@steven , as per your post:
- “Of those 75 (homes), there is one 3rd party Lonnie Dealer that owns 30 homes.”
Personally, I am not a fan of Lonnie Dealers.
My Husband and I had a bad experience with a Lonnie Dealer.
I swear that our Lonnie Dealer stood outside a Bail Bondsman’s Company to get their new Tenants (which meant our new Tenants).
One of our Lonnie Dealer Tenants decided it was ok to go outside in yard and use the bathroom. We brought this to the attention of the Lonnie Dealer. The Lonnie Dealer thought it was funny. The Tenant said that he felt it was acceptable behavior.
No…this was not funny…nor was it acceptable behavior.
We ended up evicting the Lonnie Dealer’s Tenant and the Lonnie Dealer from the MHP.
The Lonnie Dealer only owned 2 Mobile Homes. One he could move…which he did. The other could not be moved (because of age), so we purchased it.
Lonnie Dealers do not care about your Tenant Base.
If you allow Lonnie Dealers in your MHP, the Lonnie Dealer’s Tenant Base will run off your good Tenants.
Personally, I would not purchase a MHP with 30 out of 75 MHs owned by one person.
We wish you the very best!
