Back to Basics Will Boost Manufactured Home Sales, Sunday Morning Manufactured Home Industry Headline News Recap Aug 5 – Aug 12, 2018

August 12th, 2018 No comments
SundayMorningManufacturedHousingINdustryRecapDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews7.29.2018to8.5.2018

Trivia: note that the MHProNews home page on Sunday morning looks like that iPad screen, just moments before this weekly recap is published. We get our share of typos, but we do sweat the details, all for thousands of industry readers like you.

Let’s stress again that there are numbers of honorable operators and professionals in manufactured housing.

 

Some of those honorable souls would see “the basics” in a similar way that we at MHProNews would agree with too.

BackToBasicsWillBoostManufacturedHomeSales

But perhaps in an ironic way, the fact that not everyone understands what “the basics” are illuminates a key part of the factor-built home industry’s problem in the U.S.

For a the next few moments, by “Factory Built Homes,” we’re talking about all forms of off-site built production housing. Manufactured homes (MH), modular homes, other kinds of PreFab homes all frankly struggle with various levels of image and misunderstanding.

Rephrased, it’s an educational issue.

There are training programs in manufactured housing today, right? Numbers of trainers and coaches, some of whom grew up learning and repeating the late Grayson Schewpfinger’s methods. Some of that was fine, he had years of success. So, with no disrespect to the departed, some of that method was also demonstrably problematic.

We won’t run through a bunch of other trainers names, but the following is reality.

If the correct combination of

  • marketing,
  • public relations,
  • sales systems,
  • capital/lending, and
  • lobbying/legal efforts were made,

manufactured housing would arguably be 10 time’s larger than it now is. So too would other forms of U.S. factory building.  When this nation gets the challenges of factory-home building related issues right, the process of acceptance will arguably accelerate in other parts of the world too.  While something like 98.5 percent of our readers are U.S. or Canada, the other 1.5 percent are equally dedicated from other parts of the world.  What happens in MHVille matters.  People from across the globe check in daily here to find out the latest.

 

Proof?

The evidence for the fact that domestic manufactured home production could rise 1o fold, meaning by 1,000 percent, are all around us. One part of the evidence is found in the RV compared to MH report, linked further below.  Or check out the comparisons with the HousingEconomics data, further below.

So, we’ll point you to that and other reports, commentary, and analysis published this past week for more details and specifics.

 

Style, Substance, and Reality Checks

The RV compared to MH Report – linked below – gives a stark reality check for manufactured housing professionals and investors.

There’s a widely held school of thought that advises, “praise in public, correct in private.” That’s a fine norm. But when “private” efforts with the purveyors of the problems have failed repeatedly, a more direct approach is needed.

So that leaves the industry with a need for publicly calling out the problematic behaviors by certain professionals in key places. Where appropriate, that should also lead to remedial legal action, taken by private plaintiff’s attorneys, and/or public officials.

As the Daily Business News has stated for years, we publish reports on various lawsuits and regulatory issues because

1)    they occur,

2)    as a kind of morality tale. Don’t do what caused those people to get in hot water.  By the way, there’s a number of legally focused reports  last week, also found below.

While some are understandably uncomfortable with pointing out problems, what’s the alternative? Allowing another 15 years of the same often avoidable issues?  Again, look at the RV industry, and you’ll see why we’re so passionate about helping manufactured housing achieve what the RV industry has often done quite well.

 

They Did It Before…

Last week, this column asked the question, “They did it before, they can do it again.” Isn’t that obvious?

Reality can be uncomfortable.

But to deny reality is foolish. Check out Zig Ziglar’s article on problem solving, along with our other new and featured articles, linked here or from the hub, below.

Any given professional can make a difference in their own market. So, while collective efforts are useful on some matters, frankly the right “back to basics” protocols will profitably and ethically elevate results in almost any market.

That said, with no further adieu, let’s check out this week’s reports and commentary.

What is Leadership?”

