Don’t know your market, & details lacking, but sounds like a lot to pay for a depreciated (used) MH & the right to pay high land rent for a limited amount of time.

Sounds like a RV park, which of course, would make the home a RV Park Model.

Is there a motivated seller who is selling cheaply? $45,000 for the summer is not cheap around here. How about in that park? Do 20 yo homes go for $90k?

What is the purpose of your purchase? I don’t see your buyer bringing you 2x this amount in hours or days. Do you have a motivated buyer?? What return do you forsee expressed in percentages, or dollars.

Where is the cash flow, at all? It seems to me that you want judgement on a personal property purchase. That is a different issue entirely. I suppose it is certainly worth having to many people. Is it a good deal to you?
