Zen and the Art of Real Estate Investing with Jonathan Greene

112: Building a Niche with Mobile Home Flipping with Jason Velie


Finding your real estate niche takes time and effort. However, once other real estate professionals recognize where your focus lies, your job as an investor can become much easier.

On this episode of Zen and the Art of Real Estate Investing, Jason Velie is the tricks of the trade behind mobile home flipping. Jason is the founder of Cape Fear Cash Offer, a North Carolina-based investment firm. He’s been flipping properties since 2019, and Jason is mainly focused on single- and double-wide mobile homes.

Jonathan and Jason dig into the details of flipping a mobile home, including why Jason’s first investment property was a disaster that he barely broke even on. You’ll hear the two reasons most house flippers aren’t interested in mobile homes, what he looks for when he’s buying a flip, and how Jason manages off-market negotiations and wholesale deals while the owners are still in residence. He also shares where his deals originated, why building credibility, trust, and marketing has been crucial to his business model, and Jason’s motivation for keeping real estate fun.

From an inexperienced first-time flipper to becoming an expert in the mobile home niche, Jason Velie’s story is compelling. If you have an interest in mobile homes as an asset class, this is an episode you won’t want to miss.
