Lonnie’s score card - Posted by Karl (Ohio)

I must be dragging my feet. It took me three days to sell a MH since the convention. I bought a nice ?77 14X60 last week for $3k, sold it today at lunch for $5k cash, gave $100 to the PM for the referral. (I?m still working a full time job, so I have to conduct business during lunch). Another cash buyer, darn it, I can?t seem to get a promissory note created, messing up my bookkeeping. A measly 63% return, I know, but I?m new at this and am still learning. (Wait a minute, isn?t that a 3,276% annual yield?)

That same PM told me today there?s a $35k doublewide for sale in his park, the finance company that owns it will pay a 7% commission to get it sold, and he just had a buyer walk into his office who wants it. The PM ran a credit check on the guy, credits good. The problem is the PM is swamped and doesn?t have the time to put the deal together, wants to know I?d do him a favor and take it off his hands and close the deal and take the commission. Is this guy my new best friend or what? I hope he has a decent golf game, there?s a golf course down the street from his park.

I think what happened was I kissed the Godfather?s turquoise ring at the convention, and its bringing me good mobile home luck.

I told someone at the convention last Friday that I was having my first MH moved that day. They asked me if I drained the water heater. Was I supposed to? I had visions all weekend of that water heater spread across the highway. When I got home, I went and checked on the trailer. It made it in one piece, but the floor under both the water heater and the furnace was completely shot, I?m lucky I didn?t lose both units through the floor. That would have been an extremely painful lesson.

I wish I would have beat Steph to the punch and posted a closed deal earlier, but then again she has a lot more zest than I do, now doesn?t she? (That?s right, Steph, that was me whistling at you!)

You’re the man!!!

All I’ve done since the convention is buy another MH (Seller orginally wanted $9,000 but I bought for $2,200) and finally get a hold of that PM to get one sold.

I need to find 1 cash buyer in order to pay Uncle Sam. I called Kathy Amrein the other day and left a message. Hopefully she can finance one for me.

Way to go man. Still kicking people in the teeth and telling us to wake up and get out there and do deals. But I don’t believe it. It can’t be done :wink: What is that 8 or nine deals in a month and a half? NAH!
haha I bet your banker is starting to like you.
Great job my friend.
