Promoting Manufactured Home Ownership – With “Only 1 in 100 Eaten by a Lion”

September 23rd, 2016

How can we promote homeownership and sell new homes on leased land and at the same time close communities?

It’s like selling tickets to a zoo where ‘only 1 in a 100 are eaten by the lions!

One way to address this is to segment true homeownership land lease communities and differentiate it from traditional ‘parks’ where closure remains a risk, not a certainty but a risk.

Then, we can promote secure homeownership through an image campaign with good fundamentals.  I think it’s our saving grace in public perception and our path to GSE home only financing, too! ##
