Corporate landlords are gobbling up mobile home parks and quickly driving up rents — here’s why the space is so attractive to them

QuoteMarksLeftSideCorporate landlords are gobbling up mobile home parks and quickly driving up rents — here’s why the space is so attractive to them

The hunt for yield has pushed private equity firms and professional investors into new segments of the real estate market.

In recent years, sophisticated investors have snapped up multi-family units and single-family homes. Now, corporate landlords are targeting the most cost-effective segment of the real estate market: mobile home parks.

The most affordable U.S. housing option

Manufactured homes or mobile homes are considered the most affordable non-subsidized housing option in America. That’s because the owners own only the prefabricated unit and not the land under the home. The land is usually leased from the landlord of a trailer park.

The average monthly rent for a mobile home in 2021 was $593. That’s significantly lower than the average one-bedroom condo rental rate of $1,450. The mobile park rental also often includes utilities and insurance.

Rents typically rise 4% to 6% annually and renters have the flexibility to move their housing unit to another park. These factors make the manufactured home highly attractive to low-income households.

As of 2020, nearly 22 million Americans lived in mobile homes. That’s 6.7% of the total population or about one in 15 people across the country. However, the economic inefficiencies that make these manufactured homes affordable also make them attractive to professional investors.

Investing in mobile home parks

Factors such as below-market rents and disrepair make mobile home parks attractive for investors seeking to add value. The typical mobile home park lot costs $10,000, which means 80 lots would be worth $800,000 on average.

Put simply, the entry price for these parks is much lower than multi-family apartments and condo buildings across the country.

Professional investors can also raise rents significantly to improve the valuation of the property. Attracting tenants with higher incomes or improving the park’s amenities and infrastructure are other value-add strategies that make this asset class appealing.

The fact that moving a typical mobile home costs between $3,000 to $10,000 also means that most tenants are unable to afford the move. This gives landlords immense pricing power.

Meanwhile, the yield is much higher. The capitalization rate (the ratio of net operating income to market price) could be as high as 9%, according to real estate partners Dave Reynolds and Frank Rolfe, who together are the fifth-largest owner of mobile home parks in the U.S.

The largest mobile park landlord is real estate veteran Sam Zell. Zell’s Equity LifeStyle Properties (ELS) owns 165,000 units across the country and the asset is a key element of his $5.4 billion fortune.

In recent years, larger investors such as Singapore’s sovereign wealth fund GIC and private equity firms such as The Carlyle Group, Brookfield, Blackstone, and Apollo have also added exposure to this asset class.

Even Warren Buffett is involved. His firm’s subsidiary, Clayton Homes, is the largest manufacturer of mobile homes in the U.S., and also operates two of the biggest mobile home lenders, 21st Mortgage Corp. and Vanderbilt Mortgage.

You can invest too

Retail investors looking for exposure to mobile home parks have plenty of options. Acquiring a park is, perhaps, the most straightforward way to access this asset class. However, publicly-listed stocks and real estate investment trusts offer exposure too.

Sam Zell’s Equity LifeStyle Properties is listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker ELS. Sun Communities Inc. (SUI) owns 146,000 units across the U.S. and some in Canada, while Legacy Housing Corp. (LEGH) builds, sells, and finances manufactured homes.

Retail and institutional investors could see more upside from this segment as the economic inefficiencies are ironed out. ##


Additional Information with More MHProNews Analysis and Commentary

Beyond terminology errors, Raisinghani failed to mention several publicly traded firms that are involved in the manufactured home community space or produce manufactured homes. Cavco Industries (CVCO), Skyline Champion (SKY), Nobility Homes (NOBH) are publicly traded builders of HUD Code manufactured homes he didn’t mention. Among manufactured home communities, UMH Properties (UMH), Flagship Communities (MHC-UN.TO), and Killiam – which has apartments as well as manufactured home communities. There are other players to be sure who are either have some publicly traded exposure and/or are private firms operating in manufactured housing in one or sometimes more capacities.

Among the comments posted on Yahoo’s article above are these:

  • duncan

“These vultures are destroying one of the few havens left for low-income people. To promote buying these parks and then raising rents to generate higher profits at the expense of tenants who can’t afford them in unconscionable. This is blackmail since most tenants can’t afford to move their homes or find a new place to live. Laws in many states prevent relocation of older mobile homes.”

  • B

“This is why they must limit the buying power of these investors. If they don’t, this will destroy whatever “middle income” people there are. Housing builds generational wealth. You can’t have a country full of rich renters, it just doesn’t work.”

