Mobile homes may seem like an affordable housing option, but large investment companies are making them less and less so.

Sadly it's completely true. I was a kid in our mobile home (They are glorified trailers) if it can be called that. We got lucky and the land was owned by our uncle, so our rent was managed. We also when we moved I think it was over 80% of the lots were bought by a single entity/group. So when we moved my uncle sold the lot and finished paying off everything he owned for the lot and home. I didn't notice how much that place costed until we moved into a duplex. Rent was more, but we still how more to spend. All utilities dropped, the feeling of the house was just so much better. I really do wish anyone living in the mobile home park can stay safe, but I've seen what these types of conditions can do to people and families.

I want so much to afford a place of my own, I feel like I've gotten to that age where it would probably benefited me. I looked into getting a mobile home. I could totally afford it and have a place to myself, but the lot rent is literally 3x the price of the mobile home. If it was the same price of the mobile home, I'd be fine, but I can't do that. Also, I can't even afford a shitty apartment where I live. There's nothing wrong with living with roommates, but it would be nice to have a place of my own that I could actually have friends or a boyfriend over (post-pandemic) and somewhere for me to study when I go back to school. BTW, fuck Dave Ramsey. When you find about the real him, he's just as bad as the people he talks shit on.

Where I live, mobile homes dominate the surrounding neighborhoods... Some simply are smart with money, and their homes are about the most beautiful little ramblers I've ever seen, but others are in legitimate poverty. This neighborhood also displays the only actual homophobia I've seen in Washington, with an openly gay man's home spray painted with the F slur, and now 3 of his cars torched...

I just bought in a park that has been family owned for over 50 years with the fourth generation coming in now. But I knew the risks. It's an assurance policy in case my mom, 100 miles away, is unable to drive. In the meantime, it will be a rental by the month. The park across the street was just bought by Cove Communities out of Phoenix. Before the sale, the lot rent was between $1100 & $1200 per month, almost double my lot rent. It literally takes two social security incomes and a part time job to live there. If one spouse dies, the other is stuck in a house that they can't sell sitting on a lot that they can't afford. It's sad. P.S. They are both 55 and over parks.

I feel like buying mobile home lots and gifting them back to the renters is now on the list of things I’d do if I had an exorbitant amount of money

You know i am always amazed by the "poor" americans shown in shows like these. The woman who couldnt afford the rent hike was driving an oversized SUV that costs her twice than a normal car would and she eats for 5 people. She in particular could certainly afford the rent given that she is already affording everything else.

A home that is not mobile is not called a mobile home. In fact i dont think you have shown even a single actually mobile home in this video.

Calling a manufactured home a mobile home may not actually be legal. These are different categories and have different legal requirements.

John and @LastWeekTonight team, what can we do to combat this issue, this is truly terrible. Can you imagine spending your time working hard to earn enough to purchase what you think is a safe place for your and your family, only to be forced out due to some greedy prick raising your lot fees? Is there any current legislation we can support to prevent this immoral practice?

Lot rent where I live is now nearly the same as renting an apartment. I am not affected by it, but I was thinking about buying a mobile home for cash to have cheap housing and found out that lot rent kicks that idea in the balls.

Actually the homes themselves don't necessarily lose value, mine didn't...depending on the economy. It's now worth twice whatI paid but I made improvements, had a nice big lot with a good view not too close to neighbors windows and kept it looking nice and repaired. Just the same, one year the appraised value was 1/4th what I paid. However, the lot rents go up every year. It's now 1/2 my income and they add new fees all the time. The park has been sold 4-5 times since I moved in. Everyone lives off the sweat of the poor.

America has become much like the Europe my grandparents left over a hundred years ago, with a hereditary aristocracy ruling over a mass of peasants. But there's no escape anymore, no place like America to which one can emigrate, work hard to build a family business and make a better life for their children.

Yeah, you might be able to buy a trailer for cheap, but then there's lot rent for life that's at least $500 or more. My uncle, a Vietnam Veteran, has a monthly veterans pension and he can't afford to buy a trailer and then pay over half of his monthly income on lot rent. And this doesn't make him a loser as our president has said. And mobile homes just have to be built on a concrete crawl space to be considered "real property". I grew up in a trailer and helped my parents put a new trailer on their lot which cost them every dime in the bank but it was an old trailer and it was falling apart. The way we treat people in trailers is beyond shit and needs to change. And yes, moving a trailer is nearly impossible because of how expensive it is and the wear and tear it takes on the home. In the long run living in a trailer is more expensive than a house. Oh, and to answer the POS Frank Rolfe, I'd burn the trailer down and good luck trying to prove I did it, it's a f'ing trailer and therefore a fire hazard in and of itself... Also, everyone and anyone who looks down on people who live in a trailer can straight kiss my ass, all day every day...

Here in the area I live in, they are building homes left and right, however, the people in the area cant afford them (200k-240k for a 2-3bed, 1-2 bath with garage). The only people buying them, are old retirees and investors looking to rent out the homes, leaving fewer and fewer options for those who actually live in the area or are from the area. And in terms of "well they should just get better paying jobs!"...The median pay range is 15usd out here, with many of the higher paying jobs going to older folks who are looking for healthcare, yet are already set up with a home (due to purchasing them in the past where they were cheaper and more affordable), and even those with degrees and experience are really only looking at a pay range of 17-25usd an hour...but even with that, the market is saturated with available candidates but not enough jobs. There are a lot of fast food jobs, but being paid min wage in the USA (7.25) even while working overtime, is not going to net you enough to afford a home in the above price range..Even with the lower interest rate that is going around out here (2.3-2.7%).

I worked for Clayton homes before and they are the worst to deal with. The mark up on the homes is so high plus the use only one lender that they also own. I sold a single wide to a guy that someone was shot and killed in the master bedroom. He put 3,000 down and putting up his land for a down payment. After it was sold to him the manager treated him like crap. The bank that they own gave them a very high interest rate and by the time he pays it off he will be paying over a 100k for that single wide. I just couldn’t do it after that experience.

hypothetically speaking, how legal would it be to found a limited liability company, invest just enough money to buy the homes in a mobile home park, rip out anything of value such as copper plumbing and electrical wiring, use the money from selling the scrap to pay any debts except rent on the lots & declare bankruptcy so that the owner of the land can only seize the uninhabitable mobile homes & pay out the nose to either fix the homes, or tear them down the rest of the way & use the land for something else?

Yeah, it was tough when I was looking to buy a house and so many of the “affordable” homes were manufactured ones. Part of why I wanted to buy a house instead of renting was to start building equity. And a manufactured home just doesn’t do that. I was so lucky to find a real house I could afford. It’s small, but it’s actually holding equity ^^
