So I’ve heard that it is strongly preferred to have a manager who lives in the park. However, I’m stuck with a dilemma as I would like to replace my current manager, but I only have two legitimate candidates to chose from:
Candidate A - moved into the park two months ago and is an okay but not great candidate. She is untested and has a few potential red flags on her, but seems overall competent. I’m not excited about hiring her though since I really can’t tell how well she will do on the job.
Candidate B - Is a great candidate and definitely has his act together. However, he is buying a stick built house and moving three miles away next month.
Does anyone have experience hiring a manager who doesn’t live on site. Would you pick a great candidate who lives offsite to be manager, or an okay candidate who lives in the park? Unfortunately these are the two best candidates I have to pick from out of my current tenant base.
