  • Spring Cleaning On Another Level

All potential buyers want to walk into a spotless home. They are generally turned off with any amount of clutter, mess or even your own personal touches (pictures of family for example).

Our advice would be to either start getting your hands dirty, hire a cleaning service, or enlist friends to help you divide up the work.

Keeping your mobile home spotless is extremely important, because first impressions are everything and buyers need to be able to picture themselves living there. It can be difficult to do that if the property is messy, full of clutter or looks as though you have no intention of moving out.

  • Adopt A Cohesive, Neutral Style.

You don’t have to paint everything white, but staying with neutral colors is always the best option. The style of the home should also be conservative with a few homy touches. For example, some comfy throw pillows and simplistic artwork are nice additions.

Some areas of the home you want to pay extra attention to are the living room, kitchen, bathroom and master bedroom.

Again, this is to help potential buyers picture themselves living in your space. Having a clean, neutral style will help them visualize making your property their future home. Also, research shows that people will spend more money on a home if the colors are right and the style is pleasing to the eye.

  • Fix or Replace Anything That’s Broken.

We understand it might feel like a waste of money to spend an extra money on a appliances that someone else might pull out and replace. But quite a few buyers will get a home inspection and use the chance to negotiate with you if something isn’t up to code.

 As the seller, you’ll often end up paying more if you try to hide neglected maintenance from the buyer – and of course you don’t want to be guilty of fraud.

Ensure you stay in compliance with all the laws.

It’s often a good use of money to hire a home inspector to come through before you put the property on the market. If you ask in advance, they’ll often charge you a small rate to come back after you’ve done a bunch of small repairs and deliver you a clean bill of health.

Prospective buyers love to see an independent report on the condition of the mobile home – it makes them feel very safe with the purchase.

  • Make only necessary improvements.

The biggest mistake people make when getting their mobile home ready to sell is over-improving. They often spend too much money on customized fixtures that can’t be recovered in the sale.

Paint is about the only safe investment – it’s easy to overspend on other areas of the home, and it’s easy to get ripped off by untrustworthy contractors. Our advice would be to research local contractors, and what buyers are looking for in a new home.

It’s important to know what improvements will produce a return on investment to avoid wasting money. For example, getting modern appliances for the kitchen is a good investment, because you can use this to up the listing price.

  • Get Expert Opinions.

You should definitely find a few decent real estate agents who will help you price your property. However, if you’re going to market the property on your own, don’t make enemies by lying about your motives.

If you choose to work with an agent they’ll handle much of the listing process, but this means a portion of your sale will go to their commission fee.

Great brokers are rare, but they make more money for their clients than they earn.

  • Have A Really Great Marketing Plan.

Again, great realtors earn their value by doing much of the marketing process for you. If you give them a timeframe to work with they’ll hustle to make your sale happen.

It’s pretty expensive and time-consuming to start from scratch on your own, but if you’re already a marketing expert you’re ahead of everyone else.

If you’re not, spend the time listening to what the best brokers do to sell mobile homes. This may take some time, but it could be worth it if it gets you top market value.

  • Get A Cash Offer.

If all else fails, my team and I are Direct Mobile Home Buyers. We do all the work so you don’t have to deal with any of the stuff above, which saves you endless hours of stress.

Getting an all cash offer for a property as-is means you’ll likely come up on a profit, rather than spending out of pocket. After adding up the cost of cleaning, repairs, inspections and hiring an agent (if you go that route) you may find its easiest to work with someone who is ready to buy now.

Don’t Want To Do The Things Above Yourself, But Still Want To Sell Your Mobile Home?

Everyone wants to get as much as they can from their mobile home sale, but not everyone can do the things or wants to do the things needed to sell it at full retail value.

If you have the resources to do these things AND you can wait the 3-9 months it takes to sell homes in this market, then you’ll be better off financially.
