ARA's National Manufactured Housing Group specializes in the disposition of family and age-restricted manufactured housing and recreational vehicle investment properties across the country. Misunderstood and overlooked just a few years ago, this asset class has grown into a mainstream investment product for ARA's private and institutional clients. Since this form of housing is typically the most reasonably priced for residents, with very low turnover and expense ratios, the sector arguably provides the most stable cash flow of any multi housing investment product. Also, these assets tend to provide a yield that is favorable when compared to conventional multifamily product in any given market.

In order to adjust to the changing needs of our clients, ARA responded by creating a focused, experienced platform to provide representation in this market.
