Frequently Asked Questions
What type of Marketing Programs do you offer?
Our marketing programs are custom designed to fit your needs. Depending on your urgency to sell, comprehensive packages including full color brochures with interior and exterior color photos are available to hand to prospective purchasers as well as photo bulleting cards to be displayed at your community center.
Why is a full color brochure so important to help me sell my park model or manufactured home?
Two reasons: Memory and Remembrance. With so many properties currently for sale throughout Arizonas manufactured housing and park model communities, it is not unusual for a buyer to view 10 or more homes per day. Average humans retention rate is less than 10%. So if you hope they remember that extra insulated Arizona Room or upgraded cut Berber carpet (or whether your property was before or after lunch) photos and detailed features and benefits might be a good idea. They simply build up the value of the home to help justify the value and help the buyer remember all the upgrades.
Where are these brochures distributed?
Brochures of your property are made available through the Mesa Chamber of Commerce, Arizona Winter Visitors Association, by request and at each property site. We receive numerous inquiries from our ads in numerous publications including the Official Visitors Guide distributed by the Mesa Convention and Visitors Bureau and the Senior Lifestyle Magazine distributed FREE throught Frys and Albertsons and many other strategic locations.
Why should I advertise on the www.azActiveResorts.com web site?
AzActiveResorts.com is currently receiving up to 5000 hits per day, is linked directly to the Mesa and Apache Junction Chambers of Commerse and is ranked high on major search engines with numerous key words. We are also offering special incentives from local businesses and move-in incentives from various communities.
What is a key word?
Key words are words that indicate an area of interest to take you to various web sites that have embedded these coded words; for example when we typed in Arizona Park Models on www.Yahoo.com, the azActiveResorts.com site ranked 5th out of 20,000 results! The site is also advertised extensively throughout various publications and communities.
Can you keep track of how many people view my property?
Yes. Each advertised property is assigned a special reference code. Your custom web page can feature both exterior and interior full color photos of the home advertising your property. Our reports indicate how many people actually view each individual property reference code on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.
My son said he can put my property on the internet for free, why should I pay to have you put my property on your site?
The internet is almost as vast as the universe. You wouldnt send a space shuttle out without ground control.
How much do you charge for your services?
Advertising rates vary. Full color web pages start at $250. If you list the home with our company we deduct any advertising fees from our regular commission at the time of sale.
How much is your commission?
Commission rates are determined on a sliding scale basis. Our commission rates vary depending on the asking and selling price of the home. A representative will be happy to answer your questions during the FREE market value analysis.
We want to sell our home on our own, without listing with an agent. How can you help us?

I heard buying a trailer in Arizona can be as simple as a $7 fee at the title bureau. Why should a use a consultant if I want to buy or sell a home?
Making a purchase of personal property in Arizona can be as simple as a transfer of title by the Arizona Department of Motor Vehicles and a Notary Public. All the other aspects of negotiation including city/park code compliance confirmation, assessor notification, obtaining 504 transport permits, lease with option to buy, first right of refusal, trade ins and financing including lien satisfaction, bonded titles, owner paper contracts, other facets of a purchase may justify consulting an expert in the industry prior to entering an agreement to purchase.
What is a liquidation service?
We have wholesale buyers and investors on hand should you simply need to liquidate the property for cash immediately.
What if I have it rented this season?
Thats okay. We can set an appointment to come out, inspect the home, negotiate the sale and close when your tenants leave. Its a good idea to plan ahead. In the case of a retail listing, we simply make the possession date post lease.
What is a Listing Placement Service?
In the case that we are not able to serve your geographic area at this time, we will search your area for the most capable agent and help you negotiate a listing agreement with your best interest in mind. A listing agreement is no different that any other retail service agreement; ask questions, and get everything in writing!
What is a buyer broker service?

We can represent you or act as your agent in a purchase including one or all of the following: locating, negotiating (including presenting offers), facilitating (paperwork), moving , delivering, set up and lending (Team Work Mortgage-specializing in home-only lending). We have a sliding scale or flat fee depending on your needs.
