Average sales time in the suburbs is around 6 months, although areas vary. So August is not that long ago. It seems like forever when you are trying to sell, I know. But activity at this point is more important to look at. Talk to your agent about the sales in your area and compare with your price. If you are not getting any activity on showings, you need to review your price. If you are, listen to the feedback and adjust accordingly.

Foreclosures are below market a lot and if you upgraded it, should be easier to sell to those who want a move-in ready home. But price is still king and again, can't expect a lot of appreciation in a still low market. However, many buyers want a move-in ready home and lending on a property that is not move in ready can be difficult. So, that gives you a leg up.

Remember and keep in mind that what you want now to buy will be at a low price too and factor that into your price thinking.

It really depends on the overall condition of the home, recent updates and location Gutierrez. Its hard to pin point an average price per sq feet when it really does vary. If you have a property in mind, I would be happy to walk through the home and give you my professional opinion of what the home is worth. ... more

Hi Karen,
That is a question that really can't be answered as we just don't know, especially in this ever changing market. We would need to see what has sold, what's for sale, etc. to have a more accurate idea of how things are selling in that area for a mobile home. I would be more than happy to do a market analysis for you and we can see where you stand. Please feel free to contact me. Patty Romero, 708-277-7620. ... more
