Foremost Releases Newest Mobile Home Market Facts

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich., Dec. 11, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Foremost Insurance Group, the market leader for mobile home insurance in the nation recently released their newest Mobile Home Market Facts study. This study reports on lifestyles and trends of mobile and manufactured home living and is one-of-a-kind in the industry.

The Foremost® Mobile Home Market Facts is a valuable tool in understanding and marketing to the needs of mobile home owners, renters and landlords and is used countrywide by manufactured home dealers, industry professionals and associations to better reach and serve the market.

"This study helps Foremost provide the best possible coverage and service to our customers by understanding their needs," says Jeff Bair, head of Foremost merchandising and business development. "We have continued to evolve this study to make sure the data we collect is relevant and useful to the entire manufactured home industry and to our independent agents throughout the country."

The survey gathers information on everything from social media interaction of mobile home owners to how they shop for their insurance. One of many answers that may surprise industry professionals is that of those surveyed who plan to move or sell their residence, 35% expect a mobile home to be their next residence, a 4% increase from 2008.

This study has been conducted every three years since 1979 and the latest 2012 Mobile Home Market Facts report is available for free at www.Foremost.com/mobile-home-market-facts.