In 2009 and 2010, the manufactured housing industry hit bottom. What that means is that thousands of professionals and investors in the industry today have never personally experienced an era of high performance.

Some believe that the only reason that manufactured housing hit a total of some 372,000 (+/-) new home shipments in 1998 think that was because of “easy financing.” While easy financing played a role, the reality check is that 372,000 (+/-) consumers believed that a manufactured home was the solution to their housing needs.

In several markets, one in three Americans who bought a new home, were buying a manufactured home in 1998.  Financing made that possible, but real people still made that choice.

About 6 million new or resale conventional housing units will be sold in 2018, according to the most recent National Association of Realtors (NAR) data.

Trading Economics said that the seasonally adjusted annual rate (SAAR) of multi-family housing starts in May 2018 was 404,000. So multifamily alone is about 4 times the number of HUD Code manufactured housing units, based upon recent data.

Trading Economics also said that new construction is running at an eleven year high.

Facts are facts. Facts are neutral measures of reality. Once facts and their causes are understood, then the opportunities can be tapped. What the above data means is that the typical retailer could potentially be selling 10x (+/-) more manufactured homes. a typical market

Meanwhile, manufactured housing – while up from its bottom – is lagging far behind.

When the U.S. needs 8.3 million additional, new affordable housing units (NAR), and conventional builders can’t keep up, nor match our price points, why does manufactured housing lag so badly?

MHProNews established the #1 audience in the industry by not shying away from tough topics. Thinkers come here, and then the doers get busy based upon new insights.  We believed the MH Industry would respond to actionable reality over platitudes.  Vision became reality.

The reasons are many. The Masthead post linked below looks at that in more detail. But here and now, let’s name a few.

 

  • A lack of objective analysis and critical thinking as to the causes and cures for the industry’s low market penetration.

IfIHadAnHourToSolveAProblemIdSpend55MinutesThinkingAboutthePRoblemAnd5MinutesThinkingAboutsolutionsAlbertEinsteinquoteMHProNews

  • A widespread failure to recognize what kind of thinking and behaviors led manufactured housing to this relatively low point. Think about the Einstein quotes, above and further below.

  • Trusting in the wrong “leaders.”

The prophet Hosea (in the “Hebrew Scriptures,” “Tanakh” or for Christians the “Old Testament” Scriptures) proclaimed “My people perish for a lack of knowledge!” (Hosea 4:6)

MyPeopleAreDestroyedForALackOfKnowledgeHosea4-6-ManufacturedHousingINdustryDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

Eternal principles matter. For those who make up their “own morality,” the result is inevitably chaos. Imagine if everyone made up their own “rules of the road” in driving. Driving would become far more hazardous and slow. A common set of authentic core principles is necessary in a just and productive society.

Another version of that same passage is translated as “My people perish for a lack of vision.”

ASatisfiedCustomerIsTheBestBusinessStrateegyOfAllMichaelLeBoueufBrainyQUoteDailyBuisnessNewsManufacturedHousingIndstryMHProNews

Mutual victories is the essence of how progress occurs. By contrast, Win-Lose tends towards avoidable conflict.

MH Industry professionals and investors must become ever-more people of sound, authentic principles. The good of the customer and society ought to be the ultimate good for sellers and service providers.  Mutual victories are how progress occurs.

There are needs for absolute principles in society, just as there are in math or science. Moral relativism doesn’t work in practice. The most just society imaginable would follow the 10 Commandments.

It has been some time since we’ve mentioned “inspirational dissatisfaction.”

WithoutDissatisfactionthereisNoGrowthWithoutHappinessTheeisNoLifeBehappilyDissatisfiedQuoteMHPronews

Inspirational dissatisfaction is part of critical – analytical – thinking, and thus how advancement occurs.

Some people misunderstand the nuanced meaning of the word, “critical.”

Critical thought is analytical thought.

The thinking of the past roughly 15 years will not take manufactured housing to its potential. There are those who for whatever short-sighted or selfish reasons are content with how things are.  Others posture a good talk, but if they routinely violate ethical principles, how can they be good role models or leaders?

