How to Sell Your Mobile Home With a Mortgage in Texas

Selling a mobile home can feel impossible, especially if you have a mortgage on the property. However, it’s not impossible to sell your mobile home with a mortgage in Texas. With the right approach and guidance, you can successfully sell your mobile home and pay off your mortgage. In this blog post, we’ll discuss six tips mobile homeowners should know about selling a house they own money on and how Journey Mobile Homes can help facilitate the process by providing a fast and direct sale.

1. Understand Your Mortgage

The first thing you need to do if you want to sell your mobile home with a mortgage is to understand your mortgage. This means knowing the terms of your mortgage, including the interest rate, monthly payments, and any penalties for early repayment. You should also find out if there are any prepayment penalties or fees associated with paying off your mortgage early. By understanding your mortgage, you can make informed decisions about selling your mobile home and paying off your mortgage.

2. Determine Your Equity

The second thing you need to do is determine your equity. Equity is the difference between the current market value of your mobile home and the amount you owe on your mortgage. If your mobile home is worth more than you owe on your mortgage, you have positive equity. If your mobile home is worth less than you owe on your mortgage, you have negative equity. If you have positive equity, you can use the proceeds from the sale of your mobile home to pay off your mortgage. If you have negative equity, you may need to come out of pocket to cover the difference, in order to sell your mobile home for less than you owe on your mortgage.

3. Price Your Property Competitively

One of the most important factors in selling a mobile home with a mortgage is pricing it competitively. If your property is priced too high, it may sit on the market for months without any offers. On the other hand, if it’s priced too low, you may not get the full value of your property. To price your property competitively, you need to consider factors such as the local market conditions, the condition of your property, its age, size, and the features and amenities it offers. You should also take into account the amount you owe on your mortgage and any fees associated with selling your manufactured home.

4. Make Necessary Repairs and Improvements

If you want to sell your mobile home with a mortgage, you need to make sure it’s in good condition. This means making necessary repairs and improvements to ensure that your property is attractive to potential buyers. Some common repairs and improvements include fixing leaks, replacing outdated fixtures, and repainting walls, steam cleaning carpets, pressure washing the exterior. By investing in these improvements, you can increase the value of your property and make it more appealing to buyers. Just be sure not to overspend, you don’t want to cut into your profits. 

5. Consider a Direct Sale

If you need to sell your mobile home with a mortgage quickly, a direct sale may be the best option for you. A direct sale involves selling your property directly to a buyer without the need for a real estate agent or listing on the open market. This can save you time and money, as you won’t need to pay agent commissions or deal with the hassle of staging and marketing your property. And by selling your mobile home quickly, you can potentially save thousands of dollars in holding costs like lot rent, utilities, insurance, mortgage payments, taxes, etc. Journey Mobile Homes is a reputable and experienced direct mobile home buyer who can offer you a fair price for your home and close on a sale quickly. By working with Journey Mobile Homes, you can save time and money when trying to sell your mobile home without the hassle of traditional home-selling methods.

6. Work with a Reputable Mobile Home Broker to Sell Your Mobile Home

If you decide to sell your mobile home with a mortgage on the open market, it’s important to work with a reputable licensed mobile home broker. A good broker can help you price your property competitively, market your property effectively, and negotiate with potential buyers. We have a simple 30 day process we use at Journey Mobile Homes to sell mobile homes for owners from time to time. Our first choice is always a direct sale where we purchase the home directly for cash. But in certain situations it makes more sense for us to broker the home. We simply agree to a price, sign a 30 day Purchase and Sale Agreement, then market the home to our list of cash buyers. We take care of showing the home, securing an end buyer, all of the closing paperwork, and there are NO commissions or fees! This can work well if a home needs to be moved and we don’t currently have a lot to put it on or if it doesn’t meet our purchasing criteria st that time but we know we can sell it. We have successfully done this many times and it can be a great strategy. If you have more questions about how this works feel free to give us call anytime at 210-504-8388. We can help you navigate the complex process of selling a manufactured home with a mortgage and ensure that all legal and financial requirements are met.
