Mobile home prices are rising in Las Vegas with no signs of slowing down.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, the Las Vegas housing market has been rapidly growing. With new buyers flooding the market inventory in the market is at an all-time low. The cost of renting land in mobile home parks has doubled and is continuing to rise. During the course of the pandemic, the price of the average mobile home has increased by over 50%.
The high prices of residential and suburban neighborhoods combined with the shortage of affordable housing in the Las Vegas area have pushed more and more residents to more affordable mobile home parks. With the increase in costs of mobile homes, these parks are becoming unaffordable as well. The residents of the parks may own their homes but do not own the lots that they reside on. Residents have reported between 10-25% increases in their rent for the land that their mobile homes occupy in just the last year.
