There’s an insane amount of details to keep together, plus the stress of whatever is making you move in the first place – often it’s a new job, a sick relative, or even an eviction but the true need to move always comes with a dramatic change. Sometimes out of our control, but not to worry! We are here to help.

Although the market is relatively stable right now in New Braunfels, things can change in the blink of an eye. There are always ups and downs. We’ve heard some serious horror stories over the past couple of years with everything going on in the economy. Unless you’re filthy rich, you probably can’t afford to wait it out.

So how do you make the right choices when you’re relocating and need to sell your New Braunfels, Texas mobile home fast?

Moving And Need To Sell My Mobile Home Fast In New Braunfels… Your Options And Steps


  1. Find out what your mobile home is worth: To do this you can contact a reputable real estate agent if the home is on private land being sold with the land, or connect with us and we can give you a no cost no obligation valuation on your property. Wether it is on private land or in a park. There are many variables such as location, age, size, bedrooms/bathrooms, central AC or window units, Singlewide or doublewide, does the home need to be moved, and the actual condition of the home itself. Once you know what your mobile home may be able to sell for in the current market… that sets the basis for how long you may or may not be able or willing to sell your mobile home.
  2. Decide how fast you need to sell your mobile home after you relocate: This is a biggie. We’ve seen folks who moved out of state for a job who have had their mobile home on the market for 6+ months before selling it for a much much lower price than they hoped, combine that with 6 months of lot rent down the drain and it really adds up! Decide how fast you need to sell your mobile home… and how long you’re willing to keep making multiple mortgage payments, insurance payments, lot rent, utilities etc.
  3. Find a solid real estate agent BEFORE you start packing boxes: Get the ball rolling early so you don’t waste any time. Every month that you wait or every month that it takes to sell the mobile home… costs you money.  Or if you don’t want to use a real estate agent to sell… Journey Mobile Homes is a reputable local mobile home buyer and we’d love to make you a fast-fair all cash offer.

  4. Calculate the value of selling your mobile home fast vs. “waiting it out” for a dream price: We all want to sell our mobile homes for as much as possible. But one thing many people forget to do is come up with the amount that is costs just to hold onto the property while you trying to sell it. The costs involved include the mortgage, insurance, taxes, maintenance, lot rent, utilities, etc.Lets say you want to sell your mobile for $70,000… and your mortgage payment is $700/mo, taxes $100/mo, $100/mo for insurance, $100/mo for maintenance (lawn maintenance, repairs while you’re gone, etc.), and $600/mo for lot rent.Those expenses add up to $1,600/mo in “non equity building” expenses.If it takes you 7 months to sell that mobile home through a real estate agent for that $70,000… it cost you $11,200 in DIRECT “holding costs” + you had to pay $4,200 in real estate agent fees (assuming 3% for the buyers agent and 3% for the sellers agent). Totaling $15,400 in LOST money!  That doesn’t even account for the value of your time, your stress in thinking about that property sitting on the market, the opportunity cost of what you could have been doing with that extra money during those 7 months, etc. So the real cost to you was likely closer to $30,000. But, what if you were to sell your mobile home next week and avoid all of that? Even if you sold for a discount below the retail price (lets say… $50,000)… you’re still ahead of the game by selling the mobile home NOW at a discount to a mobile home buyer like Journey Mobile Homes vs. 7 months later at full price (and paying holding costs and real estate agent fees). Make sense?
  5. Gather documentation: Collect all relevant paperwork, including the Statement of Ownership, lien or release of lien documentation, tax statements – including the current year “prepaid and escrowed” taxes, any warranty information, and installation documentation. For Texas mobile homes – there’s actually a lot of paperwork required to sell your mobile home. Journey Mobile Homes can handle all of the paperwork for you so that you don’t have to
  6. Take action!: Whatever you decide… decide and take action.  If you want to go the real estate agent route, great! Find a reputable local New Braunfels, Texas agent. If you’d rather not have to wait and not have to pay real estate agent commissions… then a viable option may be to sell your mobile home to Journey Mobile Homes!

If you’ve got a lot of time on your side and a really great property, you might want to test the market by offering it out at a high price. There’s a small chance someone might just fall in love and be willing to overpay – people do crazy things for love. I know I have 😜

Most properties are pretty average, in reality. They tend to be like the other mobile homes around them, in the same way that people who live near each other tend to have a lot in common too. So unless your property is truly exceptional, as in magazine-quality extra-special, you won’t capture the most money in the market by pricing at the highest point.

You can also win by marketing your property for rent and sale at the same time, just to see what happens first. You have to maintain control of the process, which can confuse even seasoned real estate brokers.

Journey Mobile Homes can buy your mobile home regardless of repairs needed, liens, back taxes, evictions – if you want to sell your mobile home fast and you don’t have the time or energy to do everything yourself, we can buy your mobile home “AS-IS”.
