Tony, you are so right on the HUD Code has become a deadly “discrimination code,” especially as it applies to manufactured home financing.
But it doesn’t end there.
Recent stories here and elsewhere have chronicled the inability to site a manufactured home in certain areas, where MODs pass, but HUDs fail, in spite of the fact the exterior and interior may be indistinguishable.
Methinks we may have to face how much we want to continue to allow the “Scarlet Code” to continue to damage our brand. ##
