Oddly missing from the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) email to industry members and others dated 11.22.2023 are manufactured housing industry statistics. Those details are not given freely to the public by MHI, nor are they provided to manufactured housing industry members by MHI without cost on their new or prior version of their website. But in fairness, some historic manufactured housing industry production information was available in their immediately prior version of their website (see link here). The reason that seems odd is that the smaller in staff and funding Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR) website somehow manages to routinely and on a timely basis provide years of monthly data (see link here). Also, the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) provides a monthly report on single family housing data free to the public, which the NAHB uses social media to amplify, and which others report as news. Similarly, the National Association of Realtors (NAR) provides monthly reporting on trends in housing data. The Recreational Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) similarly makes years of month-by-month data available for their RV industry free to the public, which means that even non-RVIA members can access that information. So, when MHProNews in its expert analysis of manufactured housing “Industry News, Tips, and Views Pros Can Use” © observes that MHI lacks such data on their new website free to the public and refers to it as “Oddly missing” in their free email and on their website, it almost as if MHI stands out like a sore thumb in that regard. Why does MHI hide data when several others trade groups – MHARR, NAHB, NAR, and RVIA to name a few – make similar publicly available at no charge?

As part of the preface to this report and analysis are the following items by segments or “parts.”

Part I includes screen captures the support the information shown above about MHARR and MHI.

Part II includes some definitions as part of the analysis for this article.

Part III includes information per MHI from the most recent ‘free’ MHI email sent, dated 11.22.2023.

Part IV includes monthly state-by-state HUD Code manufactured housing (manufactured homes) production and shipment data for all 50 U.S. states.

Part V includes additional information with analysis and expert commentary which includes why such issues are relevant and important.

Part II

To set the table for the headline issues related to the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) and insights related to their email of 11.22.2023, the following key takeaways from artificial intelligence Q&A’s are useful. In response to the inquiry: “define posturing” Bing AI said: “Posturing is a noun that refers to behavior or speech that is intended to impress or mislead others and is often insincere 1It can also refer to assuming a certain body position or attitude to make an impression or gain an advantage 2

In response to the question: “Explain what the Capital Research Center means by the phrase “deception and misdirection,” Bing AI said in part: “The phrase “deception and misdirection” is used by the center to describe tactics that are employed by certain groups or individuals to obscure the truth or manipulate public opinion 1.”

Next, Bing AI was asked by MHProNews: “What does the axiom ‘fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me’ mean?” Bing AI replied: “The axiom “fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me” is a proverb that means if someone deceives or tricks you once, they’re to blame. But if the same person deceives you again, then you might as well hang a big sign that says gullible around your neck because now it’s your fault for letting it happen a second time 1The phrase is often used to describe the importance of learning from one’s mistakes and not allowing oneself to be taken advantage of repeatedly 1.”

Imagine a stadium with thousands upon thousands of Manufactured Home Pro News (MHProNews.com) readers who are asked this question. ‘How many of you want to be repeatedly be deceived and misled by an organization that postures being your friend, but has a 21st century history of failures and apparent deception that benefits only a few insiders?’ Do you think anyone in that stadium who has been paying attention would raise their hands?

With those thoughts in mind, the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) sent out the following in an email dated 11.22.2023.  In no particular order of importance, are the following items.

MHI made an emailed pitch on 11.22.2023 for their ‘training program,’ as part of their ‘education’ saying: “Educate Your Team and Grow Your Business.” What was missing in that same email was any data about September 2023 production or shipment information (more state-by-state level below in Part IV, but first).

According to the Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR), which stated: “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 declined again in September 2023.” MHARR’s free email provided several snapshots of that manufactured housing data, which included the following remarks.

QuoteMarksLeftSideJust-released statistics indicate that HUD Code manufacturers produced 7,955 new homes in September 2023, a 15.2% decrease from the 9,381 new HUD Code homes produced in September 2022. Cumulative production for 2023 is now 66,647 homes, a 25.7% decrease from the 89,812 homes produced over the same period during 2022.”

For clear thinkers, that should beg the question. How is it logically possible for the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) can claim that they are able to help “educate your team and grow your business” when MHI has demonstrably been unable to help the manufactured housing industry grow, as evidenced by 11 straight months of year-over-year production declines?

