For every manufactured home buyer, there is a manufactured home seller. While many manufactured home listings are handled by lenders, dealers, or manufactured home communities, many manufactured home sellers choose to sell their mobile home on their own. This is known as a “For Sale By Owner” or “FSBO” listing.
Here, we’ll go over some of the benefits of selling your manufactured home the FSBO way, as well as some benefits of getting the most value out of your mobile home listing:
Why You Should Sell
First, it’s important to go over why it’s such a good time to sell a manufactured home in 2022.
One of the biggest factors is demand. Manufactured home sales are experiencing an uptick thanks to lowered interest rates. Not only does this benefit prospective homeowners thanks to the lower interest, but you as the manufactured home seller also benefit from increased home values over recent years.
The supply of homes is another important factor. Because of a decreased supply of available manufactured homes for sale, homes that do get listed tend to sell quickly. This means that if you sell your mobile home, you have high chances of finding a buyer.
The Benefits of a FSBO Listing
As we mentioned earlier, many manufactured home sellers will work with a dealer or their community management to sell their home. However, sellers are increasingly turning towards FSBO listings.
By going the FSBO route, you can take charge of the mobile home selling process and perhaps save some money along the way. For example, you won’t have to pay any seller’s fees to a dealer or other selling entity, and you may not have to make as many compromises when pricing your mobile home correctly.
The Benefits of an Upgraded Listing
When you create your FSBO listing with MHVillage, you will have a couple of pricing options to choose from: Basic, Featured, and Premium. While all of these listing options give you 24/7 visibility to thousands of MHVillage visitors every day, there are some key benefits to a Featured and Premium listing that will further optimize your FSBO journey:
A Featured or Premium listing can offer manufactured home sellers up to 300% more views on their listing compared to a Basic listing, meaning that your listing gets in front of more buyers that are ready to make offers.
Not only that, but Featured and Premium listings offer you increased visibility in mobile home search results on MHVillage, too, along with a photo thumbnail proudly showing off your home.
By upgrading to a Premium listing, you can take advantage of adding unlimited photos to your listing, allowing you to show off the very best your manufactured home has to offer. This is especially ideal for FSBO sellers looking to add photos of every room in their home to their listing.
If you’re selling your mobile home the FSBO way and want to get the most value out of your mobile home listing, then upgrading to a Premium or Featured listing is the best way to go.
