Do We Buy Mobile Homes?

Do We Buy Mobile Homes?
Speaker 1:
Good morning. It’s Friday and it’s time to once again for Fan Mail Friday from Rapid Home Deals. The question we have from our seller today and this question came from a young lady that had a serious problem, she had to get a mobile home out of a park in 10 days. So her question was, does Rapid Home Deals buy mobile homes? And the answer to that is yes, we do. We prefer to buy mobile homes that are on their own land but we will also buy them in parks.

Now, my experience with parks is that they don’t seem to have the same level of values that I do. More than once I’ve been denied by the park only to find out later that they went behind my back after I was denied and bought the mobile home from the seller. So that, needless to say, didn’t sit very well.

The other issue with parks is that if the seller has not paid their lot rent in several months, that I’m expected to pay that in order to be able to take possession of the mobile home. Now, according to my lawyer, if that’s the way the rules are written in the park, then that’s what I need to do in order to take possession. I’m sorry, that wasn’t my contract. That was somebody else’s contract. But if that’s the way it is, that’s the way it is. So, if it’s in a park, I’m going to buy that mobile home from you and I’m going to move it out of the park. I’m not dealing with those people.

If the mobile is on its own land, I treat it pretty much like any other house. Now, there’s a couple items that I’ll check in addition. I’m going to take a look at the strapping. That’s usually insufficient in relationship to today’s codes. I’m going to look at the condition of the frame. And I’m also going to look at the leveling to make sure that, especially in a double wide that the two halves are level with each other.

Now, let’s take a third situation. Let’s say that you have a mobile home on a lot and you’re getting ready to build a site built home on that same lot and you need that mobile home out of the way. Will I buy those? Yes, I will. I’ll buy that mobile home from you and move it off your lot. So, if you’re in this situation or if you have a realtor or if you are a realtor with a client that’s in this situation or if you just need to sell a mobile home, give us a call at rapidhomedeals.com (352) 480-0955.
