50 States Manufactured Home Production, Shipments-Dec 2022 Report for Oct 2022, plus Fresh Census Info Yield Broad Manufactured Housing vs. Site Built Insights; plus MHVille REITs, Stocks Update


The Institute for Building Technology & Safety‎ (IBTS) is contracted by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to gather the data on production and shipments by state for HUD Code manufactured homes. So IBTS’ data is essentially HUD’s official data. Additionally, information obtained by MHProNews from the U.S. Census Bureau will provide a wealth of information useful for marketing, investing, public policy and advocacy purposes. These item will then be accompanied by a focused MHProNews analysis and commentary.

1). Official HUD Code Manufactured Home Production/Shipments Data for 10.1 to 10.31.2022.

MHProNews note: SW means “single wide” or more aptly, ‘single section’ manufactured home. MW means “multi-wide” or more aptly a multsectional manufactured home.

Additional Information with More MHProNews Analysis in Brief

What too few industry professionals and numbers of association have paid public (published) attention to is the dramatic upswing in manufactured home shipments in 2021 into land-lease manufactured home communities.  See the highlighted datapoint from the Census Bureau, shown above as ranking at 51 percent.

  • A) Depending on the community operator involved, some are buying homes for mainly rental property purposes.
  • B) Other community owner/operators are more apt to be buying manufactured homes to fill a site where the home has/would be sold to a future manufactured homeowner.
  • C) Publicly traded examples of the above are UMH Properties and Manufactured Housing Properties for scenario A, and Equity LifeStyle Properties for B.
  • D) Each of those named publicly traded firms are members of the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI), which has arguably aptly earned the nickname the Monopolistic Housing Institute (MHI) because they seem to be dominated by consolidators of the various sectors of the manufactured housing industry.  For evidence of that claim, a look at the investor pitch decks for various MHI member firms often makes that point in a subtle to bold manner. See Flagship Communities as an example. Earnings calls by publicly traded firms also reveals remarks that point to that assertion.
Several publicly traded firms are making similar statements, but this one happens to have a partner and co-founder a prior MHI chairman, and still MHI board member, Nathan Smith.
A publicly traded company with sufficient financial capacity, such as Skyline Champion, might well make a higher rate of return by developing a new plant that buying an existing one. In the community sector, a remark made by Sun Communities Gary Shiffman during an earnings call demonstrates the point that a better ‘rate of return’ can be earned for investors by developing a new community vs. buying an existing one. Such remarks ought to beg serious investigations as to the possible antitrust implications or possible SEC violations, among other legal risks. See the two reports linked below for more insights.

But there are numerous questions that this surge in shipments into land lease communities begs for questions and candid answers.  For instance, were land lease communities often prioritized over street retailers in 2021? When earnings calls and other remarks/indicators reflect that publicly traded producers of manufactured homes have said that there is a high demand from communities which may buy similar homes in larger quantities that could allow for a ‘run’ of a specific floorplan, there are several possible motivations for producers to possibly unjustly favor a larger customer over a smaller one. But to the degree that may have occurred, such behavior has consequences too.

For instance, retail customers who are going onto private property may get put off for weeks or months longer than would otherwise be the case. Such retail clients are likely to have increased frustration and thus higher levels of dissatisfaction with sellers, i.e.: street retailers. While some of that may blow back on the factory supplying an independent, the brunt could fall on the retailer (a.k.a. ‘dealer’).  That retail’s profits are being delayed. Their floorplan limits may get stretched. Some retailers in frustration may sell out or close up and retire.

Because publicly traded firms, and other HUD Code manufactured home producers, often have their own retail arms (vertical integration that parallels serving independent retailers), the resale value of a retail center may be diminished. Clayton Homes has for some time offered certain independents a program that essentially converted an independent into a corporate owned center. In those cases, the former independent retailer turned-Clayton sales center could, per Clayton’s pitch, reduce their risk while still offering their ‘general manager’ (the former store owner) opportunities to make a good income with less personal financial risk.

This quilt work of various interests, pressures, and methodologies that are operating in MHVille all lead to pressure that reduces the number of independent sellers of HUD Code manufactured housing.  While the ‘slack’ may be picked up – for now – by communities, as communities move toward capacity in their occupancy, a production ‘wall’ may be hit in the foreseeable future. MHProNews raised that concern at the last MHI meeting attended in 2017. It is increasingly visible in the emerging data.


To the extent that investors in publicly traded companies are not being told about such risks of an approaching downturn, public firms are arguably shortchanging investors in potentially multiple ways.  A kind of reverse example of that is Legacy Housing, which has openly warned investors and those who read/listen to their statements that a ‘place to put’ challenge is upon the industry. Legacy Housing has responded to that place to put challenge by developing their own properties where Legacy Housing products can be placed for sale and/or other marketing/financial opportunities, such as possible leasing.


Winners and losers inevitably emerge from this pattern. To the extent that MHI staff and board leaders could help the industry navigate these issues, but do not do so, they are increasing their respective risks for failing to fulfill their fiduciary responsibilities to all members. But because this is subtle and there are numbers of distractions, independents may or may not completely grasp the risk factors that are growing. Meanwhile, more producing companies have embraced some level of vertical integration – i.e.: their own company owned sales centers – that may parallel the sales made by independents.

The Census Bureau data posted above clearly shows that manufactured home production is only operating at about 9 to 10 percent of single-family housing starts in recent years. But at various times in the past, manufactured housing achieved far higher levels of new housing starts in market share. See figure 2 below, produced by the National Association of Realtors Scholastica “Gay” Cororaton, CBE.


The bottom lines? There are candidly numbers of possible takeaways. They are explored in reports linked herein.

But what is certain is that the manufactured housing industry is operating at far below its actual potential to meet the needs of the growing affordable housing crisis. When some 9 million younger individuals moved back into their parents’ home in 2022 alone, due in large part to a lack of affordable housing, that spells both problems and opportunities.

Unfortunately, at this point, there is little indication that MHI intends to do its part to maximize those opportunities. Nor are there clear signals by some of their dominating brands that they want to see the commonsense changes to be made which might alleviate the risks described while potentially maximizing rewards. That implies that risks for investors, smaller companies, and potentially MHI itself are all rising. See the various linked reports to learn more.

Is it any wonder that MHI is – when compared to MHARR – a revolving door for higher level staffers? Perhaps as MHI staffers begin to realize the potential legal, career, and reputational risks, is it a surprise that they exit to seek other opportunities? Of if MHI’s corporate leaders may sense less than total support for unstated agendas in a staffer, is it a surprise that they exit some of them to try to find more loyalty to their often self-contradictory behaviors? https://www.manufacturedhomelivingnews.com/strommen-felony-conspiracy-case-monopolization-of-affordable-manufactured-housing-and-manufactured-home-communities-rube-goldberg-machine-of-human-suff/
