Triad formally closed their deal with ECN on December 29, 2017.



The significance for manufactured housing is this. Unlike some lenders that are focused on ‘buying deep’ – meaning making loans on lower FICO scores – Triad has historically been an “A” paper lender. The profile of the Triad buyer is more like the credit profile of a conventional site-built home.

Warren Warns, Obamacare Must Go

September 19th, 2013 Comments off

Oracle of Ohama Warren Buffett says Obamacare should be eliminated because the average citizen will suffer the most without changes to the plan. He adds health care costs need to be controlled before providing health insurance to everyone, otherwise continuing as we are will lead to less competition. As notes, the billionaire investor was an early supporter of Obama, but compares health care costs to a tapeworm eating our “economic body.” MHProNews knows Buffett is Chairman of the Board of Berkshire Hathaway, parent company to Clayton Homes, the U.S.’s largest producer of manufactured and modular homes, as well as Vanderbilt Mortgage and Finance and 21st Mortgage Corp., both lenders to consumers of factory-built homes.

And Now—Heeeerre’s Warren!!

May 3rd, 2013 Comments off

The esteemed Warren Buffett, Oracle of Omaha, the eminence of income, who worked hard and smart and honestly to make his wealth, according to wallstreetcheatsheet, in an essay published online by Fortune magazine remarks on the incredible economic growth in this country since 1776, and the future importance of gender equality in the marketplace. He says the rule of law, capitalism, and democracy was the groundwork that led to the fastest generation of wealth in the history of the world, accomplished while half of our brain power, namely women, were excluded from decision-making roles. He says, “This behavior — the historic relegation of women to the sidelines — flies in the face of what rational actors in a capitalistic economy should do. There are any number of selfish reasons why those at the top of the food chain would wish to reduce competition for those few, cherished top spots. But at the end of the day, opening up the competitive field to all participants will yield the best results. The closer that America comes to fully employing the talents of all its citizens, the greater its output of goods and services will be. We’ve seen what can be accomplished when we use 50% of our human capacity. If you visualize what 100% can do, you’ll join me as an unbridled optimist about America’s future.” As MHProNews knows, Buffett is Chairman of Berkshire Hathaway, the parent company of Clayton Homes, the largest producer of manufactured homes in North America.
