Are you thinking of selling your mobile home but need a mobile home inspection? Or are you thinking of purchasing a manufactured home but don’t know what you need to inspect? Then here are some of our tips for a mobile home inspection that you can keep in your mobile home buying and selling arsenal.
What is a Mobile Home Inspection?
A manufactured home inspection will look at the manufactured home from the ground up. This inspection looks at very specific areas, like the plumbing, roof, electricity and HVAC system, as well as the flooring in order to make sure it is not wobbly. An inspection is usually run by a licensed inspector for manufactured homes.
When You Decide to Look at Your Home to Prepare for an Inspection
If you want to ensure your home is in good shape before, there are a few things that you want to check.
- 1) Check home alignment with the different sections of your home
- 2) Check for soft spots on the flooring near areas that see water, like toilets, and showers
- 3) Check the roof to make sure that it isn’t sagging
What to Look for When Purchasing a Home
What was suggested above can also help you when purchasing a home too. You want to make sure that the AC unit is working properly, and you may want the unit itself to be inspected to ensure that.
You also will want to check the flooring. This is a little trade-secret, as the flooring near the shower, kitchen, and toilets will be the place that could show signs of sagging due to moisture.
