Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

  • A bill put forth by Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., aims to make loans more affordable by offering retail banking services at the U.S. Postal Service,” says CNBC.
  • The proposal opens questions as to how the loans will be paid for and serviced.
  • While the odds this year on this passing would be low, what happens after the midterms could change the calculus on a bill like this in the future.
  • Its one for manufactured housing pros to watch. Gillibrand’s logic on this bill, could it extend to manufactured home loans later?
  • The legislation, called the Postal Banking Act, would make retail banking services available at all U.S. Postal Service locations. That amounts to 30,000 post offices nationwide.
