ACQUISITION

Sun Communities Acquisitions Program

Sun Communities is the nation’s premier owner and operator of Manufactured Housing Communities and RV Resorts and is recognized for having the nation’s most attractive and competitive MH Community and RV Resort Acquisition program. We became a public company in 1993 with 24 communities and since then have grown our portfolio to over 400 properties. From 2011 to present, we have successfully closed on over 300 properties with a transaction value of over $5 billion.

Your Legacy, Our Commitment

Our decisions are driven by our commitment to providing extraordinary service to our residents and guests, and our company culture reinforces this commitment. We invest significant upfront capital into the communities and resorts we acquire, and we continuously re-invest year over year to ensure we provide an exceptional resident and guest experience. We are the most active real estate developers in our industry, and we have significant expertise in projects ranging from large-scale infrastructure upgrades to ground-up community and resort development.

Your Residents, Your Employees and Your Legacy Are Protected with Us.

Unique Transaction Structures

As a publicly traded Real Estate Investment Trust on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE: SUI), Sun has unparalleled access to capital compared to our industry peers, and we are uniquely able to offer tax advantaged solutions that are beneficial for owners looking to maximize their sale proceeds and plan for the long term.

All-Cash

Sun can transact on an all-cash basis with no financing contingency on virtually any transaction regardless of size, providing owners with instant liquidity and certainty of execution.

Tax-Deferred

Sun is uniquely able to offer a deferred tax structure to mitigate the tax implications sellers often face upon the sale of their assets. Sellers can maintain a liquid position in the stock of our company while receiving partially tax-sheltered cash distributions and potential equity upside from the appreciation of Sun’s stock.

Combination

We recognize that financial objectives often differ between individual owners and partnerships. Our team can offer creative combinations of cash and stock to ensure mutually successful results for everyone.