Isn’t the answer to that inquiry obvious?

In reply to this question put to Bing AI was the following.

> “What are some tactics used by those who posture, use deception and misdirection, or otherwise employ gaslighting?”

BingsAIchatAnswerImage-MHProNewsThose who posture, use deception and misdirection, or otherwise employ gaslighting may use a variety of tactics to achieve their goals. Here are some examples of tactics that may be used:

  1. Overriding your reality: Gaslighters may try to convince you that your perceptions, memories, and beliefs are mistaken or unfounded 12.
  2. Using your insecurities against you: Gaslighters may use your insecurities or vulnerabilities to manipulate you or make you doubt yourself 3.
  3. Denying the truth: Gaslighters may deny the truth or refuse to acknowledge facts that contradict their narrative 1.
  4. Blaming you for their behavior: Gaslighters may try to shift the blame for their behavior onto you, making you feel guilty or responsible for their actions 3.
  5. Isolating you from others: Gaslighters may try to isolate you from friends, family, or other sources of support to make you more dependent on them 3.

These are just a few examples of the tactics that may be used by those who posture, use deception and misdirection, or otherwise employ gaslighting. It’s important to be aware of these tactics so that you can recognize them and protect yourself from their effects.

I hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.

Do gas lighters and con artists sometimes deploy a variety of sources that seem to say similar things and then posture, palter, and repeat those narratives in order to make the con seem believable?

BingsAIchatAnswerImage-MHProNewsYes, gaslighters and con artists may use a variety of tactics to make their cons seem believable. One such tactic is to deploy a variety of sources that seem to say similar things and then posture, palter, and repeat those narratives 1This can create the illusion of a consensus or overwhelming evidence in support of their claims, making it more difficult for their targets to question or challenge them 1.

Another tactic that may be used is to use your own insecurities or vulnerabilities against you 2This can make you more susceptible to manipulation and less likely to question the gaslighter’s claims 2.

It’s important to be aware of these tactics so that you can recognize them and protect yourself from their effects. If you suspect that you are being gaslit or conned, it’s important to seek help from a trusted friend, family member, or professional.

I hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.

Summing up Part I, Part II and the preface. What MHARR, NAHB, NAR, and the RVIA provide freely to the public, MHI routinely charges a membership fee (a.k.a. dues) to obtain. While the case can be made that this is their right, not to give away information that they paid to obtain, it is demonstrably a different mode of operation (modus operandi or M.O.) than other similar national trade associations or groups use. Those insights help set the stage for what follows.

 

Part III – Several Items from MHI Email Dated 11.22.2023

News from Washington

Affordable HOMES Act Introduced in Congress

Last week, Representative Larry Bucshon (IN-8) introduced H.R. 6421, the Affordable HOMES Act, in the U.S. House of Representatives. The Affordable Housing Over Mandated Efficiency Standards Act, or the Affordable HOMES Act, will end the regulatory conflict between the Department of Energy (DoE) and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) regarding energy efficiency standards for manufactured housing.

 

The Affordable HOMES Act repeals Section 413 of the Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) of 2007 and would ensure that the Department of Energy’s (DOE) final rule on Energy Conservation Standards for Manufactured Housing will have no force or effect. Halting implementation of the EISA’s flawed approach and re-affirming HUD’s long-standing exclusive control over federal manufactured housing standards is the best way to ensure the timely adoption of improved energy efficiency standards for factory-built housing – and preserve the availability of affordable manufactured homes for Americans.

 

Upon introduction, the legislation included eleven original cosponsors. These cosponsors were: Representatives Randy Weber (TX-14), Kat Cammack (FL-3), Debbie Lesko (AZ-8), Earl Carter (GA-1), Mariannette Miller-Meeks (IA-1), James Baird (IN-4), Neal Dunn (FL-2), John Moolenaar (MI-2), Charles Fleischmann (TN-3), Lance Gooden (TX-5), and Rudy Yakym (IN-2). The bill is expected to be under consideration before the full Energy and Commerce Committee in December. MHI will circulate a template letter for state associations to send to their members the week of December 4.

