There are people of good will in a wide variety of organizations, political movement, faiths, genders, and any other subset that one cares to name. In an era of ‘divide and conquer, ‘ or ‘polarize and manipulate,’ it is useful to keep in mind that many across the spectrum have good intentions.

That said, the maxim that the road to hell is paved with good intentions must be kept in mind too.

Realty is at times more bizarre than fiction. Indeed, several movies ‘based upon a true story’ make that very point.

On MHProNews as well as our general public-facing sister site, we have long had a simple goal. To help move the industry towards its great potential. Thousands of industry professionals, significant numbers of investors, and millions of homeowners already have a grasp of what that potential is.

Sam Zell said on stage that they have never lost confidence in manufactured housing. Warren Buffett has made the point that he doesn’t want Berkshire Hathaway to be involved in an industry that is difficult to understand. The both see manufactured homes as the future, which is logically why they and others keep consolidating parts of the industry.

 

 

Tens of millions of Americans need affordable homes. Manufactured housing offers that option. Indeed, while there are several types of prefab or industrialized forms of construction, HUD Code manufactured homes are by far – at this time – the most proven form.

Day by day, MHProNews and our sister site pull back the veil and shine a light on what’s seemingly wrong, but also on what’s right.

Coach Lou Holtz did some amazing things with young college football players. Not unlike the famous Vince Lombardi, Holtz had at or near the core of his life certain spiritual values. He summed those up like this for those who followed his method.

Simple, honest, wise words from a highly successful coach. Before a national game while at Arkansas, Holtz lived that mantra in the following manner.  “The 1978 Orange Bowl was a college football bowl game played on January 2, 1978, featuring the Arkansas Razorbacks against the heavily-favored Oklahoma Sooners… To complicate matters for Arkansas, first-year head coach Lou Holtz suspended three players prior to the game for team violations. Two of those players, running backs Ben Cowins and Donny Bobo, had together accounted for 78% of their points. Oklahoma was led by redshirt sophomore halfback Billy Sims, a future Heisman Trophy winner, and on defense by safety Darrol Ray and linebacker Daryl Hunt. Although the suspended Arkansas players protested, Holtz refused to back down and the suspensions stood. Already considered a heavy underdog to Oklahoma, with the loss of those starters Arkansas was expected to give little competition in the game. Arkansas was an 18-point underdog prior to the suspensions. After the suspensions, they were given as 24-point underdogs by Las Vegas oddsmakers…Arkansas defeated Oklahoma 31–6.” Per Wikipedia.

That our trade publications have evolved over time is apparent to those who have followed us for almost a decade. Our sincere thanks to those on LinkedIn or through other communications forms have been sending in messages of congratulations as our 10th anniversary of publishing MHProNews approaches this week.

There is a saying that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. If so, then imitators like MHInsider, MHReview, or others less known ought to be seen at least in part through that lens. There have been some publications that have come and gone since we launched this in the dark days of mid-October 2009.

Here alone in MHVille trade media are the fact checks, investigative reports, follow the money, and efforts to span the various divisions addressed in a straight forward fashion. There will be new reports tomorrow and next week, some will be on topics and news you won’t find anywhere else in manufactured housing.

Affordable housing is the future, not only the past or present. That means for some time to come the war over manufactured housing’s domination or liberation will be a hot item found here.

Numerous items were covered last week, more lie ahead. With no further adieu, let’s look at the week that was from September 29 to October 6, 2019. God Bless America, and God save manufactured housing.
