Terminology Tuesday - Painting a Mobile Home

(Note: I think it's important to know the terminology and words used when learning any new business including mobile home investing. I came up with 'Terminology Tuesday' as a way to go over the terminology used in the mobile home business. It's important to know the terminology when talking to people in the business so you're all on the same page).

This is a quick video on painting a mobile home (exterior). When painting a mobile home, it's best to first make sure the home is clean from all dirt and debris - pressure washing is a good method to use.

If the outside of a mobile home looks a bit worn out and the paint is fading, you may want to look into the possibility of painting it to gain better curb side appeal. I've seen many mobile homes that have looked a bit faded and worn out, but after a good paint job have looked in tip top shape.

Personally, I've never had to paint a mobile home. Most of the homes I buy already have curbside appeal. Though, there have been some that have required some light touchup work on the outside. All in all, curbside appeal is very important. If the exterior does not look good, most folks will pass on through and not even bother to look at the interior.
