What Chances Do I Have When Selling My Mobile Home on Craigslist in Jurupa Valley, CA?

When we have something we need to get rid of, where’s the first place we usually think of? Craigslist, of course. But in this case, you have a mobile home for sale. So you’re most likely asking this question: “What chances do I have when selling my property on Craigslist in Jurupa Valley ?”

What are your odds, then? Well, they can be pretty good actually. After all, Craigslist gets roughly 50 billion page views every single month. But you have to get some critical parts of your ad exactly right.

What Chances Do I Have When Selling My Mobile Home on Craigslist in Jurupa Valley

Eight out of 10 people will read the title of a piece of website content, but only two of those 10 will go on to read the remainder of the post. In addition, six of 10 social media users who share a link never actually read the article whose link they shared. The point? You simply have to get the title of your Craigslist ad just right.

You need to write an engaging title, but you should never lie about your mobile home or exaggerate its features. One useful method is to use numbers, especially odd numbers. Here’s an example: “5 Reasons You Should Check Out My Spacious Mobile Home in Jurupa Valley (Hint: Number 3 Is Five Minutes From Stores and Schools)”  Just make sure you give them a reason to take the next actionable step and choose your ad.


Now, in the body, you have to make good on the guarantees you hinted at or made in the headline. Just keep it simple, using brief sentences, lots of space, and lists where appropriate.  And, of course, don’t make the tacky mistake of using bad grammar or run-on sentences or misspellings. People often correlate the quality of the ad copy with the quality of the item for sale.

Also, make sure you include all the important keywords your target audience might be searching for. Craigslist serves up ads based on what people type into the search bar. If you think that your ad isn’t getting the number of views that it should, try experimenting. Change the text and try some different keywords in various places.


Pictures are just as vital as the actual text for selling a mobile home on Craigslist. Most people, though, make the images too large, which not only looks shoddy but makes the page take longer to load. Most people just hit the back button if a page takes longer than a few seconds to load.

Take pictures of entire rooms or areas, not of single items or appliances. If an appliance, say, a refrigerator, will be included in the sale, you can include that fact in the body of the ad copy.

If you use a digital camera, make sure not to leave the date and time stamp in the bottom right corner of the image. Besides giving it a careless, amateurish look, it also dates the picture, which can be a snag if the house sits on the market for any length of time.

Posting Times

Many of the Craigslist experts recommend posting an ad between 10:00 am and noon on weekdays. After 5:00 pm on weekdays also works well (which is what I would do if I were selling my manufactured house in Jurupa Valley on Craiglist – in order to show a fresh ad to all those buyers browsing Craigslist right after they get home from work.) And if you wait until the weekend, morning is the favored posting time.

Selling my mobile home in Jurupa Valley on Craigslist? It’s a real likelihood if done correctly. But if on the other hand, you don’t want to deal with all that after all, we have a much easier solution for you.
