This practice has been going on for many years now. I am sure if it goes on here in Del Tura, it goes on in many if not all Home Town America communities. However I will explain what I know goes on here in Del Tura I know both the community mgr. and the salesperson here are guilty of this and working together. Sadly because the new community mgr, also was a salesperson here First they take a listing and as you might expect they tell the sellers everything
they want to hear. So they get the listing, because Home Town has made it very difficult for any outside realty co. to be able to sell in here. Well the one and only sales person here lets call him Mr. C. pretty much does what ever he pleases, and no one questions him Del Tura Mgt that is. Many many folks have had their homes for sale for years. And in many cases the sellers would be lucky if Mr. C has shown their home 2-5 times in 2 or 3 years. As we all know you can't sell
anything if you don't make an effort to show it.
Now this is the sad part, 90% of the sellers are senior citizens. So after a few years of listing their home with no results they get discouraged. Maybe one of them passes away and the other needs to move closer to their kids or family. Well Mr. C has managed to listen to their requests for help with selling and knows they are in real need of him doing something. But does he help them NO. Because he knows from experience they will get so discouraged like many before them and be forced just to walk away.
Now Home Town America and Del Tura Mgt. step in and Re Hab the home making it like new again.
Now Mr. C and Del Tura Mgt. & Home Town America are ready and willing to sell this home, again that they may have had listed for 2 or 3 years. In addition the new buyers are given 2 years half lot rent. Which makes it almost impossible for any of the other residents, which many have lived here for 20 years or more, stuck between a rock and a hard place. Because Mr. C says look you can buy this like new home, and get 2 years half lot rent. Why would you want to buy one of their homes which are not as nice, and you have to pay the full lot rent. And so the process starts all over again for us residents who might like to or really need to sell our homes. There has got to be something done about this shame full practice. Can someone please come to or aid.