  • Disgruntled American

“Why are landlords actively trying to create more homeless people? If you price everything out of everyone’s range, who’s going to rent your property?”

  • Caedmon

“So are we saying that there will be nothing left for the lower income levels of our society for decent housing?”

  • GySgt213

“I listened to one of these investors being interviewed on NPR about not making repairs or upkeep of these parks. They don’t care about the people living there. I mean they are making so much money they really do not care if the roads flood or anything else. Counties and cities can complain about whatever they are neglecting is having a negative impact on county and city property and they don’t care. Sue them but they see that as the cost of doing business. They will just raise the cost of renting their land if you do. And that is why a lot residents don’t want to sue.”

  • Stock

“There was a half-hour segment about this on Last Week Tonight a while back, felt really bad for these people. Mobile homes were supposed to be something like the last refuge for those who couldn’t afford homes or rent, and now even those are just becoming another vehicle for investors to squeeze blood out of a stone that can barely be squeezed any longer.”

  • fast

“Basically, they will just increase the homeless population.”

  • ParaBellum

“Commercial investors should not be allowed to purchase any single family dwellings.”

  • Kol

“From college to healthcare and even mobile home parks – they want it all and will take it all. Corporations in the US seek to claim every last dime before someone dies and if that’s not enough, the US government will step in and provides more.” ##


On 9.10.2022 at 7.17 AM, there were 188 comments like those cited above on that Yahoo Finance article. This is what longtime industry pro and observer Martin “Marty” Lavin, J.D., would caustically refer to as the industry’s ‘other’ image campaign.


If the review of the first few dozen are any indication, then the bulk focused on the negative impacts of private equity ‘vulture’ capitalist involvement in manufactured housing. For balance, overlooking the problematic use of terminology, Raisinghani got many facts correct. But among the obvious goofs from a ‘just the facts’ industry professional’s vantagepoint is the erroneous claim that “The typical mobile home park lot costs $10,000, which means 80 lots would be worth $800,000 on average.” While older and smaller communities in more rural locations may be found for that type of figure, more desirable investor-sought properties are going for several times that 10K per homesite price-point.  For instance. Using the data from Sun (SUI) below, the average acquisition cost for sites during that period was about $71,856. While it must be noted that this included RV and marina sites, not just manufactured homes, it would not be uncommon cost per site for nicer manufactured home communities that the largest REITs often seek. In the UMH Properties ‘case study’ example shown following the Sun graphic, they said that the acquisition cost for that specific property was $17,000 per site. Note that beyond location and the perceived quality of the community asset, the percentage of occupied sites and the revenues at the time of purchase are among the factors that drives the higher costs for SUI or ELS in their acquisition model.

Notice: MHProNews plans a special report in the near term that will unpack facts from Sun and other manufactured home communities. Stay tuned.



What is often overlooked in such reports is the fact that some REITs and consolidators are paying at times more to buy an existing property – due in part to occupancy – than it does to develop a site from the ground up (greenfield developing). Who said? Sun Communities CEO Gary Shiffman.

“Drew, it’s Gary. There certainly is and it’s certainly the West Coast, certainly right up to the Northwest is area of concentration where we feel, we can actually develop communities to a better return for our shareholders than buying them at the cap rates that they’re trade at currently.” From a Seeking Alpha earnings call transcript. To get more insights and details on ground up developing costs, see the report linked below.

The examples shown also reveal how the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) has arguably failed authentically representing “all segments” of the industry because that wave of negative comments is indicative of how that Yahoo Finance audience sees the business practices of numbers of firms in our profession.

There are too many topics raised in the above that have been glossed over, but in fairness, his column was also brief (over 600 words). To learn more, see the linked reports that follow.

    As the 2020 midterms draw closer, Biden and Democrats are attempting various efforts to stir up their base and encourage or ‘buy’ votes, such as through the constitutionally questioned student loan forgiveness plan. Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi previously said the plan would require Congressional approval. What happened to that? Who died and made Biden a ruler by fiat? Joe Biden and some of his admin officials announced inflation is ‘zero percent’ for the prior month. What? Who believes that who is going to the grocery store? It was running at 9.1 percent the previous month, but many believe that the actual rate of inflation is about double that claim. Yes, gas prices have fallen, due to an apparent drop in global demand as an economic slowdown is taking place. The Washington Examiner said that a historic record 88 percent now thinks that the U.S. is on the wrong track under Biden. As the value of the dollar erodes, that impact should be considered when looking at stock market performance.
