Top 5 Things To Do Before Selling Your Mobile Home

There comes a time in just about every homeowner’s life to sell their home. Mobile homes are no different. Here are a few tips to make sure you get the most value out of your home if you are considering selling.

  1. PAINT. If you have wallpapered sheetrock in your home it is very likely that the wallpaper has faded or is outdated at best. It will take several coats of primer to cover up the wallpaper pattern as well as a coat or two of paint. Try to be as neutral as possible when it comes to colors so you can please a wider variety of people. You may love those bright pink walls, but that doesn’t mean the person interested in buying your home does.
  2. REPAIRS. If you have weak spots in the floor, be sure to repair them. Likewise any other problems such as water leaks, missing shingles or roof leaks should be fixed.
  3. FLOOR COVERING. It is likely that unless you recently replaced your carpet and linoleum, that it is time for an upgrade. Carpet will fade over time and get worn down by everyday traffic, and linoleum can get tears and rough edges. Replacing the carpet and linoleum can make a lived in home feel like new to the prospective buyers.
  4. REPLACE PARTS. It’s the little things that matter and replacing your old floor registers, and dingy faucets or sinks, or even light switches can make a big difference in the appeal of a home. Go through your home and do a checklist of everything that’s not up to standards. Most small items like the ones listed are easy to install and inexpensive. Don’t forget the big things, check tubs and showers for discoloration or cracks as well as doors and windows.
  5. CURB APPEAL. Be sure to repair or replace any skirting or siding problems, as well as other exterior items such as shutters. The inside of the home matters, but if the potential home buyer doesn’t like the outside, they will have no reason to see how beautiful it is inside.
