The Comeback of the Trailer.
For centuries, trailer parks have been looked upon as nothing more than an undesirable place to live. It's been labeled as where the poor, crime, drugs, and violence lurk, whether this is actually true or not. But as the housing affordability gap continues to broaden and the middle class continues to shrink, trailers are becoming increasingly popular. Investors have started to catch on to this trend and are welcoming the thought of re-branding the trailer park with open arms. Instead of "trailer parks"---"mobile home communities". Investors are snatching the old parks up and remodeling them into attractive communities again.
The larger idea is to purchase old run down trailer parks and build them up into affordable communities with actual amenities. Included in the plan are pools, clubhouses, and on-site maintenance (TheHustle.com).
What do you think about this idea? Would you consider living in a mobile home community instead of renting if they were re-branded in this way? Comment below!
