Park Owners - Buying Power


#1

As I was reading the other post on water submetering, it led me to a thought I had a while back. As a group (park owners), are there opportunities to leverage our combined buying power?

At a basic level, I will be looking into purchasing water meters for my Indiana park. If I were able to buy in larger quantities by teaming up with other park owners, I would think that we could negotiate much better prices. Of course this only makes sense for parks of relative proximity where additional shipping costs still make sense.

I’ve heard this topic discussed even as a negotiating point with home manufacturers for new homes.

Thoughts?
