I have an older park near several small towns but not located in a high population density area. I have infrastructure in place to accommodate substantially more trailers but don't have the free cash to mass purchase/move/install them. The area has two large projects slated to substantially increase jobs in the area over the next several years. It is anticipated the population will increase accordingly in the area. Does anyone have experience getting larger volumes of mobile homes into your community without significant capital cost? I don't want to try poaching from other MH communities in the area. The ways I can think of are:
- pay to move an individual's trailer to the park and lock it in for a five year term
- offer discounted space rent in exchange for an individual moving their home to us, again for a fixed minimum time period (3-5yrs)
- allow mobile home manufacturers to place homes on our lot with no space rent due until the home is sold
- same as above, but for individual investors with multiple homes or mobile home refurbishers
Ideally it would be one of the latter two options but I don't know how realistic those options are. Anyway, thoughts and experience are much appreciated. Thanks everyone!
