What’s the Deal?

Big Investors Move to Find Best Deals Before Market Levels

Lakeway Mobile Estates,Bellingham, Wash.

From Bellingham, Wash. to Newnan, Ga., Jon Harrison scans the map for just the right patch of land. He talks to brokers, scours county records and relies on whatever information he can gain from inside sources.

All in the name of finding the prime manufactured home community.

Harrison isn’t looking for his retirement place. He’s not looking for the simple yet ideal coastal getaway for the family. He works for Inspire Communities, not the largest of the community owners, but certainly entrenched in the top quarter of the industry.

A former broker himself, Harrison is in acquisitions, and always is looking for the perfect mix of placement and amenities that can be a great home for 200 hundred residents or more – and no less important, a stellar portfolio addition for the company owners and investors.

2017 Louisville Show is Approaching Fast!

Louisville Manufactured Housing Show Expands to Meet Industry Needs

2017 Louisville Manufactured Housing Show Set for January 18-20, 2017

From the 2017 Louisville Manufactured Housing Show website:

The need for insightful, accurate and forward-looking information about the manufactured Louisville Showhousing industry is the driving force behind recently announced plans for the 2017 Manufactured Housing Show in Louisville, KY. The 2017 Show will be held January 18-20 at the Kentucky Exposition Center and will feature more homes on display, along with more efficient space for service and supplier exhibits. An expanded schedule providing a full range of educational seminars is also being added to the 2017 program to offer greater business opportunities to attendees.

The Show is sponsored by the Midwest Housing Federation, including its five member organizations: the Illinois Manufactured Housing Association, the Indiana Manufactured Housing Association, the Kentucky Manufactured Housing Institute, the Michigan Manufactured Housing Association, and the Ohio Manufactured Homes Association.

Leaders of the industry’s retail, builders/developers, installation, and community management sectors will share their experiences and knowledge about all levels of affordable homes, from HUD-Code homes to spectacular systems-built housing.

l17-logo-large200“The Louisville Show has seen a significant evolution into the manufactured housing industry’s premier indoor housing forum, drawing an ever-increasing turnout from more than 842 different companies across all sectors of the housing industry,” says Dennis Hill, Show Coordinator. “Positive feedback and input from attendees is helping us ensure that the 2017 Show will be even better and offer attendees outstanding opportunities to benefit directly from their overall Show experience. With the Show scheduled the first month of 2017, it will ensure that inventory will be delivered in time for the early selling season and that everyone can be ready for the start of warm weather sales.”

As an added benefit, the 2017 Show will feature a much wider range of educational seminars tailored to provide real learning opportunities that directly improve business strategies and marketing outreach efforts. “What we’re doing with the 2017 Show is to spread the seminars and workshops from just two days to all three days of the Show, along with moving the seminars from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. each day,” stated Ken Rishel, director of Rishel Consulting Group LLC and chairman of the Show’s educational programming. “This change will give us a total of 6 seminars/workshops during the Show and give attendees more time to visit and see the homes and exhibits, while also allowing us to provide more meaningful and relevant information to attendees.”

The seminars will also focus on bringing in “more outside-the-industry” experts who can provide really important information on key initiatives that attendees need to adopt to be more successful in their day-to-day business activities,” Rishel noted. “We’ll move from the basics of marketing and advertising on the first day of the seminar schedule, to sales and financing strategies on the second day, to the third day’s look at what national issues and trends the industry needs to anticipate and incorporate to be more successful. “Our ultimate goal with the seminars and workshops is to expand our industry’s education and adoption of smarter business strategies in order to expand and accelerate our successes in the housing marketplace,” Rishel stated.

The 2017 Show will be held at the Kentucky Exposition Center, with the Crowne Plaza Hotel serving at the Show headquarters hotel. “With the Louisville Airport a mere 3 minutes from the Exposition Center, there is not a more convenient show site,” Hill noted. “The people attending the Louisville Manufactured Housing Show are motivated to purchase homes and services,” Hill stated. “They have invested their time and money to be part of this unique show and they are decision-makers or have the ear of decision-makers. And January is the perfect time to get the industry’s new sales year started. They are ready to do business and you need to be there!”

The Show’s ongoing enhancement activities and initiatives will be announced as developments occur. The Show’s new web site at www.TheLouisvilleShow.com will include all relevant information and registration instructions beginning in early July, along with regularly updated announcements regarding exhibits, seminars and other Show-related items in industry publications and informational platforms.

Dennis Hill may be reached at 770-587-3350 or showways@bellsouth.net.
