Arrow Make More Money With Mobile Homes

Does the myth that mobile homes depreciate in value keep you from investing in them? Well, they do lose value in a park, on a rented lot. Mobile homes with real estate, however, are an entirely different investment.

My mobile home doubled in value in the twelve years I lived in it. The home deteriorated a little (don't all houses?), but the value of the land continued to rise. Also, by renting rooms, I took in far more money from my home than it originally cost, and I was living in it!

this is not a myth mobile homes depreciate no matter where they are .. they are stamped with a VIN like cars . sure land will appreciate . but it woudl appreciate more if it had a Single family detached dwelling on it ..

Mobile homes as investments are rediculous

I am fairly new to investing and I have heard the same thing about mobile homes not being a good investment. Since they are basically driving off a lot just like a car they depreciate as soon as they hit the street. No matter what type of land they are on they are not a money maker.

I just couldn't make myself invest in a mobile home. Like was said, they depreciate in value the moment they leave the lot and their value just doesn't rise.

You'd just about be better off to invest in the land itself, hold onto it for a little while and then resell it for a decent profit.

I can't imagine considering a mobile home a good investment. For the reasons stated above and more.

I was never interested in mobile homes. But now hearing this, my mind has changed because last week, I was given an offer to invest in one. Any advice on how to check the condition of a mobile house?
