Go to the California Department of Housing and Community Development. Buy their handbook called, “Occupational Licensing Examination Study Book for Manufactured Housing, Mobilehome, Commercial Coach Dealer and salesperson License Examinations”. It costs about $11 and will give you a lot of information.
Yes, you need a license to sell even ONE mobile home, for a profit. The license costs $1,300 and is renewable at the same price every two years. To sit for the exam costs $100 (each time) and there are about $650 worth of “exam prep” courses needed to pass the exam. I believe there is also a bond that needs to be posted, but I am not certain of this, or how big a bond is necessary.
