‘Texas Production Through March was 5368 in 2022, 3455 in 2023=35.6% Drop. Hard to See That as Anything but Trouble” TRERC Admits MHProNews ‘Correct-This is Sentiment Survey;’ Plus MHMarkets Update


Give the Texas Real Estate Research (TRERC) full credit both for responding and for doing so in a timely and transparent fashion to this inquiry about their most recent media released report, posted further below. Unlike some operating in the dramatically diminished manufactured housing industry market compared to the late 1990s or the averages through the 20th century, manufactured home production and sales are dramatically lower now. That’s despite the affordable housing crisis, a larger population now than two decades before, and a rush of millions in the Biden era crossing the border from Mexico and elsewhere “illegally.” Less than a day after the inquiry show below was sent to TRERC, this response came in via email. “Good afternoon, Tony. You [MHProNews] are correct – this is a sentiment survey. We’ll make sure future news releases are clear on that point to prevent any confusion. We appreciate the feedback.”

From MHProNews to TRERC was the following inquiry about their latest media release.

QuoteMarksLeftSideI think you know we are the largest and most read trade publisher in MHVille.  This came in with respect to the most recent report.

“I don’t know about their subjective “findings,” but I do know that Texas production through the end of March was 5368 in 2022 and 3455 in 2023, a 35.6% decrease. Hard to paint that as anything other than trouble.”

Can you clarify what your researchers are trying to convey? Is this still ‘sentiment’ or is this based on hard data?

Kindly confirm this inquiry. Please advise, thank you. …”

That tees up this media from Texas A&M University’s TRERC release dated 5.15.2023.

Part I


Production increases and momentum builds in Texas’ manufactured housing industry

COLLEGE STATION, Tex. (Texas Real Estate Research Center) – The outlook in Texas’ manufactured-housing industry strengthened for the third consecutive month, according to the latest Texas Manufactured Housing Survey (TMHS) The April reading marked the largest improvement since last summer.

New orders continued to accelerate, and the TMHS production index moved positive after stalling during the second half of 2022.

“Housing manufacturers have been preparing to ramp up production for several months, and that came to fruition in April,” said Wes Miller, senior research associate at the Texas Real Estate Research Center at Texas A&M University (TRERC). “As expected, companies expanded payrolls and lengthened workweeks to reach higher run rates.”

“Through both retailer and community channels, manufacturers have seen increased placements of their homes in and around Harris County, out west in the Midland-Odessa area, and down south in Cameron County,” said Rob Ripperda, vice president of operations for the Texas Manufactured Housing Association. “Placements are on pace to elevate further based on first-quarter shipment data, and that should pull Texas’ aggregate inventory back to normal levels. If sales stay strong, manufacturers should continue to see those orders come in and those backlogs get longer.”

TMHS respondents expressed that exact sentiment, with the sales-expectations index hovering around record highs, leading to backlogs.

“The optimism from housing manufacturers may be a result of stronger-than-expected performance by the Texas economy,” said TRERC Research Economist Dr. Harold Hunt. “Although a recession is not yet off the table, Texas’ job-growth expectations are ahead of where they were six months ago. Mortgage rates have come down from their highs as well, possibly giving buyers more confidence about the future.”

Interest rates may stabilize further as the Federal Reserve contemplates an end to the current rate-hike cycle. … ##

Part II Additional Information with More MHProNews Analysis and Commentary in Brief

New readers should know, and returning readers may value the reminder that MHProNews has for multiple monthly reporting cycles questioned and pointed out the apparent disconnects between the remarks released from TRERC vs. the hard data known for the state of Texas.  A series of links to some of those previous reports will serve to illustrate.  For instance, just last month TRERC admitted the following.


‘Production at Lowest Levels in a Decade’ but 2023 Outlook ‘Optimistic for Texas Manufactured Housing Industry,’ says TRERC – Supply Chain, Finance, Report, Analysis; plus MHVille Stocks Update


TRERC has acknowledged that they have been reporting ‘sentiments’ in their research reports. That is a different way of saying that various’ professionals apparently involved in production are being asked for their feelings or opinions – which may or may not be the same as the hard data generated by HUD’s contractor that emerges for a given month or over a specific period of time.

What happened to that previously claimed ‘rebound?’  The facts say otherwise.

