We @JBREC just surveyed 400+ flippers about #fixandflip conditions in partnership with Flatiron Realty Capital and @SundaeHQ.
Key takeaway: There is a TON of competition for deals right now.
MARKET COMMENTARY THREAD 🧵 ->
#LasVegas flipper: “Market is oversaturated with inexperienced investors due to an increase of “gurus.” Supply is low, demand is high, and prices are inflated 20%+ over ARV. Not sustainable.”
#Phoenix flipper: “Phoenix is a very active market with home prices on the rise. The competition is aggressive.”

On the 35th annual celebration of Dr. King in Jan. 2020, the Colorado Poor People’s Campaign hosted a rally coinciding the city’s official rally to highlight how they believe “the legacy of Dr. King has been co-opted by capitalism and corporatism.”
Watch our stream from #MLKDay in Jan. 2020 in #Denver here---> pscp.tv/UR_Ninja/1LyxB…
The first speaker at the 2020 rally was Ari from @BLM5280 (Black Lives Matter 5280) who reminded the crowd that just before MLK was assassinated, he and others “called for a unification of the poor.”

Lyndon McLeod, 47, shot + killed 5 people + wounded 2 on Monday in #Denver. Police are stating that McLeod "targeted his victims based on previous personal + business dealings." McLeod's social media shows interactions with Richard Spencer, Andy Ngo, Cernovich + far-Right groups.
McLead, under the pen-name Roman McClay, built up a cult-following after publishing the book "Sanction," which blended scenes of murder and sexual assault with Alt-Right and neo-reactionary politics, much akin to the works of figures like Jack Donovan.
Here is one review of the book. "An angry alt-right wolf wrapped in science fiction wool."

Denver Mass Shooter, Lyndon McLeod Aka @roman_mcclay, wrote pieces in the manosphere and collaborated with many fascists like AltRight and male supremacist star, Jack Donovan. McLeod used Fascist symbology frequently in his work...
...It seems @ZubyMusic and Jack Donovan (Operation Werewolfs/Wolves of vinland (fascist group)) have quickly deleted thier podcasts with #Denver mass shooter Lyndon McLeod Aka @mcclay_roman.

I may have been wrong about @ZubyMusic deleting podcast with McLeod. It seems the pod went private, but is still up. @ZubyMusic had a bunch of his followers hype up McLeod to bring him on his podcast. They praised the mass shooter, before he went on killing spree

Monthly pulse of resale housing market still rapid according to 4,500 agents we just surveyed. Top 3 themes: 1) Bit of market normalizing. 2) Skittish sellers fearing nowhere to move. 3) End of travel ban boosting international buyers. Commentary across the country to follow…
#Houston resale agent: “A lot of people are not listing because they don't know where they are going next. Seems that many people listed too high even for a sellers' market, so I am seeing more price reductions now than earlier in the year.”
#Orlando resale agent: “Our buyer pool is increasing. We see more buyers from the north connecting with us as they plan to visit the area from the fourth quarter to the first quarter of next year.”

Fresh October home builder survey results. Top themes: 1) Builders are finally lifting sales caps (though not all). 2) Lack of lots & land development delays will hold back growth in 2022. 3) Most builders expect prices to keep rising. Market commentary to follow…
#ColoradoSprings builder: “One cautious trend to watch is single-family rental businesses paying more for land than builders. This will suck up trade capacity & supply at a time we can't afford it.”
#Denver builder: “Traffic & sales definitely slowing down, but also following a more seasonal pattern as compared to 2020. Resale inventory is still historically low. Rents are skyrocketing again.”

Ten years after 29-year-old Black man Alonzo Ashley had a fatal encounter with #Denver Police at the @DenverZoo, his family, friends, and the greater community finally received some justice. Check out our video here--->🎥🎞️
Although no criminal charges were ever filed against anyone involved, on October 1, 2021, a water fountain and cooling station were unveiled near the spot where Ashley took his last breaths, and the Denver Zoo finally apologized for the tragedy.
On July 18, 2011, Ashley was at the zoo with his girlfriend. The temperature that day was in the 90s, and by late afternoon, according to Ashley’s girlfriend, he was highly overheated and vomited.

Just published September home builder survey results (sales, prices, costs, communities, etc.). Big themes: 1) Supply chain, supply chain, supply chain. 2) Monthly price hikes no longer the norm. 3) Some of the hottest markets sounding toppy. Market commentary to follow…
#Austin builder: “No end in sight for labor & material issues. Told by logistics guy last week that his company believes it will take at least a year to get the supply chain back to working.”
#Austin builder: “Availability of windows has limited closings this year & availability of appliances has caused closings to slide to a later month. Availability of paint is stressing Q4 closings & causing even more bunching toward late in the year.”

Companies tied to housing revising guidance due to supply chain. Commentary from our builder survey this month indicates things getting worse before they get better. Homes sitting, waiting for materials (dead days). Big delays in windows. Delta outbreaks. In sum, a crapshoot. 🧵
#Nashville builder: “It's a crap shoot. Some municipalities will issue permits in 1 week, & others are 6-9 months behind. Supply chain is a mess. Windows are now 7 months out, cabinets are 6 months out, etc.”
#Chicago builder: “Build cycle increased due to backordered materials including bathtubs, appliances, & ceramic tile. Trades are much more limited in availability & now have some ‘dead days’ with no activity.”

Story by @DenverChannel on impacts of recent wildfire smoke in #Denver. A few tips 👇. (1/4)

My only time for the interview was during baseball practice with three kids at the park! Amused & glad @CB_Cotton found a creative way to use the baseball shots!

2/ But there are ways to reduce your exposure to wildfire smoke. My new go-to link is here by @etgall: elliott-gall.medium.com/wildfires-and-….

Tight-fitting, HQ masks & room filters (HEPA or DIY) can help a lot. I have several DIY fans running in my house right now:
3/ Also, to get an idea for how bad the smoke from #wildfires will be in your area, there are some great tools available online for free. My favorite is the AirNow Smoke/Fire Map: fire.airnow.gov. Other tools also below.

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.”

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.”

Breaking:

#Denver public schools required teachers to attend a #CriticalRaceTheory workshop, during which educators had to "identify their privilege" using determining factors such as race/sex.

The CRT training was leaked to Joey Camp.

Will be writing a full article today.
The documents above are just the tip of the iceberg.
Teachers were also provided with a PDF detailing the "daily effects of white privilege."
