It seems on the surface that you would be correct in your thoughts about the MH dealer ads you are seeing in your paper. I can assure you that Dirk is correct when he tells you they concentrate on the newer “high dollar” homes. They run those ads to merely generate floor traffic into their showrooms and the more traffic they get, the better percentage they have of landing someone with good credit. You can rest assured that if that potential customer has good credit that they won’t let him out of there without purchasing a new one–he can forget about that 83 Clayton they took in trade–they want the big bucks!
I never knew this market was so wide open until I ran a test ad to see what the market was on this “older” home financing. The results blew me away!! I received 91 calls in five days off that first test ad and been scrambling ever since to “fill the orders” for people looking for these type homes!
Dont worry, if you have the home and it’s bought within your market and you offer the financing. You
