21st Mortgage Corporation Manufactured Housing Loan Data, Per Federal Sources

June 25th, 2019 No comments

21stMortgageCorpLogoFederalManufacturedHousingDataCFPBLogoBerkshireHathawayClaytonHomesSisterCompanyMHProNews

The following facts is the most recent summary of information available currently from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) on HMDA data for 21st Mortgage Corporation loans on HUD Code manufactured homes.

 

21st is part of the metro-Omaha, NE based Berkshire Hathaway owned family of brands and is based in Metro Knoxville, TN.

Unlike Clayton Homes and Vanderbilt Mortgage and Finance (VMF), as thousands of manufactured housing industry professionals know, they ‘serve’ independent retailers and communities, as opposed to Clayton Homes directly.

That they like or prefer making loans on Clayton Homes built product should be evident from the report linked below.  But there are good reasons for them to make loans on other producer’s brands, because it arguably provides them with an upper hand, causing other producers of manufactured housing to have a degree of dependence and thus leverage.

In a series of direct quotes in context, a document from 21st Mortgage signed by Tim Williams, and video recorded comments by Kevin Clayton, these all line up to demonstrate how independent retailers, communities, and producers – among others – where purportedly harmed by action that could be deemed an antitrust violation. 21st, Clayton, and their association mouthpiece, MHI, and their outside attorney have all been asked to comment on these facts and allegations.  They’ve repeatedly declined comment.  https://www.manufacturedhomelivingnews.com/bridging-gap-affordable-housing-solution-yields-higher-pay-more-wealth-but-corrupt-rigged-billionaires-moat-is-barrier/

 

Here is the 21st Mortgage Corporation HMDA data from federal sources noted at the bottom of the graphic.

 

21stMortgageCorpHMDAData

 

You can see by looking at our ‘almost midnight’ report from 6.24.2019 that Vanderbilt made FHA loans, but 21st originated none. That is federal confirmation of a prior news tip that we received from 21st personnel on an off-the-record basis. Those middle management type sources were not able to articulate an answer as to why 21st would stop making such loans, but why VMF would continue to offer them?

You can compare 21st and with VMF’s data, by accessing the report from the linked text-image box below.

 

Vanderbilt Mortgage and Finance Manufactured Home Loan Origination Data, Per Consumer Financial Protection Bureau

 

As with other federal data, compiling and sorting the information has a degree of lag time.  A more complete snapshot from 2015 is available below.  Note that Triad Financial, due to the way they are structured, is not reflected in the screen capture of the federal dataset below. But they are larger that several of the lenders shown, while smaller than 21st, VMF, or Wells Fargo, per sources. It is therefor interesting to note that the top 3 lenders for the year below all have direct ties to Berkshire Hathaway, which owns a sizeable stake in Wells Fargo.

Download and open this graphic to see it full size, which is more than double the size visible now.

Both VMF and 21st qualify for the 10/10 rule established by FHA, which made Berkshire Hathaway the dominating lender in that realm.  Was that 10/10 rule threshold a coincidence?  Or was it useful to Berkshire and a sign of some darker relationship that bears federal scrutiny?

Marty wasn’t the first to say these quotable quotes, but that he said them and has such close ties to MHI, GSEs, the ‘big boys’ and manufactured home lending should cause the thoughtful reader and inquiring mind to pause and wonder.

 

It is worth mentioning that Harvard’s Eric Belsky said that credit was the lifeblood of housing.  That was dramatically demonstrated by the mortgage/credit/housing crisis of 2008, but which straddled other years.

 

EricBelksyManufacturedHousingIndustryManufacuredHomeManufacturedHousingInstituteResearchDataAffordbleHousingMHProNewsDailyBuisnessNews575

Why did Belsky miss his predicted date? Because it came before Buffett’s entry into MH? See the attorney-reviewed report linked here.

The Government Sponsored Enterprises (GSEs) of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have used manufactured housing’s prior credit crisis that began to become apparent with the slide in sales, shipments, and production in 1999, but accelerated into the early 2000s.

 

BloombergShipmentProductionGraphicManufacturedHousingIndustryDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

April data reflects month 8th of the downturn, with nary a whimper from MHI or the big boys. Why? 

While losses in manufactured housing loan portfolios was significant, as those who recall Greentree, Conseco, Associates and other lenders who essentially vanished from the manufactured housing scene as a result of the meltdown in MHVille that began to be evidenced in 1999.  By comparison to conventional housing losses in 2008, while significant to our industry, it was as an insider called it a “pimple on an elephant’s ass.” See that comment and more from 2017 in the report linked below.

