transaction on leased land involves just the Buyer’s and Sellers’ signatures while the closing documents can be orchestrated by a licensed mobile home broker such as The Mobile Home Dealer.
When we complete a transaction then many times the Buyer and Seller are not present as we do everything virtually through courier service so that both the Buyer and Seller have the documents they need and execute them in a timely fashion. Once we have the signatures on all the agreements for the purchase and sale of the mobile home we can then use our state license to get the title and registration out of the seller’s name and into the Buyer’s name without either party needing to be present.
It is not surprising that the mobile home market moves just as fast if not faster than the real estate market does. When a good property is listed, many times, it is sold before it is even on the market due to the Sellers, such as we at The Mobile Home Dealer, having a long list of qualified Buyers ready to buy at a moment’s notice. When a property comes up a Buyer has to move quickly!
With the rise in virtual meetings and phone calls that have risen dramatically in the past two years since the pandemic, it is far more normal now than ever before that the Seller is capable of showing their home virtually through either a Zoom call, a Facetime call or a YouTube video. If this is new technology to you look to embrace it and learn the basics so that you are able to see a mobile home through one of these mediums and not rely on traditional still photos.
If you see a home for sale by one of our agents and are interested in learning more but do not feel like you have the time to come down to Florida just to take a look at the mobile home before it sells do not let this be a deterrent to your purchase at all. We at The Mobile Home Dealer will always be happy to set up a time to give you a private video tour of the home to help you get a better idea of exactly what the home is and what the home is not so that you feel as comfortable as possible before moving forward with your new mobile home purchase.
We at The Mobile Home Dealer usually complete these video chats through our cell phones where we connect directly with you, the Buyer.
Most all cell phones these days have the capability on them to provide this type of service and if you are not familiar with the technology then we will be more than happy to walk you through it so that you feel as comfortable as possible with using it.
When looking at buying or selling a mobile home on leased land in the greater Sarasota Florida area it is always important to know that by working with a trusted licensed mobile home broker such as The Mobile Home Dealer you will have far less to worry about and will have the security in knowing everything is being done right!
