There seems to be a lot of talk about “working the deals” once you own a mobile home park or, selling MHs and taking back notes, or acquiring existing parks…but, nowhere have I heard how a person could go about starting a new park.
Would it be okay to pose this question here? I would really like to know.
I live here in Virginia and would like to build a small park of maybe 12 pads initially and then leave enough acreage for about 20 more.
So, to get started (assuming that I already have the investor cash to support me in this effort) how do I go about picking out the land to build it on? I realize in some counties they already have Zoning codes that must be adhered to…am I limited to one of these “approved” zoning lot parcels or can I convert…let’s say maybe an Agricultural lot parcel into a “approved” county zoning code parcel?
Do you guys have any ideas?
Also, where could I find any good information on the web that talks specifically about mobile home park water/treatment facilities? I am aware that some in my area are tied right into public water and sewer but, last week I was traveling down in the Northern Neck of Virginia and drove through a park of about 60 pads that had a huge above ground tank…what’s that all about?
Thanks in advance for answering my questions and please pardon the “newbie” talk.
