Craigslist Mobile Homes You Can Afford

There have been a ton of great Craigslist mobile homes for sale lately! 

Scrolling through sites like Zillow, Redfin, and Craigslist is a hobby of mine. I love to see how other people live and decorate their homes (maybe I’m just weird?). You can get a lot of mobile home decorating inspiration and remodeling ideas just by scrolling through all the mobile homes for sale. It’s also neat to see how mobile home prices differ across the nation.

Mobile home prices and mobile home park lot rent costs go hand in hand. States with the lowest mobile home prices will usually have lower lot rent as well.  Both mobile homes and lot rent are most affordable in the South but that can always change.

Please keep in mind that we are not affiliated with Craigslist or the home sellers. We just like to share Craigslist mobile homes for sale, especially if they are beautiful or look like a good deal. We always include the original listing and a couple of pictures of the home but we will break the link once we see that the home has sold.

1972 Holly Park Mobile Home For $4,500 in Ohio

Our first find is a 1972 Holly Park single wide mobile home located in Ohio. The home appears to have its original cabinets, paneling, and built-ins. It also looks to be in very good condition for a home constructed in 1972!

Be extra careful when buying a mobile home built before 1976. That’s when the federal law took effect that required builders to meet minimum building regulations. Also, many mobile homes built before 1976 may have aluminum wiring. Always get an inspection done on any mobile home you are considering buying.

This home has a ton of potential and could make a great home for anyone. (This home has sold, sorry!).

1981 Liberty Mobile Home For $13,900

We really like this 1981 Liberty Mobile Home that’s also located in Florida. It has been completely updated. We especially love the laminate flooring, which gives the mobile home a wood floor look without the extra costs. The kitchen has plenty of cabinets and it appears from one of the pictures that they have used a dresser to create an extra cabinet and countertop space between the living room and kitchen. It matches the rest of the kitchen very well. We are big fans of thinking outside the box like this owner did! This home has been sold.

About Craigslist Mobile Homes for Sale And Buying Pre-Owned Mobile Homes

The mobile homes we’ve shared today were all posted on Craigslist. Craigslist is the best website to look for mobile homes in a park. That’s because mobile homes located in mobile home parks are sold privately, no real estate agents are required. The title is used to establish ownership.

Read all about mobile home titles here.

Buying a pre-owned mobile home (or manufactured home) without land doesn’t require a realtor but we always want buyers to hire an independent inspector and pay an attorney or title company to search for liens nationally (not just in your state).

It’s always important to be diligent when thinking of making a purchase from an online seller. Never give the seller your money if they don’t have a title in hand. And, please, make sure you hire a mobile home inspector before buying a mobile home. Be sure to take a look at our article Buying A Used Mobile Home that offers some great tips and resources.

Join almost 60,000 mobile homeowners on our Facebook Group, Mobile Home Living: Remodels and Repairs, and chat with other homeowners, see lots of beautiful mobile and manufactured homes, and get answers to all your remodeling and repair questions.

    • Hi Dixon,

      I wanted to let you know that Craigslist.com is absolutely the best place to find mobile homes for rent and sale. MHVillage.com is another great place though I think they are more for buying than renting. I’ve been seeing a lot of cool homes for rent on the Facebook marketplace (or maybe FB just knows I’m a bit mobile home mad and they show me all they have!) Best of luck!
