126: Why are Manufactured Homes Superior? - Glenn Stromberg

Glenn manages a fund with a niche he likes to call ‘the best-kept secret in real estate. As opposed to traditional homes, manufactured homes are built in an assembly line in one location and then delivered to another location and installed. The homes then gain value over time. You won’t believe the returns they are getting and they’ve been at it since 2006.  This has every feel of a niche that is made for income investors to prosper. Glenn “G-Pop” Stromberg dives in with Big Mike in what has made this so successful. They share market insights, refinancing perspectives and in typical Big Mike fashion, he breaks down the numbers for your viewing pleasure! High-level stuff, as usual. Watch it now!
