Try starting out with anything Lonnie Scruggs has out on mobile home deals. Most of the time you will be dealing with motivated sellers. Get to know park managers, let them know you’re interested in purchasing
mobile homes, especially from tennts who are consistently late on the lot rent. They can be good “bird dogs” for you! It’s a good way to get your feet
wet without dealing with high dollar deals. Do your homework & don’t jump in too fast! Do it like Lonnie says, and the deals will come! Good Luck!

My last post about the validity of the
information seems to have produced quiet a few
responses. Most seem to have been very
positive. From what I have been able to
figure out from this site, I know know that I
want to get into this line of business.

I live in a rural area, but not too far from a
large city. To some, I live in “the sticks”.
I believe that low priced housing and moble
homes are my way to go. Do any of you folks
have a suggestion of what might be the best
(or better than others) course for someone
with no experience (me) to buy, which would
address the SFD and MH market?

Thank you, all who responsed to my earlier
posting. I am quiet confident that I will be
a regular to this stie.

Also, I was looking for a local investment club, but there are none listed on this site. If anyone is in the North Goergia/S.E. Tennessee area, lets get in touch.

You know. There is a very large real estate group in Georgia you should get in contact with. E-mail me and I’ll give you the name. I can’t think of it at the moment.
