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 
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.