The industry can achieve 500,000 to 1,000,000+ new HUD Code manufactured homes sustainably, given the current new housing demands. That’s a 5x to 10x increase. That should be the achievable goal of every independent industry professional.

Phase Two is about to begin, a future based upon realistic potential. More about Phase Two in the days ahead.

Leaders don’t wait for permission to change

Enough said for today on industry and what is leadership. Let’s dive into the news, reports, inspiration, and analysis from the week that was, which are part of the reality checks necessary for sustainable growth.

Mensch

 

We’re preparing an article about a Jewish gentleman known by scores in the Manufactured Home (MH) industry.

In mentioning our research to a Jewish MH industry colleague, he said, “Make sure you say that he was a mensch.”

Google’s online dictionary defines the word “mensch” like this.

MenschNobelPrizeofWordsTitleYouCantBestowOnYOurselfmensch

men(t)SH/

noun NORTH AMERICAN informal

  1. a person of integrity and honor

The Urban Dictionary says, “A mensch is a someone to admire and emulate, someone of noble character. The key to being “a real mensch” is nothing less than character, rectitude, dignity, a sense of what is right, responsible.”

Dictionary.com says a mensch is a “person of strength and honor,” 1907, from Yiddish, from German Mensch, literally “man, person,” from Old High German mennisco “human,” from Proto-Germanic adjective *manniska- “human” (see mannish

Everyone, including we non-Jews (“the goyim”), can learn much from the mensch we are fortunate enough to encounter in life.

 

Divisions

Among the things Tony and I discuss from time to time is how governments, by accident or design, can divide people who otherwise can joyfully coexist side-by-side, absent irksome meddling.

RC Williams, Daily Business News MHProNews

RC Willaims.

As R.C. Williams put it about a year ago, there are professional race-baiters. It’s a term used by others besides R.C., to describe individuals who literally make money stirring up racial discord, often using a non-profit, or other operation to collect money.

Political parties are useful in some ways, but it must also be acknowledged that political parties and their advocates have the tendency to divide people into “us vs. them.”

That can happen in professional groups too.

HowToBeAModernDayMenschThoughtcoDailyBusinessNewsMNProNEws

Scriptural scroll for rabbinic reading.

We’re not among those who believe that every religion is equal.  There are for example, Satanists, not many believers would put them on the same level as other groups. But we acknowledge that if God-Who-Created all gave man free will, then we must respect other’s right to choose.

That doesn’t imply that in politics, religion, economic or other distinctions that dialogue should be avoided.

Robust, frank dialogue that seeks truth in all its forms is to be celebrated.

So, respectful dialogue on issues that divide people ought to be embraced.

Absent absolute standards of right and wrong, how can we recognize what’s criminal, okay or what soars to the level of what is honorable?

To be a mensch – an honorable person who acts with integrity – whatever one’s personal or demographic data might be – requires standards.

 

Back to Basics

Many a coach has taken a struggle team “back to basics,’ Tony says. When something is awry, the basics ought to be among the first its to examine.  When the industry is still at historically low levels of sales, everything that contributes to that should be evaluated.

When Tony and I met nearly 15 years ago, Tony was working in the Houston metro area. He described an impressive manufactured housing retail operation that had lots of traffic. It had leading edge tech at that time. The display made every home look as if it was ground set.  Every home was staged to the 9s.

That retailer had multiple outlets.

But as impressive as that retail operation was, as high as their traffic was, their conversion ratios were low. Their sales were low.

They ended up going bankrupt.

Tony said much of their plan was fine, but when people aren’t buying in sufficient numbers to sustain a business, it’s an obvious sign that one or more things are either missing or are not sufficiently emphasized.

That retailer never became a client of his. For a fraction of the cost of their monthly overhead, they could have invested and won. They pinched pennies, and it cost them millions. It’s but one of numerous examples of ways that a firm can fail.

The word “integrity” has several meanings. One is “the state of being whole and undivided.”

