Selling Your Park Model by "Doing IYourself" (DIY)

First Published in Dec 2022, revised in Jan 2024  by Al Bartsch  

This is a VERY SIMPLE process.  Here are the main steps that should be helpful to both the Seller and the Buyer:

Step 1:  Get Permission from Fiesta Grande office to sell your park model (fill out a form).  Wait for approval signed by management. 

Step 2:  Install a "For Sale" sign.  Free online advertising is available on this website (to see the SALES Spreadsheet click on menu item "Park Model SALES").  This website also handles Rentals (see below).

Step 3:  Call Al Bartsch 520-840-0262 and ask him to post your advertisement free of charge with your name and contact information on Al's website (albartsch.com).  Then make appointments with prospective buyers who want to see your property.Post your own name and contact information online, and make appointments with prospective buyers to show your property.  Buyers love to meet the owners and have ALL their questions answered directly by the owner. 

Step 4:  When a buyer is found, negotiate a Purchase Price with or without Earnest Money (deposit), and an approximate Title Transfer Date, which is date when the balance of the purchase price is due.  Fiesta Grande prefers Title Transfer Dates to be the 1st of any month.  

Step 5:  Buyer applies for residency (get an application and instructions from Fiesta Grande office and pay a fee); this application is also known as a "Criminal Background Check".  No monies should be exchanged until the background check has been completed.

Step 6:  After passing the Background Check, seller and buyer determine a firm Title Transfer Date.

Step 7:  If the buyer desires a home inspection by a professional inspector, licensed by the State of Arizona, there is local inspector living in Arizona City who is familiar with park models in Fiesta Grande: SRM Home Inspections LLC, Scott Moore 520-392-4559.

Step 8:  Buyer obtains liability insurance effective on the Title Transfer Date as required by Fiesta Grande.  I would suggest the following local insurance agency: Gephardt Insurance Group, 719 E Cottonwood Lane, Casa Grande (near Safeway Supermarket, Sarabeth Burcham 520-836-3244 Ext 1203.   

Step 9:  Transfer of ownership is handled by: 1-2-3 Motor Vehicle Services, 1609 E Florence Blvd, Casa Grande (just east of Fiesta Grande), 520-509-1618, M-F 9-6, Sat 9-4, fee is $50.  Seller signs the original Certificate of Title for the park model and simultaneously accepts full payment by Cashiers Check.  Buyer pays the transfer fee and is furnished with a receipt which serves as a "temporary title".

Step 10:  The receipt must be submitted to Fiesta Grande Office on the Title Transfer Date.  The date on the receipt determines the Check-In date when the 12-months lot rent is due.  Proof of liability insurance is required at the same time, or soon thereafter.

Step 11:  Buyer calls Arizona Public Service (APS) 800-253-9405 to transfer the electric power account from seller's name into buyer's name effective on the Title Transfer Date, or any other date that's acceptable by seller and buyer.

Step 12:  Seller checks with Fiesta Grande Office to confirm the correct Mailing Address for refund of unexpired portion of the prepaid lot rent.

Each of the above steps entails additional details that the seller and buyer should be aware of.  One such detail may be the need for a Power of Attorney (PoA) to give legal representation to either the seller or buyer if either of them plan to be out of town during the transfer of ownership.  Some sales may require a detailed Sale Agreement, especially if PoA's are required, or if Earnest Money is justified, or if the seller wants to continue occupying the property after the Title Transfer Date by Renting it back from the buyer..    

Any help and counseling with the above details is available by contacting Al Bartsch, 520-840-0262 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

Finally, the following question is asked most often:  "When is the best time of year to sell my park model?"  Undoubtedly, the best time to sell is the winter season (November thru mid April) while the owner is occupying the home and showing it to interested parties.
