Is There Room For DGX?
The mobile home park industry has adopted weak guidelines of ratings – none of which is embraced in a cohesive manner – and mobile home parks basically fall into two camps: 1) upscale retirement communities and 2) everything else. Long gone is the star system in any reasonable application. But is a two-party system enough? In this Mobile Home Mastery podcast we’re going to discuss the concept that maybe there should be a third standard category, similar to the rise of the Dollar General DGX model, and what the attributes might be to fall into this category.
Are Residents Ruled By Love Or Fear?
The media will tell you that mobile home park residents are “trapped” in their homes. The truth is the exact opposite. The bonds that produce an average tenancy of 14 years are forged by the love of the product, not boundaries. In this Mobile Home Park Mastery podcast we’re going to explore the truth behind the myth that customers are “chained to the Waffle House booths”, and explore what makes them happy residents for decades.
The Stages on the Rocket of Park Turnarounds
The recent spaceflight of William Shatner – broadcast live – demonstrated how mobile home park turnarounds work. Just like a rocket it comes in a series of stages with tangible transitions. In this Mobile Home Park Mastery podcast episode we’re going to discuss what these stages are, how they work, and what the positive gains are to residents from these boosts in their quality of life.
Successfully Using RVs To Fill Vacant Mobile Home Lots
At the same time that mobile home prices from the manufacturers have risen to the highest levels in American history, RV ownership in the U.S. has also hit record levels and many of these owners are not using them for travel but for permanent residency. In this episode of Mobile Home Park Mastery, we’re going to discuss the potential to fill vacant mobile home park lots with RVs, and why that’s going to be one of the big factors in filling up the remaining vacant lots in communities from coast to coast.
The Park Owner’s Winter Survival Guide
Each season has its own challenges when you own a mobile home park, and winter is no different. With the arrival of the holiday season comes new responsibilities and strategies to make your community in good operational condition. In this Mobile Home Park Mastery podcast we’re going to review the items all park owners need to accomplish before the snow begins to fall.
Hot Markets In The Hard Infrastructure Bill
The “hard infrastructure bill” has now been signed into law. This bill is very geographic-specific, and many people have not through who the winners and losers actually. Some may be surprised at the new hot markets created by this democratic initiative. In this Mobile Home Park Mastery podcast we’re going to take a look at who the big beneficiaries are of this bill and why this does a lot to bring new luster to the “rust belt” and “flyover” states.
After reading a few posts on BiggerPockets written by Frank Rolfe, I decided to check out the website which then led me to the Podcast. Outside of John Maxwell, I’m not sure I know another human who shares his craft with the world like Frank Rolfe. He is an excellent communicator, he shares his depth of knowledge in such a tangible way and, connects with the listener /investor like an Uncle or Brother sharing wisdom. I have become an avid listener on a daily basis. It’s like having a morning cup of coffee with your mentor, you just know you’re gonna get some good insight.
Great podcast with valuable information!
Thanks for making it easy to learn and interesting. Each episode definitely shows your valuable experience that you can’t read from a book. I’ve been following for a few years and have yet to pull the trigger on a MHP. Hoping I can buy one on Texas this year if there’s a good starter MHP.
Stumbled across this podcast -listened to a few so far and living the info. Excited to learn more and explore posiibilities!
