Show Notes

Welcome back to the Passive Mobile Home Park Investing Podcast, hosted by Andrew Keel. On this episode, Andrew talks with mobile home park syndicator and operator Bryce Robertson from Cultiv8 Collective. Andrew and Bryce dive into why the demand for affordable housing in the United States is at an all time high, they also discuss how to change the tenant base in a mobile home park as to improve the property. Bryce discusses his in depth acquisition and refinance strategies that he believes will weather most economic climates. Bryce discusses how his investment strategy has changed since he started in mobile home parks in 2015.

Bryce purchased his first mobile home park in 2015 with a net worth of -$50,000, with unseasoned credit and a mere $2,000 in the bank. Once Bryce closed that seemingly impossible deal, he knew that anything was possible and continued to grow his knowledge, experience, and wealth to become financially free within 2.5 years through mobile home park investing.
