Be cautious about going the mobile home park route as a solution for senior housing. They are affordable, perhaps, but if high winds and tornadoes are a factor in your weather, beware because they are not safe.

If you do consider a mobile home, you have to look at the land they sit on to determine whether they are a good answer for seniors, and this will vary from one mobile home park to another.

I don't know what the laws are in MN, but in most states, if there is a mobile park owner who controls the land and the residents rent a spot or a lot for their mobile home, the owner, in effect a landlord, can sell the land out from under the residents leaving them little or no recourse.

This exact scenario recently happened in Orlando, Florida when the county sought a mobile home park's land for expansion of a high school. The result: about 100 displaced long-time residents, some lived there as long as 20 years, all seniors, faced moving into more expensive housing and were forced to uproot their lives, a move they did not ever anticipate they would have to make at their age.

The good thing about your information is that it is explicit enough for students to grasp. Thanks for your efforts in spreading academic knowledge.


I had got a desire to start my own company, but I did not have enough amount of money to do that. Thank heaven my close dude proposed to take the business loans. Thus I received the college loan and realized my old dream.
