A Historical Looks at the Development of Community Market Reports

JLT & Associates was founded by John Turzer in 1995 when he uncovered a need for Manufactured Home Community research. Since then, JLT and Associates has grown to become the industry standard for Market and Rent Survey research in the Manufactured Housing Community Industry. In 2014, to expand its markets and the scope of its market research and rent surveys, JLT & Associates merged its resources, skills, and market research expertise with two well known and respected industry leaders: Datacomp and MHVillage.

Datacomp, the industry’s oldest and largest national manufactured home appraisal company, has been appraising manufactured homes in communities since 1987. It has gathered substantial data about both home values and the amenities and features of the nation’s manufactured home communities. Datacomp also manages and operates MHI’s Community Attributes System (MHICAS), the industry’s most comprehensive database of community attributes and information.

MHVillage is the premier Internet advertising and marketing website for manufactured homes in Land Lease Communities. In 2017 it recorded nearly 25 million visits to MHVillage.com, and was responsible for about $3.5 billion in home sales.

MHVillage also collects and aggregates large amounts of market data about the homes that its customers are selling or renting and about the communities and markets where those homes are located.

Together JLT, MHVillage, and Datacomp now have the expertise and capability to provide community market reports and other market research and intelligence for manufactured home communities that up to now has simply not been possible.

Datacomp now continues to publish JLT Market Reports and expand coverage nationwide.
