Get out into the parks and look for mh’s with hand-made signs. You can find mobile home parks in your area by going to and doing a “search by distance.” You can put in your address or desired zip code and search for “mobile home parks” within 10, 15, 25, miles of your home.

The majority of the really good deals are not found in the papers.

I highly suggest you read the book, “Deals on Wheels” by Lonnie Scruggs, if you haven’t already.

Good Luck,

I was able to obtain a complete list of mobile home parks located in my county for free by going to my county courthouse. All parks in my area are required to be registered, and that information is public knowledge. I found that there were 88 parks(!) in my relatively rural county (2 towns, 1 university, no city).

where are you located and I’ll get you the repo list from 3 or 4 lenders

Big Book is the best…but I would also add - Posted by Dirk Roach

you can Satalight pic’s of anywhere and zoom in and find parks that way too. However you’ll pretty much need to have a preexisting lay of the land, to know how to get to them etc.
Although I have only found two parks that were not listed in big book using terraserver.

Jeanne is right though, THE BEST WAY TO FIND DEALS: is to get out of the office and into the parks and simply TALK to folks. Make your presence known.
That’s how you find these deals.
my 2 cents
