In fact, I’d rather get my income directly from housing (or my own business) than from the stock market (REIT is a decent compromise). So far I have thought about buying an N-plex and living in one of the units. However, I just found out that it is possible purchase mobile homes and/or trailer parks.
The prices range from a few hundredk (which is my kind of money) to several million dollars which I will set aside for another life or at least another decade.
You could absolutely imagine buying an RV park and adapting it to small houses; probably on wheels, but a mixed park might allow for tiny houses built on larger trailers like mobile homes; I have not seen any design of the latter type.
Also, I think it would be possible for the owner to build the little house on the site and have a lot of help once we reach critical mass. No doubt he would learn to build them.
The only thing I don’t know is whether tiny homeowners would prefer to reside in someone’s backyard or on a piece of land or whether they would rather be in a park with other tiny house dwellers.
I’m also wondering if limits can be put on 40 foot diesels? Also, where to put it. Everything can’t be in Portland, Oregon .
I would reserve space for garden plots and plant trees (not pines!) on the south side of the sites to shade the houses in the summer. We would have a dog park. I wonder what else could be done.
