The reason is mobile homes are considered personal property - not real estate. Real estate agents don't make much money with mobile homes and for what it's worth, they will put you at the bottom of their priorities. In other words, you need to sell it yourself.

Hi Anna,
The biggest tax is up to 1.78% Excise tax that becomes due upon sale. This is based on the selling price and is non-negotiable. As a seller you'll also pay for half of the escrow costs, a Title Insurance Policy and some other smaller fees.

Keeping the house ready to show with 4 children would be extremely stressful for you and the children. Moving in with your parents sounds like a great idea! You are fortunate to have that choice available to you. Ask your realtor to look at the home and tell you which items should stay to stage the house. You might even consider a professional stager. This will cost you a few hundred and up but homes that are professionally staged sell quicker for a higher price. ... more
