Publicly traded companies often prepare graphically rich, and insight laden information in their investor relations (IR) presentations.
This snapshot here is from UMH Properties (UMH) latest IR presentation.
UMH is one of the largest community operators in the U.S. They are identified as a Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) in the manufactured home community (MHC) space.
UMH also operate some retail centers, which their president Sam Landy, JD, mentions as underperforming in video interviews conducted last year. Those videos with their CEO are linked below.
Their latest presentation presents some information that is intended to highlight the opportunities and appeal of manufactured homes in the current economic and housing climate.
UMH’s presentation naturally provides reasons why they believe that they’re particularly well suited for an investor to consider.
It should be noted, as a disclosure, that the Daily Business News’ parent company and owners hold no stock in any manufactured home operation.
There is steady growth in recovery of the industry, as the charts below reflects.
But the realities about manufactured housing indeed should reveal reasons why the industry ought to be roaring.
RVs are outselling manufactured homes by some 5 to 1. Yet, even the lowest cost towable RVs are costlier per square foot than a typical manufactured home. RVs are a luxury item for most, while manufactured homes are a permanent housing option.
The new 2018 Up for Growth study reveals just a great the need is for new homes. For more on that, and the realities of why manufactured housing has not yet robustly tapped those new home sales opportunities, click the related report, linked above. ## (News, analysis, and commentary.)
