Back to Basics Will Boost Manufactured Home Sales, Sunday Morning Manufactured Home Industry Headline News Recap Aug 5 – Aug 12, 2018

SundayMorningManufacturedHousingINdustryRecapDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews7.29.2018to8.5.2018

Trivia: note that the MHProNews home page on Sunday morning looks like that iPad screen, just moments before this weekly recap is published. We get our share of typos, but we do sweat the details, all for thousands of industry readers like you.

Let’s stress again that there are numbers of honorable operators and professionals in manufactured housing.

 

Some of those honorable souls would see “the basics” in a similar way that we at MHProNews would agree with too.

BackToBasicsWillBoostManufacturedHomeSales

But perhaps in an ironic way, the fact that not everyone understands what “the basics” are illuminates a key part of the factor-built home industry’s problem in the U.S.

For a the next few moments, by “Factory Built Homes,” we’re talking about all forms of off-site built production housing. Manufactured homes (MH), modular homes, other kinds of PreFab homes all frankly struggle with various levels of image and misunderstanding.

Rephrased, it’s an educational issue.

There are training programs in manufactured housing today, right? Numbers of trainers and coaches, some of whom grew up learning and repeating the late Grayson Schewpfinger’s methods. Some of that was fine, he had years of success. So, with no disrespect to the departed, some of that method was also demonstrably problematic.

We won’t run through a bunch of other trainers names, but the following is reality.

If the correct combination of

  • marketing,
  • public relations,
  • sales systems,
  • capital/lending, and
  • lobbying/legal efforts were made,

manufactured housing would arguably be 10 time’s larger than it now is. So too would other forms of U.S. factory building.  When this nation gets the challenges of factory-home building related issues right, the process of acceptance will arguably accelerate in other parts of the world too.  While something like 98.5 percent of our readers are U.S. or Canada, the other 1.5 percent are equally dedicated from other parts of the world.  What happens in MHVille matters.  People from across the globe check in daily here to find out the latest.

 

Proof?

The evidence for the fact that domestic manufactured home production could rise 1o fold, meaning by 1,000 percent, are all around us. One part of the evidence is found in the RV compared to MH report, linked further below.  Or check out the comparisons with the HousingEconomics data, further below.

So, we’ll point you to that and other reports, commentary, and analysis published this past week for more details and specifics.

 

Style, Substance, and Reality Checks

The RV compared to MH Report – linked below – gives a stark reality check for manufactured housing professionals and investors.

There’s a widely held school of thought that advises, “praise in public, correct in private.” That’s a fine norm. But when “private” efforts with the purveyors of the problems have failed repeatedly, a more direct approach is needed.

So that leaves the industry with a need for publicly calling out the problematic behaviors by certain professionals in key places. Where appropriate, that should also lead to remedial legal action, taken by private plaintiff’s attorneys, and/or public officials.

As the Daily Business News has stated for years, we publish reports on various lawsuits and regulatory issues because

1)    they occur,

2)    as a kind of morality tale. Don’t do what caused those people to get in hot water.  By the way, there’s a number of legally focused reports  last week, also found below.

While some are understandably uncomfortable with pointing out problems, what’s the alternative? Allowing another 15 years of the same often avoidable issues?  Again, look at the RV industry, and you’ll see why we’re so passionate about helping manufactured housing achieve what the RV industry has often done quite well.

 

They Did It Before…

Last week, this column asked the question, “They did it before, they can do it again.” Isn’t that obvious?

Reality can be uncomfortable.

But to deny reality is foolish. Check out Zig Ziglar’s article on problem solving, along with our other new and featured articles, linked here or from the hub, below.

Any given professional can make a difference in their own market. So, while collective efforts are useful on some matters, frankly the right “back to basics” protocols will profitably and ethically elevate results in almost any market.

That said, with no further adieu, let’s check out this week’s reports and commentary.

What is Leadership?”

In 2009 and 2010, the manufactured housing industry hit bottom. What that means is that thousands of professionals and investors in the industry today have never personally experienced an era of high performance.

Some believe that the only reason that manufactured housing hit a total of some 372,000 (+/-) new home shipments in 1998 think that was because of “easy financing.” While easy financing played a role, the reality check is that 372,000 (+/-) consumers believed that a manufactured home was the solution to their housing needs.

