“Selling my Jacksonville mobile home via the traditional home selling process was one of the hardest challenges of my entire life. I wish I knew about BuyingJaxHomes earlier.”
Nearly 22 million people, in the United States, reside in mobile homes.
While people love buying mobile homes and although there’s reportedly been a rise in their popularity plus demand, you’ll find selling your mobile home in Jacksonville, Florida to be extremely difficult.
In fact, it’s way harder than selling a regular home.
There are so many factors that come into play, which is what we’ll be familiarizing ourselves with here.
Factors Affecting the Sale of Mobile Homes
Here’s a list of the factors that might impact your mobile home’s sale:
- Selling Mobile Home as a Personal Property
- Selling it as Real Estate
- Mobile Home’s Location
- Mobile Home’s Condition
- Does it Meet the Safety Requirements?
Selling Mobile Home as a Personal Property
Most sellers, i.e. mobile home owners, not only own a mobile home but also the land.
However, if you don’t own a land, then your mobile home might be located in a mobile home park.
And if that’s the case, then you’ll have to involve the park owner in the entire process, as he/she/they will have a major say in who you should be selling your mobile home to.
In addition to this, the park owner holds the right to reject any incoming deals from your potential buyers and can send you an equally satisfying offer of his/her own.
But if the park owner approves you selling your mobile home to a certain buyer, then it’s upon you to ensure that the buyer meets the rights plus regulations of the mobile home park to avoid any complications in the near future.
Selling Mobile Home as a Real Estate
Own the land as well?
In that case, you won’t be bound by any rules or regulations.
You won’t have to get approval from any park owner or even ensure that your potential homebuyers meet the necessary criteria.
But you shouldn’t ignore the fact that it’s way more difficult to receive any offer for both your mobile home and land.
And that’s the reason I claim, “Selling your mobile home is a lot harder than selling a regular home.”
Mobile Home’s Condition
Mobile home subject to poor insulation, outdated kitchen, drooping ceilings?
If your mobile home is in poor condition, then it will turn off your potential buyers.
The end result? Some of them will consider not getting in touch with you again, while some may send your way a lowball offer.
Mobile Home’s Location
Depending on where your mobile home is located and whether it’s on a land or mobile home park, your mobile home’s value may vary.
Jacksonville’s one of the most popular locations in Florida, with its popularity, as of this writing, at an all-time high.
As a result of it’s ever-increasing popularity, the home values, over the course of the past few years, has risen exponentially.
With that being said, we shouldn’t ignore the fact that mobile home sale in Jacksonville isn’t a piece of cake.
People have recently started showing their interest in buying mobile homes. And if you are looking for an immediate sale, then maybe you will have to deal with a lot of complications.
Does it Meet the Safety Requirements?
Okay, here’s the most important factor you need to(must) take into consideration.
Does your mobile home meet the safety requirements?
Certain safety and quality standards have been set by the current Housing & Urban Development (HUD) code, which your Jacksonville mobile home may not meet if it was manufactured before 1976.
Since it’s implementation, there have been a few changes made, which is why I’d advise you to go through the code, right here.
Home-selling, whether it’s a mobile home or regular one or apartments, should not be a burden on anyone.
It should be like a walk in the park.
