Show Notes

Welcome back to the Passive Mobile Home Park Investing Podcast, hosted by Andrew Keel. In this episode of the Passive Mobile Home Park Investing Podcast our host Andrew Keel interviews Tracy Renna, the Founder and CEO of MH Title Brokers.

One of the most frustrating things in the mobile home park investing realm is trying to get lost mobile home titles. Getting these mobile home titles fixed and in the correct name of the new owner is where Tracy Renna and MH Title brokers can assist.

Tracy Renna founded MH Title Brokers over 4 years ago to specialize in the organization and investigative work required to identify and retrieve mobile home titles. Tracy and her team engage with local DMV offices, legal institutions, and title companies, saving mobile home park owners and investors time and frustration.

In this episode, Andrew and Tracy dive into the topic of sourcing abandoned Mobile Home Titles, not the most glamorous topic, but one that can be an expensive one. They discuss Tracy’s journey and how she founded MH Title Brokers, what you need to know about sourcing abandoned mobile home titles, risks of owning a mobile home, what to do when you can’t find a title or the previous owner of a manufactured home, selling a mobile home without a title, and which states are the most difficult to deal with when it comes to issuing new Mobile Home Titles.

Join us as Tracy Renna shares her wisdom and experience on the in’s and out’s of sourcing abandoned Mobile Home titles in this episode.
