Can Double-Wide Homes Be Purchased Online?

Double-wide mobile homes can be directly purchased online at eBay.com or indirectly through MHBay.com, which lists more than 10,000 U.S. mobile homes for sale, as of 2016. Zillow.com and Craigslist.org also offer online listings of mobile homes for sale.

Mobile homes sold on eBay are generally priced between $10,000 and $60,000. Listings offer photo galleries, manufacturer information, home layout and seller information. Many homes are offered by highly reviewed and experienced sellers helping to mitigate the risks of buying online.

The major drawback of online purchase is the impossibility of physical inspection. Sellers should explain the condition of the floors, roof, plumbing and underside to make up for limited information.
