Will do…(spice up the ad). And interestingly enough, since writing this, have had two interested calls…bet it sells by this weekend!
As for the ads: Hey, Lonnie is the master. Although I have admittedly tweaked here and there to experiment, basically what works is two phrases: “OWNER FINANCING” and “NO BANKS”. Adding monthly payments, how long til you own, interest rate, location…doesn’t matter that much. MH description can also be as vague as “2br/2bth, nice park, clean home.”
Another truism that I’ve discovered and I’m sure many others in this business have as well: buyers in this market want something IMMEDIATELY. Generally speaking, they are not long term lookers. I’m amazed at the fact that someone can call me on Monday inquiring about a home, and if I wait to call them til Wednesday, they may have already bought another one or they suddenly discover they’re moving out of town or whatever…MH buyers seem to be “here and now” in every facet of their lives.
