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

August 12th, 2018 Comments off
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.

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.

Trivia: If you look carefully, the screen shot of the iPad above often looks like the MHProNews home page did on that Sunday morning.

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.

Sunday Morning Manufactured Home Industry Research, Reports, Headline News Recap 5.27.2018 to 6.3.2018

Factoid. If you look at the home page of MHProNews on Sunday Morning, it will look like what you see on this tablet screen shot, above.

Meshuggeneh

 

We were checking out at Walmart last night after dinner.  The woman who was ringing up our order was lightly conversing with my husband and family.  She was commenting on something the previous lady in line had said before leaving with her new goodies.  The lady at the register said to us, “What would my rabbi think about that?”  Without missing a beat, Tony said, “He’d likely think it would be Meshuggeneh.”

The woman looked with surprised delight, but apparently made the quick judgement that we were not Jewish.  “Yes, you’re right.  But how do you know what that means?”  “Because we have a number of Jewish friends and colleagues,” Tony replied, and in moments he and our son Tamas were both singing a few lines from Fiddler on the Roof to that woman’s amazement and joy.

The word “Meshuggah” is defined by the Free Dictionary like this: “Adj. 1. meshugga – senseless; crazy. meshuga, meshugge, meshuggeneh, meshuggener. Yiddish – a dialect of High German including some Hebrew and other words; spoken in Europe as a vernacular by many Jews; written in the Hebrew script.”  It’s use was perfectly suited for the occasion, and the exchanged clearly lifted the spirits of that woman — who doesn’t know us, and we did not know her save for those few minutes at a register.

There are times when the right words – including lyrical words – can bring joy, inspiration, comfort, or insight to others. Words can harm, and words can heal.

As trade publishers, it is never our intent to harm another, quite the opposite is true.

Journalism and trade journalism are relatives, but they are not precisely the same thing.

There is journalism for a cause, so-called agenda journalism.  Many in media try their hands at that, and to a degree, in as much as we advocate for this or that as a means of advancing manufactured housing in an editorial way, it would be fair to say that MHProNews and MHLivingNews have an agenda too. Every genuine trade media is a kind of de facto advocate for their respective cause or industry.

Ours agenda is out in the open. We want to see manufactured housing advance. Everything else, as my spouse might say, are details and commentary. During an affordable housing crisis, when the industry has done as much as 5 to 6 times higher levels of new manufactured home sales in the past, why isn’t the industry doing much better today?

For newcomers to the website not familiar with modern manufactured homes, learn more by clicking the image above or the link here.

Day by day, article by article, we strive to provide insights that address those kinds of opportunities and concerns.

Life can take surprising turns.

Neither Tony nor I imagined at the start of our studies and early careers that the course on our lives would bring us into manufactured housing.

My training was in medicine, and I’d been certified here in the U.S., and in a European nation, and my motherland too. Tony began his years of college studies in history, with a journalism scholarship, and a minor in business. As a medical scientist, I strive to look at things clinically. Tony uses decades of hands-on industry involvement in retail, communities, with lenders and producers, all aided by the lens of his education and other life experiences.

We naturally influence each other, as we aim to inform (and be informed by) you and the thousands of industry professionals, investors, and researchers who will check in today to read this among the total of 6.7 pages they will read on average before they go.

DisneySpringsTamasKovachPoliceSheriffsFirstRespondersDailyBusinessNewsMHproNews

A child with serious medical conditions will altar your life’s paths. But what a joy it is to embrace life, including the challenges that life will always bring.  As thousands in MHVille know, Tamas travels with us to trade shows and other industry events.

Depending on the time of year, and what’s going on in the industry, page views per reader can go as high as 9 per visit.

But even our most recent third-party data demonstrates that our readers are twice as engaged as the average mainstream media news site (by comparison, mainstream news gets about 3.3 page views per reader). Wow, we have double the engagement – or more – than mainstream news readers get. Our sincere thank you to all who make that possible.

