We’ve never had luck with Free on ads = zero calls. Make it $200 or $300 and you are in the chips. We have gotten rid of 4 blower-uppers already this year - I just photographed 3 more yesterday, listed one on Facebook and have had 80-100 inquiries (that’s the danger) and a serious buyer going over this morning to get in.
These ads work! Is it faster to get rid of a home with a dumpster and $1500? sometimes. Sometimes these ads will make a house go away in a week or less - and with a little ‘KY bourbon’ money in your pocket.
I hope this helps someone as much as it has helped us.
IMO there are 3 levels of ‘these’ homes:
Level 3 this house needs a dumpster (and I don’t want to pay for it) - it just needs to be pulled off the property (these sell the quickest). $200-$300
Level 2 this house just needs a new home - someone with a strong back and lower expectations. $500-$800
Level 1 that needs 5-10k and I want to keep it in my park - if someone else paid for the repairs. $4000-$6000
Level 3 = Blower-upper, this is the ad:
Title: $200 / 2br Mobile home trailer for sale - Must be moved
Ad: I have an older mobile home that must be moved this week - new home coming in. It needs work, and it is NOT livable - perfect for a hunting cabin, farm, deer camp, lake, etc.
It must be gone - new house being delivered - that why it’s this price. No, it’s not fancy, but it’s a house for that kind of money.
No, I don’t have any more pics. No, you can’t fix it and leave it here. Yes, it must be moved out. Sorry.
First person with the cash and toter to move it gets it. I get 100 calls a day, please text only 859-319-5000
Level 2 = heavy fixer, this is the ad:
Title: Mobile Home trailer for sale must be moved. Perfect for hunting, farm
Ad: I am the manager of a mobile home park - we have a brand new home coming in on this lot - and it needs gone.
With some elbow grease, this is a decent home - but must be moved - that’s why the price.
No, it’s not fancy, but it is a house or even storage — for that kind of money…
The first person with $800 cash and their toter ready gets it. I get 100 calls a day - please text only 859-319-5000.
You can see it at 2319 Greensburg Rd #48 Campbellsville, KY 42718