Manufactured Housing Community Bill Introduced in House and Senate

Last week, lawmakers in both houses of Congress introduced legislation designed to revitalize and preserve manufactured home communities across the United States. Senators Catherine Cortez Masto (NV), Jeanne Shaheen (NH) and Tina Smith (MN), and Representative Suzanne Bonamici (OR-1) introduced the bicameral legislation that would make the Preservation and Reinvestment Initiative for Community Enhancement (PRICE) program permanent and provide funding for home improvements and neighborhood upgrades for eligible Americans on an annual basis.

MHI Member Exclusive: Zoning Impact Map

MHI developed an interactive map to inform members about the impacts of land use and zoning decisions on manufactured housing at state and local levels.

 

When you hover over the state it will provide the text of the state law if one exists. By clicking on a state, you can obtain state racial and income data and the percentage of manufactured housing within the state. By clicking on a county, you will find county-level demographic data, as well as lot size information, if available.

 

This interactive map is just one of the tools included with MHI membership. Members get regular updates on industry news about regulatory, technical, statistical and financial issues. This includes monthly economic reports direct to your email, included with your membership.

 

Learn more about MHI membership here.

[MHProNews notes: this is an analysis and critique of MHI and their 11.22.2023 email, not a pitch for an arguably problematic trade group. The link to their membership above has therefor been deleted.] Two other segments of the MHI email dated 11.22.2023 included the following topical headings. Events are a profit center for MHI, and MHI events have been alleged as opportunities for consolidator to collude, per the pleadings of national class action litigation.

Educate Your Team and Grow Your Business

MHI Events Calendar

 

As was noted in Part II above, it is hardly logical for MHI to claim that they can “The Manufactured Housing Educational Institute (MHEI) has an outstanding online training program to help retailers increase sales” via their training program when the industry is in an 11-month downturn occurring during an affordable housing crisis. That bold claim could arguably be part of their ‘gaslighting,’ “posturing,” “deception and misdirection.” Another potential element of deception and misdirection is their “excellence” awards program that has issued “awards” to companies that appear to violate their previously published “Code of Ethical Conduct.”

When MHI provides members with a “zoning tool,” how exactly is that “tool” supposed to be a member benefit? As has routinely been noted by MHProNews and MHLivingNews in numbers of articles, reports, and analyses, MHI and MHARR teamed up to enact the Manufactured Housing Improvement Act (MHIA) of 2000. It has as an important provision an item that is supposed to give HUD the authority to override zoning and placement barriers to HUD Code manufactured homes. Who says? How about MHI corporate leader and senior MHI “executive committee” board leader William “Bill” Boor? Or what about remarks made by then executive vice president, and now MHI CEO, Lesli Gooch, Ph.D.?

When MHI creates a tool to identify zoning barriers, it is an apparent admission that such barriers exist despite the law that MHARR and MHI helped enact. This document with MHProNews emphasis shown below is no longer available on the public side of the MHI website. It is unknown if it is available to MHI members at this time.

MHI-MHARR-ImplementationOfManufacturedHousingImprovementActof2000-MHIA-EnhancedPreemptionMHProNewsDocument
While the arrows and notes by MHProNews can be useful, go back in time in your own mind to the period when this document and the one that follows were first issued. That was 2003. Nearly 2 decades have elapsed. The second MHI document clearly indicates that MHI was working with MHARR to make “enhanced preemption” and better financing options for manufactured housing a reality. What derailed that era of cooperation between MHI and MHARR? Note: depending on your browser or device, many images in this report and others on MHProNews can be clicked to expand.

While some MHI members apparently favor consolidation of the industry as opposed to growing the industry, to the extent such is the case, to that same extent all MHI members who think they are or were paying for membership so that MHI would be working towards enforcement of the MHIA of 2000’s “enhanced preemption” provision are arguably deceived or defrauded of the benefits of membership.  By MHI claiming that they are educating members so that they can “grow” the industry, when the data reveals that the industry is in an 11-month production decline, they are seemingly gaslighting current and potential members who may not have grasped the unstated MHI agenda of consolidation. This may be illegal in several respects (see a deep dive into that topic linked here, which as of this date MHI and/or MHI linked attorneys have not responded to MHProNews).

The top two issues facing the manufactured home industry today are per an array of sources zoning barriers and access to more and lower cost financing. MHI itself has said that those issues are ‘top’ priorities. But if that is so, why did MHI remove their priorities document from the public side of their website when they revamped their website’s look last late summer?

