UMH CEO Sam Landy Touts and Tempers Manufactured Home Operation’s Expectations

April 10th, 2018 Comments off


UMH Properties (UMH:NYSE) has both touted and tempered the results and expectations that investors may have with respect to one of the largest players in the manufactured home community (MHC) sector.


To provide a balanced view of the latest reports on the manufactured home (MH) community REIT (Real Estate Investment Trust) – UMH Properties – to MH Industry Professionals and investors, one must take a step back and establish some context.

The Daily Business News is the only MH Industry trade media that tracks their and other stocks connected to manufactured homes.  We’ve done so for years. The closing numbers on the UMH stock last night are linked here.


 So MHProNews and has directly engaged with UMH Properties for years, as well as tracked reports about them by others.  MHProNews has interviewed UMH President Sam Landy a number of times.


The videos posted are both from 2017, but are revealing and relevant precisely as background.  They reflect their leadership’s thinking and company facts in brief.

MHProNews will follow up in the near term with a deeper data dive into UMH, and what that tells us about the trends in manufactured housing in general, as well as in the community sector.

Community Closed for Waterfront Development

May 20th, 2013 Comments off

The tri-cityherald informs MHProNews the Clover Leaf land lease community in Kennewick, Wash. was sold in February, 2013 to BW Land which is developing the 22 acres into a waterfront of shops, condos, and hotels. BW sent out eviction notices to residents, giving them 30 days to move, but retracted when they realized the order would not stand up in court. The majority of the 36 residents moved after the first notice, but the remaining ones have now been given one year from April to find new living quarters. BW had begun using heavy equipment in the community but stopped after residents complained of the large holes left by tree removal and unsafe conditions. Tempers have flared to the point of police being called, but now BW is considering offering financial assistance to help residents move because they do not want to wait until April 2014 to begin development work.
