I would like to offer to pay for a portion of, or all, of the cost for a tenant to move their home into my park as an incentive to live there. I know I can approach the local dealerships with my offer to pass onto their customers, but I get very few tenants from the dealers. Most of my tenants have purchased second hand homes and have moved them into my park.
How do you get the word out that you are making this offer? Do you advertise the offer on Craigslist, FB Marketplace, Penny Pincher Paper, fliers at local grocery store, bandit signs,…??? What has worked best for you?
I am not trying to “poach” homes from other parks, but what happens if a tenant takes me up on my offer and currently resides in another park? Do you typically turn them down so as not to aggravate the other park owner?
Just curious how this has worked for other park owners. Does it pay off? How much are you willing to pay to get a tenant to move in?
