Compare Hiring An Agent vs. A Direct Sale Of Your Mobile Home

When you decide to sell your Texas mobile home, we encourage you to compare mobile home selling options you have at your disposal. While some people will benefit from hiring an agent, mainly those selling a mobile home with land which makes it a real estate transaction, many will benefit from a direct sale. Which could be a mobile home on land, a mobile home in a park, or a mobile home that needs to be moved. Some people selling their Texas mobile home by itself can benefit from working with a licensed Mobile Home Retailer/Broker. We, Eric and Paul at Journey Mobile Homes are licensed through the TDHCA to buy and sell mobile and manufactured homes in Texas. Our first choice is always to buy the mobile home directly, quickly and for cash. However some situations do come up where we might be able to offer a higher price by selling your mobile home for you. It’s an easy process and we only do it when we are confident we can get it done in under 30 days. This will normally be homes that don’t meet our specific buying criteria at a certain times. Sometimes we have lots to put a Singlewide on but not a doublewide and sometimes the opposite. Sometimes we are looking for newer homes and sometimes it doesn’t really matter. There are certain mobile home communities that don’t like working with investors 😔 if your home is in one of those communities and we buy it they will not approve any of our buyers when we go to sell the mobile home. So there are lots of different scenarios and our buying criteria changes from time to time but we will always want to see your mobile home and make you a cash offer! So what will be the right choice for you? In the table below, you will see some of the differences you can expect when selling your used mobile home in Texas. Please call us, Eric and Paul, if you have any questions! 210-504-8388

*An inspection contingency lets the buyer have time to do an inspection and back out of the sale or negotiate a new price if there are repairs that need to be done. If you can’t come to an agreement with the buyer, the buyer has the right to back out of the sale. Similarly, a financing contingency gives the buyer the wiggle room to back out of the purchase if they can’t obtain a loan or if the manufactured home doesn’t appraise for the value that the bank needs to close the loan.

Here at JourneyMobileHomes, we don’t use bank financing, we use our own money, so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.
