When Eloise Mickelsen moved to Halcyon Mobile Home Park 16 years ago, she did so with the understanding that the park wouldn’t be sold.
The previous owner meant for Halcyon to remain a mobile home park for seniors, Mickelsen said.
But manufactured home ownership comes with risks. A household might spend thousands on a manufactured home, placed on land they don’t own, only to see their investment evaporate in the face of a lucrative offer from a developer.
Mickelsen lived in Halcyon for 16 years before the notice of a potential sale came to her door.
