Regarding Gaslighting-‘MHI News’–Manufactured Housing Institute, Monopolistic Housing Institute, Machiavellian Housing Institute, Manipulative Housing Institute? Friday Facts, Follies, Stocks Update

Regarding GaslightingMHInewsManufactureHousingInstituteMonopolisticHousing InstituteMachiavellianHousingInstituteManipulativeHousing InstituteFridayFactsFolliesStocksUpdate

Stating the obvious can be a potent method for bringing clarity to an issue. When finding housing under $200,000 has become quote – “a myth” – manufactured housing ought to be soaring to all time highs. Was that mentioned by the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) in their latest emailed “news” dated Wednesday, November 30, 2022? No. Did MHI announce the long awaited national educational and image building campaign that has been discussed for over 17 years? No. Did MHI announce the launch of litigation to stop the approaching Department of Energy (DOE) manufactured housing energy standards that MHI claims they want to stop? See for yourself what MHI did and didn’t say in their 11.30.2022 emailed news update that follows. Their ‘news’ will be briefly unpacked by a focused fact check and analysis of the Monopolistic Housing Institute, err, Machiavellian Housing Institute, oops, Manipulative Housing Institute or what they prefer being called, the Manufactured Housing Institute (ugh).

The Daily Business News on MHProNews left-right headlines recap and MHVille market report on industry connected equities makes up the third and final segment of today’s post.

As someone ponders the following, recall that earlier this year a media probe was conducted on this question: how much might manufactured housing stocks drop if a serious antitrust effort were launched? It is relevant in this context and ICYMI or to refresh a reader’s recall, that report and analysis is linked below. The headline mention in this report on gaslighting is connected to the second linked report below.

Against that evidence-based backdrop, is the following according to MHI (Monopolistic Housing Institute, Machiavellian Housing Institute, Manipulative Housing Institute, or Manufactured Housing Institute – take your pick) are the following ‘news’ items. Note that their most recent ‘news’ item in their latest email is dated 11.17.2022, almost two weeks old (yawn, how long does it take a dozen or so MHI staffers to actually assemble this puny ‘news’ list?). Are they partying at MHI? What are they doing with all of their MHI time?

Highlighting in the MHI 11.30.2022 ‘news’ that is in yellow or aqua below are added by MHProNews. Those may get special attention in what follows.  As a reminder, quoting MHI should not be misconstrued as MHProNews in any way endorsing MHI.

Manufactured Housing Consensus Committee Forwards Energy Standard Updates to HUD – Rejects Wholesale Adoption of Department of Energy Rule


On November 17, the Manufactured Housing Consensus Committee (MHCC) completed its second week of meetings regarding the incorporation of the Department of Energy’s (DOE) manufactured housing energy conservation standards (Energy Rule) into the HUD Code.

By a voice vote, the MHCC forwarded to HUD its recommended HUD code revisions, which were consistent with MHI’s initial proposal.

MHI is having follow-up meetings with HUD, DOE, and Members of Congress to share the outcome of the meeting as evidence that the DOE standard must be incorporated into the HUD Code before it is implemented and enforced.

FHA Releases Annual Updates, Including for the Office of Manufactured Housing


The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) recently released its Annual Management Report for fiscal year 2022. This report highlights the mission, objectives, and performance of programs across FHA and summarizes the accomplishments of those programs over the prior fiscal year. As part of this report, FHA provides an overview of the activities and accomplishments of the Office of Manufactured Housing Programs (OMHP).

Of note, the report called attention to CrossMod® homes as an example of modern and innovative developments in manufactured housing. The report tied these new innovations to the HUD Code updates finalized in July 2021, observing that these “HUD Code updates allow for the design and production of more innovative and modern manufactured homes.” Further, the report highlights some of the features of CrossMod® homes, noting that “these homes combine innovative and efficient methods used in factory-built construction yet are indistinguishable from site-built homes and include higher roof pitches, permanent and lower profile foundations, energy efficient features, garages or carports, and porches.”