HonestyIntegrityWordCloudEthicsTrustRespectSincereMonsoonLeadersManufacturedHousingMHProNEws

Honest people can fail. Dishonest people can succeed for a time, as some criminal enterprises prove.

But ultimately every operation that has integrity – in a free enterprise system – learns to serve the public in ways that benefit the buyer, while profiting the seller. It must be a mutual victory.

That win-win requires a foundation, the basics. Every company or organization needs it.

When there’s one or more mensch in the mix, a person of integrity and honor, the odds for sustainable success arguably goes up.

We salute all people who are honorable, and who act with integrity.

With no further adieu, let’s look at the week that was, in over two dozen headline reports.

Sunday Morning Manufactured Housing Industry Research, Reports, Headline News Recap 5.6.2018 to 5.13.2018

May 13th, 2018 Comments off

Millions could care less about politics. Many don’t want to talk about religion either. Especially those in business, who want to be able to serve as many people as possible, topics like that are almost a taboo.

Then there is “industry politics.”  Some only want to hear ‘good news.’  ‘We keep it positive’ was part of a longer thread of messages from an industry blogger.

Isn’t that like not wanting to know when it will rain, hail, snow – or if a hurricane is coming your way?

When the industry was on its heels in October of 2009, the year what’s known as MHProNews launched, there was a need then to get industry professionals to rally.  That required cheer leading, but it also required the facts that supported the reasons to be confident in our factory-built home – notably HUD Code manufactured home – industry.  But modular, prefab, conventional – all housing slid in those days

The automotive, RV, and conventional housing industry recovered more rapidly than manufactured homes did.  Why?  Document and fact laden Smoking Gun 3 will help answer that question.

MHProNews waited to see who among the industry’s trade voices would let the thousands who didn’t go to Las Vegas know that the MHI event was repeatedly disrupted by protestors. It’s on video. See that on the Masthead, because who else in the industry among industry trade talkers will bring you what is real?

We don’t want disunity,’ or ‘But we don’t want to hear negative things,’ some say.  Sure, we get that on the Daily Business News, but as an MD by training, I can tell you that patients don’t want to hear that they have a serious illness either.  Early treatment is the path to the cure.

The doctor, attorney, or account who tells you only what you want to hear can get sued for malpractice.  Don’t you want reliable information, not just happy talk?

As an MD and as a mother-to-be, I didn’t want to hear that our son Tamas wasn’t going to live.  But thank God, by prayer and daily action, he did live and while it required a complete change of plan for me personally, look at what a child who spent much of the first years of his life in a hospital looks like today.

DisplayModelTunicaManufacturedHousingShowTamasKovachAttendeeDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

Tamas Kovach (pronounced like “TahMash CoVatch), is part of the MHProNews/MHLivingNews family, with a Tunica Show attendee. Numerous such photos are taken during the course of the event.

Sacrifices were made in my career for the sake of our son.  Because we faced a tough reality in the face – through that combination of action and prayer – the payoff with our son was priceless. Almost everyone who meets him rapidly says, how special he is.  At the affordable housing focus group, our son went from table to table, telling joke after joke, to the delight of the attendees, while the video cameras, mics. and lights were being set up.

Every child is special.  Every adult is too.

On MHLivingNews, where the industry truly needs something positive, we do that better than anyone ever in the history of the industry.  But we also use that site to disprove time and again the false and misleading concepts that are held by millions.  It is done factually, based upon evidence, using as often as possible third party research, actual home owners, or other experts. No one else in the history of the industry has produced more such research, useful, and positive content.

The industry still needs a level of confidence building.  But it also needs reality checks and fact checks so that those who hide the facts – who hide the real news, and what’s going on behind the scenes – are shown to be who they are.

In the real world, people do bad things to each other, like it or not.  You have to be ready for that, as a mature adult.

In medicine, you change the prescription and the treatment according to the evidence and to suit the case of the patient.  We pivoted on our format here on MHProNews several times, to suit the evolving situation and to follow the evidence, while following the money.

