Earlier this month I was asked, by a consulting client, to summarize circumstances I believe deleveraged the manufactured housing industry en-route to the miserable shape it's in today; and, what land-lease  community owners may have done, in my opinion, to screw up their own business model. I'll begin with the (edited) paragraphs I penned, in response to that request; then conclude with a column paragraph published here in July issue – followed by commentary.

steven-leflerThe history of active adult communities is fairly short. It began in Phoenix, Arizona, by developer Del Webb in the 1960s. His plan included social clubhouses, golf course and other recreational amenities. As retirees and couples no longer needing a large home where they could raise their families, they sought other communities that offered social programs and housing that required less care and maintenance.

S eller financing of one form or another is beginning to become the norm in the manufactured housing industry. While that is great news, those not fully familiar and knowledgeable about setting up and operating a captive finance company often have several problems, not the least of which is setting up their structure and operation to finance brand new homes. Most of the rent to own, lease to own and lease option operations are sloppy and unprofessional operations that are on a par with Lonnie Deals and depend on used homes bought for far less than they are sold for in order to actually work.

Many years ago as a young, aspiring speaker, I heard an older speaker who was quite philosophical say that you are where you are because that's exactly where you want to be. I thought about his statement, decided it was the "wisdom of the ages" and verbalized it in my own presentations. Over a period of time, a series of events took place that convinced me that his statement was not true in my case. I was broke, in debt and down in the dumps. I wanted to be prosperous and excited about my future.
