It is not that hard to sell a mobile home park without a broker, as long as you are willing to answer the phone, and provide the information that buyers want in a timely manner.
Getting your phone to ring off the hook with buyers is not hard right now. You can list your park on Mobilehomeparkstore.com and Loopnet.com and you will start getting calls immediately.
What you need a broker for, in some cases, is what you do once the phone starts ringing. If you are not going to answer promptly, return calls, put together sales packages and mail them out quickly, show up at the property over and over and walk the buyer around, then you need to admit that you’re not really a “sell it yourself” kind of person and hire a competent broker. In addition. good brokers normally have potential buyers already in their stable, so they can also increase your odds of finding a buyer as well as processing them.
