Marcus & Millichap, Sperry van Ness, CBRE, and Sunstone seem to be the ‘big four.’ You’ll find plenty more names from the MobileHomeParkStore.com and LoopNet.com websites.
Whatever firm you join, please be an honest broker!
Divide the asking price of the MHP by all the lots to come up with a deceptively low price/space (divide only by occupied and paying lots). Double-especially don’t divide by all the lots when the park is only 30% occupied
Come up with your own ‘pretend’ financials (e.g. add-in a non-existent $50/month rent increase that the new owner ‘could’ put through, and then remove entirely the Lawnmowing, Management, and Maintenance costs ‘because most owners do this themselves and the cost is really $0’)
‘Forget’ to mention known environmental hazards
Include rosy pro-formas that assume the Property Taxes magically stay the same, even though the proposed acquisition price is 6x the assessed value that the current owner’s father paid when he purchased the property in 1974
If you do all this, you will be the only honest broker in the land, and I will be your most loyal customer, and purchase every mobile home park you have for sale at full asking price. (:P)
Good luck with that,
