Park Brokerage Inc. announced the sale of Fort Willcox RV Park in Willcox, Ariz., was completed Monday (April 11) for $375,000.
John Sheedy with Park Brokerage arranged the sale on behalf of the owner-operator seller while procuring the Alaska-based buyer who is a in small business investor both in Arizona and Alaska, according to the announcement from Tempe-based Park Brokerage.
Fort Willcox RV Park is a mostly snowbird RV/MH park with 12 MH spaces (six occupied) and 21 RV sites. There are an additional seven RV sites that are partially developed.
Amenities include a small clubhouse and laundry room. The park is directly off the freeway so generates nearly all of its RV income from overnight visits and snowbirds.
Fort Willcox is on a private utility system with well and septic tanks. The park was in average condition at time of sale. The property was financed by the seller as nearly all small MH/RV parks in rural areas require to ensure a sale. Four park-owned mobile homes were included in the sale.
The unnamed buyer plans on minor renovations to attract more long-term snowbird guests as well as beefing up advertising to draw overnight traffic from Interstate 10, which is less than a mile away. The park under previous ownership did not accept credit cards nor have any online reservation software which is necessary to attract a solid overnight business in modern RV parks.
Sheedy said, “Fort Willcox RV Park is a tremendous location right off Interstate 10 in a growing vitacultural area in southern Arizona. The buyer is a savvy investor and business owner who will implement some quick and easy plans to increase revenue and draw more traffic from the freeway in a low competition area.”
