First, some basic info about owning mobile homes in FL. In Florida, a mobile home is a motor vehicle and requires a certificate of title as proof of ownership just as your car or truck does. There is a separate title document for each section of your mobile home (there is one title document for a single-wide mobile home, and two title documents for a double-wide). If your mobile home has been paid for in full, you will receive the title(s) from Tallahassee.

If you own the land on which your mobile home is located and the home is permanently affixed to the land, it is considered "real property" and property taxes are paid each year as set by the county property appraiser's office. If you rent the land on which your home is located, or if your home is not permanently affixed to your land, you must purchase and display a decal each year for each section of your mobile home.

If you purchase a new mobile home, the dealer must be licensed with the Division of Motor Vehicles, Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. Used mobile homes on rented lots may be sold by licensed dealers or the owner may sell his own mobile home just as with site built homes. If the mobile home is permanently affixed to land you own, then it can be sold through a FL licensed real estate agent.

On a used mobile home on a rented lot, the selling dealer is responsible for fulfilling the terms specified in the contract. The title should show the correct model year of the mobile home. If the home is purchased from a dealer, the dealer must apply for title in your behalf. If no dealer is involved, follow the same procedure as you would to transfer any other motor vehicle title.

Your county tax collector's office will be able to answer any questions you might have concerning the title transfer once you find a buyer.

Hi Silvia,

That's a great question! It used to be obvious when a Realtor "farmed" an area and other realtors would not want to attempt to step on their turf. Today, many realtors work the same area and realtors work many areas! If you are in need of a realtor to sell your home, my recommendation would be to interview a few and see how much they know of the area, the market, and importantly, how they will market your home and give it the right exposure bring in the right buyer. I offer a guarantee and a marketing plan that covers several points for reaching the right buyer and the right realtor representing that buyer!! Other factors to consider are the Listing Agents' availability, knowledge, skills, marketing tools, experience and if the personality is a good fit. Feel free to contact me if I can be of any help. Thank you!! Cyndy Wald 954-624-5070. I MOVE - TO GET YOU MOVED!! ... more

Here is some information that might be helpful to you.


Short sales are just about seems like you can't get away from them. Many sellers, loan officers and Realtors say they know a lot about short sales, but don't know how the short sale process works or even why a short sale is a better alternative to a foreclosure.

A short sale will enable the seller to purchase a home about 2 years after a short sale completion while a foreclosure will make you wait 5 years. In addition, short sales are better for the lender and it will keep the house occupied, with water and electricity still on and also keep the lawn mowed. Plus the bank will lose less money through a short sale.

No Foreclosure - foreclosures can be a hard and stressful process for a family.

Being Proactive - facing a foreclosure head on will help give you some control over the process.

Start Newer, Faster - minimizing damage to your credit can help you and your family get back on your feet faster.

May not owe anything after the short sale - you can try asking the bank to cancel your debt altogether. It does happen, but not all the time. Primary residences are usually treated more favorably by the lenders.

There is still damage to your credit - when a short sale is done, it is still documented on your credit but won't have the same impact as a foreclosure for most creditors.

Tax Consequences - there may be tax consequences if the bank forgives the debit and will issue a 1099 to the IRS for the amount of debt forgiven.

Bank could demand payment for their loss - the bank doesn't have to forgive the debt. They are able to ask you to pay them back for the difference on the sale and what is owed, but you will need to agree to this.

There are no guarantees in a short sale - whether the bank will approve the sale or forgive your debt, but short sales offer a better alternative to minimize the downside of facing a foreclosure.

Disclaimer -There can be legal and tax consequences. You may want to consult with an attorney or tax specialist before attempting a short sale. A real estate agent cannot give you legal or tax advice.

DO YOU QUALIFY? - Can you answer Yes to all 4 Questions?

1. The Homes' Market Value Has Dropped. Hard comparable sales must substantiate that the home is worth less than the unpaid balance.

2. The mortgage is in or near default status.

3. The seller has fallen on hard times. The seller must submit a letter of hardship that explains why the seller cannot pay the difference due upon sale, including why the seller has or will stop making the payments.

4. The seller has no assets. The lender will want to see a financial statement and recent tax returns.


1. The lender will want to see your entire financial picture.

2. The bank may want you to sign a promissory note for the deficiency between the amount owed and the amount your home is sold for.

3. As the seller, you cannot receive any proceeds from the sale. None. Period. Your Realtor and title company may have to work for reduced fees.

4. The banks are overwhelmed with short sales and many times a decision can take up to 60 days or longer.

5. The property may be foreclosed on during the short sale process. Be sure to use an experienced short sale company who should be able to get the foreclosure postponed.

6. Do not expect to receive information on a regular basis, as there may be weeks that go by without news from your lender.

7. The bank will want to get a BPO (Broker Price Opinion) and/or an appraisal of your house.

8. Be patient. This is the best policy. Try to avoid being stressed out over something that you are not able to control.
