Allan Roth

A 1031 Exchange is a method by which a property owner exchanges one or more relinquished properties for one or more replacement properties of “like-kind”, while deferring the payment of federal income taxes and possibly some state taxes on the transaction. This tax deferred strategy accomplishes 100% deferral of capital gains indefinitely.

Allan Roth is licensed as a Certified Estate Advisor® and Certified Financial Advisor®. Allan has authored several books and continued education programs on the subject of finance, insurance and real estate.

Mr. Roth is licensed as an instructor with the Florida Department Of Business and Professional Regulation and the Society Of American College Board Of Financial Planners.

Fireside Furniture

Helsen’s Hideaway, LLC was established in September of 2001, when owners Leo and Kathy Helsen purchased the Whispering Pines Campground in Irons, MI. Many renovations and improvements were necessary to upgrade the rustic campground to a full service resort including the immediate need for picnic tables. In quest to find a safe, durable, and economical picnic table, it was discovered that there was a lack of manufacturers who built solid wood picnic table suitable for commercial use. With engineering advice, Leo designed a table that not only exceeded his quality standards for the campground but was more affordable than any other comparable product on the market. Constructed of 4×4 treated wood legs, 2×6 bench carriers, 2×10 tabletops and benches, the table proved to be extremely stable and safe. Interest in the tables quickly spread. Due to the overwhelming amount of inquires to purchase the tables, a decision was made to manufacuture and market the picnic tables and plans for development were underway.

67 Million Americans Plan To Go RVing This Year

A recent survey has found that 37% of American leisure travelers, representing 67 million, plan on taking an RV trip this year. Among leisure travelers, who are defined as any U.S. resident who has taken some type of leisure trip in the past year, the top reasons for RV travel are exploring the outdoors and having additional flexibility through remote work or school.

When A Recession Hits, Americans Go Camping

When browsing the latest news headlines, it’s nearly impossible to avoid reading about a possible recession in 2023. As companies prepare for a temporary downturn in business, others look to historical data to predict how their industry will fair. While no industry can be completely recession-proof, some will make it through unscathed, while others will thrive. So the camping industry should get ready for a busy season.


Forget A New House – It’s Time To Buy A Campground!

Multiple offers, bidding wars, well-above-asking-price contracts – we hear a lot about these in today’s residential real estate market, but business is just as booming in the campground market.

“I’ve never seen a market like this,” says Mark Whitworth, President & Associate Broker of Parks and Places, who has sold over 150 parks – with a value of $200M – over the past 12 years. The company brokered the sale of 33 campgrounds in 2021 and has already closed on 13 campgrounds in 2022.


RV sales still booming & inventory has returned

Recreational vehicles are a popular commodity here in western Colorado, particularly because of the easy access to camping and outdoor activities in the region, according to a report by The Daily Sentinel in Grand Junction, Colo. As many industries struggled throughout the course of the pandemic, RV dealers reported steady sales numbers despite the economic disruption stoked by COVID-19.


Record demand for RV's

Record demand for RVs is dramatically intensifying both the buying and selling of campgrounds and RV parks across North America, creating unprecedented business levels for real estate brokers that specialize in the private park business. Meanwhile, existing park operators and investors are scrambling to add more RV sites and other amenities to their parks to capitalize on rising market demand. (WCM) has recently documented the construction of at least 54 new campgrounds and RV parks and the addition of at least 15,500 new RV sites across the country between 2021 and early 2023.


Parks and Places, Inc. makes donation to Care Camps

It has been a busy year in the campground industry, both challenging and rewarding. The team at Parks and Places is grateful for the opportunity to help park sellers achieve their goals of transitioning out of park ownership. We are equally grateful to participate in the excitement of park buyers starting on a new venture. In this spirit of gratitude to the industry we love, Parks and Places has made a donation to Care Camps, the non-profit organization dedicated to helping kids who are fighting cancer, get to camp. Parks and Places is an established campground brokerage. We are licensed real estate brokers and agents specialized in campgrounds and RV parks for sale. We look forward to new relationships with park sellers, and the opportunity to play a small part in facilitating the dreams of those looking to purchase a park.


The year of the RV

While RV ownership has been steadily growing for decades with 62% more RV owners in 2021 than in 2001, the dramatic rise in popularity since the onset of the pandemic in early 2020 has signaled a fundamental change in the way Americans travel, vacation, and live. That rise has reached new heights in 2021, with record-breaking RV production and a strong consumer intent to buy, both stirred by one of the longest standing American traditions – a yearning to visit the great outdoors. Demand for RV units has grown month-over-month in 2021, breaking all previous wholesale shipment records. The latest projection shows the most likely year-end total for RV units built in 2021 to be 602,200 units, representing a 40% increase over the 2020 year-end total of 430,412 units. It will also be a 19% gain over the current comparable record high of 504,600 units set in 2017.


Seller Financing is available on select listings

Park sellers may offer to finance a portion of the sales price over a specified term at a specified interest rate. If the campground seller is doing seller financing on the entire amount, the buyer pays a down payment up front, to the seller directly, and continues to make payments according to the agreement with the seller.
