I bought a 1969 home last Monday, and sold it today (Sunday). Out of the four people that visited the home on Saturday, not one was from my newspaper ads. All were from my large real-estate type signs stuck in the ground - at the park entrance, and in front of the home. The bright yellow signs said: Mobile Home For Sale, Open House (and an arrow).
This home was in very good condition (I did do some work on it), with a fantastic kitchen. People came in to see the home, admired it, and then asked the age. They didn’t seem to care about the age, or the 12 foot width, after they had seen the home. I sold it to a single mom with 2 young kids. She’ll have it paid free and clear in just one year, and I’ll have a 104% yield.
I’m glad that my first deal, with such an old home, went so well. Now, I have a 1983 home in another park to sell. I want to thank everyone for all the information they have shared here on this site. Best wishes to you all!
