Ads & Park on the rise? - Posted by Java(OH)

First off, does anyone usually get calls on their first ad-Sunday newspaper. I only received one call and they didn’t come to see it. No price stated, just typical Lonnie ad.
Also, I met a PM who just recently started at a park(hubby/wife have lived there for 8 yrs)that has a bad rep for drugs, but since last year when the drug task force was brought back and the new PM cleaning house, the park appears to be on the rise. The PM has been throwing my name around and is being very motivated(I think she wants the $100) as well as clean up the park. The only problem, besides the back rep, is that the homes are is “need repair” shape. I can get two/three at very good prices, but don’t have time or workers to fix-up. Do you have any suggestions and how much harder is it to sell “as-is”. The park is an older park and the average home is around $8,000, with a few $10,000-$15,000 homes woven in. The homes that I have an opportunity to buy, are obtainable for $1,000-$2,000 each. Any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
