RIP Lonnie Scruggs

April 16th, 2013 · 5 Comments

One of the good ones passed away to day.  Lonnie Scruggs was  real estate investing instructor who wrote books on mobile home investing.  He was famous for “Lonnie Deals.” This is buying an inexpensive mobile home and selling it at a big profit with owner financing.  I am somewhat anti-guru because of the tremendous hype and lack of real information many provide.  However Lonnie was down to earth and gave great information.  Even John Reed who is known for bashing just about all gurus gave Lonnie his seal of approval.  Rest in Peace Lonnie.

    Bum deal! I had no idea he passed away. I bought and read his book on mobile home investing a while back. Seemed like a really neat, down to earth kind of guy.
