Q: Should I use a realtor to sell my mobile home?
A: The answer is yes and no. At Virginia Mobile Home Buyers, we are committed to educating mobile home owners about the mobile home selling process. We can help you learn the pros and cons of selling your mobile home with realtors in Virginia, and the hidden costs associated with realtors. We follow all the guidelines and laws in the State of VA, making your selling process faster and easier.
Q: Can I move a mobile home by myself?
A: Most manufactured homeowners aren’t scared of tackling any challenge on their own, specially in Virginia. However, we’d strongly advise against trying to move a manufactured home by yourself. Moving a thousand square feet plus, 40-50 ton object is no walk in the park. Neither is all the preparation and setup services required before and after.
If not done properly, it could not only make the move extremely difficult and land you in “hot water” with the law, but it can jeopardize the integrity of your home. There is a very good reason that it becomes harder to finance a home the more times it has been moved – the chances of something going wrong and damaging the structure of the home is just too big.
The only way to tow the home by yourself would be to hire a truck, assuming you have a license. You will also need to hire some extra pairs of hands, rent a crane to lift and move the home, etc. Not to mention, you need to know how to disconnect and connect utilities, separate and join the sections of a manufactured home (if you have a double-wide), and check for any damage to the chassis.
Q: Is everything included in the price of the mobile home move?
A: If you either buy your home new or from a wholesaler/reseller, the chances are good that they will take care of all the transportation for you. Manufacturers often include the transportation at no extra cost when you buy the home. Wholesalers might require you to pay an extra fee to move the home to a specific area.
Q: Can I move my mobile home anywhere?
A: Again, this is a good question to be asking. No, you can’t always move your manufactured home wherever you want. There’s a little something called “wind zone,” and it affects where certain homes are allowed to be moved to.
Q: Can I just sell my mobile home instead, will it be cheaper?
A: Yes, we can help you with selling your mobile home. We are also a cash buyers in Virginia. We buy manufactured homes across the entire state. Click here for more information.
