Any suggestions on how to find a good manager to manage a small mobile home park–100 spaces, 45 occupied? This is a town of about 10,000 population 35 miles from a metro area. I have tried a variety of sources–local ads, Craigslist…How do I find the going salary with this size of park as well?

We typically find our managers from within the park. Look for the house in the best condition; that is likely someone responsible who cares and has pride of ownership. That said, CraigsList has also worked well for us a few times.
To your continued success,
My husband and I are looking for a management position. We have been in real estate for 17 years but have never managed an RV park before. We are fast learners. Would you consider someone inexperienced?

This is a forum for MHP owners, not for job seekers.
There is a spot on mobilehomeparkstore.com for people seeking jobs as managers, as well as park owners looking for managers. I am not sure where your located, but in general- we do not require our managers to have direct experience managing parks. We might be looking for other skills needed like computer skills, maintenance skills etc…
