Lovin’ La Vida Grande! Plus Iowa upset?

January 7th, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

The BUZZ is on because it will be 'show time' in Louisville this week!

The extended weather forecast for next week indicates high temperatures in the 40s and 50s. The show is all indoors at the South Wing of the fine Kentucky Exhibition Center, so no matter what is happening outside, it will be comfortable indoors. Pre-registrations ran hot this year, about 20% more than the same period a year ago. Total pre-registrations for all sides of the industry total 1016. Normally hundreds more arrive at the doors and sign up on site. For those who do, bring your business cards with you to speed the registration process. What all this means is that Louisville 2012 could set a recent attendance record!

Why all the excitement? Why all the buzz?

Many factors.

CEO and consumer confidence seems to be rising, according to recent reports. Demand for housing is also showing 'signs of life.'

For those in the Manufactured Housing Industry who felt that financing was a need, Louisville will feature all sorts of financing options, some of them will be new or at least new to many of your peers and/or you.

As an example, one lender – First Guarantee Mortgage Corporation – will be part of the Wednesday morning finance forum panel on manufactured home lending, and will talk about their MH Home Loan program that features, among other factors, 'no minimum credit score.' The same firm offers manufactured and modular home retailers two different loan programs that offer legitimate “no down payment” financing, including low rate loans to those with low incomes.

If a person can write up more new business with that type of financing, ouch, something must be wrong!

The full line up of seminars is linked on this page:


Be Sure! Make More Home Sales in 2012.


Are you in the MHC business? Do you have vacancies you want to fill through home sales? Make a special note to attend Seminar #4 on Wednesday. A financing plan will be unveiled there that can be a powerful magnet for Manufactured Home Land Lease Community Owners and Operators. For those ready to do what it takes, this will be a game changer.

Iowa Upset?

Channel 8 in Des Moines Iowa reports that a caucus poll worker Edward True, 28, of Moulton, asserts that the published result from the 53-person caucus at the Garrett Memorial Library, Mitt Romney received two votes. But according to the Iowa Republican Party's website, True's precinct cast 22 votes for Romney. "This is huge," True said. "It essentially changes who won." While no official word on this will likely take place until the vote is certified, True said: "Numbers that I personally witnessed being counted and assisted in counting and am certain are right," he said. As a side note True is a self-proclaimed Ron Paul supporter.

With rumors that President Obama may dump Biden, sending him over to be Secretary of State and making Hillary Clinton his running mate in 2012, and with Rick Santorum surging in New Hampshire and South Carolina, with Newt making a come back fight against Mitt Romney's lead, the 2012 election cycle will be interesting indeed. If you missed it,catch the opportunity this election cycle could have for manufactured housing event planners here.

Love the Grand Life by going to Louisville. You will get out of it everything that you put into it, and more. Come to learn, come to do business, come to network. Come!

My team and I would be pleased to see you and your associates in Louisville. Bring your business cards, if you didn't pre-register, you can sign up at the door. If I can bring my wife and our little guy, you can be there with your loved ones too! When we aren't busy elsewhere, you can find our team members in booth #119, right near the front doors. # #
