All Geoff needed was a little time and encouragement from us to start running with the mobile home business. We had a house given back to us after several years (the 2nd sale for us) that we had made a REALLY good return on over the years. It was, however, in pretty poor condition and we did not have the time to fix it back up again from this far away.
This was truly a win/win situation. The home is a 3 bedroom in a family park, and there were none available in that park. He got it fixed up and sold in record time! Since he had already read DOW a couple of times, he knew what he was doing. He just had to change his line of thinking from SFH to mobiles. We were willingly on the other end of the phone line for him to call with any questions.
I encourage everyone to help someone get started who wants to get into this business. That, though, is the key. Geoff approached us, not the other way around. He knew that Jim did mobiles from the local RE group that we all belong to in Florida. The timing just worked that we could flip him a home to get the ball rolling!
