March 23, 2023

Selling your double or single wide home doesn't have to be a hassle. There's a better way to do it, one that you may not have heard about yet.

Selling a manufactured home (MH) can be a daunting task, especially in today's marketplace. However, with the right professional, plan, and preparation, you can successfully sell both doublewide and singlewide MHs. Jeff Brown, a Realtor and MH Subject Matter Expert, has developed a secret sauce that can help you achieve success in selling your MH.

Success in today's MH marketplace requires a Professional.

To achieve success in selling your MH, you need to hire a Realtor who is also a MH Professional. Such a Realtor can help you navigate the complexities of the MH market. They understand that all MHs are not created equal and can help you determine the value of your home. Additionally, they can help you evaluate the value of the options offered by the manufacturer of the home and guide you in the setup and installation of the home, which can affect the sale of the home. Finally, they can also help you evaluate the additions made to the home after setup, such as porches and decks, which add value to your home.

Success in today's MH marketplace requires a Plan.

A successful sale of your MH requires a plan consisting of three synchronized subplans:

1.       The Action Plan: This is what you want to accomplish by selling your MH. Your Realtor and you should develop and agree on this plan before listing your home.

2.       The Marketing Plan: The Realtor's firm should already have a successful marketing plan in place that they can use to promote your MH.

3.       The Listing Plan: This is your firm's written listing process customized using your action plan. It eliminates common surprises such as appraisal, buyer's home inspection, buyer's financing, and buyers' apprehensions about purchasing a MH.

Success in today's MH marketplace requires Preparation.

Preparing your MH ready for sale is essential to achieve success. A good Realtor can help you prepare a "to-do" list, which can significantly reduce your stress levels. Handling issues before listing your MH is a big stress reducer. Common stress reducers include:

1.       Seller Home Inspection - prior to listing your home.

2.       Certification of the MH for the buyer's financing - most Realtors do not know about this.

3.       Home repairs and updating - being proactive saves time and money.

4.       Seller appraisal - takes the guesswork out of pricing your home.
