Mobile Home Parks.... Preserve Or Destroy?

Mobile Home Parks....

Preserve Or Destroy?

 

Are The Ole Gray Mares Still What They Used To Be?

 

 

All too often local jurisdictions, communities and developers are quick to pull the plug and DRAIN THE SWAMP. Not so fast! Read this with an open mind before you decide. The pressure is on for all jurisdictions to comply with the State of California affordable housing mandates. It may even be time to start rethinking mobile and manufactured home park communities.

 

Mobile Home Park Communities 

are the last bastion of affordable housing anywhere.

Be it on a sunny surf beach on the north San Diego Coast

or in a picturesque desert setting in  Barstow. 

 

There's no way to create a higher and better use per square and cubic foot than an existing late '60's-'70's mobile home or trailer park. You can demo and scrape them to the ground, re excavate and graade, put in new pads,  infrastructure,  new hard scape, landscape, new anything habitable by man et.al. and make it pencil for the next 50-100 years. LEAVE THEM BE & REBUILD THEM.

 

 

Today, mobile/manufactured home park developments cost less per square foot per ca pita than any other housing in the Country; Possibly the World! If we're sincere about our housing crisis (shortage) let's start reconstituting the thousands of mobile/manufactured home park communities and the millions of mobile/manufactured homes we have throughout America. We might even revive some good ole American history the process.

 

Add to that today's LEEDS & GREEN manufactured housing technology and you just can't beat it. Whether you live in a manufactured home park community or live in a manufactured home in your own backyard, they are now part of our construction and real estate fabric and will be part of American culture for decades to come.
