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.”

Meine Reise zu #LNG und #Fracking durch die #USA geht zu Ende. Hier auf den Stufen des Lincoln Memorials hat Martin Luther King Jr. seine „I have a dream“-Rede gehalten. Ein guter Ort, um über die Erkenntnisse dieser Reise nachzudenken. Denn auch Rassismus ist ein Thema. (1/14) ImageImage
An der Ostküste habe ich in #Chester eine Community von People of Color getroffen, die einem Umwelt-Rassismus ausgesetzt sind. Hier soll ein #LNG-Terminal für den Export von #Fracking-Gas gebaut werden, nicht in den reicheren und weißen Vororten von #Philadelphia neben an. (2/x)
Dies ist, was Zulene von der Bürgerinitiative #Chester Residents Concerned for Quality Living unserem @Bundeskanzler dazu zu sagen hat. (3/x)

Wie läuft das ab, wenn für den Export von #Fracking-Gas ein neues #LNG-Terminal geplant wird? Das habe ich mir in #Chester angeschaut, einer Kleinstadt an der U.S.-Ostküste nahe #Philadelphia. Hier treffe ich Zulene von den Chester Residents Concerned for Quality Living. (1/x) Image
#Chester ist eine arme Stadt. Hier leben viele People of Color. Schon andere schmutzige Industrien wurden hier angesiedelt, zB eine Müllverbrennungsanlage. Offenbar glaubt die Industrie, dass es nicht viel Widerstand gibt. Reichere und weiße Gegenden bleiben verschont. (2/x)
Nun soll noch ein #LNG-Terminal für den Export von #Fracking-Gas aus #Pennsylvania hinzu kommen. Dafür fehlen bislang Kapazitäten an der Ostküste. Getrieben wird dies auch vom deutschen Energiehunger. (3/x)

August home builder sentiment and sales/prices/starts survey results are in. Top themes: 1) Home price cuts along with other incentives are helping sales (for now). 2) Supply chain is healing as demand drops and builders quickly slow housing starts. Market commentary to follow…
#Austin builder: “A lot of spec inventory to work through. August was a very poor month for sales across the board. Cancellations spiked from July and buyers showed no sense of urgency.”
#Baltimore builder: “Jumbo loan rates below 5% are helping buyers move forward in that segment.”

Federal inmate Khalif Miller said he hadn’t had an attorney visit for his first 19 months, that he was stabbed 10 times & almost killed in an attack & has caught COVID-19 twice while awaiting trial from what he says was political targeting by former US Atty Bill McSwain.
Khalif Miller was arrested on October 28, 2020, & charged along with Carlos Matchett of Atlantic City & Anthony "Ant" Smith, a prominent activist, for allegedly throwing flaming materials into a police car near Philadelphia's City Hall on May 30, 2020.

Calculando el reloj para #WashingtonDC
(3) porque el #CieloAstrológico de una capital tiene influencia para toda la nación al día lunes 4 de julio en el que un sujeto de 21 años abrió fuego contra personas que presenciaban el desfile conmemorativo de independencia en #Chicago, asesinando a siete e hiriendo a decenas.

Day 128 of #Russia's war on #Ukraine.

The illegal, insane, inhumane war which was Putin's choice.

More murder and war crimes today as the little man in the Kremlin orders revenge for the loss if Snake Island

All the news right here in one place, welcome to the daily thread
The revenge from #Russia for the anger at losing #SnakeIsland is an horrendous missile attack on residents in #Odesa/#Odessa region.

17 dead and 31 injured as rescuers work at the site.

Yet another war crime

#RussiaIsATerroristState #StandWithUkraine
#Putin loves symbolism and to leave calling cards.
It's no coincidence that he ordered the murderous strikes on an apartment block and two leisure complexes in #Odesa region with exactly the same delivery as #Kremenchuk - three X-22 missiles fired from Tu-22 strategic bombers.

Let's dive into the demographics of #Philadelphia's new council districts a bit more. Keep in mind these numbers are counting state incarcerated people where they live, so they'll be slightly different than the U.S. Census numbers that City Council used for #redistricting.
Overall, there was little change in racial demographics. The 1st district became a little bit more white. It was already a majority white district. Hispanic and Black are down in the proposed map. Asian slightly up.
The 2nd district became slightly more white, from 40% to 41%. Black unchanged at about 39%. Voting age population shows a bigger difference, at 44% VAP White, and 37% VAP Black. Asian and Hispanic unchanged.

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.”
