Manufactured Housing REITs: Find Shelter Amid Volatility

  • Powered by the macroeconomic tailwinds associated with the affordable housing shortage, Manufactured Housing REITs were the best-performing real estate sector of the past decade, and it wasn't particularly close.

  • The sector produced cumulative returns that nearly doubled the next closest REIT sector. MH REITs outperformed the REIT average for a remarkable seventh straight year in 2019, surging nearly 50%.
