Special Features of Your Home
Amenities that may add value to your house include patios, decks, hot tubs, enclosed porches, upgraded kitchens and bathrooms, skylights, weatherproofing, energy-efficient appliances, and solar panels.
If you decide to add a feature, make sure it complies with the HUD requirements for manufactured homes. If your addition is out of compliance, it will hurt, not help, your property’s value. Your trailer must be HUD-code compliant for buyers to get standard financing.
Ways to Calculate Mobile Home Values
There are a few different ways to put a solid number to the value of your home. You can pay for an appraisal online or get an in-person assessment done by a professional appraiser.
One resource for an online appraisal is the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA), which issues pricing for vehicles, RVs, and manufactured homes. There are also free guides and worth estimators online that can help you ascertain the ballpark value of your used trailer house.
For an in-person appraisal, contact a local real estate agent with expertise in manufactured homes.
