How to Sell Your Mobile Home in Cibolo: 6 Tips to Streamline the Process

Selling your mobile home can take a lot of time and planning, especially if you’re not familiar with the process. However, with the right approach, you can streamline the process and sell your mobile home quickly and for a great price. In this post, we will discuss six tips to help you sell your mobile home in Cibolo and how a direct sale might be the best option for you.

1. Price Your Mobile Home Correctly

Pricing your mobile home or manufactured home correctly is probably one of the most important factors when trying to sell your property. If you price your mobile home too high, you may not get any interest or offers, and if you price it too low, well that’s money out of your pocket. If you want to price your mobile correctly, it’s best to start by doing a little market research. A really good place to start is on Facebook Marketplace. Be sure to look for mobile homes that are generally in the same area, are of a similar year of manufacture, and in comparable condition as your mobile home. Also, don’t be afraid to reach out to sellers and ask questions about their home – you can gain a lot of insight about local markets this way!

2. Make Repairs and Upgrades

Making repairs and upgrades to your mobile home can help increase its value and make it more attractive to buyers. Some simple repairs and upgrades you can make include fixing leaks, replacing outdated fixtures, and repainting the interior and exterior. You can also consider adding new appliances or upgrading the flooring to make your home more appealing to buyers. Also a little landscaping can go a long way to enhancing the curb appeal of your mobile home. You don’t need to do anything fancy but a fresh cut lawn and a few minutes with a weed eater will spruce things up nicely! We recently wrote a blog post on this exact subject and you can find it here.

3. Stage Your Mobile Home

Staging your mobile home can help potential buyers envision themselves living in the space. The most bang for your buck for staging your mobile so that you can sell it quickly is to clean it! A messy, dirty, and smelly mobile home is a lot harder to sell…trust us! Buyers will appreciate your home a lot more if the space is clean and decluttered. In our experience, its also helpful if you have already moved all of your belongings out. While this isn’t always practical, the more open and spacious your home feels, it’s more likely the buyer will imagine themselves living there – the home will practically sell itself!

4. Advertise Your Mobile Home

Advertising your mobile home is essential to attracting potential buyers. You can start by listing your mobile home on online marketplaces such as Facebook Marketplace, Craigslist, or OfferUp. Many mobile home parks have a community bulletin board where you can put up a flyer or brochure. Putting a For Sale By Owner sign in a window is also super helpful. And if you’re comfortable with it, placing a few “bandit” signs near busy intersections is almost guaranteed to get you some phone calls. You can also consider hiring a real estate agent who specializes in mobile homes to help you market your home. Of course, the easy way is to call Journey Mobile Homes and let us help you directly!

5. Consider a Direct Sale

A direct sale can be a great option for selling your mobile home, especially if there are not as many people looking for mobile homes on the MLS. One issue with the MLS is that because most mobile homes are “personal” they generally aren’t listed – a real problem if your home is in a mobile home community.

A direct sale involves selling your home directly to an end-buyer, without the need for a real estate agent or listing on the MLS. This will help you save time and money on commissions, fees, closing costs, etc. and you can often sell your home quickly and for a fair price. Journey Mobile Homes buys mobile homes directly, and we can provide you with a fair cash offer for your home.

6. Work with a Reputable Buyer

If you decide to sell your mobile home through a direct sale, it’s important to work with a reputable buyer. Look for a buyer who has experience buying mobile homes and who can provide you with a fair cash offer for your home. In Texas be sure that the buyer is licensed by the TDHCA. Licensed buyers are held to a much higher standard than fly-by-night operators! Additionally, make sure the buyer is licensed and insured and has a good reputation in the industry (this information can be researched with the TDHCA).

Another benefit of working with a licensed buyer is that they understand the titling process. An experienced buyer can help guide you through all sorts of issues such as liens, back taxes, back lot rent, probate, etc.

Selling a mobile home in Cibolo can be a straightforward process if you follow these six tips. Pricing your home correctly, making repairs and upgrades, staging your home, advertising your home, considering a direct sale, and working with a reputable buyer can help you sell your mobile home quickly and for a great price.
