Home Re-Sale Value
For most of us our home is our most valuable asset, and ParkLand is committed to protecting the value of our residents’ homes. Our goal is to make each of our communities better each day, and we invest significant resources in pursuit of that goal. At re-sale time, we want our residents to enjoy the advantages of a stable and professionally managed community.
In addition, we also are a major purchaser of homes. Although we consider it unfortunate to ever lose a resident, we recognize that situations change – new job opportunities, changes in familial status, etc. We believe that quality manufactured homes are valuable assets. As a result, we very often purchase homes from residents who need to relocate and either do not want to move their home or cannot do so financially. We offer fair prices and make the process painless and quick. We want our residents to realize the equity they have built in their homes.
There are numerous benefits associated with living in a quality manufactured home located within a ParkLand community. One of the most important may be the sense of community that exists within our communities. Apartment buildings typically experience a 50% tenant turnover rate each year – that means that half of the tenants move out each year and a similar number of new people move in each year. It is hard to develop meaningful relationships and a sense of trust with such short-term neighbors. Conversely, our communities are primarily composed of long-term residents. Most own their own homes and some have lived within the community for over 20 years. While we are always welcoming new residents into the communities, they are joining a neighborhood.
ParkLand residents do not share walls, ceilings or floors with other residents. Each home is a free standing structure that affords our residents a greater degree of privacy. This provides great peace of mind to families with young children as well as active adults and seniors. Our residents are free to enjoy their neighbors without having to live right on top of each other. Furthermore, our residents very much appreciate having their own private yards. Our home-sites provide areas for children to play, adult gatherings, gardening, etc. Furthermore, many people elect to construct large decks which further increases living space. A quality home, private yard and privacy – all at an outstanding value.
Although we don’t like empty lots in our communities, our Adopt-A-Lot program lets residents put the land to good use. In exchange for maintaining the lot (mowing, weeding, etc), residents may use an open lot for extra parking, a garden, a kids play area, or an entertainment area. Certain program rules and regulations apply, but they are simple and straightforward and are for the general well-being of the community.
