INTRODUCTION: Year 2017 is when the Community Owners (7 Part) Business Alliance®, or COBA7®, grows into the expanded role of national advocate devoted to the research, communication, networking & deal-making, training/certification, and historian needs of land-lease community owners/operators nationwide and in Canada!

The year begins with publication of a WHITE PAPER exposing the ‘tipping point’ manufactured housing & land-lease communities approach, at their peril, between supplying ‘affordable & non-affordable’ housing to prospective homebuyers and present day homeowner/site lessees. No one else is willing to ‘break this story’ to you, so read!

In January, the 28th annual ALLEN REPORT, a.k.a. ‘Who’s Who Among Land-lease Community Portfolio Owners/operators Throughout North America!’ will be distributed to Option II & III affiliates of COBA7® via the January issue of the Allen Letter professional journal. Not yet an affiliate? Phone (317) 346-7156. This is the gold standard among statistical reports purporting to describe LLCommunities nationwide.

On 17 January 2017, COBA7® hosts the one day MHM® class, as well as two seminars tailored for HUD-Code home manufacturers, and LLCommunity owners desiring to learn more about lease-option methodology. Read Part I following here…

During Spring 2017, plan to participate in the 2nd annual Two Days of Plant Tours & Home Sales Seminars, at the RV/MH Hall of Fame in Elkhart, IN. Designed for LLCommunity owners/operators desiring to sell and seller-finance new HUD-Code homes on-site in their properties. More to follow during the months ahead.

And there’s more, much more, but we’ll stop the INTRODUCTION here, for now…

COBA7® Launches Four Major Initiatives to Warn & Help MHBusiness in Year 2017!


‘Be aware & Beware’! The Manufactured Housing Industry (is approaching its’) Tipping Point in local housing markets; where and when ‘reasonable rental homesite rates & affordable housing values’ are being supplanted by ‘higher rental homesite rates & smaller PITI mortgage payments’, resulting in:

Diminished Buying Power for Purchase of New HUD-Code Housing

Reduction in Existing Housing Value, &

Fewer New HUD-Code Homes Shipped Nationwide!

Yes, that’s the dire message this December expose’, a White Paper, will be communicating to the manufactured housing industry and land-lease community real estate asset class nationwide, by way of its’ national advocacy entities, trade press, and otherwise. A Press Release will also be sent to the administrator of HUD’s manufactured housing program.

For a FREE reprint copy of this White Paper, after 1 December, simply phone the Official MHIndustry HOTLINE: (877) MFD-HSNG or 633-4764 and request it!
