Find the park manager FIRST!
Your first scenario is NOT a Lonnie scenario. You are entering the snake’s den when you try and compete with park managers who are also lonnie investors and landords. Move onto greener pasture.
Find the park manager who is just that, a park manager. Most don’t have the desire to buy and sell mobile homes. They are busy enough running the park, collecting rents and paying bills. Find a park manager that is either willing to work with you, or better yet…NEEDS you! They are out there but for some reason they are rarely the firt park we drive into.
Keep searching for this golden goose my friend, they are out there. This goose will lead you to the deals if you treat her right.
