Consumers ‘Fears for the Future’-Mortgage Payments Surge Since 2021, Buyers Get Priced Out–Conventional Housing Woes are Manufactured Home Pro Opportunities; plus MHVille REITs, Stocks Update


It is axiomatic that manufactured housing is more affordable than conventional housing. Conventional housing – be it existing home resales or new conventional construction – prices are soaring, and interest rates are roaring to levels not seen since nearly 2001, per the right-leaning Epoch Times. Those sobering facts are a recipe to attract homebuyers priced out of conventional housing to become the next candidates for the sale of more residential style as well as more shade and shelter types of manufactured housing. Indeed, manufactured housing sales are continuing to rise even as conventional housing construction and resales have encountered headwinds for much of 2022.

Mortgage payments surge 50% since last year

Homebuyers get priced out

As mortgage rates climbed, typical monthly mortgage payments on existing single-family homes with a 20% down payment skyrocketed by 50% in the third quarter of 2022 compared to the year prior, according to data released by the National Association of Realtors (NAR) Thursday.

Monthly mortgage payments under the above conditions climbed to $1,840 between July and September, and the median price of existing single-family homes climbed 8.6% on an annual basis to $398,500, according to the NAR. This monthly payment represented 25% of a family’s monthly income, and was up dramatically from the same time last year, when the typical payment was just $1,226, roughly 17.2% of a family’s income.

First-time buyers in the third quarter spent nearly 38% of their family income on mortgage payments, blowing past the 25% threshold that the NAR considers to be the maximum affordable, the NAR reported. Mortgage applications were down 41% the week ending Nov. 4, compared to the same week the year prior, the Mortgage Bankers Association reported Nov. 9.

“Much lower buying capacity has slowed home price growth and the trend will continue until mortgage rates stop rising,” NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun said in the press release. “The median income needed to buy a typical home has risen to $88,300 – that’s almost $40,000 more than it was prior to the start of the pandemic, back in 2019.”

Of the 10 most expensive housing markets in the country, fully half were located in California, according to the NAR. Despite this, price increases in the South and Northeast surpassed the 7.4% price increase seen across the West, at 11.9% and 8.2% respectively, while the Midwest enjoyed a noticeably below-average price hike of 6.6%.

“The more expensive markets on the West Coast will likely experience some price declines following this rapid price appreciation, which is the result of many years of limited home building,” Yun said. “The Midwest, with relatively affordable home prices, will likely continue to see price gains as incomes and rents both rise.”

The 30-year fixed mortgage rate was 7.08% as of Nov. 10, according to Freddie Mac, continuing a trend that has put downward pressure on housing sales. While prices have been rapidly declining to compensate, they could plunge by as much as 20%, according to chief economist of Pantheon Macroeconomics, Ian Shepherdson.

Additional Information with More MHProNews Analysis and Commentary

A series of tweets by the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) sheds light on issues that may not otherwise be found in MHVille. Note that there may be a connection between suicides among conventional housing tradespeople and being a vet, which in the post-Middle Eastern war era has witnessed a spike in suicides too.

By contrast, the most recent post by the Manufactured Housing Institute at #MHIUpdate on Twitter is dated September 14, 2020.


Fannie Mae’s Home Purchase Sentiment Index (HPSI) Plummets to New All-Time Low – Consumer Confidence in Housing Drop Continues, Conv vs. Manufactured Homes Trends; plus MHVille REITs, Stocks Update


Mildly like the NAHB, MHProNews plus MHLivingNews both took a public stand for pro-white hat businesses, and the publics’ need to make a real pivot away from destructive policies that are harming millions of would-be homebuyers, renters, and millions of existing homeowners – each in a distinctive way.


Despite Biden Housing Promises, CNN, NAR Say 1st Time Homebuyers Fall to ‘All Time Low’ – MHI Input – Unpacking Info for MHVille Advocates & Pros; plus Sunday MHProNews Weekly MH Reports Recap

Over a decade has elapsed since Kevin Clayton, CEO of Berkshire Hathaway owned Clayton Homes said that a national campaign was poised for promoting the good news about manufactured homes. What happened to that pledge?


It’s not that the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) hasn’t spent money and years of talking about a national image campaign to do for manufactured housing what the GoRVing campaign did for the recreational vehicle industry. But what ought to be the focus is what happened after all of the talk and promises?

Terry’s comment begs the question. Why is it that MHI, Berkshire Hathaway or other giants involved at MHI failing to properly promote manufactured housing? Decio’s company and Skyline Champion today are MHI member brands.


At the time of this graphic, Berkshire owned dozens of newspapers. They have since been sold, but Berkshire reportedly holds the paper on the note and lease on the real estate for those newspapers. Per ABC News: “Berkshire Hathaway is providing about $576 million in long-term, 9% financing to Lee, which it will use to pay for the Berkshire properties and refinance Lee’s approximately $400 million in existing debt.” and As part of the agreement, Lee will enter into a 10-year lease for BH Media’s real estate.”

It appears that MHI is about as friendly toward growth of the industry as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce is friendly toward smaller businesses.

There is nothing so useless as doing efficiently that which should not be done at all.” – Peter Drucker. Some lessons [from COVID lockdowns] are already clear. Small businesses should open despite executive orders (which are not laws) to stay closed — then challenge the authorities in court. ” From Rahn’s “Politicians use COVID-19 war to destroy small businesses” in 6.8.2020, several new 2021 insights from Rahn follow.
MHProNews will not tire when it comes to pointing out the obvious failures of MHI for some two decades and their so-called leaders (top staff and board/corporate) to do what is necessary to help manufactured housing achieve its true potential.

Nor will MHProNews grow weary of pointing out that the ‘failures’ of MHI all seem to benefit their larger brands, while routinely harming independents. Is that magic? Coincidence? Or is that part of a paltering, posturing, preening strategy that has been uniquely revealed by our twin-pro-manufactured home, pro-robust industry growth, pro-consumer, but anti-corruption and anti-monopolistic platform stances?


MHI and its corporate leaders can’t have it both ways.
