7 Cost Saving Tips for Staging Your Home to Sell

Is your mobile home for sale?  We’ve compiled 7 easy tips for staging your home that will help you impress home shoppers and save you money.  These are simple things you can do to help make your home more marketable.

1. Impress the Drive-By – If you have your manufactured home for sale, you may have seen these folks slowly driving by in their cars checking out your community.  It’s a common weekend activity for those shopping for a new home.  When your manufactured home is for sale, make sure you impress those drive-bys in the 30-45 seconds you have their undivided attention!  Your lawn should be well maintained and landscaping tidy.  In winter climates, keep the leaves raked up and last summer’s flowers pruned back.  Move trash and recycle containers out of view, and make sure sidewalks and stairs are well swept.  Stand in the road outside your home and try to look at it with a buyer’s eye, what can you do to make it appear more inviting?

Tip: Make sure people driving by have your phone number.  A well placed, clearly written For Sale sign can really help.  The MHVillage Seller’s Kit (Free with your listing) includes a big window sign for your home.

2. Clean Up Outdoor Structures – Don’t forget to shine up your outdoor areas.  These areas can be easily forgotten, but when buyers come to your home they will be seeing them for the first time.  Now is a great time to clean up the shed and make sure tools are neatly put away.  Look at the carport, especially up near the roof.  This is an area that attracts dirt – and bird’s nests.  Have deck or patio?  Make sure they are clean and look welcoming.  In warmer climates, spruce them up with flower pots, in colder areas, make sure the walks and structures are free from snow and ice.
