The conventional housing seller or buyer’s wisdom, pardon the pun, is that manufactured homes cost less because they are “cheaper.”
How does the industry respond to that common concern?
A pair of Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) member producers responded to questions on that topic today, to MHProNews or to MHLivingNews.
On Earth Day, here’s what a MHI-only (i.e.: not a member of the Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform) member producer said in a text message, in explaining why a HUD Code home costs so much less than a conventional site built home.
While MHI might publish a press release before Earth Day is done, it is now approaching 4 PM ET. The latest search on this topic today resulted in the following.
Given the sad outcome in the last two weeks since John Oliver’s viral – and misnamed – “Mobile Homes” video – it should be stunning to MHI believers that their association failed on even such a basic effort on this topic.
But let’s look at the positive for the industry today – not found by the Arlington, VA based post-production association that claims to represent “all segments of factory-built housing” – but rather, provided by our public-focused sister site, on Manufactured Home Living News. That link to the left or below the byline is one share with those seeking greener homes.
