Celebrating Manufactured Housing’s 43rd Birthday, Born June 15, 1976

June 15th, 2019 Comments off



To stem the tide of fake news, several things are useful or necessary. As the article linked here quoted, “facts are stubborn things.”



Part of the solution to fake news is authentic, factual, evidence-based reports and analysis. When over half the country lists ‘fake news’ as one of the most important problems facing America, that is both crisis as well as an opportunity in disguise.

The phrase “enquiring minds want to know” long predates a tabloid that turned that into a tag line. Whatever their intent, the phrase is a compelling and true statement. 

From the first day since we launched this professional site which is now called MHProNews, it has had a simple goal in mind. To help fuel the manufactured housing industry with the insights and resources needed to reach the industry’s true, sustainable, and honorable potential. We believed from the start in mutual victories. Good businesses benefit the home seeking public. Buyer and seller alike ought to benefit from every transaction. Win-win-win must successfully overcome the sources of the win-lose mentality. 

There will be a series of special reports here on MHProNews and on our sister site, MHLivingNews this weekend and the days ahead. Stay tuned.

Until then, let’s celebrate the 43rd anniversary of HUD Code manufactured homes by recommitting ourselves as professionals to earning an honest profit. Earn as much profit as you honestly and ethically can or want. But separate yourself from black hat operations that earn profits in devious, illegal, or demonstrably underhanded ways.

The vast majority of the home seeking public doesn’t worry about our HUD Code manufactured home industry’s politics.  In order to understand why the industry is underperforming, one must carefully consider what the public thinks or sees, not just what professionals think, say, or do. 

Public perception isn’t the only hang-up, as the related reports below the byline and notices makes clear. 

Facts are stubborn things. But leaders grasp nettles. Nettles sting when not handled correctly, but also have medicinal qualities when properly used. You don’t cure a problem by ignore its root causes.

The good news of manufactured housing can break through the noise. How is that accomplished?  In part by using real news, clear analysis, common-sense and evidence-based commentary that must clearly debunk and/or replace fake news.


Manufactured Housing Professionals, HUD Secretary Ben Carson, Must Promote These Two Words


 That can begin with the two words hinted at in the headline in the post above. But that article doesn’t just hint at those two words, it makes the case with brevity and clarity. For more, see the related reports, below.

 There’s always more at MHProNews, as the related reports will reveal.  Happy 43rd birthday to HUD Code manufactured housing, our home owners, and professionals.  Note that the first link in the related reports is to an industry veteran who has lived through the trailer house, mobile home, manufactured home evolution.  It is about 8 minutes of must-viewing for anyone who truly wants to understand this industry.
