Waaay back in the MOM days; I remember Rick, Jefferson just starting out, Frank & Dave before they took MHU, and Erik, I think.
Switched my main focus from Lonnie Deals to MH-on-land rentals, always on the eyeball for a park that fits my criteria. Not that I’m picky . . … Took 12 years, but this might be a starter:
25 spaces, rents at the high end, park pays water and garbage, recently repaired/upgraded septic system. Preliminary due diligence on expenses shows this park with 90K NOI, owner did not mention a price yet, but did say last appraisal was at 1.2m . . . by my pencil nub thats a 7.5 cap.
Utils could be split out, sewer is a block away . . . there are ways to do a little sumpin’ sumpin’ to squeeze a little more juice.
Not looking at this as a turnaround flip project; its not. Ive done LDs in this park for years, and i know it well. Formal DD should be quick & easy. Currently mismanaged, just needs some cosmetic work done on units, tenants, and grounds. Easy peasy for someone who knows the business as I’d like to think I do.
I see this as a good starter, get my sea legs, so to speak, and it will cash flow enough to let my wife quit her job. I like it as a cash flow vehicle.
No money here. Owner may be willing to do all or partial owner financing, I’d like an 8 to 10 cap, as a vet Im told I may qualify for a Patriot Express loan for up to 500K, local credit union carry the rest. Or owner finance for a year, then refi @ CU.
Thoughts? An out-of-state 12 cap turnaround is not in the cards for me at this time.
