There's no place like home for Hometown America. The company invests in and manages manufactured home parks throughout the US. In 20 states it owns more than 120 communities, many of which feature recreational facilities such as swimming pools, clubhouses, and basketball courts. Primarily in Florida, Hometown America operates properties under the Providence brand that are targeted toward active seniors. The company, founded in 1997, also offers home financing and insurance through agreements with third-party providers. To raise capital, Hometown America sold about 75 properties to Equity LifeStyle Properties for more than $1.4 billion in 2011.
Hometown America operates its business in nearly a dozen US states, including Arizona, California, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, and Virginia.
The company is organized into a pair of divisions: the Hometown America Family Communities and Providence Age-qualified (55+) Communities.
Hometown America has benefitted from the housing downturn as the demand for affordable housing has risen. To keep its homes portfolio marketable, it regularly makes renovations within its communities, as well as implements modern improvements in its home designs. Additionally, Hometown America offers standard floor plans as well as custom plans.
Sales and Marketing
To better serve its clients and their families, Hometown America offers a services portal on its website through which community residents can make electronic payments and gather information about insurance services.
