Mobile home – a small definition
The name mobile home already says a lot about the use and the form of housing. It is a house that is made of wood or finished elements. It can be transported after construction and thus be used mobile. Commonly, such use is mostly in the construction industry. Many mobile homes that serve recreational purposes are permanently built. They may be located on your own property or on leased land. If you are looking to sell a mobile home, the size and features, as well as the status of the land on which the mobile home sits, will determine the purchase price. The future use of the mobile home may also affect the purchase price.
Container elements for mobile use
Container elements are mainly used in construction, but also in holiday camps and school hostels as well as in campsites with simple equipment. These mobile homes are needed to provide employees who do not live nearby with an overnight accommodation option that is inexpensive. Long commutes should be avoided because of the time saved. Many construction professionals who are mobile and only home on weekends opt for this type of housing when working on a construction site. However, offices for emergency personnel coordinating construction and for security guards are also housed in mobile homes.
Containers made of ready-made elements that can be easily transported and set up are often used. These can be heated and have modern sanitary facilities. Sometimes the containers can also be arranged on top of each other on several floors. This saves space and allows several containers to be heated together, as well as a common connection for the sanitary facilities.
Due to their flexibility, these containers are also often used as holiday homes. Especially in holiday camps and at the edge of campsites this mobile form of housing is very popular.
Motorhomes for road transport
Mobile homes can have their own chassis. However, they cannot be compared to caravans or mobile homes used for camping holidays. Mobile homes usually weigh several tons and can only be moved with a truck or a large towing vehicle. It is not uncommon for them to be over-wide. They are not suitable for regular travelling. However, they have the advantage that they are relatively easy to move to another location after a sale.
If you want to sell such a transportable mobile home, the price is usually defined only by the value of the mobile home. The buyer can place it on his land. The use is mainly on campsites and garden colonies, but also in holiday resorts. The furnishings can be upscale with several living rooms, a bathroom and a kitchen, so these mobile homes can sometimes fetch very good prices when sold.
Mobile homes made of wood – the top class
Wooden mobile homes are very popular. They come in many different sizes and the features vary depending on the use. The mobile homes are appealing in appearance and can be used in a variety of ways. Many buyers are looking for a property like this for the weekends. Properties that are close to the house or apartment, so there is no need to travel long distances, are in high demand. Alternatively, there are buyers who deliberately choose a property in a scenic location and are willing to take a longer drive to get there. You can expect to pay an attractive price for such a mobile home if it has a kitchen and bathroom. Several rooms, if small, are also considered attractive.
Mobile homes with several floors have been developed for small footprints. Many buyers find it attractive if a sleeping area can be set up under the roof. The variants are so versatile that an individual description in the exposé is very important. In combination with the pictures, the prospective buyer gets a comprehensive impression of the mobile home and its possible uses.
