Yvonne, you’re new at this right?!? A 1980 Mobile home usually sells here in our area for between $3,000 and $13,000. The $13,000 is usually rare and considered very high. Of course this is just the Mobile w/o any land. Most are purchased in a Park which is owned by someone else and therefor the cost of land is not an issue.

Hi. Saw a mh today for sale and called to get the info on it and was amazed. This was a 14x70 singlewide, 1980, in descent shape. Had a little porch built on and sat on about a 3/4 acre lot. The guy said he wanted 35,000 for it. It was all I could do not to say HUH? Just wondering, is it just me or is this a bit outrageous? Its a low income area in a so so neighborhood, do people really sell these things for this much?

Matt, This person is just trying to get a great deal for himself. You’ll find it all the time. Just pass asn move on to another deal. You may also find that if you offer a really low price they just might take it.

Just read your post and really don’t know the answer to your question. I guess it depends upon the market and in Georgia, as I understand it, you are in the mobile home capitol of the country. 3/4 acre lot with a 21 year old mobile home doesn’t really impress me, particularily at $35,000.

Matt, I don’t know what land sell’s for in Georgia but I believe the mobile home would be worth no more than maybe $2,500 to $3,000. Assuming you bought the mobile home for $3,000.00, that mean’s you’re paying $32,000.00 for less than an acre of land. I would really have to pass on a deal like that, unless there is oil just beneath the mobile home.

Anyway, that’s my .02 cents worth, wishing you good luck,

What price were you expecting to pay? You can’t get something for nothing. Do your research and discover that there is this thing called inflation.
