Show Notes

Welcome back to the Passive Mobile Home Park Investing Podcast, hosted by Andrew Keel. On this episode of the Passive Mobile Home Park Investing Podcast, Andrew interviews Zach Dixon from Green River Capital Partners.

Zach Dixon bought his first rental property in 2017 and since then he and his wife, Rachel, have acquired 300+ mobile home park lots.

In this episode, Zach and Andrew dive into many golden nuggets on mobile home park investing, including: the nuances of mobile home rehabs and point out that while manufactured homes may be simply built, it doesn't mean replacing mobile home parts is a simple process. 

Zach talks about how starting small in mobile home park investing isn’t a bad thing, his theories on renovating mobile homes and why it is important to make sure that the numbers make sense.  Zach also shares with us what he feels is the most important aspect mobile home park owners should address in maintaining a mobile home.

“I bought six parks myself this year that I syndicated, but I've also invested in five passively because I like to put the money to work. If I trust the operator and I like the deal, I like that (investing passively) because it's a lot of work.” - Andrew Keel

“No matter what the market's doing, we just need the numbers to make sense to us and look at all the worst-case scenarios financially, and we'll still buy.” - Zach Dixon
