I just got my dealer’s license and am already approved through one manufacturer. I talked to 21st about their CRP program where I have to buy 3 homes per year. One couple in the park has designed their home and gotten an invoice for $30K and I was hoping to put them into the home via a rent-to-own arrangement. When I asked 21st to give me a breakdown on how much their costs would be and how all the numbers would work out, I was met with deafening silence. They sent me some marketing materials that talk about their various programs, but they refuse to give me hard numbers on my particular situation.
Couple of questions:
Is this what is like to do business with them? It seems like they should be a little more helpful.
If anyone has had experience with the CRP program, can you give me any idea of how much I can expect their costs to be? If the invoice is $30K, how much do they add on?
My manager attended an industry event for dealers and park owners and not one person in the room had anything good to say about 21st. They did business with them, but nobody liked the process. Is this true? I am concerned that if much bigger operators had such problems, mine will be even worse.
