Land is the most important yet least transparent part of homebuilding. To help, here’s commentary from land brokers across the country per our July survey. Top themes: 1) Builders going further out for deals. 2) Bigger land deals are back. 3) Development delays & lot shortages.
#SaltLakeCity land broker: “You can't get all the lots you need even when you overpay.”
#SanAntonio land broker: “Getting a vaccine approved took less time than getting land entitled.”

On board the #ISS many activities regarding #Pirs undocking have been canceled indicating that the undocking tomorrow based on the current status of #MLM #Nauka has been canceled. #unconfirmed #Exp65
Ok so the OPM (optimal propulsion maneuver) to reorient the #ISS to the undocking attitude for #Pirs is still on schedule! MCC #Houston reminded @Aki_Hoshide to close the window shutters for that during morning DPC (daily planning conference)
Since I am getting many retweets and likes on that tweet I like to remind everyone that this is just what I think I understoond on the translation loop during the morning DPC on the #ISS livestream. Let's wait everyone and see what the day holds up for us.

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.”

This is one of the WORST interviews on China you will ever see.

Stoltenberg is well aware of the THREATS that the ChiCom Networks around the world pose to Civilized Society...

and yet he Dances like a Scared Bitch around the #1 GeoPolitical Crisis


If NATO Partners do NOT recognize the THREAT of the ChiCom Networks growing influence around the world, then HARD MEASURES will be required to FORCE them to come around
Playing "nice" with China was still possible before the Rise of Xi in 2013

But the true nature of the ChiCom Networks has been Exposed

They are an ENEMY of Civilized People ALL AROUND THE WORLD

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.”

Some fresh home builder commentary for top #Texas markets. In general, buyer interest lists aren’t shrinking much, and if a few drop-off, builders are easily backfilling. Drumbeat a bit louder on prices getting too high. Demand still pretty nuts.🧵to follow...
#Houston builder: “Buyer interest lists are shrinking slightly. Likely too much price pressure, it’s out of hand.”
#Houston builder: “We’ll be metering sales again in June.”

#BAPS के समर्थक बता रहे हैं कि गलती उनकी नहीं, बल्कि एक अमेरिकन कंपनी- 'कुन्हा कंस्ट्रक्शन' की है। हम में से कई मज़दूर BAPS के लिए काम करने के लिए #NewJersey के साथ- #Atlanta, #Houston, #Chicago भी गए हैं। ज़मीनी सच्चाई-
घटनाक्रम- 1. रोज़गार का ऑफर राजस्थान में मिलता है 2. BAPS के अहमदाबाद ऑफिस में ज़रूरी दस्तावेज़ीकरण 3. US निर्माण साइट पर कारावास 4. काम की शर्तों पर बातचीत। इस दौरान मजदूर BAPS के प्रतिनिधि से ही बात करते हैं- 'कुन्हा' के बारे में कभी नहीं सुना।
बिचौलिये पर आरोप लगाना बहुत पुरानी तरकीब है। ताकतवर पूँजीवादी, छोटे उद्योग/बिचौलियों पर इलज़ाम लगा कर हट जाते हैं। इसलिए ज़रूरी है कि हम साथ खड़े रहे।

Defendants claim that BAPS is innocent, & Cunha Construction middleman, an American company is the one who went rogue.
Several among us have been to BAPS #Atlanta, #Houston, #Chicago, besides #New Jersey sites. REALITY CHECK from the ground - a thread
CHRONOLOGY -1 Offer of employment in #Rajasthan, 2. Workers made to sign papers at BAPS #Ahmedabad office 3. Confinement at US construction sites, 4 rules over work conditions. In all of this workers interface is with BAPS representatives, never heard of #Cunha
Blaming the #middleman is the oldest trick of trade. Powerful industries get away by dumping blame on the smaller fish. So it is important that we say together #BAPSnotmiddleman

1/4 After a 10-year wait, the family of an Afghan interpreter who was killed by the Taliban for his work with the US military is one crucial step closer to resettling in #Houston.

The family is nearing safety thanks to @combinedarmsus + @IRAP.…
2/4 The Mohammed family case underscores the deadly cost of long visa wait times for Afghan & Iraqi interpreters & others who served alongside the US military.

Appx 18,000 Afghan families have pending visa apps to come to the US, as they live in life-threatening conditions.
3/4 The Sept 2021 deadline to withdraw troops from Afghanistan has renewed calls from many (like @RepJasonCrow @LIRSorg) to quickly grant visas/evacuate Afghan allies who risked their lives.

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.”

Some people have pointed out the hardship of accumulating collective traumas in #Houston due to weather related events. It started for me in 2015, when I had to sleep in my car when the city flooded in a couple of hours around me. 1/
As I type it I feel stupid about it. I was able to be an immigrant in a city that has also been incredibly generous. I had a car which is definitely a privilege. I was in grad school in the United States while others have nothing. 2/
But the problem is that being grateful doesn't erase how things feel to you, how fucking scared I was that night. It doesn't erase the fact that back in Sonora there were days we didn't have water for days too. 3/

Good morning. How is everyone doing?

57% of #Houston region customers are still without power. There's been little improvement in the past 48 hours.

Remember: Practically none of this is due to damaged lines. TX simply isn't producing enough electricity.
Seeing a lot of stories like this. Frustrating. We'll be pressing CenterPoint today on how they decide who to shut off, and how they can be better about warning residents.
Asking on behalf of 2.5 million Texans still without power.

NEW: With supply still too low, CenterPoint is trying new strategy for #Houston: shifting outages.
Bottom line: If you’ve had no power for 2 days, you may get it. If you’ve had it, you may lose it for 1-2 days.…
These are NOT rolling blackouts (brief, rotating 1hr outages). This is really just a robbing Peter to pay Paul situation.
And it’s def happening. We just lost power. Typed this on my laptop by candlelight, just like the Founding Fathers.
Hearing stories like these now. (And hope you have better luck @lomikriel!)

HOUSTON CUSTOMERS: @ERCOT_ISO has declared a statewide power generation shortfall emergency and directed us to start controlled rotating outages in our #Houston area service territory. #hounews /1
Most every CenterPoint Energy metered customer will experience a rotating outage. Rotating outages could last from 15 minutes to more than an hour. @ERCOT_ISO /2
Customers who rely on electricity for life-sustaining equipment should have a back-up plan in place. @ERCOT_ISO #hounews /3

I want to say this is one of the largest mass #COVID19 vaccinations to date. Congratulations @SylvesterTurner and sincere thank you @HoustonFire @houstonpolice @RODEOHOUSTON @astros and to the volunteers. Hope it becomes a new model for the nation.
I’m glad this happened here in #Houston. Given our national failures in containing COVID19 in 2020, our backs are against the wall: Vaccinating our way out is our last hope. For it to happen mass immunizations like this must become the new normal
Increasingly I hope we can pivot away from fussy and confusing 1b 1c restrictions and open up the nation to vaccinations. We won’t vaccinate the necessary 2-3 million Americans per day by dissecting lunch checks and asking who ordered the salad nicoise and who had the turkey club
