Repossessed Manufactured Homes



Manufactured homes can refer to either mobile homes or properties which have been pre-fabricated in a factory and then moved to a housing site to then be lived in.

Purchasing a repossessed manufactured home can be a great investment for first-time homeowners and for those who are on a limited budget. If mobile, they can also be ideal for people who like to travel around. However, making such purchase requires a lot of preparation to make sure that you are getting your money’s worth. Here are a few things to consider when purchasing repossessed manufactured homes.

When looking for repossessed manufactured homes, it is best to check your local real estate agent for listings. Real estate agents will have a comprehensive database for such properties and can also give good advice on the best deals available. It is also best to check with local banks for any manufactured homes being auctioned. More often than not, banks will post a ‘notice to offer’ which opens the property for bidding. Lastly, it is best to check local auction organisers for any properties available in the market. And of course, the internet is a good source of information regarding repossessed manufactured homes. It is best to find a reputable and trustworthy website when looking for a repossessed property to purchase.

Most of these repossessed mobile homes are previously owned by homeowners who are not able to take care of their finances. Thus, it should be expected that repair might be needed. If one is not well-versed with such technical things such as checking the wirings and structural integrity, it is best to ask a professional surveyor or an automotive mechanic to check the property. By doing so, one can also assess if the cost of repair is still worth the investment.

It is also important to check and see if there is already an available land to set up the mobile home. Furthermore, check if the home comes with towing services, if in case there is a need to move it. Additionally, it is recommended to compare the property’s selling price to its actual market value. Comparing prices of other mobile homes in the area will give a good idea if it is good investment.

Lastly, it is important to check on the procedures in purchasing the repossessed property. Some repossessed homes are directly sold to willing buyers, while some are auctioned off. It is important to check the requirements needed before making the purchase, and make sure you are prepared to pay any form of initial payment to hold the property to the buyer.

After everything’s that said, buying a repossessed manufactured home can help one save a substantial amount of money. All it needs is resourcefulness and patience to be able to find your dream mobile home.
