Deer Valley Homebuilders is a HUD Code manufactured and modular home producer and is traded as an over-the-counter (OTC) stock. In recent months, it’s only periodically traded, as those who regularly follow the Daily Business News market report with a keen eye know.
The DVLY stock has had two sizable jumps in less than a week, which suggests why this deeper look at this market mover is warranted.
The firm’s website states that, “Deer Valley Homebuilders, Inc. was founded in 2004 by eight gentlemen with over 125 years of home building experience.” Conversations with the firm’s executives will reveal that their experience shows.

Beyond that basic understanding, in the case of Deer Valley Homebuilders, MHProNews’ publisher has a higher level of knowledge, having interviewed their Vice President/ General Manager and Chet Murphree, see link here (note: this link includes a 10 minute version of the shorter, edited video, posted above.)
Since the time the video above was captured and produced, several changes have taken place in the marketplace which may explain why independent manufactured and modular producers such as Deer Valley, Nobility and Sunshine Homes (among others) have seen a jump in business.

All of manufactured housing has seen a steady rise from its bottom in 2009. Based upon the most recent SAAR, an estimated 80,000 homes (+/-) could be the final new home shipment numbers for 2016.
- the rising demand in affordable homes,
- the quality, energy and money saving value that third parties
- and regulators recognize,
- plus the fact that several mainstream media outlets have touted manufactured homes as the solution to affordable homes,
all of these reasons and more may be factors sparking investor interest in a firm such as Deer Valley. It should also be noted that international interest by investors in domestic manufactured housing is growing.
There are the typical MH Industry headwinds. For example, a recent negative media report by NPR that unjustly tagged investor-owned manufactured housing communities. Without question, misunderstandings and outdated facts about manufactured homes costs the industry billions a year in potential new home sales.
But a closer look at the industry in general, and independents such as Deer Valley Homebuilders – which has built well over 7,000 homes – are reasons why the future looks bright for the factory-built home sector. The firm has retailer/builders in about 15 states, and is based in growing Guin, AL.
