Hey y’all how’s everyone doing?? I spent some time this morning reading up on posts here and on CRE and I tell you not a lot has changed lol.
The winners are still winning and the losers are still losing.
A lot has been written on readership and posting volumes here and CRE and I can tell you right now I know the Owners of this forum and they will continue to fund this site if even one person is deriving benefits from this forum. They are men of character and I would never say this about anyone that didn’t deserve it even for 1M in cash.
6 months ago I posted that I wouldn’t offer advice until I could establish a business that works…my old model was and is broken.
Since that time I’ve made just over 44K in outside money excluding rentals I already owned. I have done 14 mobile home placements as follows:
Get a current Greentree list of repos in my area.
Advertise online in Craigslist (free), Ocala4/Sale.com, etc and in my ads state than I can find a home, break it down, provide permitting, provide water, sewer, electric. I now have a vendor that provides skirting, decks, painting, flooring.
I am paid $100 per hour for my hours and I Found vendors willing to reduce their prices 20% to me which I pocket and I’ve been able to help 13 out of state families and one person stationed in Iraq active military. I have earned this money…have put another 20K miles on my poor 08 Tundra but maybe this is something some of you all can do…capitalize on your knowledge and expertise in one of the mobile niches. I found a lot of buyers don’t buy used mobiles because of the fear of doing these needed services. What gave me this idea was a saleswoman at one of the still standing mobile home lots that sell only new homes. I told her I didn’t understand why smart folks would pay 80K for a depreciating asset instead of good used at 1/3 that price and she said, “People are basically scared of the set up process and want to sign their names 5 times on a contract and have the headaches put onto us” WOW!
Until I put a full year of consistent revenue under my belt I won’t post in detail and possibly have a MOM here in FL again to detail process and visit in works projects.
I know I don’t want to own am infill Park or a small all rental Park. For me these are JID (Jobs In Disguise) lol
I used these funds to purchase 2 nice mobiles on land. One is a singlewide 2002 16 X76 3/2 with wonderful screen porch and all appliances including washer/ dryer. Ripped out carpet and vinyl and installed laminate from stem to stern (4K) Paid 12,6K for the home and land(1/2 acre) and rented for 625 per month first weekend listed. Other is a 84 double 3/2 on 1.8 acres, 6K of rehab needed (needs cabinets and tops in kitchen) and another 5K in new laminate. Price for this one was 16K includes closing costs. It will rent for 800 per month and is fully fences with one car garage and 2 stall barn!!!
In my area now is the time to buy…there ius a huge transfer of wealth in our Country going on and I want my share.
On a closing note I have two items:
Tony I really respect the energy and positive input here and on CRE. You are an inspiration to lots of us and I can’t tell you how happy I am to have met you and Scott and being able to attend your Bootcamp. Keep up the good works you do every day and hope all is well with you and your family!
Dale, Dale, Dale life is short. Enjoy each and every day. I know you are going through a tough time but like everything else this is temporary. Lighten up dog…there is a whole world out ther to explore. If you don’t like us, go to another site or use the energy you expend dissing folks into making money for you and your family. We are judged by our deeds…Dale what have YOU done this year besides ranting on a FREE forum?? Thought so…
