So where were you during the great Recession? When housing values plummeted? I know because I bought 4 of them at 1/2 price.

Money isn't lost or made until you sell. If he bought prior to the recession but did not sell than all is good. I also bought during that time and did not sell.

If that's the only reason you want a MH, buy the condo. Also, at 50 to 100 for a 40', you are likely buying a 10 to 15 year old coach with all the associated repair and maintenance costs.

It depend on which "great recession" you are referring. In the true "great depression" of 1929-39 I wasn't yet born. In the 1970-80' Carter days of double digit inflation and gas lines around the block I was working full time and buying a new rental house every year.

By the the late 80's we had fourteen properties of our own, two in a limited partnership we formed with another couple and two properties we managed for owners out of the area - in addition to both having full time jobs. In the 90's we exchanged 13 of our properties for a 148 unit, 24 acres, 39 building apartment complex.

In the 2000s we sold the apartments and retired, just as the democrat Community Reinvestment Act was forcing lenders to make unbacked, unwise, mortgages to NINGA borrowers (No Income No job, no Assets) which resulted in massive defaults and repossessions and the latest market depression.

Why not look in to a large 5 th wheel and park in a CG near them. Why pay for an engine you are not going to use!

So do you really think I misspoke and called the great depression the great recession?
It's great that you had Partners and others to RELY on for your fortunes. I kept it simple: just me. I put my 30 yrs into the system and retired at 45 and was able to participate FULL time in Raising my child and didn't miss one game of his. I spent lots of time with my child in his most important formative yrs, not many can boast that. To me that's priceless.
So we can go on with this P---- measuring contest, or just accept that it's not always wise to make blanket statements. Sometimes real estate DOES depreciate.

RightUR is correct about not all houses appreciate. It depends on a lot of factors.

My Uncle bought a small home (3 BR, 1BA, single carport, fenced yard, etc.) in 1987 for $68,000. He lived in it for 25 yrs. and passed at the age of 85 yrs. old.

As Executor of his Estate, I sold his home 7 years after his death in 2019 for $50,000. The neighborhood changed over the years and the house was just maintained, not renovated/remodeled over the years. The purchaser bought it for a rental.

Safe travels,
Mark

it's time to take a survey on how many people read the full post!!

Folks, if you haven't been paying attention the grandchild being referenced had yet to be born when this post was started. It was a girl by-the-way and she is about to graduate from college. Jeff and Sharon are very proud of the way things turned out....

Just having fun while I enjoy my morning coffee....

LOL.. it's all good. And, in the short term, RE can go down like anything else. It's the folks that can't wait a spell for things to come out of the downturn that end up losing some cash. And that's a bad thing.

On the good side of the ledger, our "still in the oven" grandson, Jack Thomas Marshall, is in the near 100th percentile in size, heads down, and ready for his grand entrance - due date Nov 11th!
