Datacomp maintains and provides the JLT Market Reports and is the nation’s #1 provider of market data for the manufactured housing industry. JLT Market Reports are recognized as the industry standard for manufactured home community market analysis.
September 2020 manufactured housing market data published in JLT Market Reports for the three states include information from 21 markets on 341 “All ages” and “55+” manufactured home communities.
Altogether, the reports from California, Oklahoma, and Texas manufactured home communities include data representations for 217,547 homesites.
Regional Trends in Manufactured Housing Community Rent
- Pacific region manufactured home communities show a year-over-year 3.5% increase in rent for retirement communities and a 3.2% increase for all-ages communities.
- Southwest region manufactured home communities show a year-over-year 3.6% increase in rent for retirement communities and a 4.2% increase for all-ages communities.
- West region manufactured home communities show a year-over-year 3.3% increase in rent for retirement communities and a 4.8% increase for all-ages communities.
“California occupancy rates remained steady on a statewide basis, with only slight bumps or dips in select markets, while Oklahoma and each Texas experienced a small uptick in occupancy rates,” Datacomp Co-President and Chief Business Development Officer Darren Krolewski said. “September 2020 reports also show a good amount of stable rent growth in the three western states, with just two markets — one in California and the other in Texas — where rents rose beyond what we might anticipate for the average annual increase .”
