I've been in the Factory Built Housing Industry for 3 decades. I'm presently active as a Manufactured/Modular Home Dealer and Developer, General & Manufactured Home Contractor, Real Estate Broker, property manager and Investor.
I am also an expert witness, a former Industry expert with the California State Contractors License Board. I've also sat on many committees for rewriting the tests given to individuals wishing to qualify for the C-47 manufactured housing contractors license as well as a consultant and troubleshooter for several Attorney's General, District Attorneys offices and some local TV and Radio media consumer advocate programs.
I see a lot of upside potential for Factory Built "Senior Communities" if done properly. Would you be developing a rent/lease community or Resident owned Community i.e. Planned Unit Development (PUD)? Please feel free to contact me in confidence at email@example.com or my cell at 760 815-6977.
There is an abundance of information I would be happy to share with you but not on a publicly open forum.
Please feel free to log onto any of our very user friendly websites for further information.
As long as it's done right, it should get some attention. After all there are so many senior communities of such type homes in retirement communities in Florida and elsewhere. Perhaps if something like that was built here, they may stay instead of moving out of state.
