Mobile homes typically need to be "attached" to land in order to qualify as a "real estate" and be sold by a Realtor in the local MLS. Would your mobile home be sold with land?

The first thing I would recommend talking to your agent about doing a new CMA. If it is priced correctly your should have several people looking at your house if not might be priced too high. If you have alot of people coming and looking and not making offers there is something at the home that is turning them off on it.
Although you cant always fix every thing that turns people off it's good to explore options and be prepared for there objections.

I assume your are talking about the IRS rule that allows owners of homes that were used as their primary residence in at least 2 out of the last 5 years to be exempt from capital gains tax?
It is not possible to know if you qualify, you need to speak with a qualified tax professional. It depends first on how long you have owned the home (sounds like 1 month), whether you lived there as a primary residence, how you took possession of the home, what YOUR tax basis is (it may be zero) and other factors. Even if you do not qualify for this exemption, there may or may not be ANY tax owed. With the IRS there are always exceptions to the rule.

If you have your home listed through a licensed Realtor then your listing should appear on Trulia within 72 hours after going live in the MLS system... more