 

“An Elephant Ass,” Understanding GSEs, Duty to Serve, Manufactured Home Lending

 

Why did lending return to conventional housing but not to manufactured homes?  Bear in mind that FHFA data in 2018 reflected that manufactured housing can appreciate.  HUD Secretary Carson has pointed to that fact in some of his 2019 talks touting the potential of manufactured homes.

 

 

Democratic lawmakers have pressed the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) to investigate Clayton Homes and their affiliated lenders.  Several of them are 2020 hopefuls.  That report can be accessed via the text-image box below. 

 

Senate Democrats – Including 2020 Presidential Contenders – Ask CFPB Protect Consumers Against Predatory Lenders — Point Finger at Clayton Homes, Berkshire Hathaway Lending

 

The non-partisan Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR) is asking for Congress to investigate what they have deemed is the failed roll-out of the GSEs of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac’s Duty to Serve or DTS. One example of their concerns is reflected in their report, linked below.

 

MarkWeissDTSQuoteManufacturedHousingAssocRegulatoryReformMHARRDailyBusinessNewsMHproNews

George F. Allen is increasingly seen as compensated MHI surrogate. Allen has pointed out the obvious, that MHARR is a sponsor of our website. But that’s out in the open, MHARR has banner ads here. What Allen fails to mention is that MHI used to sponsor MHProNews too. So too did Clayton Homes, and 21st Mortgage.  Our coverage of these issues began before MHARR became a sponsor, and while Berkshire brands and others with ties to MHI were still sponsors.  That’s evidence that our reports have been based upon our LLC’s own research and work, without favor.  We follow the facts, evidence, trends, common-sense, and the money trail. We give others an opportunity to respond to concerns. That’s arguably why our audience size and engagement levels on MHProNews dwarfs Allen’s and MHInsider’s combined. We are by far the #1 largest and most-read in MHVille.

Proud to be an American

As we watched the release of Josh Holt and his Venezuelan wife, the ‘sound track’ of the Lee Greenwood song that includes the lyrics above was playing in our heads.

First, the events of last night, courtesy of the White House press room to the Daily Business News.

America is making a come-back.

The White House provided us the letter below, the day it was released to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

PresidentDonaldJTrumpLettertoKimJongUnNorthKoreanLeaderMay242018MHProNews

To see this letter full size, click here.

If you recall, 3 days ago, the president got tremendous push back from numerous talking heads for cancelling his summit with the North Korean leader via that letter.  But events since then have once more proven that POTUS Trump was correct.  It was walk-away power. It was the art of the deal.

Make no mistake.  On the international stage, this American revival is due in part because the 45th president is willing to flex U.S. muscle. That muscle is due to the military and their supportive services, including intelligence.

That muscle would not have much meaning, absent the history of sacrifice of those who gave their life for American freedom, and that of other nations. That’s what Memorial Day commemorates, the fallen who gave their life. Recall that Memorial Day is distinct from Veteran’s Day.

President Donald J. Trump’s leadership is why we saw the signing of the S 2155 bill last week that gave the manufactured housing industry relief.

Here’s that Lee Greenwood video, the lyrics are found on this page, and the video has a few screen shots of manufactured homes. Can you spot them?

 

 

MHProNews, the Daily Business News, and MHLivingNews in Mainstream Media News

The Daily Business News, MHProNews, and MHLivingNews have all been mentioned on mainstream media sites in the past couple of weeks, the most recent was yesterday.  We’ll have a report on some of that next week.

We craft our articles in a way that attempts to take a 360-degree view.  Websites such as this one can be accessed by anyone. While the primary audience is industry professional, investors, public officials and advocates – and third-party data shows that’s who our main readers are – we strive never to forget that others can drop in and read here too.  The media, public officials, and advocates have for years.

It is part of what makes us the runaway #1 read manufactured housing industry professional trade media.

The week ahead will have reports about the community sector, and on topics that will evolve on all other aspects of factory built housing.

The dramatic – news-packed – week that was, is found below.

Why is there so much struggle to “control the narrative” in media, politics, business, etc.?  It could be summed up in the two quotes above.

If ever there was a need for objective thinking, careful reasoning, and then precise action based upon facts not myths – this is certainly one of those time.  Let’s dive into this week’s headlines in review.

We cover news in a volume and pace no one else in the industry even comes close to attempting with original work.

When we cover stories the mainstream media covers, we do so in a fashion that’s designed to highlight points relevant to industry professionals.  Furthermore, they are crafted in a way that if a researcher in investing, media, academia, politico, or others reviews what we produced vs. what the mainstream media did, our work-product will reveal insights the mainstream media simply doesn’t have.

That allows us to understand the business news better.  Scores of people across the country in key positions follow and/or contribute to what we do.  That’s true from operations of all sizes and types.

Maybe that’s why one of our thousands of executive level readers said in a message:
