I guess what you will come to understand as you get involved with this is why exactly there ARE so many vacancies?
Once you become familiar with that and the various types of homes and price points (including what people can afford to pay you) that are typical for your area, you will be in a grand position to take advantage of all those vacancies and AT THE RIGHT PRICE.
You probably want to wait for the book like many folks suggest, I know how agonizing that can be… maybe a good thing to do maentime would be to start looking around at some of these homes and getting a solid feel for what’s around and the different parks, etc… be an sponge while you wait and absorb all that you can. Don’t make any commitments, just start getting the lay of the land.
And don’t think that you’re gonna miss out on deal after deal 'cause you’re taking the time to learn the ropes first… it sounds like you’re gonna have your pick for quite some time to come
