Consider this… 

We Can Close In Days, Not Weeks

*An inspection contingency lets the buyer have time to do an inspection and back out of the sale or negotiate a new price if there are repairs that need to be done. If you can’t come to an agreement with the buyer, the buyer has the right to back out of the sale. Similarly, a financing contingency gives the buyer the wiggle room to back out of the purchase if they can’t obtain a loan or if the manufactured home doesn’t appraise for the value that the bank needs to close the loan.

Here at Lafayette Mobile Home Buyer, we don’t use bank financing so you don’t have to worry about our ability to close on a deal.
