A “greeter” is a phrase that I coined for the MH community, that I stole from Walmart. At Walmart, a “greeter” is the person who says “welcome to Walmart” and hands you a shopping cart. In a mobile home park, it’s someone who is your eyes and ears and can do simple tasks like pick up litter, put notices on doors, report utility outages, let you know if the mower showed up, etc., but is not allowed to do anything that requires much thought, such as file evictions or dispatch repairs. In some smaller parks (and even stabilized larger ones) it is more cost efficient to hire a low-cost greeter for day to day observations, and do the harder things yourself from home and your laptop. What is the kryptonite to the “greeter” system? As Bret pointed out: park-owned homes or parks in the middle of a massive turn-around. Greeters work best in stabilized park scenarios with few park-owned homes.