There’s an affordable housing crisis, and manufactured housing might break the 100,000 shipment mark this year.  That, to borrow HUD Secretary Ben Carson’s phrase, is “ridiculous.”  See Greener and Stylish to better understand just how ridiculous some of what’s been going on in MHVille truly is.

Or on the Masthead, see a report you have yet to see anywhere else in manufactured housing industry trade news or commentary.

Or look at the modular survey for a different reality check.  Some want to run to mods as the solution.  We embrace all kinds of factory built housing.  But if someone thinks that “going modular” alone is the answer, that survey is a wake up call.

The latest MH Industry BIG DEAL is below, with details not found in the official press release.

Not just those, but every story we publish is carefully curated to inform – and yes, inspire – industry professionals.

That’s why you made and keep us the runaway #1 trade media in the industry. That’s what third party facts reveal. Thank you for that confidence.  We don’t ever intend to betray it, even if it means tell you some tough realities. From the biggest names in the industry, to the mom-and-pops, and all in between – plus public officials, investors and others – they all flock to read here by the thousands daily. That’s just a fact.

FactsDetailsMatterScrabbleLettersManufacturedHomeIndustryDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

On the nightly market report, we summarize headlines from CNN Money and Fox Business – about as different as you can get – just to give you a fuller sense of how dramatically different the same events are often covered.

We’ve done that for years.  It is called balance.  It’s called fairness. That’s what being truly pro-industry looks like.

Count on us to tell you what the evidence points to, what it means for industry professionals, so that you can better navigate your decisions and actions.  Then, you’ll understand this tag lines, MH “Industry News, Tips and Views Pros Can Use.” ©We Provide, You Decide.” ©

Sunday Morning Weekly Recap – Manufactured Housing Industry Headline News 4.22.2018 to 4.29.2018

April 29th, 2018 Comments off

SundayMorningManufacturedHousingIndustryHeadlineNewsWeeklyRecap4-22-2018To4-29-2018

 America is going through a time of upheaval. That’s not news, that’s reality.

 

When rapper Kanye West is making headlines for saying that its time for Blacks to get off the Democratic plantation, that’s a signal for just how turbulent the 2018 midterm elections could be.

Don’t count on a normal midterm cycle.  It’s a jump ball. Which major political party wants it the most, and is willing to work for the votes?

There’s a rising economy, but big time political shenanigans. Still, the landscape is potentially favorable to a manufactured housing comeback.

In MHVille, HUD Secretary Ben Carson has made the news several times this week, as has the U.S. Supreme Court, which will hear an MH related case.

CPFB, MHARR, and MHI are all in the news too.

A new production center is underway, and it’s going to be forged by and for independent retailers.

Another celebrity and her “mobile home mansion” [sic} is a headline on lifestyle and living focused MHLivingNews.

And a brave totter driver pulling a true mobile home in a tough spot on video are all among the headlines in the week that was.  Check ‘em ALL out…

…and then, last but not least.  The national news that impacts us all, in or out of manufactured housing.  The president’s approval numbers are rising.  Perhaps its because the economy has been steadily improving?  Or the various promises kept, with work being done on more?

Since the GOP Convention, the 45th president has had overwhelmingly bad press.  Love him, fear his agenda, or anything else along the spectrum, Donald J. Trump is as much our president as the 44 Chief Executives before him, going back to George Washington.  It’s worth listening to what he has to say about himself, his agenda, unfiltered. This video is from last night’s rally, courtesy of ABC News.

Now, let’s dive into industry news for the week that was.

The manufactured home industry grows both older, and younger.  We pause to remember the passage of ELS’ Howard Walker, J.D.  Our sincerest condolences to all of those touched by his loss.

 

In the headlines for the week that was, you’ll find new resources on MHLivingNews and MHProNews.

There’s more research, market reports, data, and news stories you won’t find anywhere else – or done as timely, with independence, industry understanding and depth – as you will on factory-built housing’s twin leading trade media.

