Not sure you need anything else, unless it's something required by your locality. Selling a mobile home is closer to the process to sell a car than to sell real estate (assuming there's no land attached).

However, I don't understand the appraisal. If you'd wanted one, it should have been done before you marketed the property; if you have a buyer, you've probably already advertised/quoted a price. What if it appraises for more; are you going to tell him: "Sorry, but now I want more money"?

Also, mobile homes don't appreciate, certainly not like real estate. In fact, like cars, they depreciate. So, generally, a mobile home seller is pleased to sell the home for what he/she paid. I know plenty of mobile home owners who would be delighted to sell for what they paid for. You might use this as a gauge in your pricing. And, of course, if you're in a mobile home park, look at what similar homes are selling for.

Consider any local regulations about tenant rights, and talk with our insurance agent before you sign anything. Best of luck! ... more
