Property Description

Lakeview Estates is a great opportunity to get into the Mobile Home Park Business.
Great Value Add MHP in Emporia KS near Emporia State University (5500 students, 700 staff.) Current owner purchased in conjunction with a larger park in town and has done the heavy clean-up of the park to get it ready for a new owner who can start rehabbing existing trailers and moving in new trailers. Priced to sell. Open to Owner financing with STRONG down payment.
The owner purchased the park and immediately spent significant time and money cleaning out trash, debris and abandoned trailers, extensive landscaping and tree work, multiple electrical upgrades and fixing water leaks, survey completed and sewer line jetting. Much of the initial heavy work has been done that we complete when we buy a park.
New owner should expect to finish either rehab or tear out of vacant trailers (3), 1-2 we believe are salvageable or can be sold as handyman specials. Rents could be raised as they are $20-25 under market for pad rent. Demand is high in this market and the new owner would do well to move in trailers as there is both demand for park owned rentals and to sell homes to new tenants. One of the best located parks in town. Adjacent railroad tracks are supply tracks for Bungee seed and are not normal commercial lines (i.e. they are for moving rail cars to and from the plant not for through trains.) The mobile home park is surrounded by single family homes, some light commercial to the south and a City Park to the north. Currently the mobile home Park is the “ugliest house on the block” and as it is improved, will benefit greatly by the desirable surrounding area.