Webalizer and Alexa are among the sources of our traffic insights, and third-party data tells us that no other trade publication even comes close to us in the manufactured housing trade media field. Again, thank you. By the way, it was a challenge from George Allen who suggested that we generate this third-party data report.  We listen to a wide range of readers, and often respond to, readers comments, though not always instantly.

There are a handful of bigger websites than ours in what Tony likes to fondly call MHVille or HUDVille. But no one even comes close in MH trade media websites, or apparently in published MH media too.  These are facts. No one else in MH media even bothers to share their trade site or readership data. NOTE: It’s not how many of what you print, it is what gets read that counts.

That’s one of several ways that third-party data comes in handy.

Why are we successful, and have a MH Professional audience as wide and deep as we do? 

Fair questions.

First, we provide professional services to the industry, so we aren’t sitting in some ivory tower. We know factory-crafted homes from the ground up. Tony began award-winning, record-setting work in MH retail in the 1980s.  He later shifted to working with lenders on remarketing, and then with land-lease MH Communities (MHC) and producers.  In the industry’s trade media, it’s unlikely that anyone in MH history has interviewed more people than we have: actual manufactured home owners, numerous industry professionals, experts, and others who touch or connect with manufactured and modular home building.

Next, we curate topics that ought to have meaning for you, industry professionals, investors, policy advocates, and other kinds of researchers.  Thus, it should be no surprise when a number of articles here get over ten thousand hits or more in their first month online on MHProNews. Millions of page-views in a year can yield the kind of statistics that generated the following factoid.

The industry needs inspiration as well as fair warnings, and de facto morality tales. We are guided day-by-day with input from industry readers from across the range of businesses of all sizes.  The Daily Business News gathers input from a variety of sources, including:

  • insights and interactions with members and staffs of trade associations,
  • the federal government,
  • state or local officials,
  • mainstream media,
  • experts in various fields, and much more.

Yes, we have typos, as detractors like to note, but we also bring the industry’s most read, most discussed, and hardest-hitting articles. Tony says, “chaff and wheat.”  Keep the good grain, please pardon any keystroke or autocorrection-caused glitch.  Please pardon as needed, and keep in mind that for me, English is my third language.  Keep in mind too that we are doing more articles than all others combined between doing other services for various members of the industry.

We’re not aiming for the politically correct. We call it as we see it, but not for the sake of mere clickbait.

We are willing to expose what is necessary – the underlying factors that are holding our great industry back from achieving its potential for solving the massive, and growing affordable housing crisis.

We are willing to name-names, and point fingers, when there is evidence to make a claim.

We are evidence- and principle-based writers, with analysis informed by decades of hands-on experience in manufactured housing.

We’re mindful that every article gets read by thousands, many of whom will make decisions about manufactured housing related issues.

When third-party researchers, the federal government, others in mainstream media read, cite or quote our work, that all says something.  When certain voices in MHVille attack us (usually, quietly), that says something too. When the naysayers won’t debate publicly, that definitely tells you something’s amiss.  If they thought the facts were on their side, why not discuss them publicly?

Doing anything less than giving you actionable insights based upon reality – when during this U.S. affordable housing crisis our potential as an industry could be 5 to 10 times more business  – could debatably be called Meshuggeneh.

That said, let’s dive into this week’s tops headlines.

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.

Millions could care less about politics. Many don’t want to talk about religion either. Especially those in business, who want to be able to serve as many people as possible, topics like that are almost a taboo.

Then there is “industry politics.”  Some only want to hear ‘good news.’  ‘We keep it positive’ was part of a longer thread of messages from an industry blogger.

Isn’t that like not wanting to know when it will rain, hail, snow – or if a hurricane is coming your way?

When the industry was on its heels in October of 2009, the year what’s known as MHProNews launched, there was a need then to get industry professionals to rally.  That required cheer leading, but it also required the facts that supported the reasons to be confident in our factory-built home – notably HUD Code manufactured home – industry.  But modular, prefab, conventional – all housing slid in those days

The automotive, RV, and conventional housing industry recovered more rapidly than manufactured homes did.  Why?  Document and fact laden Smoking Gun 3 will help answer that question.

