    I wouldn’t live in another mobile home park without signing a lease that guarantees that your monthly rent can never be raised as long as you own that home. An your you HMO fees can’t be raised without all the home owners voting on fees for maintenance on park facilities. It would be better if there were no rental properties,
    the real estate business has become a predatory industry as many poor homeowners are being faced with exorbitant land taxes that they can’t afford so they lose their home to cities who turn around and auction off a 60k home for the taxes owed. So. The new wealthy owner can turn around an rent the home for first, last and deposit, so the renter need 1k-2k to move in, a very lucrative business which many investors are becoming wealthier. The next bubble that will cause the economy to explode like in 2008 as predicted..

    I must have missed this episode or it auto-played after I fell asleep bingewatching John. Im only 1:45 in, but I do want to say thank you John for putting this in other terms and looking at it unconventionally.

    My grandmother and grandfather owned a trailer park, and before I was born and shortly after, the entire family lived in their own little lot. The stories i've heard all sound like great fun. But just the same as the stigma with "walmart clothes" and shit kids do now, it becomes embarassing to tell people you live in a trailer. Its looked at as trashy. So I just didnt really tell anyone because I was kind of ashamed of it.

    But now that I think about it - why be ashamed? My family owned and operated a business and had great lives doing it all together. If anything this just makes me feel they are much more intelligent for not getting wrapped up in a lifetime of mortgage payments.

    They'll keep raising the rent more and more until you leave and their version of "recycling the units" is to just move another tenant in that is ok with paying that high rate that broke the old one because the high rate is a normal rate to them.

    An important question is: who are these "shareholders" that the evil companies are maximizing profits for? Who are the people that demand returns on investment? Unfortunately, as an index fund investor, I'm one of them. Mr. Oliver probably is too. I'm not sure what to do about that.

    "Mobile Home" has nothing to do with being moveable. The "Mobile Home Company" of Mobile, Alabama was the first company to make manufactured housing as a way to get housing for baby boomers fresh form the trenches of WWII. Manufactured housing is a more accurate name.

    In Finland we moved a non-mobile church a mile before the industrial age and today some of our houses and other buildings are standing on and being built on a rented land. Isnt a mobile home without wheels like a lollipop without a stick?

    I bought a new mobile home for 25k on land I own connected to a lake just outside of Chicago. My taxes are 700 a year. Friend bought a 450k home near Chicago with taxes of 15k a year. Guess who gets to travel the world?

    i find that quite interesting, that mobile homes go down in value. In the city I live in a few of my friemds own mobile homes and most of them have gained value on their mobile homes. The most recent apraisal from one of my friends was 120k, for his dual sized trailer, he bought it for 30k in 08. His mobile is among the cheapest in the park, a few i saw were up to 150k, not including the lot rent. Thats the trend that is happing round the city i live in, im not sure if that applies to other parts of the country. Just to put it in perspective you can get a real nice condo for around 70 to 80k.

    I just sold my mobile home (I had intended to live there for the rest of my life). One of the reasons was that when the Park Owner sells the park to developers (something that had started to happen in my area) - owners of "double-wides" only receive $10,000 for their home. I sold mine for $109,000....and felt guilty but did it anyway.

    So experts warn against buying these homes, rising urban land prices make rents go up across the spectrum, but it is the seller's fault that people get in over their heads? Basic research and budget planning appears to be a rare skill these days. As usual, Oliver twists one side of a story.

    the neighborhood i live in (and yes i insist on calling it a neighborhood, not a MHP) just raised our lot rent and i can't figure out why. like there haven't been any improvements. nothing's changed; but they still upped our rent. as a side note: in the 'you bought a home' bit the lady in the green sweater (the buyer) looks like the woman who plays Janet on The Good Place...

    All landlords use this tactic. They know you have very little options once they have your move in costs and deposits and they'll make the rent whatever the hell they want. These scummy business practices are what make things so hard for poor people. It should be illegal to profit from poverty level housing.
