Costs of Selling Your Dallas, Texas Mobile Home With an Agent vs. to an Investor

The decision to sell your mobile home is a big one. Now that you’re ready to sell, you must consider the method you select to sell your mobile home. While most homeowners first thought is to call a licensed real estate agent, why not consider the alternative of selling to a professional investor, like those at Mobile Home Offers. 

Real estate all comes down to the numbers, so it is helpful to understand the differences in the costs between selling your Dallas, Texas mobile home with an agent versus to an investor.

Agent –

Marketing expenses for selling your Dallas, Texas mobile home with an agent are part of the listing contract. They outline all of the steps that the agent will take towards selling the mobile home, which can vary significantly by property.

Listing costs will include anything you must do to prepare to sell your Dallas, Texas mobile home with an agent. These listing costs could consist of simple cleaning so that it is in ready condition for showings, to significant updates to the mobile home’s interior, appliances, or more. Often, an agent will recommend sellers invest in renovations modernizing the features of a mobile home to meet the demands of technology. Other amenities they may suggest space for two mobile home offices or even the addition of a study area for school-aged children. 

Repairs for any issues with the mobile home will come out of pocket before closing. If the inspection revealed problems with your mobile home that you were previously unaware of, you would also have to pay to complete these repairs. Otherwise, the lender will not approve the loan in many cases. Alternatively, you can expect the buyers to respond with their estimated costs for these repairs deducted from the offer. Avoiding this surprise can be achieved by hiring an inspector.

Staging expenses cover the cost to depersonalize the space, which enhances selling your Dallas, Texas mobile home with an agent. Buyers who tour the mobile home can easily imagine themselves occupying a manufactured home free of personal items or showing a distinct personal taste in decor. You may also encounter storage costs to clear your mobile home of excess belongings.

Advertising expenses should be discussed and agreed to before signing the contract when selling your Dallas, Texas mobile home with an agent. These costs include professional photography for the high-quality images buyers have come to expect as they search listings online and professional drone pilots to provide 360-degree virtual tours.

Commissions are paid for professional services provided, including marketing, paperwork, arranging for inspections, appraisals, and doing all of the footwork to bring a buyer to the door and finally the closing table when selling your Dallas, Texas mobile home with an agent. You can expect to pay a total of around 6 percent of the sales price in commission. 

Holding costs for the duration you have listed your Dallas, Texas mobile home with an agent can quickly add up, especially if you have had to relocate. Suppose your reasons for selling are financial. In that case, the longer that the listing lingers on the market, the more monthly payments for the mortgage, insurance, and taxes, and all of the utilities you will continue to carry. The strain of this situation can cause restless nights and extreme stress for your entire family.

Investor –

An investor has none of these expenses! And because investors pay cash and buy your mobile home as-is in most cases, you can close fast, sometimes in a matter of days!

With little closing time to worry about, it is easy to see how selling your Dallas, Texas mobile home to an investor like the professionals at Mobile Home Offers saves you time and money!
