Depends on the deal - Posted by Tennessee Bob

In My experience, I have tried to stay within 30 minutes from home. However, I have traveled up to an hour to look at homes that need to be moved, but the deal has to be heavily in my favor. I have several parks within 20 minutes of home that like me to move homes in. If a home is in a good park that is an hour away, I plan all the repair work on weekends and plan to be at the home no less than 6 hours at a time. This is the only way that I can justify the drive. When I have a M/H far from home, I list it in a paper that is local to the home and tell callers when I will be there working on it so I don’t have to drive an hour just to show the home. I also hold open houses so I can show the home to as many people as I can in a short period of time. Open houses are great because when more than one perspective buyer is at the home at one time, it gives a sense of urgency to the buyers to close the deal quickly.
Good luck & GOD Bless
