As is noted below, CraigsList is a good way to find buyers. But many buyers don't have all the cash that's necessary to buy...whether you're asking $5,000 or $25,000. So you sell the home on terms. Rather than advertising "3/2 Fleetwood, $14,900..." you sell on monthly payments. Ask for a small/moderate amount down, and calculate the remainder owed over 3, 4, or 5 years....whatever brings the price down to the clearly affordable range. Remember that the buyer will also have to pay the lot rent, whatever that is. (Here in Northern Virginia, that can be around $600 a month.)
So, for instance, if the home cost $15,000 and you got someone to put $2,000 down, you could finance the rest for 5 years at 18% for $330 a month. If lot rent were $600 (Northern Virginia prices), then an ad on CraigsList would be something like "Great 3/2 Fleetwood doublewide can be yours for only $930 a month including lot rent. Only $1,995 moves you in..." Don't even mention the full price of $13,000.
From your perspective, you get several thousand dollars up front. The figures I gave were hypothetical, but you're getting 18% return on your equity. If the person makes all the payments, you've made a tidy profit. If they default, you evict, and begin the process again.
I'd certainly consider buying the mobile home from you (and then offering the sort of deal I just described to a potential buyer), but since you've already paid for it, you might as well offer it on terms, make some money, and profit from the experience.
And one additional thought: If you decide you really want to cash out before the 5 years is up, you can sell the note, albeit at a discount. You let it season for 6 months (to show a note buyer that the person is making the payments), then you sell the note. I don't buy notes, but a lot of investors do.
Hope that helps.
