Welcome to episode 21 of the Park Street Partners’ Mobile Home Park Investors podcast, hosted by Jefferson Lilly and Brad Johnson. Today, Jefferson and Brad talk about the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI), which is the mobile home park industry’s chief nationwide lobbying group. They work to fend off government regulation that's “suppose to help” the industry and try to get some helpful regulations in place. MHI holds the two big annual meetings in the mobile home park industry. Tune in to hear the highlights of the MHI meeting in Las Vegas and learn more insider tips on doing business in the mobile home park industry.
