Hello All,(This is a long one-sorry)
I had talked to this lady about 2 months ago, she had for sale 3/2-1983-14x65 Manor, small porch front and back and fenced yard. It’s in a park it’s really 3 mobiles on 2 acres. She wanted $7,500, she told me that the mobile could stay in the park. I didn’t look at it at that time, told her I couldn’t give her that much but to keep my number. She called today and asked me if I would please look at it (she’s going to school in another city in Aug.). Hubby and I looked at it, no weak floors, CA& H, a little rough on the outside has a tin roof, no signs of leaking, refrig, stove and diswasher stays with it. Some alterations have been done with the other two bedrooms, a wall has been moved for what reason we can’t tell, but it took out the closets. So the two bedrooms have no closets. She’s now asking $5,800.00 her dad told her how much (she’s a single mother-parents help her out)
Now my real question:
The woman that has the park called me right after this girl did two months ago telling me she was buying the park and would be going up on lot space (lot space $100 a month now) but she wanted to sell me the two acres with a 1992 mobile on it with three spaces. She wanted-- now get this $65K!!!In my area that price is WAY too high (probably worth $15K for everything). I told her no thanks. Well I find out later she has owned this park for at least a year??? Came by my house a week ago with hand written ad for the property with $65K firm on it? I’d already told her no. I don’t want to move another mobile (learned my lesson on the first one) I’m worried about buying this mobile and then this women tells me I have to move it. Any words of wisdom or am I at her mercy because it’s her park. She has NO rules
or regs for these spaces.
Thanks to all, I hope that you all can understand my rambles
