Louisville Manufactured Housing Show
Each year this event offers a great opportunity, at a great time and location, for involved industry professionals to get a grasp on where the industry is headed in the near and long term. As always the industry will display great homes, products, services and information that will appeal to the American home shopper seeking affordable high-quality innovative housing, which is exactly what today’s modern manufactured homes and modular homes represent.
The manufactured housing industry arrives in Louisville filled with optimism, enthusiasm, and anticipation for the year ahead and beyond. This year’s optimism is buoyed by recent political events that could very well be a springboard for unprecedented growth of the industry going forward. Those events have been chronicled here at ManufacturedHomes.com/blog on a weekly basis, reporting the industry struggles with onerous legislation and regulations, combined with a sluggish economy, which ultimately inhibited the manufactured home retail and finance sector. It has become apparent here at ManufacturedHomes.com (MFH) and throughout the industry that many of those inhibitors may be diminished in the not so distant future. As such, many feel the potential of the industry going forward is seemingly unlimited.
(Example: One positive development is the new legislation introduced in the U.S. Congress on January 13th that will authorize HUD to provide grants and/or loans to replace outdated manufactured homes with new manufactured or modular homes. That breaking news and an analysis of its positive ramifications was posted here on January 16, 2017, as the lead story on our weekly MFH News Blog.)
The manufactured home industry has shown consistent double-digit growth in production and retail sales year-over-year for the past four years, an indication that homebuyers are realizing that a manufactured home meets their definition of “everything a home should be.” Even with that success, the industry has the capacity, structure and know how to serve thousands of more citizens seeking the uniquely American dream of home ownership.
To maximize and capitalize on that upcoming potential requires a vibrant online presence, a synergistic promotional program, and a dynamic marketing of manufactured housing on today’s valuable social networks, specifically and directly aimed at potential homeowners.
