The Hicks System a new Star Community Rating System



The Hicks System a new Star Community Rating System

by Edward Hicks

While assisting clients in finding qualified m/h land lease communities for purchase as buyer’s agent, I have found it necessary to keep a numerical score which will allow a comparison between the communities.  Although many investors and other professionals refer to a community as being from 1 to 5 stars, they are merely rating a park on a scale of 1 to 5 without any specific criteria to go on. 

 

The older “5 star” system which was originally designed by Woodalls Publication has long ago become obsolete.  For more background on the obsolete system, read “The Whole Star Story” from the November 2004 issue of the Journal.  It is also at:   www.mobilehomepark.com/TheWholeStarStory.html

2.       Amenities

3.       Sites

 

Values determined by the size and orientation of homesites, from large parallel to perpendicular, all the way down to obsolete (will only take RV units or older smaller units which are generally out of production.

 

4.         Homes

 

Rating is based on the size, quality, and condition of the homes within the community.  Value includes accessory structures, and their condition.  Rental homes are generally a negative.

 

5.         Parking
