Buying first used home

Post by Mike S 77 » Tue Sep 12, 2017 3:50 pm

I am getting ready to make an offer on a used mobile home. Its a 1994( 18×76) 3 bdrm 2 bath home made by oak creek. Its in fairly good visual shape.

After having it inspected, it was revealed that it has polybutelene pipes, a roof that needs redone, a bad swamp cooler & furnace. It also needs a hand full of other things fixed. The owners listed it at $32,500.

My question as a first time buyer with no buying expierence is making an intitial offer. Would $25,000 be a good starting point considering the expensive problems the inspection showed? Any input would be greatly appreciated.
