Analyzing June new home sales & pricing figures from our monthly builder survey. As one builder noted: “It’s not fun to be a builder anymore.” Lumber relief is nice but pick your poison on other issues. Market commentary from across the country to follow...
#Richmond builder: “It's not fun to be a builder anymore. Cost pressure is killing us. Not only will builders like myself who take 12-24 months to build a house lose margin from increases, but the affordability is becoming a major issue.”
#Atlanta builder: “Costs have driven up prices & we’re no longer preselling. We will not sell a home until frame stage, so our sales numbers are off for June while awaiting framing stage.”

Here's a housing🧵to chew on over weekend. Mid-June update from 100+home builders across country. 1) rumblings of price ceiling. 2) slightly shrinking pool of qualified buyers. 3) some home releases not selling out immediately. 4) normal summer slowing as vacations take priority.
#Austin builder: “Some interest lists are shrinking & others are not. Seeing buyers who are no longer able or willing to afford the monthly payment. Definitely seeing attrition here. Frustration that prices continued going up without an opportunity to purchase.”
#Dallas builder: “Interest lists are definitely shrinking because of pricing. Some drop off is happening due to price. But the re-sale market is still so tight it hasn’t dropped substantially. Extremely concerned about pricing going forward.”

New home sales fell in May, Y/Y & M/M. Theme of the month was sales decline by builder design. Few comments on demand slowing or skittish buyers, even w/new home prices +18% Y/Y nationally (survey record). Builder commentary from across the country per our survey to follow...
#Nashville builder: “Gapped out. Sales resume in June as new communities & phases start to open. By moving ability to contract on inventory homes later to finished drywall stage (window installation stage previously), expect sales to show continued decline. Decline by design.”
#Charlotte builder: “Paused sales from mid-May to mid-June in all communities & will selectively release homes for sale in the last 2 weeks of June & coming months. Sales look lower vs. last month but was capped due to limited lot availability & no inventory.”

Multiple North Carolina city elections may be delayed until 2022 because delayed census results don’t leave enough time to adjust city council & other municipal voting districts to reflect population changes.

1/ #NCPol
Voting districts for state, county, and city elections are redrawn using census results to ensure that voting districts are roughly equal in population.

Congressional districts will also be redrawn as part of reapportionment & adjusting for population changes.

North Carolina cities that may have city elections postponed to 2022 because US Census results have been delayed include: #Raleigh #Cary #Charlotte #ElizabethCity #Fayetteville #Greensboro #Greenville

Here's May mid-month home builder channel check I hinted at earlier. Builders are pushing prices w/little pushback, though some starting. Some builders are using price escalators & highest/best offer. Many limiting pre-sales, shifting to spec, & pricing home later in build cycle.
#Dallas builder: “Not selling build jobs in May, starting specs only, and not selling until drywall. Costs are too out of control for us to take the inflation risk on build jobs. So sales are way down.”
#SanAntonio builder: “Only selling specs at Sheetrock stage. Last month, it was frame stage.”

Some interesting housing color from mid-April around the country home builder channel check. Bunch of market commentary to follow...will try to hit most top markets.
#SaltLakeCity home builder mid-April color: “Still have 10x buyers to available homes to buy. Went to 'highest/ best' offer system March 1st & offers over asking price are shocking. Most offers are 10+% over ask, that's after raised base prices $10K to $20K+ with each release.”
#Austin home builder mid-April color: “Super high demand. Volume controlled with release process, otherwise would be unbearable. Some price increases are $100K between releases.”

The good people of #Georgia should continue to press their representatives to Shift to a Maine-style Allocation of Electoral College Votes

The #DemocratCorruptionNetworks and the partners in the #LiberalMedia will ALWAYS try to CHEAT in Atlanta
#DemocratCorruptionNetworks Always Play Games in Areas where they have Dominant Control -- seek to Run Up the Score and Tip a Winner Takes All State

#Miami & #Broward County, #Florida
Strong #ElectionIntegrity Reforms are Just One Part of the Game to STOP the #DemocratCorruptionNetworks

We must assume they will find a way to CHEAT. And we must minimize the threat of Tipping an entire State by Cheating in a few Key Cities as was done in 2020

A thread of coronavirus references that can be found in entertainment media prior to the "outbreak" of 2019.
A masked Roman charioteer by the name of "Coronavirus" and his co-driver "Bacillus" compete in a chariot race across Italy in the 2017(!) published book "Asterix and the Chariot Race". Remember, Italy was the first country to enforce a national lockdown after the outbreak. Image
"2020 combined with coronavirus, bodies stacking" Lyrics from the 2013 (!) song "Pandemic" by Dr Creep and produced by Blaq Masq, from the album "I Am The Storm".

No place that made me exists anymore. #charlotte
White people have completely, totally taken over black Beatties Ford Rd. But I guess they have BLM signs so it’s even.
How HBCU Johnson C Smith will thrive in a now white neighborhood remains to be seen

It’s Friday, time to talk about Operation Save America’s fallen angel: Flip Benham! #OSAunmasked #AbortionIsEssential #HumanGarbage Image
You might know Flip from his greatest hits like: standing in front of abortion clinics in this Zorro mask, because decency is a joke to him or getting arrested for threatening people and pretending it’s a free speech thing. #Charlotte #OSAunmasked… Image
Flip got some of the attention he craves this year when the #AKAJaneRoe documentary exposed that the anti-abortion a-holes, Flip included, had paid Norma McCorvey to lie about her “conversion” to the anti-abortion side. He showed no remorse. #OSAunmasked…

So, I am watching the @CLTCityCouncil Safe Communities Committee meeting (Stuff about Police) and I have some thoughts. CC: @BraxtonWinston @cltuprising @queencitynerve
First off, committee chair, @Larken makes clear he is not prioritizing real oversight of @CMPD
Council member Renee’ Johnson has now asked twice for review of @CMPD political policing and violence against peaceful protestors to be be prioritized and @Larken has pushed her off, in favor of garbage like the non-reform 8 can’t wait garbage.
Frederico Rios is presenting on community feedback event. He said first priority is “prevention of crime”. Police DO NOT prevent crime. They never have, they never will. They do a generally poor job of “solving” serious crime. CC: @kristie_1979 @avitale @SAFEcoalitionNC

2. How did it happen? A large man followed a frantic woman inside #Ephraim’s #Charlotte, North Carolina #karate studio claiming he was there to pick her up. She repeatedly insisted that she did not know him and that he “tried to #kidnap her.…
3. The man refused to leave and tried to force himself further into the #Dojo. In #Ephraim's words: "I then went into action defending myself and got him out of the #Dojo...Once outside he attempted to attack again and was dealt with accordingly."…
