    Glad our fifth wheel is paid in full and the price we pay for it on a lot Is better then paying for a house with a mortgage of $2,400 a mont and you can buy the lot which a lot of people don't do or the RV resort won't sale...It's a game that needs players who understand and make bread. Stop getting a damn trailer and get a RV/5Th wheel you will be surprised how better that is then living in a "mobile home" that isn't truly MOBiLE

    I tend to agree with my parents experience: Stay away from mobile homes. They sound like the cheap way to retire. They're anything but. You might as well rent an apartment or townhouse.

    And this is happening to apartments, town houses, and houses period. We bailed the banks out, but failed to realize the banks weren't helping anyone but themselves. We needed those homes, and need more buildings. Houses and apartments fall apart and require rebuilding as well as new construction as population grows even at 1%.
    IT wasn't that we had too many homes, it was that the homes to incomes were too expensive. So multiple families were literally living with each other in the same apartment or house. People can only share a 1 to 3 bedroom house or apartment for so long under multiple families until they're get sick of it and try (often in the inevitable bankruptcy or financial ruin) to rent their own or even borrow again to "buy" a house.

    We forget in the US what built all the homes and apartments in the first place. Several housing bills nationally to build housing subdivisions, apartments, etc.
    Mid '70's 35.3 new constructions per 1,000 households trended down to the current 2017 9.5 new constructions per 1,000 households.
    And we wonder why home "equity" is even a thing.
    When quantity supplied is constantly diminishing that has the tendency (all things being equal) to cause prices to increase.
    There's nothing magical about this other than we need to take control over the housing markets so we are supplied with affordable homes that are no more expensive than 1.5 to 2.5 times gross yearly income. Not the internationally agreed economically unsustainable beyond 2.5 times; currently often 3 to 5 times gross yearly incomes.

      It's happening to apartment renters too here in So Cal. Our politicians have been talking endlessly while essentially ignoring the affordable housing situation and this is a repercussion. But still they keep building absolutely huge mansion homes.... condos are starting at $800,000. It has become untenable. But apt owners are also being swept up in the rent-gouging flurry.

    Buying a mobile home is no worse than renting...either way you are throwing away tons of money. Buying a house is no great deal either. You pay two or three times what it is worth by the time you pay it off.....and you are at the mercy of property taxes skyrocketing too...don't pay lose your house...even if you have the deed! Mobile homes are a valid option for many people. Buying one used is better financially, but even if you buy new you are not throwing your money away. If you take care of it, it can maintain SOME reasonable value over time. Many mobile homes that were built in the 1960's and 1970's still are in great shape with maintenance. Sky high interest on loans make the purchase price of a mobile home double what you pay for it over a shorter than stick built home's loan. The issue here is not that people are choosing mobile homes so they are not homeless, but that they are being made homeless by investors coming in, jacking up the rent on sitting ducks. It is cruel and heartless and should be outlawed. It is literally stealing from people.

    LOL, YEP lived in a studio that was connected to mobile home park.Lived there for 20 years and it changed hands three times. Rent would go up each time but kept pace with the area... Then a gentleman bought it that has been buying other mobile home parks. Rent immediately went up minimum 20% for some higher. What he is known for is putting in those small wooden huts (studios) and charging $1000 a month for them. He likes them because he can set them close together .Most of the people that were in the park where retired living on social security or disability , a single mom with her child and a couple just starting out with two kids. When people asked about it his reply was he was bring the rents up to current market rates. Rates for new places but the studios like I lived in and the main house were built in teh 1920's. They had rats and mice infesting them. The one mobile home was so bad the lady who lived there moved out and sued and one court case against the owner. With in a four week period near the end I trapped 8 mice. Yet the new owner the man raising the rates got a break himself. The owner at the time entered into some kind of partnership creating a LLC . transfering the property to the llc saves him on taxes. Use to be that spaces for travel trailers were cheaper. You basically , in some place just paying for a patch of dirt that has a sewage hook up and a power plug. Not in this area rent to park your travel trailer not mobile home but travel trailer $850 a month plus utilities. usually $100 flat rate. So next time one wonders why is there so much homelessness there ya go. Rich harvesting money from the middle class, the middle class harvesting from the working poor, the poor fight among themselves for the scraps tossed out.

    So the lesson here is if you are going to buy a mobile or manufactured home put it on your own land. Renters always get screwed, it is not a republican or democratic thing. You can beat the system by becoming a land owner. They should teach you that in high school.

