Pacific Current Partners leverages deep industry experience and relationships and specialized legal and managerial expertise to acquire properties both on and off market and to add and maintain superior value for investors and other stakeholders. PCP is still actively seeking MH and RV park acquisition opportunities, especially in the $5M to $15M range. At the same time, the company is working diligently and enthusiastically to execute asset management value-add business plans within our existing portfolio. Learn more about the team undertaking these endeavors.
Some of our value add strategies are:
ENERGY COST REDUCTION
Our business plans often include the addition of solar capacity to reduce electric utility expenses. We take advantage of the generous tax incentives currently offered in order to strengthen our returns. We have a thorough understanding of the value-add solar can bring to RV parks and communities of manufactured homes and maintain strong working relationships with solar contractors that specialize in MHRV installations.
REGULARIZATION OF USE
Our team has successfully negotiated or litigated modifications to Conditional Use Permits at several parks, including at Loomis RV Park, where we eliminated a significant transient occupancy tax that had been paid annually to the city of Loomis by the park’s prior owner. We understand such legal issues inside and out and are confident in our ability to clear up confusion surrounding zoning, permits and entitlements to bring regulators and us as owners onto the same page.
We apply our expertise to structure acquisitions so as to generate maximal tax incentives and benefits for investors.
Pacific Current Partners Invests in value add real estate opportunities in the MHRV market
Whereas many other buyers of manufactured housing communities in premium California markets have aimed to convert properties to ‘higher and better use,’ Pacific Current Partners holds a commitment to owning and operating our properties as manufactured housing communities for the long term and to realizing value by improving community experience for residents. Through off-market transactions and specific value-add expertise, we continue to grow our portfolio of mobile home and RV parks throughout the Western States.
