Discover Why Florida Resident-Owned Communities

Are Returning to Land Lease Communities

The reasons – and benefits – may surprise you!

Is Your Co-op Thriving?


In the 1980s and 1990s, many 55+ senior mobile home parks converted from land-lease communities to resident-owned co-ops. However, over the past 30 years, countless co-op boards have faced serious challenges. Have rising debt and insurance costs, hurricane risks, management disagreements, and rental vacancies prevented your community from updating amenities or making necessary repairs, like paving roads and fixing infrastructure? Can you imagine solving these problems without passing along the costs to the residents?


How Are Your Personal Finances?


Many seniors thought they had enough saved for retirement. However, inflation has surged in the past two years. The costs of medications, food, and other necessities have all increased, leaving many retirees financially strained. Can you imagine the relief of having a life-changing sum of money added to your retirement savings, along with lifetime guarantees that would virtually freeze your cost of living?


Want to know how MHM Communities can benefit you and the community?


We can enhance your community by upgrading amenities and repairing infrastructure at no cost to you. Plus, we can unlock the equity of your co-op shares without requiring you to sell your home, relocate, or sacrifice your quality of life. Additionally, we can secure your future in the community with lifetime leases guaranteed by the state of Florida.

  • The payout option that you choose may allow you to live rent-free for life.

  • You will receive a large upfront cash payout, boosting your retirement nest egg.

  • Most payout options include "not to exceed" amounts written into the lease.

  • You will feel secure with a lifetime lease, guaranteeing your place in the community.

  • Feel confident knowing the community will remain a 55+ community, guaranteed in writing.

  • Sale contracts, rules, regulations, and prospectuses are co-created by MHM and the Shareholders Board and filed with the Florida DBPR (Department of Business and Professional Regulation) to ensure they cannot be changed by MHM later.

The Benefits of a Lifetime Lease

At MHM Communities, our goal is to enhance your quality of life. Our payouts are often large enough to allow shareholders to remain in their current homes rent-free for life while enjoying new amenities and renovated infrastructure, but it is the lifetime lease that is the greatest value within the transaction.

Our mission is to enhance residents' quality of life through:


Thriving Community Life:

Your HOA will receive a monthly budget for social events, dances, parties, and more. Residents who socialize with neighbors are usually happier, live longer, and remain within the community longer and a lower turnover rate is good for business.

Modern Infrastructure:

Roads are often repaved, and sewer and storm drainage issues are repaired.


Luxury Look and Feel:

Significant remodeling, high-end landscaping and new amenities tailored to your community’s needs make the community more desirable and attractive to the current residents and new buyers. With all the improvements, homeowners will see an average 17% increase in home values.


Improved Security:

Gated entrances, climb-resistant fencing, and day/night security cameras help secure the neighborhood giving the residents peace of mind.


Upgraded Telecommunications:

High-speed fiber optics improve TV and internet quality at reduced costs.