MHI’s zoning tool ironically helps document that national associations own failures in what they claim to be working to correct. See link here and here.

Part V. Additional Information with More MHProNews Analysis and Commentary

For some time, MHI fails to give the political affiliation of the various lawmakers they cite. Why? This matters in several ways, including the fact that legislation often needs to be bipartisan in order to become law. Restated, MHI may be hiding the low odds of enactment of bills they tout in the curious, conflicted, and arguably unprofessional ways for a Ph.D. in political science to behave. Third party research sources such as GovTrack and Skopos Labs, for example, routinely give low odds for bills to become law if they are not bicameral as well as strongly bipartisan.

MHARR focuses on facts and analysis supported by evidence in support of their pro-industry growth agenda. While there are exceptions, MHI and MHARR routinely seem to agree on several aspects of federal laws that both say are not being properly enforced.

The failure to enforce those laws are stunting industry growth.

MHARR has also argued that what laws are enacted that may seem to support manufactured housing routinely fail to ‘reach the ground’ in terms of actual measurable benefits.

Gaslighting and other forms of con jobs (confidence games or shell games) are often predicated on gaining the “mark’s” trust.  The Q&A of Bing AI defining “Mark” as follows.

> “What does the term “mark” mean in the context of confidence jobs or con games?”

 

Historically, manufactured housing produced a higher percentage of new housing than it has since the dawn of the Berkshire era.

 

ManufacturedHousingIndustryProductionSnapshot1960to2022SkylineChampionInvestorRelationsManufacturedHomeProNews
The graphic above starts in the mobile home era in 1960 through the start of the start of the Manufactured Housing era which formally began on June 15, 1976. It then continues through the Manufactured Housing Improvement Act of 2000 (MHIA) of 2000 era, which is essentially manufactured homes in the 21st century. The Manufactured Housing Institue (MHI) and the Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform IMHARR) teamed up in the late 1990s to get the Manufactured Housing Improvement Act of 2000 (MHIA) enacted into law. It was supposed to, among other factors, give the industry ‘enhanced federal preemption’ to overcome zoning and placement challenges at the local level. What happened to that once joint push by MHARR and MHI? Note: depending on your browser or device, many images in this report can be clicked to expand.

Former MHI President and CEO Chris Stinebert told The Wall Street Transcript in 2004 that the industry was ready to rebound. 19 years later, isn’t it fair to wonder what happened?

 

Literally Historic! Former Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) President-CEO Chris S. Stinebert Remarks Embarrassingly Upend Current MHI Narratives – Why MHI Purged? Plus MHVille Markets Update

 

MHI’s email made announcements and a pitch for new legislation.  Why didn’t MHI address the issue that MHProNews/MHLivingNews and MHARR’s Mark Weiss sharply pointed out that MHI’s CEO Lesli Gooch handed a gift-wrapped excuse to Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and FHFA on? Weiss called Gooch’s remarks ‘inexcusable and a major problem.’

When MHI’s email points out that one of those two bills mentioned in their 11.22.2023 email was bicameral, it should clearly imply that the other bill is not bicameral. That means that the bill will never become law, until both houses of Congress take it up and properly enact reconciled language in their legislation.

Put differently, MHI’s email of 11.22.2023 is apparently posturing and gaslighting through and through. They are seemingly designed to create the illusion that MHI is working on behalf of industry growth, despite the fact that several MHI members have publicly stated that consolidation, not growth, is a higher priority.

Much of what MHI does fails to fit the profile of a normal national trade association that claims to be working to expand their industry, as MHI claims. Rephrased, these are recent examples of the MHI con job in action. To learn more, see the related reports that follow and are otherwise linked herein.

Trade media can and should be a ‘cheer leader’ when it is appropriate to do so. But authentic trade media also holds the powers that be to account. Who says? The American Press Institute.

Our son has grown quite a bit since this 12.2019 photo. All on Capitol Hill were welcoming and interested in our manufactured housing industry related concerns. But Congressman Al Green’s office was tremendous in their hospitality. Our son’s hand is on a package that included the Constitution of the United States, bottled water, and other goodies.
