with a pre-HUD code home, we would not do this deal. I can replace that (I am guessing) 12’ wide with a late 90s 16x80 for 6 or 7 + 4 to move and set up = 10-12k.
your economics are the same - 9k (which is IMHO outrageous for an aluminum wired, possible 2x2 wall) for 350 or an 1800 for 600 = same ROI, so why not go for the better looking, better tenant home?
When I get these bombers - I put an ad out that says this - ad below. So instead of me PAYING to dismantle them, I get paid and it magically disappears. This one (you’ll see the video) is not too bad - I’ve had worse - and still get the $500.
Now by law here, these pre HUD homes, once moved, can’t be hooked up to electric - I tell people this up front - and they still buy them. ??? It IS Kentucky.
this was our last ad - I bet I had 100 calls and it was gone in 4 days:

I have an old trailer that needs to be moved. Can be rented out - perfect for a farm or hunting/lake use.
It has to be moved - I have a new home coming in that spot.
There’s a video of it here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KdHIwCyAEqg
Call me for more info 859-319-5000 It’s in Campbellsville and we have toters we can recommend - or take it out with a diesel truck.
We’ve always rented it for $200 each side = $400/mo income. It ain’t fancy, but it’s cheap.
