Irvine, Calif. – April 19, 2021 – Shopoff Realty Investments (“Shopoff”), a national manager of opportunistic and value-add real estate investments, announced today that the company has acquired a 611-lot, three property portfolio of manufactured housing communities in North Central Illinois. The three properties include Oak Creek Estates located in the City of Bourbonnais, Lincoln Terrace located in the City of Lincoln, and Belle Aire located in the City of Marseilles.
“The large number of lots will allow immediate economies of scale for the operations of the communities,” explained Shopoff Realty Investments President and Chief Executive Officer William Shopoff. “This is Shopoff’s second purchase of a mobile home community in recent years, and we have found this type of asset to offer tremendous untapped value as people are looking for alternatives to apartments and other more traditional multifamily housing.”

Brian Rupp, Shopoff Realty Investment’s executive vice president of Real Estate added, “The three communities are located in well-established suburban areas of Central Illinois, and will offer Shopoff a variety of potential value-add opportunities through asset improvement, ultimately benefitting not only our bottom line, but the communities’ tenants as well.”
