Trading Spaces: Jellystone Park Franchisee Shifts from Multi-Family Housing to Family Camping
After successfully investing in a large number of mobile home and other multi-family properties for more than a decade, a few years ago Sean Vidrine noticed the industry was changing, and not for the better. “Mobile homes were falling out of favor with cities, finding properties at a decent capitalization rate was getting harder, and the upside was becoming much more limited,” the Lake Charles, Louisiana investor said.
Then, he was presented with an opportunity to buy a family campground and RV resort in Mississippi. “I knew nothing about campgrounds until then, but the idea intrigued me. After doing a lot of research, I quickly saw how much more upside there is.” Three years later, Sean is completely out of the multi-family business. He and his business partners at Four Points RV Resorts own four camp-resorts, including three Jellystone Park franchises.
