Mobile Homes for Sale Edmonton
The best way to find mobile homes for sale, Edmonton buyers have found, is to search classified-style online listings. These small, inexpensive homes are easy to transport to your acreage if you need a roof over your head while your dream house is under construction. Or, try one of the local mobile home parks for low-cost community living.

Temporary, Inexpensive Shelter
Cost is usually the buyer’s primary concern when investigating the local mobile homes for sale. Edmonton has some parks where you can find a very inexpensive trailer, often sold directly by the owner. Another popular use for mobile homes is that of a temporary house on large tracts of property. In either case, finding the right fit is not too difficult.
Where to Look
Online sources are invaluable for finding out where around town there are mobile homes for sale. Edmonton classified sites like usededmonton.com are good, but larger national sites like Kijiji and Craigslist usually attract more volume.
Be careful when scanning the listings, however; many people also use the term “mobile home” in reference to RVs and campers. Photographs are always good for finding out instantly if you are looking at the kind of structure you have in mind.
Pros and Cons
You won’t find another kind of house priced as low as a mobile home. Used ones average under $100,000, even for an expanded, three-bedroom, two-bathroom model on a site with a backyard. If you are planning to move the home, be sure to factor in transportation costs as well.
The limited space is one drawback to life in a mobile home, requiring creativity in conserving square footage. Also, there is one major factor that requires careful thought when looking at mobile homes for sale: Edmonton sees long, bitterly cold winters every year, and the thin walls of a mobile home generally provide little defense. An investment in a powerful gas or electric heater is a must if you will be living in your mobile home during the colder months.
While there are plenty of mobile homes for sale, Edmonton newcomers should make sure they have the right one before handing over the cash. $60,000 or $70,000 is still a lot of money, and it is worth the time it takes to have someone inspect the safety and energy efficiency of the home before buying it. With this precaution, you can count on a reliable, safe shelter over your head.
