You can be the most proficient at choosing the right mobile home or at hiring the right team but at the end of the day, your success in this industry comes down to presentation. People don’t want to buy mobile homes that look trashy – do you blame them?
The not-so-secret to sales is that buyers want to be pleasantly surprised by what they find inside when selecting a mobile home for purchase.
When it comes to what you should and shouldn’t spend money renovating it’s ultimately up to you, of course. And it’s true that I have purchased and sold mobile homes before sans reno – but you will likely find more success if you keep the following tips in mind.
Renovating the exterior of a mobile home doesn’t have to be expensive. You can stick to simplicity. It really just needs to look clean and up to date. Little things like replacing porch lights or doorbells that look old and worn out make a big difference to a potential buyer.
The inside of the mobile home is where renovations are the most important!
- You want to think about neutral colors when it comes to wall paint.
- You also should consider the lure of hardwood or laminate flooring.
You will truly get the most payoff for your renovation dollar in the kitchen and the bathrooms. Though, you don’t have to go crazy and do a complete gut job!
- Replacing appliances, putting in a new backsplash, new flooring, and painting are things that make a big impact.
- You can also keep in mind the two C’s: Cabinets and Countertops. Having these two things looking nice and new is very important.
- Bathrooms are easy as well, putting in new faucets and replacing anything that needs to be replaced are two simple ways to up the value of the bathrooms in the home.
Renovating can seem daunting, but it can actually be very simple. As long as you keep an eye on your numbers and keep your focus on your end goal: as much value possible for as little money possible. Don’t forget that small things can make a big impact on a buyer!
