Lessons learned? Challenges?

Due Diligence Documents shed light on things that owners (intentionally or unintentionally) try to hide - we found out the rent for the lot was a whopping $70 lower than we initially thought. Which is a big deal considering that we're talking about $33,600 of missed income a year. When you have a property that only cash flows so much, that has an impact on your return!

Congratulations @Megan Haggerty ! This sounds like a really exciting acquisition. It looks like a beautiful park. I'm on the hunt for an MHP in upstate NY as well. This is inspiring. Thanks for sharing I look forward to hearing more as things unfold!
