We're in a bit of a real estate bubble in my town. Prices are hyperinflated, IMO, with homes I'd never pay more than $130k for going for $200k.
So it occurs to me that maybe I should take advantage of this opportunity by selling my condo, and putting the cash into a mobile home for a couple years. When the market collapses, bingo!, I'll have a shipload of money ready to snap up all the good deals.
However, there's a certain stigma attached to mobile home parks. Are they truly an environment to be feared? Is living in a mobile going to really be nasty? Keep in mind I'm currently in a 900sqft condo, 2br/1ba, own entry, own garage, and neighbours I like...
Thanks in advance for any stories, advice, and suchlike!
