Almost 85,000 trailers, manufactured homes and mobile homes dot metro Phoenix.

The Phoenix area has historically had a higher percentage of households living in factory-built homes than other major cities around the West. These mobile-home parks have been a significant part of metro Phoenix’s housing market since the 1950s, particularly for retirees and low-income families.

But as house and land values rise, mobile-home parks are being increasingly pushed out of the Valley’s more urban areas. Investors are buying a record number of parks this year, according to an analysis of sales by The Arizona Republic.
