Some folks may disagree with me on this posting site,but my recommendation is that your first Lonnie Deal NOT be a mover. There are allot more hoops to jump through in order to successfully move a home. Some are:
- Building Permit (does this require you to upgrade the home to current standards?) watch the electric hook-ups!
- Finding a park that accepts a MH this old.
- Finding a reasonable mover to move home and set it up.
- Buying steps/skirting/block for home.
The reason why I recommend not doing this for the first deal is that there are too many deals out there that do not have to be moved that it would be better to practice on one of those first before moving a home. I dont want to see you get frustrated and quit the business before you start. Once you have a few under your belt, then IF you find a good deal to move, then move it.
