Quotes:

“To a degree, you need a little analysis paralysis because, especially when it's your first (mobile home park) deal and you're going to go out and you're going to raise money and you're going to talk to investors, you got to make sure it's right.” - Jordan Savitsky

“You got a whole load of pissed-off tenants because someone came in, jacked up the (mobile home park lot) rent (sometimes by 100% overnight) without even doing any kind of facelift to make the residents feel like they're getting any more value. And then, also, the residents feel like they're just being traded like cattle.” - Jordan Savitsky

“I don't want to just be a guy who owns 30 (mobile home) parks within, you know, 30 miles of each other. I'd like to be sort of more diversified than that.” - Jordan Savitsky

“One of my mentors, he always told me he's like, use the 80 /20 rule. Right. Like if 80 % of it looks good, it's probably a good deal.” - Andrew Keel
