Texas Commission Talks West Texas Oil Boom, Plus Manufactured Home Market Updates

July 10th, 2018 No comments

CNNDowJonesIndustrialAverage7102018ManufacturedHousingIndustryDailyBusinessNewsMHproNewsWest Texas. South Dakota. Louisiana. Oklahoma. These are just some of the places that oil, natural gas, and energy have and are creating or supporting jobs that have sold thousands upon thousands of factory built housing units. Tonight’s spotlight focus is an interview with the Texas Commissioner who keeps his eye on the oil industry there.

 

If you’re new, already hooked on our new spotlight feature – or are ready to get the MH professional fever – our headline report is found further below, just beyond the Manufactured Housing Composite Value for today.

 

The ever evolving Daily Business News market report sets the manufactured home industry’s stocks in the broader context of the overall markets.  It’s an example of “News through the lens of manufactured homes, and factory-built housing.” ©

It just makes sense. Because like it or not, what moves the markets effects manufactured housing too.

Part of this unique feature provides headlines – from both sides of the left-right media divide – that saves readers time, while underscoring topics that may be moving investors, which in turn move the markets.

Readers say this is also a useful quick-review tool that saves researchers time in getting a handle of the manufactured housing industry, through the lens of publicly-traded stocks connected with the manufactured home industry.

This is an exclusive evening or nightly example of MH “Industry News, Tips and Views, Pros Can Use.” ©  It is fascinating to see just how similar, and different, these two lists of headlines can be.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

Today is the 4th day of rising markets, as investors are beginning to shrug of the tough talk on trade wars.  But will the announcement of another $200 billion in tariffs targeting China announced late today impact traders?  Time will tell.   A spotlight on Sun Communities is found, linked below.

Forbes Boast$ about Manufactured Home Community Operation

But tonight’s focus is West Texas oil.

Texas Railroad Commissioner Ryan Sitton on efforts to boost pipeline capacity to keep up with drilling at the Permian Basin.  Sitton is the Texas official charged with keeping tabs on the oil industry, and he admits that the supply is outpacing oil pipeline capacity.  He says that that will be corrected through construction in the next 12 to 24 months.

 

As crude oil prices rise over a range of issues, including tensions with Iran, and Russia, U.S production will be ever more important. Another item to keep an eye on for the industry will be when activity starts taking place in ANWAR – which was opened up by legislation enacted by the Trump Administration. That might, just might, cause a wave of factory built homes moving “north to Alaska” at that time.

U.S. vs China, SCOTUS Pick, Biz Effects, and MH Market Updates

July 9th, 2018 No comments

CNNmoney7.9.2018ManufacturedHomeStocksMarketsReportsMHProNewsBefore diving into tonight’s feature, millions will tune in tonight to see who President Donald J. Trump will nominate to replace retiring Justice Anthony “Tony” Kennedy on the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS). Some have speculated on a variety of supposed top contenders. An interesting op-ed by Senator Orin Hatch May provide a clue, when it uses the pronoun “she” to describe the pending nominee. 

According to the often-announced plan, sometime after 9 PM ET, the nation will know.

That said, beyond the data for today’s tracked manufactured home industry connected equities, the focus for tonight’s is what Fox Business called a “risky” trade war.

Today’s MH Market Spotlight Report –

It may surprise some to learn that a third-party research found that Fox News is roughly a 50-50 split on coverage that is for-or-against the president and Trump Administration policies.

Seriously?

While many Fox News and Fox Business hosts are pro-POTUS Trump, not all are.

Further, many of the shows feature panel discussion, where they bring in Democratic, or so-called RINO, and “never Trump” backers.

 

The video above is an example of a report that is largely negative about the Trump trade gambit. It isn’t until the very end of the video that you get a sense of why the president is taking this tactic in the first place.

The interview with Forbes’ Steve Forbes is also tentative about the issue of trade.

But there are voices in the business world that think that this is precisely the right strategy, and it is the right time, because there is a nice cushion fueled by more jobs, rising wages, lower taxes, more common sense regulations and the like.

Time will tell.  But as Marty Lavin, or CNBC’s Cramer have observed, the time is right for this battle. If not now, when will the U.S. stand up to China’s theft of intellectual property, or other problematic trade practices?

Manufactured Housing National Research Report, Marcus & Millichap Manufactured Home Industry Performance Data

May 2nd, 2018 Comments off

MarcusMillichapManufacturedHousingNationalResearchReport

Potential for Higher Returns Lures New Buyers, Generating Competition; Supply of For-Sale Listings Remains Tight, Boosting Prices,”
Marcus & Millichap (M&M) National Report, First Half of 2018

 

A new research report has been provided by brokerage firm Marcus & Millichap to the Daily Business News.

For those in MHVille who don’t know Marcus & Millichap Inc (MMI), the following description is from their website.

NationalManufacturedHousingRegionsSubregionsMapMMIManufacrturedHomeCommunityIndustryDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

Powered by Culture: George M. Marcus and William A. Millichap revolutionized the real estate brokerage industry. Marcus & Millichap was designed to go far beyond simply facilitating real estate transactions. It was developed as an entire system dedicated to maximizing value for real estate investors.”

As part of our ongoing periodic series on the true state of the manufactured housing industry, the following summary provided to MHProNews by MMI.  How good are they?  Here’s what a market snapshot tells you investors think of MMI.  Money talks.

MarcusMillichap(MMI)GoogleTickerManufacturedHousingIndustryDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews600

 

Investment Highlights

Buyers are flush with capital amid a scarce supply of available listings throughout most areas of the nation, which has resulted in more off-market transactions. Heightened demand is producing aggressive pricing that keeps cap rates steady despite the rise in interest rates.

In some areas of the country, for-sale listings are further reduced by resident groups in manufactured home communities exercising their right of first refusal and making offers to purchase the park.

