I disagree with you on this post. I think he was asking the right question about how to find the owners name so he can bypass the manager. Personally I think he is the one taking the rifle approach because he is working hard and will uncover deals that never will even make it to a website or newspaper. I have been in land development for 12 years and the LAST place I would ever look for land or a mobile home would be in the paper or on a website like the ones you mentioned. This is the place you go to sell after you do your deal and you are trying to sell them at a profit. Nothing beats cold calling on the telephone for land or MH deals. Its work, but these are the people that will uncover the best deals and make the most money
Bill: You may want to try sending a letter to the address of the mobile home park. On the letter, put OWNER & PERSONAL & CONFIDENTIAL. Maybe the manager will save this for the owner or send it to him. The key is to make it look official so the manager will be scared to open it. Also put “Time Sensitive Material” stamped on it somewhere.
