Quotes: 

“If you're going on evenly and moving along, maybe it's a two or three-year infill project, then you're playing the percentages and the averages should work out in everybody's favor.” - Scott MacNeil

“We’re the absolute best solution for mobile home park-owned homes and selling off any sort of mobile home inventory you have in your community.” - Scott MacNeil

“We don’t use appraisals. So mobile home park community owners can price the units however they like. The borrower just has to be able to afford to repay the loan based on the rate and terms.” - Scott MacNeil

“We try to make it as easy as possible. Our loan officers are trained to chase as much paper as they can and do as much as they can, so the owners of the mobile home parks can leverage our people and not have to hire their own people.” - Scott MacNeil
