Today’s Big Movers

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

Uber is releasing new information about Uber Air, an ambitious plan to launch a fleet of autonomous flying taxis in two years,” says CBS News. “Bianna Golodryga gets a first look at the design models that will be on display at Tuesday’s Uber Elevate Summit. She also speaks with Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi and Chief Product Officer Jeff Holden.”

Why does this prospect potentially matter to manufactured housing?

As the nation’s population is mostly urban and suburban – and if HUD continues to fail to enforce manufactured housing’s “enhanced preemption” – then modes of transportation that could speed people from exurbs into the metro are promising for manufactured housing growth.
