Vanderbilt Mortgage & Finance, Inc. – Berkshire Hathaway (BRK) Brand Announces New Digital Tool to Grow Their Moat – Part of Manufactured Housing, National Pattern – Facts & Analysis; plus MHMarkets Updates


Stating the obvious can bring clarity. Vanderbilt Mortgage & Finance, Inc. (VMF) is a Berkshire Hathaway (BRK) owned brand. Berkshire is a conglomerate under decades of leadership by billionaire Warren Buffett. The connection between the various problems caused by monopolization is ironically spelled out by a White House document issued by the authority of one Joseph Robinette “Joe” Biden Jr. It is no surprise that people on the right oppose the man in the White House who leads what former CNN reporter turned WMAL pundit has called the “Biden Junta.” But people on the left, which includes self-proclaimed Biden voters, have been sounding the alarm too. Naomi Wolfe, Alan Dershowitz, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Glenn Greenwald are among numbers in that camp. Part of the claims being made against the Biden Administration, which people that span the political spectrum often muse is not actually being run by ‘President’ Biden himself, is that it is in the pocket of billionaires and big corporate interests. Meaning, Biden’s apt claims last summer against the threats and problems of monopolization run up against some of the very people that have and continued to back his de facto being in that top job. That brief outline raises the issue of bold paltering. Near the heart of that pack of billionaires and corporate interests are names like Warren Buffett and William “Bill” Gates III. Buffett led Berkshire Hathaway has preached “class warfare” for over 15 years, where his “class” declared war and is “winning.” Part of what Buffett has preached is the Castle and Moat method. It is against that backdrop that the report that follows below about Berkshire owned Vanderbilt (VMF), the captive lender to vertically integrated manufactured home producer and retailer Clayton Homes, is explored.

By way of that backdrop, MHProNews explored “The 3Bs” in the report below.


MHLivingNews previously highlighted how the declared pandemic of COVID19 was making Buffett and his fellow oligarchs far wealthier. “The Moat” is part of that backdrop of that story.



MHProNews also spotlighted the Biden antitrust announcement last summer.



Each of these reports, unlike numbers of mainstream media reports, have stood the test of time. Insights in them are as valid today as when they were first published. Why? Because facts, evidence, and a ‘follow the money trail’ common sense historic analysis tends toward sound reports and analysis.

What is occurring in manufactured housing can’t be fully understood outside of the broader context of these other realities.  That is why, as a sort of historic bonus, the video below will be introduced here. This may be a source for future references. Bad Decisions: The Joe Biden Story on Newsmax TV – was at the time their most watched episode, per their own Facebook post.  That video is posted below. It may be as or more interesting today than it was when it was first released.



Then, MHProNews and MHLivingNews have absolutely no rivals in our profession’s trade media for reporting on the role that Buffett’s “moat” methodology. That moat method can be factually connected to changes in manufactured housing from a once highly diverse business environment into one where a few Berkshire owned brands and their corporate allies at the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI) have consolidated much of manufactured housing. Several of these MHI brands openly state that they plan to consolidate more.



It is with the above foundation of moats that Vanderbilt’s recent press release is being shared below and examined after their pitch. It must be noted that by publishing their claims, MHProNews is not endorsing VMF, nor Clayton, much less Berkshire or Buffett. But as Sun Tzu said:

Know the enemy and know yourself; in a hundred battles you will never be in peril. When you are ignorant of the enemy, but know yourself, your chances of winning or losing are equal. If ignorant both of your enemy and yourself, you are certain in every battle to be in peril.”

― Sun Tzu, The Art of War, per GoodReads.

Additional Information, More MHProNews Analysis and Commentary

It would be a mistake to think that MHProNews has ever been in this battle to save the best parts of manufactured housing’s legacy alone. Indeed, there have been a range of tipsters and sources from inside MHI, inside MHI member brands, including Clayton and their lending units. Then there have been public officials and published reports that have been part of the rich tapestry that has made our industry-leading reports possible. Certainly, the Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR) absolutely must be named, because their leaders have been fighting for independents – and by extension, consumers and employee interests – for decades.  The MHARR take on Biden and several of these key issues is uniquely highlighted in the report linked below.




