No your right for me 2 to 3 k is the magic number. I just happened to got three cherries on the one in my above post.
I only mentioned it because I was trying to illustrate how warped the blue book is.
Also I would never have found that if I were not a physical presence in the Park.
True story, I was driving through a park with Jeanne like a week ago, and we came across this Mobile home with a really big
yard and nice big Orange tree in it.
There was a man sitting in a chair underneath it.
I pointed to the tree and home and commented to Jeanne that it was a nice set up and well taken care of.
Anyhow the next day I hear from Rose (the PM of that Park). She informs me that she just got a call from Mr. Markely (the man in the yard), and he’s worried that I’m going to buy up his mobile home and he has no place to move to. Rose reminded him that his home was not even for sale, to which he told her, yes but I’ve heard about him and if the price is right, who knows.
I had to laugh and admit to Rose what Happened, but I agree if the price was right, yes sure I’d be interested. In fact, I told her I can help the guy out , I’ll put him into a bigger, newer, nicer home, on payments which he can afford.
The long and the short of it I have a meeting Sunday with him.
Oh also on this deal, his home blue books at $2350.00. I’m sure that I can sell it for 8.5k. Again Blue books are dangerous,
and a waste of time.
