MHARR has documented how decline driven by failure within the industry’s post-production advocacy on discriminatory zoning exclusion and refusal of Fannie and Freddie to securitize chattel loans’”

— Mark Weiss, J.D., President and CEO of Washington, D.C. based MHARR..

WASHINGTON, D.C., UNITED STATES, October 6, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform (MHARR) reports that according to official statistics compiled on behalf of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), HUD Code manufactured housing industry year-over-year production declined again in August 2023. Just-released statistics indicate that HUD Code manufacturers produced 8,670 new homes in August 2023, a 19.1% decrease from the 10,722 new HUD Code homes produced in August 2022. Cumulative production for 2023 is now 58,692 homes, a 27% decrease from the 80,431 homes produced over the same period during 2022.

In the midst of an ongoing affordable housing crisis, with housing costs reaching or nearing all-time highs, inherently affordable manufactured housing continues to significantly underperform, with production levels for 2023 far below the industry’s potential and even the diminished annual production averages of the past decade-plus. As MHARR has explained and documented, this decline continues to be driven by key failures within the industry’s post-production sector including, most significantly, discriminatory zoning exclusion (tolerated by HUD) and the stubborn refusal of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to securitize chattel loans for nearly 80% of the industry’s most affordable mainstream manufactured homes. Unless and until someone within the industry can fully explain any and all other possible reasons for this decline, which has left the industry in its current downward spiral, the Manufactured Housing Institute, as the only national association which collects representation dues from the post-production sector of the industry, has a duty and obligation to press HUD as well as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to fully comply with the relevant existing laws (i.e., the 2000 reform law and the Duty to Serve law) going forward.

The Manufactured Housing Association for Regulatory Reform is a Washington, D.C.- based national trade association representing the views and interests of independent producers of federally-regulated manufactured housing. ##
