The value depends on the size and it can range from 437,000 to $75,000.the value decreases for used mobile homes for every 5 years at a rate of $5,000.the value does not appreciate and the value also depends on the facilities available.

baby.ruth: I think you meant $37,000 not $437,000. Yes they do depreciate in value to the "County Tax Assessor Office". They do will and do sell over the assessment quote value but, there is no way anyone will ever get $437,000 for a 1982 14 X 70 mobile home. That is totally preposterous!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have dealt in mobile homes for years and every mobile home dealer will gladly tell you that is preposterous!!!!!!! If that were true everyone would be in the business. You only need to buy one at $7,000 to $8,000 dollars and sell it for $437,000 and retire!
The site you listed say's, The average sales price nationwide for a (new) manufactured home in 2007 ranged from $37,100 for a single-wide and $73,600 for a double-wide (not including land), according to an annual report by the Census Bureau and the Department of Housing and Urban Development. Regionally, the lowest average price was $35,900 for a new single-wide in the Midwest and $83,800 for a new double-wide in the West. So why would anyone give $437,000 for any used one.
