    Here are some tips for finding a mobile home, along with steps that you can take to remain safe, which are based on the regulations that have been set by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):

    How to Safely View Mobile Homes

    Searching for a mobile home is typically quite simple and very straightforward.

    In normal times, you would simply search for listings that you want to view, then contact the owner of the land or property and set up a time to meet them to see the mobile homes that you are interested in. Find out what is the best website to find a mobile home here.

    However, things have changed a bit, and there are some safety measures that you can take to stay healthy.

    1.  Limit the Number of Viewings

    The first thing that you should do is to make sure that you research each of the manufactured homes carefully. If it’s a 3-bedroom home you desire, limit your research to only 3-bedroom manufactured homes.

    Many brokers and mobile home dealers are now offering 3D mobile home tours of their properties. These tours will allow you to walk through the property by the use of your phone or computer, without having to step inside the mobile home.

    If there is not a mobile home virtual tour available, you usually will have the ability to look over pictures of the mobile home in order to obtain a good idea of whether or not you might be interested in purchasing or renting a particular mobile home.

    2. Set up an Appointment

    After you have made a decision on which manufactured homes that you want to look at, you will want to make an appointment with a realtor or mobile home park manager.

    You should choose a single realtor to show you all of the available properties, as this will limit the amount of contact that you have with people outside of your home.

    3.  Use Precautions

    According to the CDC, coronavirus spreads mainly through respiratory droplets or when you are in close contact with someone who has the illness, and you have not adequately washed your hands.

    Here are some steps that you should take when you are viewing manufactured homes with your realtor or mobile home park manager:

    • Wash your hands as often as possible during your manufactured homes search. Make sure that you are washing for a minimum of 20 seconds, using soap and water. If you do not have access to soap and water, bring along a bottle of hand sanitizer to use. In order for the hand sanitizer to be effective, it must contain 60% alcohol.
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, mouth, and face while you are viewing manufactured homes.

    • Avoid coming in close contact with the person who is showing you the mobile homes. This can be difficult when you are in a small space, but try to keep your distance during the tours as much as you possibly can.
    • When you return home, make sure that you wash your hands thoroughly again. It is also a good idea to remove your clothing and place it in the washing machine as soon as possible.

    4. Be Smart

    When it comes down to it, if you take these precautions, you are going to lower your risks of becoming ill while you are viewing mobile homes for sale.

    It is also important to note that if you are feeling unwell at all, you should not be going out to view mobile homes under any circumstance. Stay home if you are under the weather, as this can help keep others from getting sick.

    Final Thoughts