In several markets, one in three Americans who bought a new home, were buying a manufactured home in 1998.  Financing made that possible, but real people still made that choice.

About 6 million new or resale conventional housing units will be sold in 2018, according to the most recent National Association of Realtors (NAR) data.

Trading Economics said that the seasonally adjusted annual rate (SAAR) of multi-family housing starts in May 2018 was 404,000. So multifamily alone is about 4 times the number of HUD Code manufactured housing units, based upon recent data.

Trading Economics also said that new construction is running at an eleven year high.

Facts are facts. Facts are neutral measures of reality. Once facts and their causes are understood, then the opportunities can be tapped. What the above data means is that the typical retailer could potentially be selling 10x (+/-) more manufactured homes. a typical market

Meanwhile, manufactured housing – while up from its bottom – is lagging far behind.

When the U.S. needs 8.3 million additional, new affordable housing units (NAR), and conventional builders can’t keep up, nor match our price points, why does manufactured housing lag so badly?

MHProNews established the #1 audience in the industry by not shying away from tough topics. Thinkers come here, and then the doers get busy based upon new insights.  We believed the MH Industry would respond to actionable reality over platitudes.  Vision became reality.

The reasons are many. The Masthead post linked below looks at that in more detail. But here and now, let’s name a few.

 

  • A lack of objective analysis and critical thinking as to the causes and cures for the industry’s low market penetration.

IfIHadAnHourToSolveAProblemIdSpend55MinutesThinkingAboutthePRoblemAnd5MinutesThinkingAboutsolutionsAlbertEinsteinquoteMHProNews

  • A widespread failure to recognize what kind of thinking and behaviors led manufactured housing to this relatively low point. Think about the Einstein quotes, above and further below.

  • Trusting in the wrong “leaders.”

The prophet Hosea (in the “Hebrew Scriptures,” “Tanakh” or for Christians the “Old Testament” Scriptures) proclaimed “My people perish for a lack of knowledge!” (Hosea 4:6)

MyPeopleAreDestroyedForALackOfKnowledgeHosea4-6-ManufacturedHousingINdustryDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

Eternal principles matter. For those who make up their “own morality,” the result is inevitably chaos. Imagine if everyone made up their own “rules of the road” in driving. Driving would become far more hazardous and slow. A common set of authentic core principles is necessary in a just and productive society.

Another version of that same passage is translated as “My people perish for a lack of vision.”

ASatisfiedCustomerIsTheBestBusinessStrateegyOfAllMichaelLeBoueufBrainyQUoteDailyBuisnessNewsManufacturedHousingIndstryMHProNews

Mutual victories is the essence of how progress occurs. By contrast, Win-Lose tends towards avoidable conflict.

MH Industry professionals and investors must become ever-more people of sound, authentic principles. The good of the customer and society ought to be the ultimate good for sellers and service providers.  Mutual victories are how progress occurs.

There are needs for absolute principles in society, just as there are in math or science. Moral relativism doesn’t work in practice. The most just society imaginable would follow the 10 Commandments.

It has been some time since we’ve mentioned “inspirational dissatisfaction.”

WithoutDissatisfactionthereisNoGrowthWithoutHappinessTheeisNoLifeBehappilyDissatisfiedQuoteMHPronews

Inspirational dissatisfaction is part of critical – analytical – thinking, and thus how advancement occurs.

Some people misunderstand the nuanced meaning of the word, “critical.”

Critical thought is analytical thought.

The thinking of the past roughly 15 years will not take manufactured housing to its potential. There are those who for whatever short-sighted or selfish reasons are content with how things are.  Others posture a good talk, but if they routinely violate ethical principles, how can they be good role models or leaders?

The industry can achieve 500,000 to 1,000,000+ new HUD Code manufactured homes sustainably, given the current new housing demands. That’s a 5x to 10x increase. That should be the achievable goal of every independent industry professional.

Phase Two is about to begin, a future based upon realistic potential. More about Phase Two in the days ahead.

Leaders don’t wait for permission to change

Enough said for today on industry and what is leadership. Let’s dive into the news, reports, inspiration, and analysis from the week that was, which are part of the reality checks necessary for sustainable growth.

