Financing Considerations in an Increasing Interest Rate Environment

As we kick off 2018, concerns over rising interest rates are looming, and there are new considerations manufactured housing community owners should take into account when assessing financing options.

This month's forum will focus on the ever-changing world of capital markets and how you can use various loan products to protect yourself in today’s uncertain interest rate environment.

Our guest speakers from Wells Fargo’s Multifamily Capital group will focus on topics such as….

• Projections for Treasury yields and Fed rate hikes in 2018 – how high and how many?

• Floating versus Fixed Rate debt – what are the pros and cons?

• Prepayment penalties – when does it make sense to prepay?

• New lending products including FNMA’s Hybrid ARM

We can all remember when the world of financing and interest rates were not as favorable as they are today. While we don’t want to relive those years, it is important to be aware of market conditions and interest rates that could mean changes that could impact our industry. We are fortunate to have MHET Annual Gold Sponsor Wells Fargo Bank experts share their insights and valued recommendations on the important topic of manufactured community financing.

Park Ownership Educational Workshop Series

Over the past 35 years MHET has focused on the protection of Mobile Home Park/Manufactured Housing Community Owners’ property rights. Key to that goal has always been “education,” not only on political realities impacting their business, but also on the day-to-day operations, which have changed dramatically in the past 35 years. In celebration of our 36th year, we are focusing on an in-depth and unique VIP education series that goes above and beyond what we are able to do at our monthly Forums. This series will cover everything a Park Owner needs to know. Whether you are managing your own park or have a professional company managing your property, it is critically important to know and understand every aspect of the operations.
