Modular and Manufactured Home Shipments Statistics  for the First Half of the Year are in -and They are Way Up. 

Manufactured home shipments from manufacturers to South Carolina are up 14.8% over the same time last year.  That percentage compares the first six months of this year with the first six months of 2012.

Modular Shipments for the first two quarters of ’13 up are 40.8% over last year.

The numbers are still modest compared to the glory days of the 1990’s but the trend is in the right direction and has been for the last three years, with shipments each year outpacing the year before.

1019 manufactured homes were shipped January through June this year.  Additionally 128 residential modular homes were sold.  It should also be noted that the majority of manufactured homes are multiple-section, compared to about 20% in the 90’s.  Today’s statistics are watermelons compared to oranges in terms of number of floors and total value of homes sold. Also, the repossession rate is now very low, so the number of sales that “stick” also makes each sale statistically more important.
