I don’t have a recommendation for a broker, but here is some info that may help.
This email response is typical of many in the real estate business. Here’s why I say that.
Now is a very good time to be a MHP broker. Bank financing is available at low rates and properties are trading in some markets at low cap rates. That makes for relatively high sale prices. And great commissions.
They are ‘in-phase’ with the current easy market. Many don’t have the experience of years past when times were not so good. Many don’t own MHP’s themselves. They are salespeople, not adding value to the transaction.
When times get tougher and they are ‘out-of-phase’, they will wonder why their former ‘loyal’ customers don’t come running back to them.
This ‘in-phase’ and ‘out-of-phase’ runs with buyers, sellers and brokers. No one group is immune to it.
If they have a history of adding value to transactions, they may be so busy they don’t have time for new clients. Its all they can do to support their existing client base.
They are in the minority.
Its a good time to be a MHP broker. But finding a good one who will take on a new client requires kissing a lot of frogs.
