the price is the problem - Posted by David S

not the work needed to repair the damage. This dealer is way, way out of line on the price. I would imagine that the insurance company paid the mh off in full, gave it to the dealer, and the dealer hauled it to the sales center so that he could sell the insured another home. It happens all the time.
Here is an example: 2000 model 32x80 with similar damage. The dealer wouldn’t even move the home from the property of the insured (larger homes cost too much to move). The insurance company called me and asked if I would take the home for FREE.
Even more times, the insurance company will “give” the home to the insured (what a deal…) so they (the insurance company) won’t have the expense of relocation or remarketing.
PS: I refused the home, for now… They have had it for 3-4 months without “getting rid” of it. I plan to make the insurance company an offer that if they will pay 1/2 of the moving expense, I will take the home to one of my parks.
