I’m doing something a bit different with this episode and I think you are going to really enjoy it. While I realize that the name of this podcast is “Apartment Building Investing” it’s good for us to expand our minds and see what else is out there.
Today I’m joined by Jefferson Lilly to talk about mobile home park investing!

Prior to co-founding Park Street Partners in 2013, Mr. Lilly spent seven years investing his own capital acquiring and operating his own mobile home parks.

Jefferson has been featured in The New York Times, Bloomberg Magazine, and on the 'Real Money' television show. He holds a B.A. from the University of Pennsylvania and an MBA from the Wharton School of Business.
