April 10th, 2018 Comments off


UMH Properties (UMH:NYSE) has both touted and tempered the results and expectations that investors may have with respect to one of the largest players in the manufactured home community (MHC) sector.


To provide a balanced view of the latest reports on the manufactured home (MH) community REIT (Real Estate Investment Trust) – UMH Properties – to MH Industry Professionals and investors, one must take a step back and establish some context.

The Daily Business News is the only MH Industry trade media that tracks their and other stocks connected to manufactured homes.  We’ve done so for years. The closing numbers on the UMH stock last night are linked here.


 So MHProNews and has directly engaged with UMH Properties for years, as well as tracked reports about them by others.  MHProNews has interviewed UMH President Sam Landy a number of times.


The videos posted are both from 2017, but are revealing and relevant precisely as background.  They reflect their leadership’s thinking and company facts in brief.

MHProNews will follow up in the near term with a deeper data dive into UMH, and what that tells us about the trends in manufactured housing in general, as well as in the community sector.
