Selling trailer homes?

Has anyone here ever sold a trailer home? I have no experience with it but a friend of mine wants me to help him sell his. It is a double-wide and stationed on a trailer park lot in a nice area. Most folks living there are 50+ and retired. He is one of only 3 on the entire lot in their 30's.

I have not. We really don't have any of those around here, trailer parks I mean. I think the closest one to me is about 40 minutes away. It is regarded as more of a retirement space than anything.

I have not but my brother has. It was his own. He started out with his first home being a trailer home, double-wide. It was a nice one as well but he wanted a yard and privacy when his wife got pregnant so they sold it in about 3 months time and bought their first official house together just after selling it.

We have a few trailer parks in the area but I have never worked with them. Someone else I work with has sold a few there but they are tough sells. Mostly old folks looking to downsize or disabled people want to move into them.

I haven't but I'm considering looking into this.


Trailer homes seem to be getting more popular which will only drive prices up. Now could be a good time to take the plunge.

I have sold one, and just one. It took me almost a year to do it. There is not a huge market in my area and I though it would be an easy sell. It was going for $39,000 for a double wide which to me is a good deal.
