Marcus & Millichap closed the sale of Shady Lane Mobile Home & RV Park in El Cajon, CA

El Cajon Mobile Home Park Sells to Local Investor

Marcus & Millichap closed the sale of Shady Lane Mobile Home & RV Park, a 100% occupied, 41-site manufactured homes community on 1.65 acres at 244 Shady Ln. in El Cajon. The sale price was $4,400,000.

“Shady Lane Mobile Home & RV Park was a Watkins family generational asset,” said Dustin Wilmer, vVP investments in Marcus & Millichap’s San Diego Del Mar office. “The property had not traded hands since 1981 and this was the first time it has ever been advertised for sale.

“The new owner was in a 1031 exchange from his two mobile home & RV Parks that we recently closed in Yuma, AZ and is an El Cajon local,” Wilmer continued. “Shady Lane was a perfect fit for this buyer, and he was able to pay the price and terms acceptable to seller while closing in seven days.”

Wilmer marketed the property on behalf of the seller, a limited liability company. The buyer, a private investor, was also procured by Wilmer.
