Tonight’s MH Market Spotlight Report –


Just yesterday evening, we got a snapshot of the rental market. 

MMI Report – Job Housing Retail Correlations July 2019, plus Manufactured Housing Equities Updates

As an upcoming report will reflect, conventional housing has bucked headwinds lately. With that brief backdrop, per Fox Business tonight, they noted that Hispanic homeownership rates is outpacing not only black Americans, but the pace of home buying among Hispanics has surpassed the pace of buying by whites too.

According to the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) CEO Jerry Howard, “It’s really interesting…Hispanics really only make up about 18 percent of the total population, yet they’re 63 percent of all the new homebuyers since the recession ended in the last 10 years — it’s amazing.”

Howard said Hispanics tend to have more money, education, and they are often using cash to pay for homes.

And what we are doing — we’ve been studying it a little bit and what we think we see is, like a lot of Caucasian America, Hispanic income has risen significantly since the recession. Also, we see an increase in education levels among Hispanics. And thirdly, for some of the newly arriving Hispanics, they are used to paying cash for big purchases — that helps them avoid the complexities of the mortgage system,” he explained.

Hispanics seem to be reaping the benefits of the economy,” Howard said, “African American homeownership and housing, in general, seems to be still repressed.”

These points from the NAHB may shed light on an issue raised by Senator Kamala Harris, spotlighted in a recent report, linked below.

They are not seeing the same increases in either education or income. Moreover, those African Americans who are homeowners are among the only ones who are not seeing an increase or as high an increase in their house values,” Howard said.
