These type books are only good when talking with a lender or prospective purchaser. The only way to find out value is by doing your homework; visit dealers and get the ‘tour’ of used homes; go to all the parks and look at anything that is ‘for sale’ regardless of condition; use the classified ads for your education by actually going to some of the mh’s listed and talk with the seller. find out why they are selling, problems with the home, neighborhood, etc etc.
This is a great business! The only way to learn about it is to hit the streets and arm yourself with the knowledge of your market… not some book written in another world.
Good Luck! David S
