How To Determine The Value Of Your Mobile Home in Surprise, Phoenix, and Flagstaff

If you are thinking about selling a mobile home in Mesa, Chandler or Phoenix, you will need to determine its value. Learn more about how to determine what its really worth in our latest post!

Estimating the value for a mobile or manufactured home is a bit different than determining the value of a single-family property. By using the tips below, even someone not in the real estate industry will be able to come up with an approximate value.

Inspect The Inside And The Outside

It’s important to know as much as you can about the property you are selling. There will very likely be repairs needed that you hadn’t previously been aware of. Make yourself a checklist, and carefully inspect every square inch of the house.

  • On the inside, take a good look at the electrical system and make sure everything is in working order. Make sure all the switches and outlets are in working order.
  • Check the walls to ensure the stability as well as any damage from water getting in. Do the same with the roof, keeping an eye out for water staining on the ceiling and walls.
  • Check the flooring to make sure there are no soft spots or holes. This a common problem mobile owners face that single-family owners typically wouldn’t need to worry about.
  • Check out the plumbing to ensure all faucets work properly and that there aren’t any leaks.
  • Outside, you’ll want to look for any visible signs of damage to the siding and roof. Make sure there are no dents or places water can get in and that there are no soft spots or missing shingles up on the roof.
  • You’ll want to also take a good look underneath to make sure there is no damage or pests living under the home.
  • Look for any loose wiring or insulation, and repair as needed.

Research Recent Sales

When assessing the value of your mobile home, it is essential to examine recent sales of similar properties in the area. Focus on comparing properties that have recently been sold, rather than ones currently listed for sale. Ensure that the mobile homes being compared are similar in terms of year built, size, and condition.

Explore mobile homes within a 0.5-mile radius in urban areas, a 1-mile radius in suburban areas, and a 5-mile radius in rural areas. Additionally, consider the valuation provided by the county property assessor as a starting point, although it may underestimate the market value. This data can provide valuable insights into determining the market value of your mobile home.

Consider The Neighborhood

While mobile homes are indeed mobile, the location plays a crucial role, especially if you own the land where the mobile home is situated. When assessing the value of your mobile home, take into account local school ratings, crime statistics, access to amenities, and proximity to businesses. A mobile home in a desirable area typically commands a higher selling price compared to one in a less favorable location.

Consult The NADA Manufactured Housing Appraisal Guide

The National Automobile Dealers Association creates a pricing guide for manufactured homes. This is like the Kelley Blue Book of mobile homes. You can either check with your local library for a copy of the physical book, or you can request a report online.

To get a report online, there is a fee, but it will greatly help you if you are unsure of the value of a mobile home. There are multiple reports available at different price points, so you can be sure you are only paying for the information that is important to you. This report will not take into account the value of your land only the structure. The land your mobile home is sitting on can sometimes even be worth more than the mobile home that sits on it. Be sure to do your own research as well, without solely relying on the report… especially if you own the land underneath it.

Hire A Pro

If you choose to hire a professional appraiser for your Mesa, Chandler or Phoenix mobile home, make sure they are well experienced. Appraising a mobile home can be very different than appraising a single-family home, so you will need to make sure they know what they are looking for. Just like any other real estate, your appraiser needs to be accredited. Once they have looked over your property, be sure to review the report independently to ensure nothing was missed!
