Scott told me you are doing very well in NC. Congratulations!!

Personally, I love taking a property that is run down and bringing it back to its original glory. I enjnoy paying people that need the money to do the work. They are happy and I’m happy. As I tell my handy man, “When I say we, I really mean you”. He is happy doing what he is very good at, and I’m happy looking at deals. Currently, I am looking at two gutted houses on land, three land lots, one landlocked land lot, and an out of state land home deal. It is a great feeling when you see the opportunity in a piece of property. However, you do have to kiss a lot of frogs, as they say.

Well, keep up the great work and see you at the next conference, I believe in October.

Best investing, Chris

What is the best most economical idea or technique you have for making a park standout when you are turning one around?

Clean up all the junk, mow all the lawns, new sign out front, limit the number of cars, only allow A-frame roofs and vinyl siding, plant shrubs, pave road, and lastly for high end park, only allow homes 10 years old.

Best investing, Chris

I’m due to close on MHP this month (if I can EVER get the septic inspector out), & my plans also include replacing mailboxes. I already have the sign (carried it back myself from Costa Rica last week because I got it hand-carved for $50 vs. the $850 quote here) & have made located a source for Italian cypress trees to block the unsightly view of an unkempt yard next door. Lotsa flowers w/go in immediately, especially around the sign. Checking Mon to see what sort of complaint I have to file to get rid of a derelict school bust on the street.

Wow Chris!

You’re going to put all the other “MHP turnaround experts” out of the course-selling and boot camp biz with your straightforward and to-the-point posts. You make them seem ridiculously verbose! : )

I’m still looking for a park, but getting closer to finding one every day.
