I am sending this message to the writers of the Blogs.
I read every update that you write and wish to commend you on your dedication to keeping up with writing them. It does provide a great view
of the owner / manger perspective of turn-around park operation.
It has opened my eyes to view the parks and the park management issues
of the parks I do “Lonnie Deals” in a different light. It has changed how we work. We now go to greater lengths to improve the outside of the homes we rehab.
We do more work on the yard and outside of the homes. Besides just pulling weeds and clearing out junk, we put in some flowers and bark. We rehab the entry stairs and decks. Paint some homes…
We now put in mini blinds or curtains in all the windows (the sheets, towels, rags or whatever our buyers where hanging really don’t look good).
We put in low flow fixtures in when we need to replace plumbing fixtures.
These changes have actually improved our selling prices, reduced selling time and get positive feedback from mangement and other park residents. The park managers have given us a few deals we would not have heard about.
Thanks again for your work…
PS… I have one small request, the trackback/comment moderator needs to update the files, I want to hear what is being discussed…