In mid-November FHA also released its Annual Report to Congress on the FHA Mutual Mortgage Insurance Fund (MMIF), an accounting of the financial condition of the FHA single family loan program. In its report, FHA announced that its capital ratio increased from 8.03% to 11.11% – which is now over 5.5 times its statutory minimum ratio of 2%. However, despite this strong financial showing, FHA does not appear to be poised to reduce FHA annual premiums, at least until the FY2023 budget process is completed. The report included a section on manufactured home loans with a chart showing that 3.23 percent of FHA Title II forward mortgages were for mortgages on manufactured homes secured by real estate, compared to 1.38 percent for the rest of the mortgage market.

 In October, after years of strong advocacy efforts by MHI with the Administration and Congress, FHA published a proposed rule to update the Indexing Methodology for Title I Manufactured Home Loan Limits. FHA’s Title I program is designed to provide financing for personal property loans (also called chattel) on manufactured homes. However, the program needs significant updating, and in 2021 only insured financing for five personal property loans.

FHFA Announces Increases in Conforming

Loan Limit Values for 2023


Yesterday, the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) announced increases in the conforming loan limit values (CLLs) for mortgages to be acquired by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in 2023. The Housing and Economic Recovery Act requires that baseline CLL values be adjusted annually to account for changes in the average price of a home in the U.S. Across most of the U.S. the 2023 CLL value for one-unit properties will be $726,200. This represents an increase of $79,000 from 2022; in high-cost areas of the country, the new ceiling loan limit for one-unit properties will be $1,089,300. These increases for 2023 are the result of rising home prices throughout the U.S. and mark the first time that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will be backstopping mortgages in excess of a million dollars. MHI will continue advocating for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to do more for manufactured housing financing, pursuant to their Duty to Serve the manufactured housing market.

MHI Supports Mortgage Insurance Tax Deduction Permanency


On Thursday, November 17, MHI joined with leading housing associations, including the National Association of Realtors and the Mortgage Bankers Association, to urge the Committee on Ways and Means to include H.R. 6109, the Middle Class Mortgage Insurance Premium Act of 2021, in any final 2022 tax package. This bipartisan legislation makes the mortgage insurance premium tax deduction permanent and increases its income phaseout. For millions of borrowers, including those buying manufactured homes, mortgage insurance helps bridge the down payment gap for buyers lacking a 20 percent down payment or those with less than perfect credit, and supports access to affordable and sustainable homeownership for American families. Click here to read the letter to the Senate Committee on Finance and here for the letter submitted to the House Committee on Ways and Means.

The new building can support community services for up to 70 children. See additional news coverage here.

MHI Mourns Loss of Brad Morgan


With great sadness, MHI mourns the loss of Brad Morgan on November 24, 2022. As part owner of Midwest Homes in Minerva, OH, Brad was a former MHI national representative and longtime Ohio MHA Board member. He will be missed by many. Click here to read his obituary. … ##

… other items in the 11.30.2022 MHI ‘news’ included plugs for MHI profit centers in ‘education’ and ‘meetings.’ Those need not be dignified in the slightest by showing them on this MHProNews periodic Friday Follies post. That said, it is folly to think that MHI can ‘teach’ the industry anything about growing the industry when their obviously failed CrossMods initiative, among other MHI ‘efforts,’ turned out to be such a DUD that landed with a THUD.

LOL Funny, If MHI’s Report Weren’t So Pathetic – Additional Information with More MHProNews Analysis and Commentary in Brief

In reverse order from MHI’s ‘news’ are the following observations.

  • A) For years, MHProNews would periodically report the loss of some industry professional, so, MHI apparently decided it was a good idea to follow that lead, perhaps to burnish their tarnished image? That said, the loss of Brad Morgan may be the only actual news among their items above.
  • B) The Flagship Communities item by MHI is perhaps a case of putting lipstick on a pig. MHProNews recently unpacked the facts behind Flagship. Perhaps Nathan Smith, a past MHI chair who is still active with several MHI/NCC/PAC activities, likely didn’t value the facts revealed below, so it was time to ‘gaslight.’ So, so, sorry that Smith and his colleagues feelings may have been bruised, but far more important are the points that Flagship’s residents should be properly treated, and that current or potential Flagship investors realize legally problematic areas in their manufactured home community consolidation scheme.

