Selling your mobile home in Oklahoma can be a quick and easy process when you have a plan in place.
While certain selling methods work for some homeowners, you might benefit from thinking outside the box.
Here are 5 tips to take into consideration when it’s time to sell your mobile home in Oklahoma:
1. Clean & Repair
Before making your mobile home available for viewing, you will need to spend some time cleaning up. Remember, a new coat of paint also goes a long way.
Here’s a great little video that highlights some great ways to increase the value of your home — even when building materials are so expensive.
This is also the time to make all of those little repairs you have been putting off.
Make sure all of the major systems such as the plumbing and electrical systems are in working order as a problem with these will greatly affect your mobile home’s value. Don’t forget about the outside of the property. Cleaning up the yard, tending to exterior damage, and adding a couple of plants or a table and chairs can make your property more inviting.
2. Know Who Your Potential Buyers Are
One thing I learned about selling houses is that your buyers have different goals.
Step outside of your shoes and try to understand who is going to buy your house.
Do you have land?
Do they like the proximity?
Is it the price?
Is it a family that needs a storm shelter?
How they answer some of those questions is going to determine the type of buyer they are. Once you have an idea of who your buyer is, market your property that way.
You can go the route of using an agent or you can try to sell it on your own using Facebook Marketplace or sites like Craigslist.
3. Price it Right
Pricing your mobile home correctly can be the difference between selling quickly and having it sit on the market for months at a time.
You’ll want to price it for as much as possible without going too high and driving potential buyers away.
Having to lower your price over and over again can make it appear as if there is something wrong with the property or that you don’t know what you are doing.
A quick way to do this is by using Zillow to determine what similar mobile homes have sold for in the last 3 months.
4. Make It Easy For Buyers To See The Property
If you are using an agent or trying to sell on your own, you’ll need to make the property available for showings.
You want to be as flexible about this as possible, never turning down a showing if you can help it. Sometimes showings are requested at odd times, but it is in your interest to comply with your potential buyer’s request.
You’ll need to clean up the property, get it quickly into showing condition, then make yourself scarce as having the owner around can make a potential buyer feel uncomfortable.
5. Work With A Professional Buyer
The fastest, easiest, and oftentimes the most economical way to sell a mobile home in Oklahoma is to work with a direct buyer.
A direct buyer such as McKinnon Home Buyers will pay you a fair price, free of any repair costs, marketing expenses or commissions.
We can close on your mobile home almost immediately and will make the process incredibly simple and transparent throughout.
You’ll be able to quickly sell your mobile home in Oklahoma using your profits towards a different purchase or investment. Before you call an agent, find out if working with a professional mobile home investor is the right choice for you!
