We are being told by prospective managers and others that we are not paying enough for the management team.

Manager will be responsible for all repairs to the park and park owned homes that are vacant. Manager will not be responsible for replacing anything that is a capital improvement. For example, things like replacing fences, seal coating, asphalt replacing, gator paving, crack filling, rehabbing a home for sale or lease option, sewer line replacing, water line replacing. Manager can do those things but will give us a bid just like any contractor based on their time and materials.
However, if it is a repair then that will fall under manager duties. For example, water line break, sewer line break and repair, sewer line clean out using our machine, water line break under the home (riser); broken couple of slats of fence