Barring the unforeseen, by tomorrow afternoon the MHARR report on the latest manufactured housing data and trends will be published on MHProNews. Until then, the report linked below stands as the runaway most factual and evidence-based research that sheds light on why manufactured housing has been underperforming.



It can be summed up in the word – consolidators. Consolidators are obviously in charge at MHI. They can and do palter about having an agenda for “all segments” of the industry, but that is arguably a bald-faced lie. If MHI were authentically working for all segments, then their own words would have long ago come true. Namely, that the rising tide would raise all boats.



But the fact that MHI keeps posturing by ‘saying’ the right things, but has failed for years to take the legal steps necessary to make their words meaningful speaks volumes. This is why they are phony with a capital P (or if you go by the name of lunch bucket Joe, phony with a capital F…).



MHProNews has in its possession a report from attorneys on the antitrust issue. As a teaser, they say that what the Biden administration is doing is at best illusory. MHProNews essentially predicted that last summer, shortly after Biden made the seemingly impressive pitch as to why monopolization is harmful to employees, consumers, and smaller businesses. Among the keys that unlock what is occurring in America and our industry must be a clear understanding of “paltering.” Of posturing for effect. Of what the Capital Research Center (CRC) aptly describes as “Deception and Misdirection.”

Any number of quotable quotes fit. But among them are these two that MHProNews has periodically used for some time in various forms.


There are no coincidences. When MHProNews/MHLivingNews ‘connects the dots,’ it is done in part because there are no coincidences.

Whatever MHI was in years gone by they no longer are anything more than a front group for consolidators. It is an open question if that may have been a reason why Chris Stinebert left that trade group with a polite slap at their own faces.


Chris Stinebert’s comment only makes sense if one believes that the industry’s largest trade association – MHI – was somehow failing in those categories. Note that on the resale front, that could also be an oblique slam on MHVillage. When the Stinebert parting message is carefully considered, knowing that he is said to have signed an NDA – non-disclosure agreement – the comments are a polite slap in the face of the trade group he was leaving.


But to grasp the malevolence of the moat the two would-be trust-buster sources linked below should be carefully understood too.

Ironically, Skyline Champion’s own investor pitch-deck provides ample evidence for manufactured housing industry underperformance. That same pitch-deck further provides evidence that Mergers and Acquisitions are a key part of their business model. What is there in such revelations that Birch and Williams miss? Bear in mind, that they are mere stand-ins who voluntarily raised their hands in defense of Berkshire and MHI firms like Skyline Champion.

Speaking of those sources, MHProNews has been given a document and obtained others that relate to how one of MHI’s erstwhile ‘housing alliance coalition’ allies has backstabbed manufactured housing is in hand. We plan a report on those new documents in the near term.

You won’t find hardly any of this on other manufactured housing industry trade media. Why not? Just look at their apparent – and often self-proclaimed ties – to MHI. And keep in mind that using nonprofits is also part of the Buffett moat methods. Who said? Look at what Kevin Clayton said in our ground-breaking report below.


Warren Buffett’s “Moat” per Kevin Clayton, CEO Clayton Homes Interview Transcript, Video – Affordable Housing and Manufactured Homes

Then it all gets summed up by someone who has had a ring-side seat to Buffett “philanthropy.” Danny Glover has sat on a Buffett nonprofit board. It is with that in mind that his brief, but now penetratingly insightful comment below comes into focus.


Danny Glover quote from the fascinating video documentary, Shadows of Liberty, you can stream it or watch a version of it at this link here.

Schmitz and his colleagues are correct. Monopolies deploy an array of methods to obscure their pernicious effects. But by doggedly following the facts, evidence, connecting the dots and linking it all up to our industry’s underperformance, there are no other trade sources that can hold a candle to the insights learned here.





It is for that reason that the new Masthead merits your attention. The ancient Latin expression still holds true: scientia potentia estKnowledge is “potential” power. Why only potential? Because knowledge must ultimately be properly put to work!

Weeks before others in the mainstream media began to flash their ‘inflation warnings,’ MHProNews added first the top, then later the second notice above. When someone has even a basic understanding of the principles of economics, ‘inflation’ was predictable. The question is, will hyper-inflation follow? There are voices on both sides of that debate.
