The headline report is potentially one of them, but first let’s consider some other points.
An aspect of the HUD Code manufactured home industry’s woes the years of self-evidently ineffective and arguably problematic behavior by the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI).
There will be more on that topic in special report in the near term.
Affordable housing is more in demand than ever. A third-party data-laced and quotable quote rich report that makes that timely point is found in the article linked below.
So much for MHI’s ‘leadership?’
While RVs and mainstream housing are surging back, where is a similar move toward more manufactured homes?
Mainstream conventional housing, according to information from third-party sources as noted in reports like the next link reveals. It seems that mainstream conventional housing, despite the higher costs, is apparently recovering more rapidly than ‘affordable’ manufactured homes.
But beyond internal issues, there are certainly public policy as part of that mix.
There are those who are ‘on record’ in Congress from both sides of the two-major party political divide who have taken favorable stances toward affordable manufactured housing. Some of them are on the list that will follow further below. Rephrased, this list shouldn’t be construed as a ‘tag’ toward their stance toward manufactured housing.
Rather, the list is what it says it is. The Intercessors for America posted the list further below.
Stating the obvious, the author, speaker, and documentary filmmaker has supporters and detractors. As the NZ Herald said, “Trevor Loudon was Act Party vice-president from 2006 to 2008…Loudon’s view of the world will have its supporters and critics.” On Amazon, his book is rated 4.2 stars.
Loudon’s list will be our featured focus, which is found beyond the left-right headline recap today. It is also beyond 2 of the 3 market summary graphics and the quotable quotes tonight. The final manufactured home specific stock values at the closing bell is found below the featured focus and related reports.