PopulationShift65PlusMMIManufacturedHousingINdustryDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

Exchange buyers remain active. Many of these investors are trading out of other commercial real estate product types, such as apartments, and are unfamiliar with owning a manufactured home community. In many instances the potential for higher returns is luring them to consider park ownership and they are willing to pay a premium to own, helping to drive prices higher.

Communities on well and septic are still slower to trade. Some buyers are searching for a value-add opportunity in parks that have the potential to be hooked up to these city services.”

MarcusMillichapListingsClosedPropertiesManufactuedHomeCommunitiesMHousingIndustryDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

The MMI research and data reflects the growing demand for manufactured home communities that industry professionals have been reporting for several years, as was noted in last night’s snapshot report on RHP Properties.

Manufactured Home Communities Giant RHP Propertie$ Deal, plus Manufactured Housing Industry Connected Stocks, Market, Data Updates

 

East Region Mid-Atlantic Trends Vacancy:

Strong demand for affordable housing produced a 70-basis-point reduction in vacancy to an average of 6.6 percent during 2017. Vacancy was especially tight in Baltimore at 2.5 percent. Rents: The average rent rose 3.8 percent in 2017 to $381 per month, bolstered by a 5.1 percent surge in Baltimore. Rents have climbed 14 percent over the last five years.”

Tony, congratulations on 8 fantastic years and cheers to many more!” said Stephanie McAnuff.

In August, 2009, the groundwork for what has become MHProNews and MHLivingNews was started.

Thanks to social media, such as LinkedIn, words of congratulations and encouragement are coming in daily.

While many keep it simple, “Congrats!” “Thank you for all you do,” or “Kudos!” – some come in with more detailed, and specific words of encouragement.  One example is below.

Stephanie is with Marcus & Millichap, “The McAnuff Group,” which specializes in “Real Estate Investing,” per her LinkedIn profile page.

McAnuff said, “Thanks for the great information you put out in the industry. Big fans! Please feel free to share my thoughts about your work as a quote!”

McAnuff elaborated. “We have previously shared your information and articles with live links and credits back to you in our MHP Weekly and our news blog.”

These twin platforms are always about team work, and that includes:

  • Clients and sponsors, such as Sunshine Homes, MHARR, New Durham Estates, Credit Human, Triad Financial, ROC USA, and others.

Professionals and associations that share their time and expertise in crafting thoughtful responses to specific issues.

Many of those are found on the Industry Voices guest blog, and/or are quoted in articles, such as (no order of importance implied), John Bostick, Donald Tye, Jr., Bob Crawford, Stan Posey, Richard Nodel, Frank Rolfe, Lindsey Bostick, Marty Lavin, Tim Connor, Mark Brunner, Jay Crawford, Jim Ayotte, Mary McBrady, JD Harper, Deanna Fields, DJ Pendleton, Sheila Dey, Don Glisson, Betty Whitaker, Ron Breymier, David Murdock, and scores of others.

The industry will only advance to its full potential when more of the root issues are successfully addressed.  Change takes place in local markets. Change must be location specific.

 “My 80 percent friend is not my 20 percent enemy,” said Ronald Reagan. Most industry pros, like McAnuff, find news and information that ‘resonates.’

Actively retired Donald Tye Jr. is one of the advocates for a budding movement to increase the understanding, acceptance, benefit to consumers, investors, businesses and localities made uniquely possible by today’s manufactured homes.

Tye reminded us that change for our industry is akin to the civil rights movement.  He recalls how Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. peacefully worked for change.  Organized efforts to confront ignorance, prejudices, and the forces holding the industry back are all necessary, Tye says.

On behalf of our team and sponsors, we thank you and all who make this possible and who log on daily by the thousands, and have for years. As more work together on the root causes of issues, the best is truly yet to come. ## (Announcements, commentary, thank you.)

Two Age-Restricted Manufactured Home Communities sold to Kingsley

August 22nd, 2015 Comments off

m_and_m_sale_of_tarpon_springs__mhc__july_22_2015Kingsley Management Corp. of Provo, Utah has acquired two Manatee County, Florida 55+ manufactured home communities (MHC) for $27.8 million. The 244-home site Palm Bay was sold for $13.1 million, while the adjacent 235 home site Colonial Mobile Manor went for $14.7 million. Both communities, according to businessobserverfl, are in Palmetto, FL, and were controlled by William Tanenbaum.

Palm Bay and Colonial both have clubhouses from the 1970s, and Palm Bay contains over 100 recreational vehicle sites as well as a swimming pool and shuffleboard courts.

Kingsley was represented by Marcus & Millichap’s Kyle Baskin and Jonathon McClellan from their Cleveland office. Kirk Felici is M&M’s broker of record in Miami. Baskin commented, “Given the current market conditions, and the demand for larger, age-restricted communities throughout the nation, we feel that both buyer and seller capitalized on this unique opportunity.”

As MHProNews noted in a story Aug. 14, 2015, Kingsley was represented by M&M in its purchase of Southwind Mobile Home Park in Palm Harbor for $18.2 million, another age-restricted MHC. ##

The 213 home site, age-restricted manufactured home community (MHC), which previously sold for $7 million in 1999, is set on 28 acres and contains only multi-section homes with paved driveways and carports.

Amenities include a commercial kitchen inside a large community building with library, billiards, cards and exercise rooms. Outdoor is a heated swimming pool, a lake with fountains, shuffleboard, horseshoes and a community greenspace.

With a price equating to $85,446 per site, Dan Mulkey of Marcus & Millichap’s Tampa office, who handled the transaction, says it is one of the most expensive MHCs he has seen outside of Broward Bounty, which is just north of Miami. Southwind was 100 percent occupied at the time of the sale. ##
