May 24th, 2013 Comments off

According to globenewswire, Cavco Industries, Inc. reports net income before taxes for the fiscal fourth quarter 2013 was $3 million, up from $2.9 million from the same period last year including a $1.2 million tax benefit from the acquisition of Palm Harbor. Net revenue rose 9.4 percent for fiscal Q4 2013 over Q4 2012, $108.8 million over $99.5 million. For the fiscal year ending March 30, 2013, net revenue rose 2.1 percent to $452.3 million from $443.1 million for the same period ending 2012. Net income attributable to Cavco stockholders for fiscal year 2013 was $5.0 million compared to $15.2 million the previous year, although this included approximately $11 million of the gain recognized from the acquisition of Palm Harbor. Joseph Stegmayer, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer said, “We are pleased to report improved results for the fourth quarter compared to the same period last year. We realized a 15.1% increase in home sales to 2,176, up from 1,890 homes sold in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012. On an annual basis, the average sales price per home decreased to approximately $48,594 compared to $51,760 in fiscal year 2012, as demand rose for small size and lower price point homes. However, we sold 6.8% more homes overall in fiscal 2013 versus last year, totaling 8,398 homes compared to 7,860 in fiscal year 2012.” As MHProNews knows, Cavco is the second largest producer of manufactured homes in the U. S., marketed under Cavco, Fleetwood, and Palm Harbor.

Freddie Mac Speaks

June 21st, 2012 Comments off

WorldPropertyChannel reports Freddie Mac’s vice president and chief economist, Frank Nothaft, says due to rental demand by people postponing homeownership, rental activity has produced some good numbers in the housing market. The GSE’s U.S. Economic and Housing Market Outlook for June 2012 says for the year ending March 2012, the number of rental housing households increased four percent, some 1.5 million, with nominal rents rising 2-4 percent during that same period. However, average rent on an inflation-adjusted basis was below where it had been 1997-2007; and the vacancy rate has fallen only two percent in the last two years. Meanwhile, as MHProNews has learned from the National Council of Real Estate Investment Fiduciaries index, multifamily property values gained 25 percent in the last two years, but the numbers remain 14%  below their peak before the Great Recession.
