Sort of. It was a 100% POH park when we bought it. Before we sell any home, we paint the exterior, sealcoat the roof and repair or replace the skirting along with any needed exterior repairs. The buyer has to pay for these repairs in the form of a “down payment” or more accurately, purchasing of rent credits.
So if an existing tenant wants to buy a home, we require $1,500 “down”, which we use to renovate the exterior. This often includes replacing some or all of the windows, or at least resealing the windows. We may also install some shutters, etc.
If it’s a new resident, we require that amount up front. If it’s an existing tenant that we want to keep, and they want to buy the home, we’ll finance the $1,500.
We’re also trying some other new stuff to bring up the park, like yard of the month contest with the winner each month getting a $25 Lowes gift card.
For residents (as opposed to tenants) we’re also offering to reimburse 50% of the cost of an orange or grapefruit tree. The theory is that people LOVE their citrus trees so it’ll help keep good residents, as well as give a sense of community.
