I bought a small park recently and dealt with Excel Bank out of
southern CA. Luckily, I was able to obtain other financing. If this
name comes up as the funding lender, RUN away as fast as you can.
They pulled a huge bait and switch on me in escrow.

They promote the fact that they will do loans as low as $100K. I guess
this is true but the terms and costs are so brutal no one in their right
mind would want the money. The broker, Harry Sierota out of Phoenix,
did a fantastic job of concealing the true cost of the financing. Suffice
it to say what we got in escrow was night and day different than what
was disclosed to us upfront.

E-mail me if want the gory details. I never want to see anyone else get
burned like I almost did.

I’m looking for a lender too and I have 20% to put down on a much smaller deal, only $300,000.00. Every bank and/or mortgage company/broker/private lender I pitch my deal to says it looks great and they show every enthusiasm but then there gone. No phone call, no email, won’t answer my calls, and I don’t have a clue what the problem is.
Frustration level is over my head, I’ll probably not get this deal and never know why.

I have a small locally owned bank that will go 80% on any MHP deal worth the money. They allow 10% seller financing with me having a minimum 10% in the deal.
Often I have seen posts here where hopeful investors are trying to obtain 75-80% bank and the balance carried on a note from the seller,thus no money down. If anyone here knows how to actually pull this off let us know. I’ve tried it a couple times and even when the appraisal is cosiderably more than the purchase price,they still want me to have at least a 10% participation in every deal. Gary

If the lenders are saying the deal looks good then maybe you have focused your loan package too much on the deal (not necessarily a bad thing) and not provided the same attention to detail about yourself.

With 20% down on a good deal you have many doors that will open. The key will be in the details you provide both about yourself and your deal.

We go into this in detail during out small park boot camp in August.
