What is the mobile home worth on a trailer lot?

What is the lot worth empty?

Add the 2 together. Does it come to more or less than $50k? You have your answer.
Be aware doublewides go down in value and after a time become almost worthless.

That depends in part on the age of the home. The more modern ones are really very, very nice. They're also built to higher standards. Older ones tend not to be as nice.

You're dealing with two different issues here. One is the value of the home itself. The other is the value of the land. How much does 1 acre of land sell for in the area? To that, you'd add the value of the home--which could be anywhere from $15,000 to $75,000 depending on age and condition.

Keep in mind, too, that it's not just price, but the terms that can make a deal desirable. What sort of financing, if any, is the owner offering you? Again, it varies geographically, but if the deal was something like 10% down with the remainder payable over 20 years at 6%, that'd be pretty good. But if you have to go out and find your own financing, or if the owner is asking for all cash, or offering a deal like 20% down, 12% interest, that would be far less desirable.

So: Break down the value of the home and the land. Then consider whether the financing (if any) is attractive.

Hope that helps.

The 2008 mean price of mobile homes in Colquitt County was $35,054, Katrina. I would estimate that the size of the land for those homes averages between .5 to 1 acre. Mobile homes tend to depreciate in value whereas stick built ones (used to) usually appreciate. So given this information, what do you think? Please feel free to email or call if I can be of further assistance.

Good Luck!
