I believe that the first 10 people who make a business of moving Washington State foreclosures to Alaska will all QUICKLY become millionaires.
KH has the best idea I’ve ever seen on this board. Congratulations and thanks for sharing this with us.
I even saw a motel just outside of Fairbanks made entirely from mobile homes, back during the late 50’s. It’s probably still there today. Two of my cousins followed Johnny Horton’s advice and went north to Alaska while in their twenties. They both were beginning real estate investors. They both became millionaires while still in their twenties. The same opportunities are STILL there today. Nothing new under the sun.
There are many free mobiles along the Alaska (Alcan) hiway. All you gotta do is run a steel cable 2,000 feet down the hillside and pull them back up and rehab them???. Note don’t tote, wobbly boxes on snow. Many folks tried. Many folks died. Chilling results I’d say. Hiway markers along the Alcan hiway marking where each of hundreds of people died, bring safety to the forefront of your mind.
I would start with single-wides because I suspect that the lower towing costs will results in a much higher % of profits. I bet 14 wides would be great. In fact I bet your toter can’t even reach Fairbanks or Anchorage without having a half a dozen motoritsts honking frantically and flagging the driver down with cash offers for your 14 wides. Think I’m kidding? No, not this time.
Check first, but I’m sure they would be welcomed with opened arms on private land, everywhere in Alaska, what with the housing shortage 'n all. Its the same shortage that I noticed back in 1959 and STILL unfilled. Investors haven’t changed either. They haven’t found this opportunity, and never will. They are all still looking for an EASY way to get rich quick. Oh, well, you just can’t reach some folks. Remember my old post when I mentioned that a friend had seen a big warning sticker on baby strollers, that said Caution: Remove child before folding? Well, I think we are talking about some of the same folks that that warning was indended for. :~0
How to get rich? Find a need and fill it. Henry J. Kaiser— Kaiser Steel, Kaiser Aluminum, Kaiser Cement, Kaiser Hospitals, Kaiser Automobies, (well you can’t win them all) :~0.
Moving mobile homes is an absolutly PERFECT opportunity to become a millionaire because of the difficulty, time, cost, and distance to move them. That is precisely WHY there is STILL a shortage of housing there, even after 43 years. Funny how hard work discourages competition. Most people are too lazy and set in their ways to take advantage of REAL opportunities. Remember what we were discussing recently concerning doing the same things over and over again but hoping for different results? We called it insanity, didn’t we.
Folks don’t look for an easy opportunity. Look for a hard one, with good profits, then you won’t have any competition. When there is a crying need and no competition in filling it, guess who makes the rules and sets the prices? Talk about being in the catbird seat! The Humane Society will probalbly be watching you if you do this.
Maybe I should mention that you need to look for snow load roofs, extra insulation and double windows on the mobiles you take up North and check with the Alaska building codes BEFORE you buy and move one up there to be sure it will comply with local codes. If other people have done I bet you can too.
There should be a sticker hidden in the master bedroom closet or someother equally clever place, to tell you what climate zone the mobile has been manufactured for.
I just happen to know of other similar situations that are currently making SEVERAL millionaires, but I have been sworn to secrecy, due to having inside information.
KH you’ve got the hottest play in the game. GO FOR IT, post haste.
Don’t worry about the competition. 10,000 people may read this board but I’ll be surprised if even one other person jumps on this opportunity to get rich quick. Yes such opportunities DO exist. Its takers, that often don’t exist. Everyone wants to be rich but few are willing to work for it.
Ok, all you go-getters, its time to change hats. This is the second, almost, instant, millionaire-making idea to appear on this board today.
Don’t forget where to fax the big Macs.
