Mobile Home Sellers Tips

Suggestions to make the Sale of Your Home as Productive, Stress Free and Enjoyable as Possible


FIRST IMPRESSION IS EVERYTHING!

  • Is your mobile home for sale? We’ve compiled a few easy tips for staging your home that will help you impress home shoppers and save you money. These are simple things you can do to help make your home more marketable.

    1. Impress the Drive-By - If you have your manufactured home for sale, you may have seen these folks slowly driving by in their cars checking out your community. It’s a common weekend activity for those shopping for a new home. When your manufactured home is for sale, make sure you impress those drive-bys in the 30-45 seconds you have their undivided attention! Your lawn should be well maintained and landscaping tidy. Move trash and recycle containers out of view, and make sure sidewalks and stairs are well swept. Stand in the road outside your home and try to look at it with a buyer’s eye, what can you do to make it appear more inviting?

    2. Clean Up Outdoor Structures - Don’t forget to shine up your outdoor areas. These areas can be easily forgotten, but when buyers come to your home they will be seeing them for the first time. Now is a great time to clean up the shed and make sure tools are neatly put away. Look at the carport, especially up near the roof. This is an area that attracts dirt – and bird’s nests. Have a deck or patio? Make sure they are clean and look welcoming.

    3. Become a DIY Expert - With the economy being what it is and the time of year, it’s a buyer’s market. Now is the time to go through your home with a sharp eye and look for any small repairs you can make to help your mobile home stand out from the crowd. Simple things like squeaky hinges or loose cabinet doors may only take a few moments to fix, but can make the difference to a picky shopper. It is almost always cheaper to do repairs yourself now (even if you have to hire the work done) than it is to negotiate the cost out of your selling price.

    4. Paint is Your Friend - Speaking of repairs, a can of paint is one of the cheapest ways to give a room a new look. Paint can also clean up smudged or chipped doors and trim. Choose neutral colors that will fit with anyone’s decorating scheme.

    5. Nix Smudged Surfaces - Light switch covers, outlet covers, cabinet doors, and door handles all get a lot of abuse. Frequently they can be cleaned up with a little soap and water, but if they are too far beyond repair, consider replacing these items. Local hardware stores carry all these items and replacing them can be an easy weekend project.

    6. Replace the Mini-blinds - Nothing gets grimier (or is harder to clean,) than mini-blinds. Fortunately, mini-blinds are inexpensive to replace. There are lots of articles out there about how to clean them, but replacing them is often easier.