Flagship Communities – Hypocrisy, MHIndustry Corruption? ‘Fragmented Industry with High Barriers to Entry and Imbalanced Supply and Demand Dynamics;’ Plus Sunday MHVille Weekly Headlines Review


  • C) “MHI Supports Mortgage Insurance Tax Deduction Permanency” is an example of MHI providing more benefits to their ‘housing coalition partners’ on an issue that is more important for conventional housing than it is for the majority of manufacutred home customers in recent years. Note too that this MHI ‘news’ item is also some 2 weeks old. That noted, where is that housing coalition letter asking HUD to properly enforce the Manufactured Housing Improvement Act (MHIA) of 2000’s “enhanced preemption” provision? Is MHI just lazy? Or is MHI just engaging in a slow-motion con game designed to keep the manufactured housing industry underperforming so consolidators poach and profit which explains why they posture efforts that don’t get pro-manufactured housing existing federal laws enforced?
  • D) Might be the oddly funniest example of MHI news. “FHFA Announces Increases in Conforming Loan Limit Values for 2023” ends with this line. MHI ends the item by mentioning a point that MHProNews, as well as the Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR), has brought up several times in recent years. “MHI will continue advocating for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to do more for manufactured housing financing, pursuant to their Duty to Serve [DTS] the manufactured housing market.” That’s backhanded admission that MHI is not doing their job successfully. MHI claims to want to FHFA, Fannie Mae, and Freddie Mac to act on DTS. In this case MHI ironically demonstrated the points made in the reports linked below.
  • E) MHI again admits in their closing line just how pathetic and ineffective their self-proclaimed ‘advocacy’ is in practical terms. Under “FHA Releases Annual Updates, Including for the Office of Manufactured Housing” they end their item with this admission: “However, the program needs significant updating, and in 2021 only insured financing for five personal property loans.” Under MHI’s self-proclaimed ‘leadership’ on behalf of the post-production “all segments” of manufactured housing, the FHA Title I’ program did a whopping 5 loans, per their own admission. It’s colossal embarrassment now hiding in plain sight. Equally embarrassing, but perhaps foreboding, is their ongoing attempt to tout the market-failed Clayton-backed CrossModTM Homes program. Note MHI doesn’t mention the total numbers of CrossMods sold to date. Why not? Perhaps because they are so embarrassingly low that it belied their own so-called research from the timeframe when MHI made it sound like this was going to be a hot ticket. Apparently consumers would rather by a residential style manufactured home than a far more costly CrossMod?  Let’s not forget to mention the folly of linking HUD comments uncritically by MHI. If you can’t trust MHI, why should someone trust HUD reports to Congress?
‘Losing, losing, losing.’ Perhaps that should be the MHI tag line to describe it effectiveness in industry advocacy? There is NOTHING apparent on their home page about the DOE energy rule, much less other pressing industry topics. They still have the same tired CrossMod plug, which has proven for approaching 4 years to be a market failure whose launch coincided with a 2.5 year industry decline in production. More on MHI further below, following the MHARR release. When asked to comment recently, MHI leaders declined engagement, despite years of previous routine and rapid responses to MHProNews. Why are they ducking?

Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) ‘News’ Odd Admission-Claims to Members-CrossMods, HR 7651 Manufactured Housing Affordability and Energy Efficiency Act; plus Sunday Weekly MH-Headlines Recap

MHI’s own research arguably proves the opposite of their claim to have advanced manufactured housing. If they had, why is the acceptance of manufactured homes lower than 20 years ago?
This quote from an MHI insider to MHProNews was uploaded on 4.30.2020. As is so often the case, it has stood the test of time.
  • F) We did this in reverse order so that the “F” would be used for MHI’s first item, the approaching DOE energy rule. Because that F is the grade the Machiavellian Housing Institute should get for their so-called advocacy. MHI’s program appears to be straight out of George Orwell’s fictional dystopian novel 1984, where war is peace, freedom is slavery, and ignorance is strength. Even their phrasing belies MHI’s actual desire for this rule, perhaps precisely because it will dampen mainstream manufactured housing sales. One must look at who owns what in MHI’s world. Buffett’s Berkshire owns far more interests in conventional housing than it does in manufactured housing. Ditto some of the other private equity giants involved in manufactured homes and in conventional housing.


