Marketing Your Mobile Home For Sale In San AntonioMarketing your mobile home for sale in San Antonio is different than marketing a single-family home. Learn more about the differences in our latest post!

If you are thinking about selling your mobile home in the San Antoni area. It is important to learn about the different selling and marketing strategies that will work best for your particular mobile home. Keep reading to learn a bit about the different ways you can sell, and the marketing methods that will be the most effective.

Exploring Your Selling Options

Before you explore the different ways to market a mobile home in San Antonio, you should learn about the different ways to sell. You might think that you need to call an agent and jump through all the same hoops people selling single-family homes face, however, this isn’t the case. Of course, you can list your house, but you will have a much smaller market and will have to deal with costs both upfront and after the property closes. You might even find yourself stuck with an agent who isn’t trying as hard to sell your mobile home as you’d like them too. For many agents, mobile homes are out of their wheelhouse, plus, their commission will usually be less, reducing their motivation to help you sell fast.

Some people will opt to sell their property on their own, taking on the entire process of advertising, showing, answering questions, filing paperwork, and processing the closing. It can be a lot of work for someone who has never sold a mobile home in the past. Whether or not you own the land under your mobile home will make a difference in how it is sold.

Another option for selling your mobile home in San Antonio would be to work with a direct buyer. This will eliminate any need to market the property or have to worry about costs before or after the sale.

Marketing That Works

If you do choose to try your luck with an FSBO listing “For Sale By Owner”, you’ll want to employ some strong marketing techniques. Your marketing strategy will be different for a mobile home than they would be for a traditional rental. The market of interested buyers is going to be much smaller, so it can often pay to use some out of the box marketing strategies to make your property stand out. Giving the property tremendous curb appeal and doing things to make the property stand out from others on the block can help you sell your mobile home more quickly in the San Antonio area.

When marketing your San Antonio mobile home, you’ll need to be able to get it in front of the right people at the right time. Take a look at recently purchased homes in the area using Zillow    Who is buying? What are they paying? Utilize any information you gather to market to the right audience. You can also look at Craigslist, Facebook, and OfferUp. Especially if your mobile home is in a mobile home park or if the home is on private land but needs to be moved. If you are only selling the mobile home without any land it is considered personal property and the process is different than traditional real estate transactions. I still recommend working with a licensed mobile home Retailer/Broker though.  Before you can start marketing your mobile home you need to know how much to market the home for. This will require some research on your part. Just because your county tax statement appraises your mobile home at a certain value doesn’t mean if you put it on the market today that you’ll get that amount. There are many factors to take into consideration like year, make, model, Singlewide vs doublewide, central AC vs window units, what condition the home is in, where is it located, does it need to be moved, etc.  If you’re in a park you’ll want to talk to the manager and afk them what similar homes have been selling for. You can look online to see what other comparable homes are listed for, however you’ll need to be careful, just because a seller is asking $25k doesn’t mean that’s what it will sell for. Trust me, when you do put it on the market you will get A-LOT of low ball offers.  So just be sure to look around at a few different sources to get a realistic idea of what your used mobile home might actually sell for.  If you don’t want to mess with all that and just need to get rid of your unwanted mobile home fast for cash, take the easy route and give us a call!

Evaluating The Costs

Once you’ve taken a look at the different options for marketing your mobile home for sale in San Antonio, you’ll want to choose the options that make the most sense financially. Online ads can get pretty expensive, so you will want to ensure you are advertising on the sites that get the most traffic. You might want to consider investing in premium ads to make sure your property is seen by the most potential buyers, however, these ads are even more expensive. You’ll need to pay for professional signage, for the outside of your property so it can be seen by passersby and make finding the home easier for prospective buyers. You’ll also need print materials such as flyers to pass out providing the property specifications. Many mobile home owners will also throw an open house to allow people the chance to come by and see the property without having to schedule a showing. You will likely encounter costs for this as well.

Other costs you might face when listing your mobile home or trying to sell it with an FSBO listing may include professional cleaning, repairs, painting, storage of personal items, and possibly some items to be used for staging purposes. To successfully sell your mobile home quickly, you’ll need to spend some money upfront in preparations. However, if you decide to sell your property directly, all of these costs will be avoided. 

When the time comes to sell your mobile home in San Antonio, it is important to know how to sell for the best price, in the least amount of time. The fastest way to sell your San Antonio mobile home won’t cost you a dime, nor will you have to make any costly repairs to the mobile home.  Selling your mobile home toprofessional mobile home buyers such as Eric and Paul at Journey Mobile Homes, will allow you to sell quickly, get a great price, and be able to move on without being burdened by repairs.
