Abstract The Survey of Manufactured (Mobile) Home Placements collects data on the characteristics of newly manufactured homes placed for residential use including number, sales price, location, and other selected characteristics. HUD uses the statistics to respond to a Congressional mandate in the Housing and Community Development Act of 1980, 42 U.S.C. 5424 note, which requires HUD to collect and report manufactured home sales and price information for the nation, census regions, states, and selected metropolitan areas and to monitor whether new manufactured homes are being placed on owned rather than rented lots. HUD also used these data to monitor total housing production and its affordability. Furthermore, the Survey of Manufactured (Mobile) Home Placements serves as the basis for HUD’s mandated indexing of loan limits. Section 2145 (b) of the Housing and Economic Recovery Act (HERA) of 2008 requires HUD to develop a method of indexing to annually adjust Title I manufactured home loan limits. This index is based on manufactured housing price data collected by this survey. Section 2145 of the HERA of 2008 also amends the maximum loan limits for manufactured home loans insured under Title I. HUD implemented the revised loan limits, as shown below, for all manufactured home loans for which applications are received on or after March 3, 2009. Loan type Purpose MANUFACTURED HOME IMPROVEMENT LOAN. MANUFACTURED HOME UNIT(S) LOT LOAN .......................................

I. Abstract

    The Survey of Manufactured (Mobile) Home Placements collects data 
on the characteristics of newly manufactured homes placed for 
residential use including number, sales price, location, and other 
selected characteristics. HUD uses the statistics to respond to a 
Congressional mandate in the Housing and Community Development Act of 
1980, 42 U.S.C. 5424 note, which requires HUD to collect and report 
manufactured home sales and price information for the nation, census

new manufactured homes are being placed on owned rather than rented

its affordability.
    Furthermore, the Survey of Manufactured (Mobile) Home Placements 
serves as the basis for HUD's mandated indexing of loan limits. Section 
2145 (b) of the Housing and Economic Recovery Act (HERA) of 2008
