If you’re getting ready to sell your mobile home, then you might be anxious to publish your mobile home listing as soon as possible so that you can find the right buyer. However, as the seller it’s important to do your due diligence to ensure your mobile home listing has the right elements to sell your home quickly.
Here is everything a mobile home listing should have before you click “sell”:
The Right Photos
A good mobile home listing will show off the visual appeal of your home with strong, high-quality photos. This is not only your first opportunity to make a positive visual impression on buyers with your home, but it’s perhaps the most important one.
Some mobile home sellers may find it’s worth investing in a photographer to capture high-quality photos of your mobile home from the inside and outside, to ensure that your home’s best qualities shine. You also will want to stage your mobile home, similar to how you would for a mobile home tour.
Different listing options on MHVillage allow for multiple photos on one listing, with some even allowing for unlimited photos, giving you full power when it comes to visually displaying your home.
The Right Language
When writing a description for your mobile home listing, there’s some work you’ll have to do to ensure it attracts as many potential buyers as possible.
Take some time and care to show off everything that your home has to offer, from the flooring to the appliances to the size of the house.
Don’t forget to mention any recent upgrades that the home has had. For example, if you replaced your mobile home’s roof within the last five years or have recently painted, mention that in your listing. Buyers are attracted to homes where the “big ticket items” have been recently upgraded.
Think of it this way: what are all of the things you value in your home that your buyer would also value?
The Right Information
Above all else, it is crucial that your mobile home listing contains accurate information about your home. This includes, but is not limited to:
- Number of bedrooms and bathrooms
- Square footage
- Condition of the home, both exterior and interior
- The correct address and location of the home
- Whether the home is in a community
- Which appliances are included
If you’ve omitted any important information from your mobile home listing, you may find yourself in a few scenarios.
For one, potential residents may either inquire about where the missing information can be found, or decline to engage with your listing altogether. This makes it incredibly important to ensure the information you include on your home is accurate.
If a resident were to tour your mobile home and find that some information, such as the number of bedrooms, didn’t match the listing, that may also turn buyers away.
The Right Price
As a mobile home seller, you’re motivated to get the most value from your home as possible. That’s why it’s so important to ensure that your home is priced at the right value so that you don’t lose out on money from your sale.
Do some research in your market to see what homes similar to yours have sold for in the last few months. That will give you a starting idea of where you should price your home at.
If you’re selling your home the FSBO way, you should also seek out a mobile home appraisal to ensure your home is valued correctly before listing. Datacomp offers mobile home appraisals prior to FSBO listings.
