Sell Your Manufactured Home Fast: A Step-by-Step Guide


As we stride into a brand-new year, many of you might be contemplating changes, and if that includes selling your manufactured home, you're in the right place! This newsletter is your go-to guide for the crucial first steps in the home-selling journey, packed with valuable insights and tips to set you on the path to a successful sale.

1. Evaluate Your Home's Value

Before anything else, it's vital to understand the current market value of your manufactured home:

  • Research recent sales of similar manufactured homes in your area.

  • Take note of any unique features or upgrades that may affect the price.

  • If your budget allows, consider having an inspection done with a certified inspector that has experience in manufactured homes.

2. Title Matters

  • Verify Title Status: Confirm the status of the title. If you want to sell the home separately from the property, you will need to make sure that the title is not dissolved into the land. If it is, it will need to be reinstated, prior to the sale of the home. This is a critical step to avoid complications during the selling process. If you do not physically have the title to your home in hand, it is a good indicator that you may need to reinstate it.

  • Fixing Title Issues:  A good place to start is your counties Auditor and Department of Licensing (note that this is not the DMV). They can help you navigate the reinstatement process. If you get stuck or have questions, consider consulting with legal professionals who specialize in manufactured home transactions.

3. Financial Clarity: No Mortgage Debts

  • Ensure there is no outstanding mortgage on either the home itself or in the case of title dissolution, on the land the home sits on.

  • Explore options if a mortgage is owed. If a mortgage is owed on the home, or on the land that the home's title is dissolved into, it is likely that you will need to work with your mortgage company so that title can be released in order to sell the home.

4. Prepare Your Home for the Market

  • Create a neutral and inviting atmosphere by removing personal items and unnecessary clutter.

  •  Attend minor repairs and touch-ups to enhance your home's appeal.

  • Ensure that all light fixtures have proper and working bulbs. Good light goes a long way.

  • A clean, well-staged home is more likely to attract potential buyers. Showcase your home's best features.

5. Set a Competitive Asking Price

  • Master the art of pricing by setting a competitive asking price, but leave room to negotiate. Knowing the bottom dollar you would like to receive will help keep you from taking a deal that is not in your best interest.

  • Consider hiring a professional appraiser to get an accurate valuation

6. Market Your Home Effectively

  • Utilize online platforms to showcase your home.

  • Feature high-quality photos and detailed descriptions for maximum impact.

  • Consider adding a walk-through video to your listing to give potential buyers a sense of space.

  • Include all of the items you are selling with the home. Appliances, porches, furniture, these included items can often make the difference.

  • Emphasize the distinctive aspects of your manufactured home.

7. Consider Professional Assistance

Collaborate with reputable closing agents or title companies to finalize the sale, ensuring all paperwork is meticulously completed for a smooth transition. Proper paperwork completion saves you form problems in the future. Key Steps:

  • Review Offers: Evaluate offers carefully, considering not only the price but also the terms and conditions.

  • Closing Coordination: Once an offer is accepted, navigate the closing process with the assistance of your agent and legal professionals.
