Has MHVille Reporting Forced Pivots? TRERC, TMHA, Manufactured Housing Institute Each Change Tune Following MHARR, MHProNews Reports – Fact Check, Analysis; plus Manufactured Home Community REITs, Stocks Update


“Texas housing manufacturers expect rebound in early 2023” says the latest press release from the Texas Real Estate Research Center to MHProNews. That follows several months of reports with fact checking and analysis that revealed factual and evidence-based disconnects between what TRERC and the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) affiliated Texas Manufactured Housing Association (TMHA) reported.

Per the cover memo to their release: “COLLEGE STATION, Tex. (Texas Real Estate Research Center) – After booming during the COVID-19 pandemic, the manufactured-housing correction continued as business activity slipped for the eighth consecutive month, according to the November edition of the Texas Manufactured Housing Survey.

All respondents noted a decrease in month-over-month sales, and the production index remained in negative territory. The number-of-employees index fell to its lowest level on record, indicating payroll reductions as manufacturers adjusted operations, and average work weeks fell accordingly.”

That may be an apparent reference to what is reported below.

Per TRERC, the “Attached press release has details.”


Texas housing manufacturers expect rebound in early 2023

COLLEGE STATION, Tex. (Texas Real Estate Research Center) – After booming during the COVID-19 pandemic, the manufactured-housing correction continued as business activity slipped for the eighth consecutive month, according to the November edition of the Texas Manufactured Housing Survey.

All respondents noted a decrease in month-over-month sales, and the production index remained in negative territory. The number-of-employees index fell to its lowest level on record, indicating payroll reductions as manufacturers adjusted operations, and average work weeks fell accordingly.

“Activity in the overall housing sector has stalled as a result of the Federal Reserve’s interest rate increases, and manufactured housing is not immune to the slowdown,” said Dr. Harold Hunt, research economist for the Texas Real Estate Research Center. “The consensus is that rate hikes will continue into 2023, albeit at a slower pace, resulting in a generally negative shortterm outlook for housing and housing-adjacent industries.”

Despite current challenges, optimism over the next six months turned positive across multiple indicators. Manufacturers anticipate activity to rebound in 2023 through higher sales and production, and out-of-state shipments should pick up after stalling since May.

“Sales to retailers are subdued by downstream inventory constraints, particularly as floor plan lenders pulled back overage amounts and credit dried up earlier this year,” said Rob Ripperda, vice president of operations for the Texas Manufactured Housing Association. “Fortunately for manufacturers, end-consumer sales are holding up relatively well and are still on pace to finish the year above 2021 levels. Higher housing costs across the board appear to be pulling consumers into the manufactured-home market, and the industry’s affordability advantage remains a source of optimism.”

Manufacturers anticipate additional supply-chain smoothing, leading to lower costs for raw materials and downward pressure on sale prices. While the clouds may be clearing for a rebound in early 2023, looming regulatory changes and general macroeconomic uncertainty remain the primary headwinds to the industry.

Funded by Texas real estate licensee fees, TRERC was created by the state legislature to meet the needs of many audiences, including the real estate industry, instructors, researchers, and the public.


Additional Information with More MHProNews Analysis and Commentary in Brief

 MHProNews has for several months pointed out factual disconnects between TRERC reports and the actual manufactured housing data.

So, the sudden shift to a brighter projection may not be a coincidence. Additionally, MHProNews has been hammering MHI’s lack of willingness to be publicly accountable for their reports and activities that have produced no meaningful measurable results.

In the wake of reports such as those linked herein, MHI has issued this item to their members.



8,685 New HUD Code Homes Shipped in October

When MHProNews quotes MHI, it should not be construed as an endorsement of that trade group. As former MHI members, we know the organization from the inside as well as from their public projections.  

In October 2022, 8,685 new manufactured homes were shipped, a decrease of 678 homes or 7.2 percent compared to September 2022, and a decrease of 562 homes or 6.1 percent compared to October 2021. Compared with the same month last year, shipments of both single-section and multisection homes were down, by 0.5 percent and 10.2 percent, respectively. Total floors shipped in October 2022 were 13,478, a decrease of 1,144 floors or 7.8 percent compared with the same month last year.

The seasonally adjusted annual rate (SAAR) of shipments was 98,907 in October 2022, down 7.2 percent compared to the adjusted rate of 109,594 in September 2022. The SAAR corrects for normal seasonal variations and projects annual shipments based on the current monthly total.

Cumulative shipments from January through October this year totaled 98,456 homes compared with 88,685 homes for the same ten months of 2021, a net increase of 11.0 percent.

In October 2022, 8,694 new manufactured homes were produced, a decrease of 687 homes or 7.3 percent compared to September 2022, and a decrease of 560 homes or 6.1 percent compared to October 2021. MHI’s Monthly Economic Report includes numbers for both manufactured home production and shipments. The difference between the two is attributed to the number of homes that have been produced, but their destinations are pending. There were 21 FEMA designated units produced in October 2022.

The number of plants reporting production in October 2022 was 145 and the number of active corporations was 36, one more plant and one more corporation compared to the prior month.

MHI member login is required to access the Manufactured Housing Activity Industry Production, Shipments and Trends Report. ##


So, MHI is still requiring a member login to access data that MHARR, the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), the National Association of Realtors, or the Recreational Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) makes available to the public free monthly. But apparently, MHI is once more providing at least their members with some emailed version of their ‘economic data.’


It seems that despite MHI’s campaign to the association’s members of pretending, posturing, and paltering, by MHARR, MHProNews and MHLivingNews routinely showing the facts, evidence, and our platforms providing expert analysis has once again resulted in some movement by MHI in their messaging, albeit modest.

Will MHI change more in the days to come as a result of the steady evidence of their apparent failures to perform on behalf of “all segments” of the manufactured housing industry?

Programing Notice: check out the Sunday weekly MHVille headlines recap, which will include an exclusive fact-backed featured article that explores potential looming legal problems for MHI and some of their key members.
