When The Buyer Backs Out: Real Estate Sales Solutions

The first time I sold a house, I had no idea that the buyer could back out of the contract partway through. I was taken aback when it happened to me, and my real estate agent had to explain the process of terminating the contract and requesting the earnest deposit. After the contract was terminated, I spent a lot of time researching why a buyer could back out of a sale, what I could do about it as the seller, and ways to minimize the risk of it happening. I created this site to share what I've learned in the hopes of preventing other homeowners from experiencing what I did. I hope it helps you to be better prepared as you sell your home.

3 Things You Need To Know About Caring For Your Manufactured Home

Mobile homes are a great way to become a homeowner. There are many people who want to own property but are either unable to buy a single family home or simply don't want the care and maintenance that comes with property. In this case, a manufactured home could be a great investment to buy. If you choose to purchase a mobile home, it is incredibly important that you know how to care for it. Here are some things that you should know.

1. Care For The Roof

Many mobile homes have flat roofs. This can be more affordable, but it can create some problems when it comes to weather. For instance, if you live in a place with a lot of snow, it can cause the snow to pool on the top since there is no way for the snow to slope off. For this reason, you should make sure that you are using a ladder to get up to the roof, or a broom during the winter to help move the snow around.

Additionally, it is important that during the summer you put a special sealant on the roof to keep it waterproof. This sealant can be bought at most home maintenance stores.

2. Check for Proper Ventilation

Ventilation is very important for a mobile home, probably even more important than if you have a single family home. This is because a manufactured home is made from different materials, and the plumbing, heating, and cooling works differently. If you are unclear if your home is ventilating properly, you should have an inspector come and check for air flow. Until you are clear that the home is safe, you should avoid lighting gas fires, starting up the heater, or doing anything else that requires gas. It could be dangerous to everyone in the home.

3. Make Sure The Home Is Level

Lastly, it is important to make sure that the home is level. This should be done before you place the home, but it is important to know that the ground can shift. Over time, you will need to continue to check the placement of the home. If there has been a lot of rain or settling of the property, it can cause the home to shift. This will affect the plumbing, the ventilation, and so much more. Once again, an inspector can help you to determine if it is level.

By understanding these things, you can be confident of the safety of your manufactured home.
