Mobile home titled in my name only

The house is titled (mobile home with no land) in only my name. I was given an offer on my house to sell. I am married; can I sell my house without having to “split” the selling price with him?

Yes, you can sell the mobile home.

If the mobile home is marital property (bought during the marriage with marital funds), then the funds received from the sale are subject to being divided 50/50.

If the mobile home is your separate property (acquired before the date of marriage for example), then the funds received from the sale are yours and not subject to being divided 50/50 as long as the proceeds are not comingled with marital funds to the point they are untraceable.