Financing. Events. Market conditions. Producer intrigue…these and more are part of the week that just concluded. Among the big topics in MHVille during the week was one of the two big, full-scale annual trade shows in manufactured housing.

 

A full-scale trade show includes model homes on display from HUD Code, modular, ANSI and other factory built producers, along with exhibits, and seminars.

The Tunica Manufactured Housing Show for 2018 is in the rearview mirror.  Now that it is, there’s quite a bit of information to unpack, and report on for industry professionals.

Some of those reports have already been published, in the links below, along with other news that the links below will recap.

If you are not catching flak, you are not over the target” – is an Air Force maxim. Its reverse is equally revealing – “If you‘re catching flakyou‘re over the target.” – and it means you are likely near the mark or are scoring direct hits.

 

There has been a lot of flak from defenders of MHI and Berkshire this past week.

So there must be some target rich insights in the reports that follow, below.  The real heat is over the ‘new class of homes,’ and the concerns that the Nation has raised about Berkshire and their evidence and claims of monopolistic  practices.  Those are among our headlines below, but of course, there are a number of other topics, such as financing, markets, good news and more.

There will be a new Masthead that will be added to this, later today. An interesting new commentary by manufactured housing advocate, the Rev Donald Tye, Jr. has come in, which we plan to post this week.

 

For accuracy and in fairness, push back can come for reasons of honest disagreement. Accuse someone that is innocent of wrong-doing and you would naturally expect them to deny it. They may even do so in a heated manner.

Attorneys, politicians and professional debaters are taught certain debating tricks. One of them is the “straw man argument,” and it relies on readers or listeners missing one or more important details. Like a scare-crow mimics an actual human, hoping to scare crows away from a corn field, the strawman argument is similar to what was actually said, but has important differences.

What we’ve seen last week included the liberal use of the straw man, and other debaters’ tricks.

How many places in the manufactured housing industry can you find such a wide array of relevant reports, data, articles, research – plus the controversies and behind the scenes actions – that keep pros hoping?

 

Exactly one.

 

By 11:59 PM on Monday 2.26.2018, you need to have your comments into HUD, which can be submitted electronically.  Several articles on that topic are available this week, to help you formulate your own comments on how the manufactured home program could be improved.

Hundreds of comments, per reports, have already been sent in.  Even if you’ve submitted comments, there is nothing we see that prohibits supplemental comments. So make sure you’ve said all that you want to say, because this opportunity may not come again.

Let’s drive right into the headlines for the week in review.

Manufactured Housing Industry Headline News 1.21.2018 to 1.28.2018 Sunday Morning Weekly Review

January 28th, 2018 Comments off

ManufacturedHousingIndustryHeadlineNews1212018to1282018DailyBusinessNewsMHProNewsw

 

January has been one hopping month for news.

The past few days have brought there share of headlines and topics that are significant for the manufactured housing industry, and for all other kinds of factory builders too.

 

We expect two new stories to break this week.

The first will be about a focus group connected to manufactured housing, set in the context of the broader affordable housing crisis.

The next is an exclusive story about tornadoes and manufactured homes.  It could shake up the discussion for the industry in a variety of ways.  There are other developments we are tracking that we can’t yet mention at this time…

Our popular and ever-growing list of thousands of readers of emailed headline news updates will carry those and all other new stories we spotlight, analyze and publish.  If you and your team are not yet on that read=hot list, you can sign up at this à link here in seconds.  Third party MailChimp stats tell us our engagement is through the roof compared to all others in media and publishing.

Also, as we look ahead to the final days of January, and the first days of February, there’s a rumor floating about that the MHI initiative, and how questions may arise at their upcoming winter meeting. As regular Daily Business News readers recall, Richard “Dick” Jennison cancelledat the last minute” on his own presentation at Louisville.

It seems unlikely Jennison and Drucker will cancel at their own event.

Stay tuned…

 

There’s more talk floating out of D.C. and elsewhere in MHVille, but now, let’s look at the headline news, in review…
