Manufactured Home Shipments

Again we are seeing an increase in housing sales.  Nationwide this year’s year to date is 19.3% higher than last year with unit sales increasing by 5,249 homes.  Overall the housing market is looking good, and we are beginning to be able to take advantage of it.

Maine and Connecticut, +97.4% and +188.2%respectivly, are the two states that have seen the biggest increase in manufactured housing shipments as the housing and job market stabilization is finally planting roots on the Northeastern coast.

Some in the Midwest such as the Dakotas and Wyoming have seen a decrease in manufactured housing sales but this is mostly due to the seasonal and volatile nature of jobs in the Oil industry.  The drop in sales in this region is more reflective of the Oil industry than it is the housing industry.

Overall sales are up nationally and I’ve spoken with several bankers and realtors from my area expressing that the flood of foreclosures that had been on the market has begun to dry up and property values are on the rise.  Due to the rising property values and the shrinking inventory of existing homes in the housing market, new buyers are being forced to either site-build or turn to manufactured housing as a way of becoming homeowners or purchasing their next home.
