Welcome to the Mobile Home Park Academy podcast. In this episode, Charles and I will discuss mistake number 8 from our popular eBook, “The 21 Biggest Mistakes Investors Make When purchasing their First Mobile Home Park…and how to avoid them.”
One thing we see often is that many investors will choose to look for parks locally for the sole purpose of being near the park. There is nothing wrong with being close to your park, but you definitely don’t need to be. If you find that you live in a market where CAP rates are insanely low or in a market that is going through tough times, you would be much wiser to invest outside of your immediate area.
The business model and management style we teach is effective whether you live across the street from your park or across the country. Don’t put yourself in the position of buying a bad investment just for the sake of being close to it. Proximity does not correlate to success in this business.
