Welcome to Episode 83 of the Mobile Home Park Investors podcast, hosted by Jefferson Lilly and Brad Johnson, with the Park Street Partners. Jefferson sits down to do a quick recap of the 2017 National Communities Council that he attended in Chicago. It’s a great place to get industry-related news as well as to network!
[1:35] Around 400-500 attendees showed up at this years NCC trade show.
[3:00] Hopefully we will see less regulation in the next couple of years.
[5:15] Jefferson attended a seminar about using technology tools (ManageAmerica) to better manage your mobile home park.
[7:25] ManageAmerica, like RentManager, works with cheque scanners!
[9:55] There was a panel on how you can better manage natural disasters.
[12:25] If you want to help the victims of East Texas, please use a reputable charity that’s helping those in need.
[14:55] It is estimated that Florida has had over 2.5m claims for assistance, and 1/3 of those have been served. 2/3 of people who have been hit by hurricane Irma are still waiting for government assistance.
[15:50] The government (Florida and Texas) is being extremely incentive towards mobile home tenants who have recently been knocked on their backs from the hurricane.
[18:25] Encourage your residents to get flood insurance. Most mobile home insurance plans don’t come with flooding.
[19:00] Jefferson recommends you attend next year’s NCC event, especially for networking!
