Mobile Home Parks can be one of the most profitable business models around, but learning to scale without losing all your time can be tough. That’s the story on today’s episode of the BiggerPockets Podcast, where we sit down with Jefferson Lilly to talk about how he’s acquired 2,600+ “pads” in the past few years and the lessons he’s learned in scaling. We also discuss the ins and outs of raising private money through a “fund,” which will both fascinate and educate you, so don’t miss a moment of it. Whether you want to buy mobile home parks or not, this is one show where the lessons will stick with you for life!
