Potential savings. While this differs from one repossessed mobile home to another, the average savings are about 30 percent when compared to mobile homes of similar condition. This might be reduced if you use financing options since you’ll have to pay the interest on that loan, but most people see significant savings when they buy a repossessed unit as opposed to a similar used model. At the same time, be sure to check the condition of the mobile home before buying it since most are purchased as-is and you’re responsible for repairing and maintaining the mobile home after purchasing it.