Mensch

 

We’re preparing an article about a Jewish gentleman known by scores in the Manufactured Home (MH) industry.

In mentioning our research to a Jewish MH industry colleague, he said, “Make sure you say that he was a mensch.”

Google’s online dictionary defines the word “mensch” like this.

MenschNobelPrizeofWordsTitleYouCantBestowOnYOurselfmensch

men(t)SH/

noun NORTH AMERICAN informal

  1. a person of integrity and honor

The Urban Dictionary says, “A mensch is a someone to admire and emulate, someone of noble character. The key to being “a real mensch” is nothing less than character, rectitude, dignity, a sense of what is right, responsible.”

Dictionary.com says a mensch is a “person of strength and honor,” 1907, from Yiddish, from German Mensch, literally “man, person,” from Old High German mennisco “human,” from Proto-Germanic adjective *manniska- “human” (see mannish

Everyone, including we non-Jews (“the goyim”), can learn much from the mensch we are fortunate enough to encounter in life.

 

Divisions

Among the things Tony and I discuss from time to time is how governments, by accident or design, can divide people who otherwise can joyfully coexist side-by-side, absent irksome meddling.

RC Williams, Daily Business News MHProNews

RC Willaims.

As R.C. Williams put it about a year ago, there are professional race-baiters. It’s a term used by others besides R.C., to describe individuals who literally make money stirring up racial discord, often using a non-profit, or other operation to collect money.

Political parties are useful in some ways, but it must also be acknowledged that political parties and their advocates have the tendency to divide people into “us vs. them.”

That can happen in professional groups too.

HowToBeAModernDayMenschThoughtcoDailyBusinessNewsMNProNEws

Scriptural scroll for rabbinic reading.

We’re not among those who believe that every religion is equal.  There are for example, Satanists, not many believers would put them on the same level as other groups. But we acknowledge that if God-Who-Created all gave man free will, then we must respect other’s right to choose.

That doesn’t imply that in politics, religion, economic or other distinctions that dialogue should be avoided.

Robust, frank dialogue that seeks truth in all its forms is to be celebrated.

So, respectful dialogue on issues that divide people ought to be embraced.

Absent absolute standards of right and wrong, how can we recognize what’s criminal, okay or what soars to the level of what is honorable?

To be a mensch – an honorable person who acts with integrity – whatever one’s personal or demographic data might be – requires standards.

 

Back to Basics

Many a coach has taken a struggle team “back to basics,’ Tony says. When something is awry, the basics ought to be among the first its to examine.  When the industry is still at historically low levels of sales, everything that contributes to that should be evaluated.

When Tony and I met nearly 15 years ago, Tony was working in the Houston metro area. He described an impressive manufactured housing retail operation that had lots of traffic. It had leading edge tech at that time. The display made every home look as if it was ground set.  Every home was staged to the 9s.

That retailer had multiple outlets.

But as impressive as that retail operation was, as high as their traffic was, their conversion ratios were low. Their sales were low.

They ended up going bankrupt.

Tony said much of their plan was fine, but when people aren’t buying in sufficient numbers to sustain a business, it’s an obvious sign that one or more things are either missing or are not sufficiently emphasized.

That retailer never became a client of his. For a fraction of the cost of their monthly overhead, they could have invested and won. They pinched pennies, and it cost them millions. It’s but one of numerous examples of ways that a firm can fail.

The word “integrity” has several meanings. One is “the state of being whole and undivided.”

HonestyIntegrityWordCloudEthicsTrustRespectSincereMonsoonLeadersManufacturedHousingMHProNEws

Honest people can fail. Dishonest people can succeed for a time, as some criminal enterprises prove.

But ultimately every operation that has integrity – in a free enterprise system – learns to serve the public in ways that benefit the buyer, while profiting the seller. It must be a mutual victory.

That win-win requires a foundation, the basics. Every company or organization needs it.

When there’s one or more mensch in the mix, a person of integrity and honor, the odds for sustainable success arguably goes up.

We salute all people who are honorable, and who act with integrity.

With no further adieu, let’s look at the week that was, in over two dozen headline reports.