MHProNews waited to see who among the industry’s trade voices would let the thousands who didn’t go to Las Vegas know that the MHI event was repeatedly disrupted by protestors. It’s on video. See that on the Masthead, because who else in the industry among industry trade talkers will bring you what is real?

We don’t want disunity,’ or ‘But we don’t want to hear negative things,’ some say.  Sure, we get that on the Daily Business News, but as an MD by training, I can tell you that patients don’t want to hear that they have a serious illness either.  Early treatment is the path to the cure.

The doctor, attorney, or account who tells you only what you want to hear can get sued for malpractice.  Don’t you want reliable information, not just happy talk?

As an MD and as a mother-to-be, I didn’t want to hear that our son Tamas wasn’t going to live.  But thank God, by prayer and daily action, he did live and while it required a complete change of plan for me personally, look at what a child who spent much of the first years of his life in a hospital looks like today.

DisplayModelTunicaManufacturedHousingShowTamasKovachAttendeeDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

Tamas Kovach (pronounced like “TahMash CoVatch), is part of the MHProNews/MHLivingNews family, with a Tunica Show attendee. Numerous such photos are taken during the course of the event.

Sacrifices were made in my career for the sake of our son.  Because we faced a tough reality in the face – through that combination of action and prayer – the payoff with our son was priceless. Almost everyone who meets him rapidly says, how special he is.  At the affordable housing focus group, our son went from table to table, telling joke after joke, to the delight of the attendees, while the video cameras, mics. and lights were being set up.

Every child is special.  Every adult is too.

On MHLivingNews, where the industry truly needs something positive, we do that better than anyone ever in the history of the industry.  But we also use that site to disprove time and again the false and misleading concepts that are held by millions.  It is done factually, based upon evidence, using as often as possible third party research, actual home owners, or other experts. No one else in the history of the industry has produced more such research, useful, and positive content.

The industry still needs a level of confidence building.  But it also needs reality checks and fact checks so that those who hide the facts – who hide the real news, and what’s going on behind the scenes – are shown to be who they are.

In the real world, people do bad things to each other, like it or not.  You have to be ready for that, as a mature adult.

In medicine, you change the prescription and the treatment according to the evidence and to suit the case of the patient.  We pivoted on our format here on MHProNews several times, to suit the evolving situation and to follow the evidence, while following the money.

There’s an affordable housing crisis, and manufactured housing might break the 100,000 shipment mark this year.  That, to borrow HUD Secretary Ben Carson’s phrase, is “ridiculous.”  See Greener and Stylish to better understand just how ridiculous some of what’s been going on in MHVille truly is.

Or on the Masthead, see a report you have yet to see anywhere else in manufactured housing industry trade news or commentary.

Or look at the modular survey for a different reality check.  Some want to run to mods as the solution.  We embrace all kinds of factory built housing.  But if someone thinks that “going modular” alone is the answer, that survey is a wake up call.

The latest MH Industry BIG DEAL is below, with details not found in the official press release.

Not just those, but every story we publish is carefully curated to inform – and yes, inspire – industry professionals.

That’s why you made and keep us the runaway #1 trade media in the industry. That’s what third party facts reveal. Thank you for that confidence.  We don’t ever intend to betray it, even if it means tell you some tough realities. From the biggest names in the industry, to the mom-and-pops, and all in between – plus public officials, investors and others – they all flock to read here by the thousands daily. That’s just a fact.

FactsDetailsMatterScrabbleLettersManufacturedHomeIndustryDailyBusinessNewsMHProNews

On the nightly market report, we summarize headlines from CNN Money and Fox Business – about as different as you can get – just to give you a fuller sense of how dramatically different the same events are often covered.

We’ve done that for years.  It is called balance.  It’s called fairness. That’s what being truly pro-industry looks like.

Count on us to tell you what the evidence points to, what it means for industry professionals, so that you can better navigate your decisions and actions.  Then, you’ll understand this tag lines, MH “Industry News, Tips and Views Pros Can Use.” ©We Provide, You Decide.” ©
