The Citizen-Times in Asheville, North Carolina reports Clayton Homes Regional Manager Joe Belcher is running for a seat on the Buncombe County Board of Commissioners. A Republican and strong proponent of bringing more business into the area as well as reducing government debt, Belcher is equally as strong in support of teacher salaries: “They make so little that we should do whatever we can to preserve that, not just for the teachers but for the good of the children.” As MHProNews has learned, he has been with Clayton 28 years, seven as a vice president.

Mall owners may buy nearby Manufactured Home Community in receivership

August 9th, 2011 Comments off

Sabre_MHC_Courtesy_Niagra_Gazette posted on Manufactured Home Marketing Sales Management MHMSM.comBuffaloNews reports that the new owners of the Niagara Factory Outlet Mall are interested in purchasing the Sabre Park ‘mobile home park.’ The Sabre Park community is in foreclosure, with a mortgage of approximately $6 million. Jason Daack, regional manager for Mobile Home Parks, has no ownership interest in the property. Mobile Home Parks are managing the property during the foreclosure process. The mall owners hope to close the deal by Sept. 1, “but nobody is being asked to move by Sept. 1,” Daack said. Daack confirmed Monday that notices were being delivered to each home to inform residents of the potential sale. The community reportedly has 214 occupied sites, each of them renting for about $360 a month, with manufactured homes that are generally owner occupied. The regional manager explained that residents have the right to form a homeowners association and to buy the property themselves on the same terms as the shopping outlet mall. Macerich Co., a real estate investment trust with headquarters in Santa Monica, Calif., purchased the mall last month for $200 million.
