RV PARK/CAMPGROUND COMPARABLE SALES


Comparable sales information is critical to any appraisal.  In our 30+ years of brokering RV parks and campgrounds, we've gathered sales information on hundreds of parks.  Many were sold by our firm, others were sold directly by the owner or by other brokers.

Included in the information we provide is the park name and location, sales price and date, gross income, seller and buyer and basic information on the property and amenities.  (See the following sample comparable sale that illustrates the type of information you receive when you order comparable sales from us.  Obviously, in the interests of confidentiality, some of the blanks are not filled in.)
