MHC Owner Busy Selling Homes

May 20th, 2013 Comments off

Having re-branded 18-year-old SSK Communities as “You Got it Homes,” co-founder Nathan Smith says the company sold no new manufactured homes in 2011, 60 in 2012, and they are already ahead of last year’s sales, due to aggressive TV ads. As the owner/operator of 22 land lease communities with 4,900 homesites in Indiana, Kentucky, and Ohio, Smith says they are one of the first companies in the country to build a vertically-integrated business model—they sell the manufactured homes, arrange or provide financing, insure the home and manage the communities. Cincinnati reports Smith, who is also chairman of the Manufactured Housing Institute (MHI), says people like the streamlined one-stop shopping approach, and the company’s website, has generated over 4,000 sales leads. MHProNew has learned SSK is the largest MHC owner in Kentucky and one of the top 30 in the country.

Modular Builder may enter Oil Boom Fray

September 18th, 2012 Comments off

Prairiebizmag reports Red Lake Falls, Minnesota based Homark Homes is building two dormitory-style man camps for a Goldcorp, Inc. gold mine near Musselwhite, Ontario, Canada. Built to house 76 workers, each building consists of 16 modular units connected to form a two-story residence hall 28 feet wide by 282 feet long.  Employee-owned Homark’s primary business has been in modular home construction.  This $3.6 million project may be a jumping off point to become more involved in the housing stampede that has taken western North Dakota by storm due to the Bakken Formation oil boom. James Hassel, Homark’s sales manager, noting the company is working with developers in the area, says, “Our costs are too high to compete, because of our quality. We build homes that are as good as or better than stick-built houses built on site. What we’re trying to do is find niches and areas where people want communities built.” MHProNews has learned Homark began in the 1960’s building mobile homes and now has 100 employees.
