I’m usually mildly amused with your postings, but the things you are saying here can ruin people’s lives, and I am compelled to say otherwise so that other park owners can decide for themselves. I had a tenant lose her job due to the pandemic. In your park she and her young son will be on the streets next week homeless without any hope as that’s “business as usual.” I have chatted with her and her employer - and getting her on a plan to get current as soon as possible. Yes, I realize you think this is a ridiculous practice, but these are unprecedented times.
The government steps in to make sure landlords, en masse, do the right thing in times like this because otherwise the impact to the population would be severely worse (“business as usual screws people”). To all the other park owners reading this - please please do soul searching about what you’re trying to achieve in this business. If it’s only about the money, good luck and reach out to Greg for additional money-centric-only tidbits. For example - don’t forget to require your tenants also put you as the sole beneficiary on their life insurance policies, in addition to the $1M liability policy. Okay he doesn’t do that I don’t think but you get the gist.
Empathy can backfire, sure, so don’t bet the bank on it. But empathy also establishes some of the deepest trust-based relationships you can ever find…where do you want to be if you ever hit hard times?
@Greg I do certainly appreciate your expertise on some posts, but severely disagree with this one. The rib jabs are intended to be professional, and expect a commensurate response - as always.
