Least Expensive Home Reported Sold
The least expensive home reported sold this week in Anderson County was a 1080 SF 3 bedroom 2 bath mobile home on 0.72 acres in Anderson. It sold for $37,000 CASH after being on the market for 24 days. Originally listed at $39,990.
Not a foreclosure. Brick underpinned but MLS does NOT say if it is FHA approved foundation.
Just yesterday I had someone email me about a super cheap mobile home. Sadly they had NOT spoken to a mortgage lender and are operating under the assumption that they will be able to get a mortgage for a super cheap mobile home.
The truth is that most super cheap mobile homes sell for CASH. This is because the banks are NOT willing to give buyers a mortgage for such a small amount OR the mobile home will not qualify for a mortgage.
If you are serious about buying a home, you MUST speak to a lender FIRST.
I know this might sound rude but there is a very good reason why this is for YOUR benefit!
The financing of your home is often the biggest bottleneck to the entire home buying process. You need to know exactly where you stand on the financing front before you set foot on any seller’s property.
Let’s not waste anyone’s time, effort, or money with a wild goose chase. If your maximum price is $100,000, there’s absolutely no reason for you to be looking at a $200,000 home.
Moreover, let me make this perfectly clear — you don’t have to talk to a specific lender, but you must talk to a lender. Just remember that it’s entirely your choice which lender you use!
If you are able to purchase your next home with cash, I must congratulate you for being in such a great financial place. However, you need to understand that you must submit your proof of funds (POF) with your offer for sellers to take you seriously. That can be a recent bank statement (or 401K, etc.) that shows at least the offer amount as its balance.
A Pre-Qualification or Pre-Approval Letter or POF needs to accompany ALL offers. If you do not have either of these super important documents, then you need to stop looking at homes and get your ducks in a row.
First things first after all!
I know this sounds harsh. Or maybe even rude.
But it is the freaking truth.
