UPDATED Oct. 18, 2018, 11:55 a.m.: Sunshine Village, a manufactured home community in Davie, just traded hands for $12.9 million, property records show.

SV Davie MHC LLC, a company tied to Skokie, Illinois-based Lakeshore Management, bought the 33-acre mobile home park at 13453 Southwest 5th Street for about $390,900 per acre.

Records show the company scored $24.5 million in financing from Wells Fargo Bank. A representative said Lakeshore manages the property, but holds no ownership interest.

The seller is an entity of the private real estate investment company Uniprop, based in Birmingham, Michigan. Records show the company, led by Roger Zlotoff, bought the park in 1987 for $7.2 million.

Mobile homes at Sunshine Village have a three-bedroom and two-bathroom floor plan, according to its website. Amenities include access to a community center, computer center and pool.

Mobile home parks are becoming prime targets for investors and developers. In October, real estate investor Steve Schneider paid $6.25 million for a trailer park near West Little River in Miami.

Last year, Sun Communities inked a $1.68 billion deal to acquire a large portfolio of mobile home communities, including 35 properties in Florida.
