Important Things to Consider Before Selling
Preferred allows you to avoid the headaches that come with making typical private party sales. When selling your home to a private party, there are a few important items to consider. Selling to Preferred Homes avoids these hurdles and instead makes the process seamless..
- Inspection: With most private party retail sales, your home will require an inspection by a licensed home inspection agency. Inspections are completed to assess your home’s current state and ensure the condition is up to standards. Preferred does NOT require inspections before purchasing your home.
- Maintenance: Typically, if anything is discovered during inspection, it must be properly taken care of before selling. Preferred doesn’t require you to handle the maintenance of the home prior to selling.
- Check local guidelines: Guidelines for selling your home can vary by city or county. Preferred will check with local officials to discuss your local regulations and ensure those guidelines are met.
- Ask questions: We’re here to help. If you have any questions along the way, our team is prepared to answer them with confidence. Don’t be afraid to ask anything that comes to mind during the sale.
The Process: How to Sell a Manufactured Home
Step 1: Call Preferred Homes

If you agree with our estimate, we’ll schedule an appointment to check out the home in person and make an official offer.
Step 2: Let Us Assess Your Manufactured Home’s Value
We’ll assess the value of your manufactured home in photos first, and then in person. Your specific home’s value may differ from similar manufactured homes based on a few items. Factors like the size and model of the home as well as its current location can all change the value. Timing might also be a factor if the market conditions are volatile. Whether or not you’re the owner of the lot the home is stationed on can make a difference in the value of your home as well.
