HUD Code Manufactured Housing Production Grows June 2022, per Official Data – Additional Facts, Analysis, Commentary; plus Manufactured Home Communities REITs, Manufactured Housing Stocks Update


Alabama roared in June 2022, besting every state but number 1 ranked Texas, per the latest federal data and related analysis on HUD Code manufactured housing production and shipments that follows below. Prior to diving into the details, a step back to look at the big picture of industry information and advocacy can prove useful. For some years the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) used to email out their ‘economic report’ monthly. MHI used to provide information somewhat similar to the facts provided by the rival Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR), which is the source for the media release below. For whatever reasons, MHI suspended their prior practice of giving monthly data, even though most trade associations (e.g.: think National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), National Association of Realtors (NAR), Recreational Vehicle Dealers Association (RVDA) or MHARR), hiding their monthly data behind a ‘members only’ login. Perhaps it was coincidence, but the MHI pivot occurred after MHProNews fact checks revealed that production and shipment of new HUD Code manufactured homes declined after MHI declared ‘momentum’ on their later rebranded CrossModTM homes initiative. Almost half a decade into what one of their members described as a ‘no traction’ in the marketplace effort to get CrossMods to meet their years of hype, MHI continues to push that rope up the hill, but no longer publicly touts the far higher numbers of ‘mainstream’ manufactured housing production and sales.  Indeed, when MHI mentions CrossMods, try to find any mention of the factual details. Good luck with that effort. It is only through hide-and-seek that the previously named ‘new class of manufactured housing’ data can be found once a year, and only because the GSEs have to disclose it to the FHFA which then provides that information to the public…if you can find it on their website. With that factually accurate backdrop and commentary is the following data provided by MHARR to MHProNews. It is followed by additional information, analysis, and more commentary.

Washington, D.C., August 3, 2022 – The Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR) reports that according to official statistics compiled on behalf of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), HUD Code manufactured housing industry year-over-year production increased in June 2022. Just-released statistics indicate that HUD Code manufacturers produced 11,373 homes in June 2022, a 20.6% increase over the 9,430 new HUD Code homes produced during June 2021. Cumulative production for 2022 now totals 61,659 homes, a 14.6% increase over the 53,759 homes produced during the same period in 2021.

A further analysis of the official industry statistics shows that the top ten shipment states from the beginning of the industry production rebound in August 2011 through June 2022 — with cumulative, monthly, current year (2022) and prior year (2021) shipments per category as indicated — are:

Biden Admin officials announced inflation is now ‘officially’ at 9.1 percent, but many believe that the actual rate of inflation is about double that claim. The Washington Examiner said that a historic record 88 percent now thinks that the U.S. is on the wrong track under Biden. As the value of the dollar erodes, that impact should be considered when looking at stock market performance.
