Key Takeaways: 

“Society, our culture right now, we need affordable housing, especially in Washington State, there’s just not enough affordable housing. There is not enough supply for the demand that is out there for that affordable housing at the level that we’re providing it.” – Gabe Peterson 

“From the investor’s perspective, in terms of ROI and time value, headache — it is a great investment.” – Gabe Peterson 

“When you’re talking about how much effort that you have to do to maintain that and to manage it, it’s much less than a stick-built structure. That’s why I like mobile home parks and RV parks, particularly mobile homes. – Gabe Peterson 

“When they’re in a mobile home park and they own their unit, they have a little bit more respect for that is their house. They treat it accordingly, they keep it up. They have a little bit more ownership and there’s just more loyalty to the park and the structure than if it were an actual single-family or multifamily property.” – Gabe Peterson 

“In terms of how to find deals, you could join our wholesaler’s list, we mark it nationally, anything that doesn’t quite fit our criteria we assigned to somebody else, they can check that out, go to the website, real estate investing club, scroll all the way down to the bottom, it’ll say invest with us. That’s one of the ways to get on our list.”– Gabe Peterson 

“If you want to do it yourself, there are basically five things we do to generate leads. The first one is digital marketing, Google ads, Facebook ads, we run that to a website, The second one is direct mail to people. The third one is ringless voicemail. And then the fourth one is text blasting. And then cold calling is the last one.” – Gabe Peterson
