‘Quite Obvious U.S. Economy Slowing,’ TRERC Research Economist Harold Hunt, Ph.D. Manufactured Housing Demand in #1 Texas Slips, Slowdown in 2nd Half of 2022 Expected; plus, MHStocks Updates


It is not all ‘bad news’ according to Dr. Harold Hunt, Ph.D., at the Texas Real Estate Research Center at Texas A&M University (TRERC). “While raw-materials prices fell for the first time in eight months,” said the TRERC media release below. The Texas Manufactured Housing Association’s Vice President of Operations, Rob Ripperda, said that the woes at retail have not yet slowed production or payrolls. While the TRERC release does not explain why, previous reports by MHProNews have spelled it out rather neatly. As retail traffic and deliveries slow, said publicly traded Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) members, community sales going into land-leases have picked up that slack.

The TRERC release is below. It will be followed by additional information, more analysis and commentary, plus our Daily Business News on MHProNews stock updates on a day when equities largely retreated.


Texas’ manufactured housing demand slips, could slow in second half of 2022

COLLEGE STATION, Tex. (Texas Real Estate Research Center) – Recent recessionary concerns suggest a possible slowdown in manufactured housing sales for the remainder of 2022, according to industry experts and the Texas Real Estate Research Center at Texas A&M University (TRERC).

“It is now quite obvious that the U.S. economy is slowing,” said TRERC Research Economist Dr. Harold Hunt. “Mortgage rates are significantly higher than they were a year ago, and that is already putting a damper on the housing market.”

The latest Texas Manufactured Housing Survey (TMHS) sales index registered its lowest reading on record (the series began in June 2020), and activity is expected to slow in the second half of the year.

“There is a wide disparity between economists, however, regarding how much the economy will slow in the months ahead, and employment growth remains strong,” said Hunt.

Manufactured-housing output and payrolls held firm in June, but TMHS respondents contemplated pulling back production as they adjust to weaker demand.

While raw-materials prices fell for the first time in eight months, supply-chain issues continued both upstream and downstream from manufacturers.

“Market dynamics have shifted from supply constraints at the plant level to demand constraints at the retail level,” said Rob Ripperda, vice president of operations for the Texas Manufactured Housing Association. “Texas retailers are battling a lack of transportation and install services to deliver sold homes, falling foot traffic from new customers, and increased inventory costs on any deals that fall through.”

These challenges, combined with impending regulatory changes from the Department of Energy, resulted in heightened uncertainty and a more moderate outlook after a bullish start to the year. Expectations of future interest-rate increases suggest that these headwinds may persist for the foreseeable future.  ##

Funded by Texas real estate licensee fees, TRERC was created by the state legislature to meet the needs of many audiences, including the real estate industry, instructors, researchers, and the public. 



Additional Information, More MHProNews Analysis and Commentary

The TRERC release above is dated 7.5.2022. It is about brevity as opposed to more robust detail. That’s simply a statement of fact, as the report – while brief – supports the concerns raised by this publication in various reports, analysis, and commentaries in recent months. In no particular order of importance:

  • An economic slowdown is per several sources and a range of evidence already here. The Atlanta Federal Reserve said the U.S. economy contracted in the 2nd quarter of 2022. The economy also contracted in the first quarter, and if those preliminary numbers hold, that fits the definition of a recession.
  • As Hunt said, the question is how serious will this downturn be?
  • For manufactured housing, that issue isn’t as easy to answer as it is for site builders. As MHI has periodically admitted, there are zoning and placement barriers to manufactured housing installations. But unlike the Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR), MHI appears to have no interest in using litigation to enforce the industry’s rights under the Manufactured Housing Improvement Act (MHIA) of 2000. Nor is there any known indication that a state association is interested in suing to get the industry’s rights under the MHIA’s principle of “enhanced preemption” over local zoning barriers enforced.
  • Then, as TRERC lightly noted, the DOE manufactured housing energy rule is coming in less than a year. Despite the invitation and encouragement by MHARR for MHI to use litigation to stop the implementation of this rule, which both trade groups agree will harm the sales of entry level and other manufactured housing, there is no indication yet that MHI is even thinking about doing so. Instead, MHI is posturing mere fig-leaf efforts, their bill that has far too few so-sponsors and none of which are Democrats. Given that Joe Biden sits in the White House and he appears unwilling to waiver from his commitments to the questionable ‘green new deal’ agenda, even if MHI obtained sufficient numbers in both House and Senate – highly unlikely, per GovTrack and Skopos Labs – the odds are slimmer still that they would have a veto-proof majority. Put differently, MHI’s sponsored bill to modify the DOE manufactured housing energy rule – which if MHI had thought ahead and were serious about it should have been filed two years ago – is unlikely to ever become law.
  • After years of ‘battling’ for the enforcement of Duty to Serve (DTS), the MHIA and “enhanced preemption” and now to stop the DOE manufactured housing energy rule, it is obvious that only litigation and a public relations/educational campaign remains. These are post-production issues, which means it falls under MHI’s umbrella of representing – so they claim – “all segments” of the manufactured home industry.
  • MHI leaders have to date shown no interest in the path of litigation. This despite the fact that Tim Williams, during an MHI meeting said in response to a question from MHProNews that litigation may become necessary at some point in time. But, said Williams, they want to try other things ‘first.’ Well, after roughly a decade since that remark, where is the MHI follow up? Was that response sincere, or more theatrics to buy time while more independents fail under the weight of regulatory and other artificial barriers?
  • Meanwhile, the consolidation of various parts of the manufactured home industry continues. This appears to be the genuine function of MHI, though it is not the one that they admit to embracing.

There are, in theory, other possible paths. For example. One option could involve ‘white hat’ independents organizing and pressing public officials for a probe of MHI and apparent antitrust, RICO, and other possible violations of federal and/or state laws. But that too would depend on several factors that take time and effort. Those looking for a quick easy fix won’t like it.


Meanwhile, the countdown clock for the enforcement of the DOE energy rule is ticking. While MHARR’s efforts and keeping the industry informed are noble and highly useful, as the reports linked below make clear, they also admit that MHI has to get involved in stopping the DOE rule, or in getting DTS and the MHIA’s “enhanced preemption” enforced.


Based on the years of evidence of what looks like two-faced “deception and misdirection” – a term used by the Capital Research Center (CRC) – it will take a serious push-back by independents that are part of state associations and MHI to cause a course correction. But given that the status quo is profitable to MHI’s larger and publicly traded brands, perhaps it is no surprise that there is no progress being made.

Or as a Manufactured Housing Executive Committee (MHEC) member told MHProNews some months ago, ‘this is not a fighting industry.’ While the case could be made that there are obvious exceptions to that, such as MHARR or our trade publications, the fact that most grumble or trust but do not press for what is obviously necessary regrettably makes the point of that MHEC member one that should be considered. Perhaps even more independents are ready to sell out to the ‘big boys’ and simply escape the head aches and heart aches?

Time will tell. Until it does, MHProNews will continue to report and provide expert, independent analysis regardless of who says or does what. Facts and evidence matter. To base business decisions on mere hope is not a strategy. Or as YourDictionary says that one of the most legendary coaches in professional football framed it: “Hope is not a strategy. Fear is not an option.” Vince Lombardi.