    8 bought a mobile home when I was 20. My intention was to buy land, put it on the land, then build a house and move it out. I was living in Gwinnett County, the fastest growing county in the United States in 1980. So land went ski high and you had to have 5 acres to set up a mobile home. It I lived in it and moved it twice, until 1983. I was making plenty of money and in 1983 I had an apartment in Roswell Georgia and the mobile home still in Lawrenceville. My girlfriends sister moved into our apartment so I got a second apartment in the same complex. My girlfriend became my wife and we moved to Decatur Alabama for a year and did a lease to purchase twice. Both buyers lived there for about a year. A lease to purchase was better than renting. Both parties had bad credit, so I got a down payment, they had to pay the taxes, and they didn't call me if the toilet wouldn't flush. We moved back to Lawrenceville and we lived in it for about 6 months and we moved to Rome so we could be close to mother as my beautiful young wife was pregnant and I worked late and didn't want her to ever be alone. . I moved the mobile home to Rome Georgia where it sat in mother's yard for 5 years. I think I gave around $10,000.00 for it in 1980. Mother's property was in the city and I couldn't set it up to live in in the city. My neighbor who owned the property joining our 7 lots in the city had 2 lots that faced the road behind us and was in the county. My wife was killed in an auto accident in 1986 and I didn't, well I couldn't put our son in daycare. Mother talked me into moving in with her so our son would have a mother. Everyone knew my wife had my heart and it would be years before I could love a woman the way a woman deserves to be loved. I lived with mother for 4 years and she was a great mother to my son but she could not stop being my mother. So I bought the 2 lots behind her and built a house around the mobile home. Including the land, I put $27,000.00 in the house and lived in it for 4 years and sold it for $49,000.00, financed it with total of payments of $81,000.00 on a 15 year note. My son's money, $37,000.00 he got from the settlement of his mother's passing had lost $10,000.00 in what the law required I put in, government bonds. This was during Reagan's 2nd recession. I took my son's $27,000.00 and gave him the $81,000.00 note that he got plus interest on the accumulated payments. He ended up getting over $100,000.00 for my mobile home and his $27,000.00. The court took the guardianship from me and turned it over to an attorney how only made 1% of the interest. I knew I was not supposed to invest his money in real estate but the 1980's and early 1990's was a terrible time to play the market. Real estate is almost always a solid investment. You can always make the best out of a bad investment if you are patient, smart, have the right knowledge and have a little balls. The reason it is called "playing the market" not investing in Wall Street is because, if you don't have inside trader information it's like playing poker with guys who have a ton more money than you and they can see your cards but you can't see theirs. Playing the market is for suckers and crooks. I have predicted every "correction" they call it when the stocks get overpriced and they dump their stocks for huge profits, crashing the market, then buy them back for pennies on the dollar. Unless you are a congressman or you work on Wall Street never play the market. Mitch McConnell has made over $25 million being the senator from Kentucky by having inside trader information. Congress or stock brokers are not supposed to use inside trader information to turn a profit, but we can write books on what they should be doing and the crooked things they are doing. Anyone who thinks Mitch McConnell represents them is of a very low IQ.

      PS. I bought a used mobile home in the late 90's for $5000, sold it a few years later for 8k. I'd invested about $250 in upgrades. Buying used isn't necessarily catastrophic. For me, it was mildly profitable. (raw numbers. 60% profit margin is arguably superb ROI.) If I lost everything, $5000 was easily covered by the difference in rent I would have been paying. So, YMMV. Buying new is what could ruin you. A lot like a new car depreciates catastrophically.

    Mobile homes are perhaps the worst type of home to buy new. Not only do you pay for the home which depreciates like a car and although it's called a "mobile home" they really aren't designed to be moved more than once! To top it off you also rent the place the home is parked on and hope the owners don't sell or close the park making you have to move your home to another park.

    We have property and bought a repossessed 1100 sf mobile home for $21k, spent $3k to have it moved and set up. The bonus we didn't expect was in property taxes. If this same house was a "regular" house, our tax would be about $7k higher. Also, we don't live in an area subject to tornadoes or hurricanes. It is a great solution for us! I would never pay full price or live in a park with lot rental.

    This is one of the most watched episodes. I use to own a mobile home. I moved out but had to pay lot rent as I repaired the home to sell. So many things were repaired and replaced because a water pipe broke due to my former husband bad installment of a thermostat that didn't turn on the furnace! (He's an idiot, as am I for trusting him). Anyway, the mobile home park wouldn't work with me for raising lot rents literally monthly. I was paying $160.00 when I moved there, years later the rent was 400.00 with no improvements to the park at all.I met a mobile home mover...and I gave him the home. I was desperate to get out of paying for lot rent in a home I wasn't even staying in. It was with great glee that I called the rent office and told them I gave away the home and it was being moved out of the park. The park managers then said. We could have worked with you...but yah. You didn't. I loved ripping that 400.00 a month out of their hands.
