Manufactured housing units are found throughout the United States, and the popularity of mobile homes and recreational vehicles (RVs) will continue to grow as manufacturers offer new design concepts and aging baby boomers look for affordable housing and travel options.
Appraising Manufactured (Mobile) Home Communities and Recreational Vehicle Parks presents a broad overview of the manufactured housing industry and examines the various factors that affect the value of mobile home and RV parks. It describes the various types of home and travel units available and the communities and parks where they are found. The text explores the complex legal, physical, and economic challenges involved in owning and operating mobile home and RV parks and demonstrates practical methods for valuing these unusual properties. With in-depth analysis of the operation of mobile homes and RV parks, the book will be useful not only to appraisers, but also to investors, regulators, owners, and buyers and sellers of mobile home and RV parks.
