1 in 4 flippers sold their homes for LESS $$$ than expected in our 4Q22 survey. Elevated rates and falling home prices are scaring buyers wary of buying on the way down, but investors are clearly looking to acquire now and refinance later. 🧵Flipper comments to follow ->
#Austin flipper: “Austin has an overinflated housing market that is compounded by elevated interest rates. This has resulted in a downward spiral in qualified buyers. The fix and flip market is pretty much gone. Prices in most areas are down about -30% or more in recent months.”
#Baltimore flipper: “We’re looking forward to a big 2023. I hate to say it, but a lot of it’s going to be on the backs of consumers with hardships, or circumstances where they have no other options. But that’s our bread and butter.”

2 innocents killed for space at Downey California ACC 😡
MAROON, (L) "rescue only" for reported "incident" only given 18 days in the shelter. 😞
GEMINI , made "ro" near the end so "they" wouldn't feel so bad 🙄
Run free.
🆘 In order to save more shelter dogs, and especially "rescue only" (RO) #dogs like poor departed Maroon & Gemini, we need #doglovers to apply to rescues to foster in general & not just for specific pups. See my pinned tweet for #SoCal rescue links 🙏
I'll include some of the more active "all-breed" general purpose #SoCal rescues here.
This rescue has said quite a few #DowneyDogs lately

#LosAngeles area fosters needed🙏
Anyone recognize the sweet girl below⬇? It's CHALULA, fka MOLLY when we helped her break out of Downey #California ACC. She's 1 of 4 senior #dogs who Golden Years Dog Sanctuary needs new fosters 4.
More ⬇
CHALULA again. Golden Years would love a forever home for her - she's a little younger than most of their rescues. 8 yo, very active, friendly, good with other large #dogs
CELSIUS, 10 yo frosted face who was rescued from Downey's other shelter, SEAACA. She does best as the only dog in the home.

13 months at South #LosAngeles AS for this very good 12 yo 95 lb Senior who doesn't act like one. #SoCal #doglovers , please visit him this weekend, open 11-5 both Sat & Sun.
Give him a forever home before Christmas 🙏 More ⬇

Don't think you can afford food for a 95 lb dog or vet care for a senior? Be RINGO's forever foster. A rescue will pay for everything; you provide the home & love. Email Susan at
if you might help 🙏

An excellent article about the overcrowding at SEAACA - the "other" shelter in Downey #California . Article includes video, contact info & link to the website. 27 #dogs in danger & over a dozen #bunnies 🐇Please read & help if you can 🆘🙏
#AdoptDontShop #dogsoftwitter
The shelter in Downey I normally share is the #LosAngeles County ACC. It's miles ahead of SEAACA in terms of the quality of the staff & care given - SEAACA is considered one of the worst shelters in #SoCal .
I have shared some of their #dogs previously, but it's just too much.
We used to have a SEAACA advocate on Twitter, but she is rescuing cats now. SEAACA does have an excellent advocate network - they work almost exclusively on Face Book.

Big takeaways from our survey of fix-and-flippers last week: 1) Rates have massively slowed transactions and prices are falling broadly. 2) Lots of talk about flippers changing strategies, holding-and-renting instead of flipping, or exiting the space entirely.

#Atlanta flipper: “Many highly-leveraged flippers will need to go out of pocket to sell or will default on no-recourse loans. We will not see improvement until the 2nd half of 2024. Many will not make it to that point and there will be some bargains for cash-flush investors.”
#Baltimore flipper: “Sellers are still not reacting to market shifts. Sellers need to lower prices.”

“Housing is significantly affected by these higher rates.”
-Jay Powell today about the Fed’s impact on housing

Every month our team surveys 1,000+ agents across the US on what they're seeing in their local markets.

Short 🧵 on local housing markets from our monthly survey:
#Houston, TX: “Home prices have most first-time home buyers priced out of home ownership. It's even worse with the higher interest rates decreasing what the buyers can qualify for.”
#Denver, CO: “Cost of living [and] interest rate [increases] are keeping most buyers from buying.”

This is some deeply offensive whataboutism, @ladailynews.

Giving headline space to political rumor and innuendo about @KarenBassLA when the point of the press conference was to advocate for survivors to get the information Caruso *publicly promised.*…
Instead of keeping his promise to Tyndall survivors, students, and alumni, Caruso *led* the cover up of the independent investigation results.

He’s been out here citing “experts” (I actually am one), claiming they told him making the findings available would hurt survivors. 🙄
But in deposition, under oath, Caruso called his refusal to share the independent investigation results with even the plaintiff’s lawyers a “business decision.” He also invoked attorney-client privilege. So Trustees who happen to be lawyers *legally represent* the institution?

First, there was October magic.

Trea Turner, the second Dodgers hitter, walloped a fastball from Mike Clevinger and drove it into a left-field pavilion that was still filling up with stunned fans.… Image

The Dodgers grabbed a 5-0 lead but their bats disappeared. Julio Urías threw four good innings but his curveball collapsed. The Dodgers needed a dozen outs from an anonymously brilliant bullpen.…
