    What is the Land Leasing Industry?

    Operators in this industry act as lessors of real estate that does not include permanent buildings; such real estate includes manufactured home (i.e. mobile home) sites, vacant lots and grazing land. Manufactured and mobile home sites are residential developments for the placement of detached, single-family manufactured homes that are produced off-site. These are then installed within the community on a residential site that is leased by the homeowner.