Apparently Misleading Statements Emerge in #1 Manufactured Home Producer Texas Report, Why Do Texas Manufactured Housing Survey Contradictions Go Unresolved? Plus, Sunday Weekly Headlines Recap


So, as an eagle-eyed MHProNews reader who apparently has access to TRERC reports noted in an email on 5.15.2023 stated: “I don’t know about their [TRERC] subjective “findings,” but I do know that Texas production through the end of March was 5368 in 2022 and 3455 in 2023, a 35.6% decrease. Hard to paint that as anything other than trouble.” To that core inquiry, TRERC’s representative told MHProNews via email: “Good afternoon, Tony. You [MHProNews] are correct – this is a sentiment survey. We’ll make sure future news releases are clear on that point to prevent any confusion. We appreciate the feedback.”

That response from TRERC is to be applauded for the reasons previously stated.  But let’s elaborate.

  • 1) TRERC did not duck the issue raised by the MHProNews inquiry. They addressed it candidly and in a timely manner. They frankly admit that these are sentiments, which may or may not be based upon hard data.
  • 2) There can be a range of reasons for some producer, say, one that is aligned with a company that is owned by a Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) member, to say they ‘feel’ that things are ‘improving’ when the data is actually contradicting their ‘sentiments.’ See the reports linked herein for examples of that, not to mention the facts about Texas being down over 35 percent year over year through March 2023 vs. the same months in 2022.
  • 3) This timely and candid response from TRERC stands in contrast to some manufactured housing associations – routinely MHI and several of those associated with MHI – and their corporate leaders in MHVille that in recent years have sadly either: not responded, or gave responses that were oblique, misleading, obscure, paltering, etc. rather than revealing the ‘truth.’ The truth may not always be pleasant, but merits being spotlighted so that industry professionals can made more informed decisions.


Who’s Who at Manufactured Housing State Associations per Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI), Others with MHI ‘Official’ History per Al Hesselbart-Claims-Tips-Views; plus, MHVille Markets Update


Several MHI member producers have production centers in Texas. It is entirely possible that those MHI members outnumber independents producers who may give a different reply from the so-called “big three” producers who are MHI members.


Legacy Housing Financial Results and Earnings Call 1Q 2023-‘Sales Slowed but Margins Improved’ Duncan Bates Boasts of Manufactured Housing ‘Business Tailwinds’ Official Data-Analysis


As the new MHProNews report linked here revealed, since MHI consolidated several previous manufactured housing trade groups under the MHI ‘umbrella,’ manufactured housing in the 21st century has underperformed compared to 20th century. There are certainly other factors that contribute to manufactured housing underperformance, which that report reflected.

When someone compares the reports from Legacy Housing, Nobility Homes, with other larger publicly traded producers that are MHI members, various disconnects begin to emerge. MHProNews will continue to monitor and report on claims that may be paltering, inaccurate, or otherwise less than clear on issues that matter to manufactured housing. Such as the decline in sales during an affordable housing crisis.  It ought to be an embarrassment to MHI and MHI aligned ‘news’ sources (bloggers/publication) that fail to play the time-honored American media role of being a watchdog for possible corruption and wrongdoing.

As but one example, prominent MHI member Cavco Industries (CVCO) made the point that ‘January traffic was up.’ Their corporate official expressed during an earnings call the notion that more traffic should be followed by more sales. That said, not only the Texas data, but the national data proved Cavco’s claim on that ‘sentiment’ to be incorrect.

Watch for a fresh analysis on the current state of the manufactured housing market based in part upon arguably curious claims made by Tim Williams, President and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway owned 21st Mortgage Corp. That article is planned for the near term, watch for it.

In conclusion, TRERC’s researchers face an issue that any organization that produces information or ‘news’ does. It could be summed up as analogous to the old computer programmer acronym of GIGO. Garbage In, Garbage Out.  Shame on anyone that is feeding TRERC or others ‘garbage’ sentiments instead of insights based on facts, evidence, and common sense.  Given that MHI has now twice told their members about their claims of momentum and then after that claim, the industry took a downturn is increasingly an apparent example of deception and misdirection.  The target? Those who may be trusting MHI for ‘fighting’ for their independents when their prominent members are apparently keen on consolidating their smaller competitors. ##
