Ready to Sell your Manufactured Home?

I'm thinking about selling my home. Trust a Realtor® that is a lender too.

You have options when it comes to selling your manufactured home. Which is best for you? Should you try to sell your home by yourself? Should you work with a mobile home dealer to sell your home? You're aunt Martha has a friend that is an agent? How many mobile home deals has she closed?

The California manufactured home market is unique and has some special requirements. 

Selling your mobile home

For Sale by Owner

This is a good way to go if you know the buyer or have a good network in your community.  But if you decide to go into the open market by yourself,

you may be in for a disappointment.  Statistics show FSBOs sell primarily to cash buyers at lower than market values. If you do decide to sell yourself, Craigslist will be your best distribution network.

Just remember, professionals market on Craigslist too so you will need to be special and manage your ads to stand out. Find a good escrow company to manage your closing and titling. 

For Sale by a Dealer

In California, a licensed manufactured home dealer can sell your home in a land lease community. Most used home sales by dealers are handled under net sales agreements. This means the seller is guaranteed a net figure from the sale and the dealer keeps the rest. That's great if a buyer agrees to pay the exact sales price you want. But they don't. Dealers are not real estate agents and don't participate in the MLS. This means no wide area distribution to real estate agents that represent home buyers in the market.  Remember, only a REALTOR® can sell your home and land.  We provide comprehensive services, including new home sales through our licensed dealership but it's not how we sell used homes.

For Sale by Aunt Martha's friend who happens to be a part-time agent 

Just don't do it. The list of reasons is just too long.
