The BoaVida Group, owner and operator of mobile home and RV communities across the country, has acquired the Lamplighter Mobile Home Park in San Antonio for $11.25 million, adding 232 spaces to the California-based company’s portfolio.
This is the first of several acquisitions we are planning in the Lone Star state, said BoaVida’s Eli Weiner, whose company over the past year has purchased more than $150 million in properties, including 3,531 spaces in 36 parks. The rapid pace of acquisitions is continuing through the COVID-19 scare, with the company looking for fewer, but larger opportunities this year, probably 20 to 25 parks with a total value of $120 million. We are working with brokers in markets across the country, and, with the ability to move quickly, we make it easy for them and their sellers.
The BoaVida Group is the investment arm of a family of companies including BoaVida Communities, BoaVida RV Parks and Resorts, BoaVida Homes and BoaVida Funds. Together, they own and operate over 100 mobile home and recreational vehicle parks and resorts encompassing 10,000+ spaces nationwide. Founder Eli Weiner began in the industry 20 years ago and now oversees investor assets exceeding $470 million.
