What Do I Need To Do To Sell My Mobile Home In San Antonio, Texas?

You want to sell your San Antonio mobile home, and you want to get top dollar. Here is what you need to do or some options that you have.


But “What do I need to do to sell my mobile home in San Antonio, Texas”?

Here are some helpful tips on how to get your mobile home ready to sell if you’re looking for top dollar that the market will bear:

*NOTE: These instructions are if you’re looking to get full retail value for your mobile home sale.  However, if you don’t want to do the things below… or don’t have the time or money to do the things below… you can still sell your San Antonio mobile home fast for a fair value in a win-win sale that’ll save you time and expense.

1) Clean, clean and clean. Even vacant mobile homes get dusty and dirty, so keep it up! Nothing short of gleaming perfection will impress buyers. If you’re not a total clean freak, hire someone who is to help you out until you sell.

If you’re a slob, consider finding somewhere else to live while you show your mobile home. Maybe you can bribe your cleanest friend to trade mobile homes with you? Seriously, keeping everything immaculate really helps buyers feel comfortable in your space. Nothing stops people faster from buying faster than feeling grossed out. Even if the home needs a lot of repairs just cleaning it, getting rid of clutter, having it looking it’s best and smelling great goes a looooooong way. Take pride in it even it’s an old beat up mobile home, I promise it will help ALOT

2) Cultivate a cohesive, neutral style. You don’t have to paint everything off-white. In fact, some subtle colors can really help change the perception of spaces – for example, a soft yellow will help brighten up a dark kitchen, while a deep dark blue or green will help a bright bedroom to feel like a calm place to sleep (but be careful, dark colors will also make rooms feel small).

Spend the extra money to get high-quality paint and professional help. Subconsciously people will pay more money for a property with just the right colors and very neat lines – it makes the mobile home feel better built, even though it’s just paint. Paint is also one of the biggest bangs for your buck when it comes to renovations. A fresh coat of nice paint can have a dramatic effect

Optical illusions are real, and psychologists study this stuff. Don’t believe me?

Look it up. And don’t neglect the outside and just do the inside, or anything else that’s unbalanced. Painting the outside will help your mobile homes curb appeal. It’s the first thing people notice when they drive up. Cleaning up the yard and a little landscaping go a long way, even if it just a couple potted plants.

3) Fix or replace anything that’s broken. Yeah, it might feel like a waste of money to spend an extra couple hundred bucks on a dishwasher that someone else might just pull out and replace again. But really, quite a few buyers will get a home inspection and use the opportunity to negotiate with you. As the seller, you’ll often end up paying more if you try to hide neglected maintenance from the purchaser – and of course you don’t want to be guilty of fraud.

Make sure you stay in compliance with all the laws.

It’s often a good use of money to hire a home inspector to come through before you put the property on the market. If you ask in advance, they’ll often charge you a tiny rate to come back after you’ve done a bunch of minor repairs and deliver you a clean bill of health. Prospective buyers love to see an independent report on the condition of the mobile home  – it makes them feel very comfortable with the purchase. This mostly only applies to mobile homes on private land where a realtor is involved. Most of the time when selling a mobile home inside a park people do not hire inspectors. The buyers typically just walk through, ask questions, and inspect the mobile home them self.

4) Make only necessary improvements. The biggest mistake people make when getting their mobile home ready to sell is over-improving. They often spend too much money on customized frills that can’t be recovered in the sale. Some repairs are will not get you a return.  A mobile home is expected to have a functional roof, plumbing, electric system, and water heater. Those things just bring the home up to the base value. Keep in mind mobile homes in parks depreciate over time, meaning they loose value. They don’t typically go up in price over time like real estate or regular single family homes, unfortunately. The best thing you can do is keep up with all the maintenance, fix things when they brake. Take good care of the home and even though it will loose some value over time it won’t be nearly as big of a loss as if you let the home go to 💩:)

Paint is about the only safe investment – it’s easy to overspend on almost everything else, and it’s easy to get ripped off by unscrupulous contractors.

It’s important to know what improvements will produce a return on investment to avoid wasting money.

5) Get expert opinions. You should definitely find at least a few decent real estate brokers or RBI License holders for Manufactured/Mobile Homes who will help you price your property, but be honest with them. If you’re going to market the property on your own, don’t make enemies by lying about your intentions. Great brokers are rare, but they make more money for their clients than they earn. ✅ TRUE

6) Have a really great marketing plan. Again, great brokers earn their value by doing this work and spreading the advertising expenses across many clients. It’s pretty expensive and time-consuming to start from scratch on your own, but if you’re already a marketing expert you’re ahead of the pack.

If you’re not, spend the time listening to what the best brokers do to sell mobile homes in San Antonio – just to educate yourself on the options.

7) Get a cash offer. We buy mobile homes all over the San Antonio and central Texas area, and we do all the work so you don’t have to deal with any of this stuff.
