Average Sales Price of New Manufactured Homes in the South

The average sales price for multi-section homes in the South Census Region according to the Manufactured Housing Survey (MHS) moved up to $169,900 in April, a +10.0% increase from the previous month and +$700 above the top of our forecasted price range for the month.

The average multi-section price was up +39.0% over March of 2021 in nominal terms and up +28.4% after adjusting for inflation.* The Producer Price Index (PPI) for manufactured home builders moved down in August for the second straight month, so we expect prices to level off as the late summer data comes in. This would have been the third straight month of declines in the index, but the June number was revised up.

The average single-section price moved down -2.0% from the previous month, coming in at $83,500 which was just +$200 over the point forecast.

The average sales price for single-section homes was up +23.2% over April of 2021 nominally, and up +13.9% after adjusting for inflation.*

Using a regression model based on the most recent producer price index for manufactured housing data, the forecasted average multi-section sales price is now estimated at $159,200 (+/- $8,900) for multi-sections and $87,000 (+/- $5,500) for single-section homes*.
