Rather than partnering with a prefab designer or tiny home architect, they chose to work with a traditional mobile home manufacturer because of the scale of the project (100 homes).

  1. So they went from small trailers to " tiny homes " LOL….LOL

  2. Very attractive neighborhood.

  3. I almost bought in there two years ago. It's just too cramped, and too expensive. Plus the land costs each month. But, it's a great neighborhood. Nice finishes, but very very small, and right up against the neighbors.

  4. I fell in love with tiny homes because of their uniqueness, creative storage, individual space & ability to move it wherever life takes you!! These offer none of that:( It's simply a mobile home park 🙁

  5. This is expensive.

  6. $200,000? Outrageous!

  7. an hour and a half west of this in orange county it's 1300-1800 a month for land lease.A lot of orange county sellers walk away with 400-700k when they sell. they can easily buy this at 200k and afford 650-900 a month for life, especially with social security

  8. Mobile Homes in parks are not capital investments. They are an investment of peace of mind. When you cant afford a mortgage on a $500k house or $2500 a month rented apartment, a mobile home is a good alternative. You can pay a cheap price for an older established mobile, and then pay a modest rental fee each month. This is why they are so popular with seniors. Anyone who tells you a mobile home in a park is an investment is lying to you. The only exceptions are high demand locations like central California coast, or if you buy a tore up mobile home for next to nothing or free, put in some money to flip it, and make a modest sales profit.

  9. If I can't own the dirt, I don't want the house.

  16. I've seen a Park Cottage RV, which is just a small mobile home, for $45,000. There are definitely cheaper options.
