J:\\Exhibit-Hall-Registration-Area-2015-Tunica-Manufactured-Housing-Show-mhpronews-com-2.pngThe Hollywood Hotel and Casino – along with the neighboring Resorts Hotel and Casino – are the site for this years 2015 Tunica Manufactured Housing Show. Differing from the previous Harrah’s property, the Hollywood lives up to its name by featuring scenes and memorabilia from Hollywood movies and TV Shows. Titanic, Batman and Back to the Future, Ghostbusters and Elvis are among dozens of authentic screen items on display.

A photo report of some of those items will be posted on the Masthead.

The Exhibit Hall is located right next to the Registration area, which will take Tunica Show attendees past many of these movie and TV show items on display. This year’s show will feature some 85 new model homes on display. That display will be behind the Resorts Hotel. The second floor of the Resorts is also where the Seminars will be located.

As a trade show, the event is open only to industry professionals, it is not open to the general public. Industry pros who wish to attend and who haven’t yet registered can do so on site, bring your business card and a photo ID. For a map of the show and complete details, please click here. MHProNews.com will be at booth #73 in the Exhibit Hall. ##

Charleston Slowly Building Modular Homes

May 20th, 2013 Comments off

As the postandcourier informs MHProNews, modular homes have been slow to catch on in the Charleston, South Carolina area, although there are pockets in the city that have them, most notably north Charleston-based, Hunley Waters, which is all modular homes. Supplied by Nationwide Homes in Martinsville, Vir., the dwellings are priced in the low to mid $200k. Jacob’s Point in Hollywood and The Bend on Johns Island also have modular homes sited. The National Modular Housing Council says at the end of 2004 South Carolina ranked ninth in the nation in terms of modular homes on the ground.

Developers target Gen Y homebuyers

E:\1 SK MHMSM\Daily Buisness News\Urban_Land_Institue_ULI_Logo_posted_Manufactured_Home_Marketing_Sales_Management_MHMSM.com_MHProNews.com_.pngRealDeal reports on a recent study by the Urban Land Institute (ULI) which looks at the market impact of the nation’s eighty million echo boomers. Echo boomers, are age 18-32 and are also known as Gen Y and millennials. This group has 200 billion in annual buying power. Carol Ruiz, assistant chair of ULI’s Residential Neighborhood Development Council said, “It’s been said by experts that if your company doesn’t learn [how] to market to this group, you won’t have a company by 2020.” Leanne Lachman, governor of the Urban Land Institute and president of real estate consulting firm Lachman Associates, said “Its impact on real estate and the economy in general will be as striking and long-lasting as that of the baby boomers.” While many Gen Y’ers are renting presently, a ULI survey of 1,241 18 to 32 year-olds shows that most plan to buy a home within the next three to five years. “Developers realize the limitations [of Gen Yers] and are building smaller units to keep costs down, but are looking at design innovations that make [new] units more functional than larger units built in the past,” said Los Angelas developer Bob Champion, who is doing a Gen Y-friendly project in Hollywood.