There you have it. Reading MHI news can be mildly amusing to the properly informed. It can be entertaining to imagine how much MHI staffers drink to get through their day as they posture and pretend to be advocating for “all segments” of manufactured housing.

It can even be enlightening to read MHI ‘news’ as a case study in gaslighting, con jobs, and good old-fashioned propaganda.


MHI’s New Research, Stockholm Syndrome, Chains of Habit, Defining Insanity, You Can’t Make This Stuff Up = Manufactured Housing’s Wacky Wednesday; plus MHVille REITs, Stocks Update

There are reams of interesting and useful third-party research that other trade groups might feature, but not so in the case of MHI. Instead, MHI touts its own so-called research which if the CrossMods research is any indication, is clearly flawed. MHI and their leaders have touted CrossMods and its prior ‘new class of manufactured homes’ notion for over 4 years. It has yet to gain over double digit total annual sales nationally in a single year, per information provided by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Even MHI’s own research is largely hidden behind a paywall. Are they embarrassed to show the details of those ‘studies?’ Thus, MHI arguably has earned these monikers above reflected in the satirical parody logos. Their inside and outside attorneys have not raised a peep about this in years.


Are MHI leaders and their paid mouthpieces lazy? Uninformed? Poor strategists? Or are they LIARS!?! Hypocrites!?! If they are so connected and so smart, as they claim, then where are the results on issues that they claim to advocate David P. Goch, Esq., is a paid mouthpiece for MHI. This pull quote from a letter from Goch is fascinating. On the one hand, Goch says that MHI is working for the interests of all segments of the manufactured housing industry? or are they rather, as has often been alleged with facts and supporting evidence, that they are working to slyly consolidate the industry in a fashion that skirts antitrust regulations? MHI can’t have it both ways. MHI also falsely claimed to want ‘all points of view.’ If so, then why did MHI work to keep MHProNews from being able to attend industry events? Goch threatened in writing a then MHI member who dared question the association. Part of the irony is that in hindsight, as the evidence mounts, it becomes obvious that MHI has postured efforts for almost 20 years, since the start of the Berkshire era of manufactured housing began. Coincidence? Or just part of a broader plan that has benefited a few at great cost and harm to the many?

This image was uploaded for a report dated October 6, 2020. But Alice Sparks (SSK – Alice Sparks, Nathan Smith, Kurt Keeney, died on Thursday, September 24, 2020. Did the Sparks estate receive any proceeds of the sale of stocks?  Questions swirl around SSK-turned Flagship Communities REIT that remain unanswered. So, why does MHI give them cover in their latest emailed ‘news’ item from 11.30.2022?

But other than the R.I.P above, reading much of ‘MHI news’ as if it were serious ‘news’ generated from a dozen or so MHI staffers who must be either dupped themselves and/or who are laughing every day at those who seriously buy their (pronounce this as if it were a French word) garbage would obviously be folly. 



Ben Garrison’s cartoons make it clear he is equally against “establishment” or RINO Republicans as he is against Deep State or DINO Democrats.

Several of the ‘insider’ brands at MHI are shown, but not all of them, in this collage of MHI and their corporate ‘leader’ logos. Not all MHI members are ‘into’ consolidation, but the ones shown demonstrably are. As a planned follow up to the Flagship Communities report linked herein will show, MHI’s own data is said to reflect the increasing consolidation of manufactured housing in recent years. How do ‘antitrust’ attorneys like David Goch look at themselves in the mirror to justify the harm done to consumers, employees, and small businesses by increasing consolidation and failures by MHI to get existing laws enforced?

Will 2023 bring investigations by public officials into MHI’s and their corporate masters’ various activities? Stay tuned
