#Atlanta builder: “Someone turned out the lights on our sales in June!”
#Austin builder: “Sales have fallen off a cliff. We’re selling 1/3 of what we sold in March and April. Trades are more willing to negotiate pricing since market has adjusted significantly past 60 days.”

If this isn't newsworthy, we don't know what is. WHY WON'T THE #MSM WARN US that frequent #WetBulb & #HeatDome events will cause mass deaths in the #PXNW, #Phoenix, #NewOrleans, #Ozarks & poor nations in the #GlobalSouth. gizmodo.com/india-heatwave…
Take a look at the impacts that #ClimateChange will have on all of the United States, then ask the #MSM #newsmedia why they're not warning you about it. projects.propublica.org/climate-migrat…
What's the deal, #FoxNews? You love scaring your viewers. Why not tell them the truth about this? Why not tell them that their property will be uninsurable unless we halt #climatechange? #MarchToTheMedia projects.propublica.org/climate-migrat…

3rd part of @adaptivemobile series on the mobile battlefield of #Ukraine

@RowlandCorr and I cover what may happen in the future. In particular we look at the little-known Russian separatist Mobile Operators Phoenix (Фенікс) and Lugacom (Лугаком)

blog.adaptivemobile.com/the-mobile-net…
2/10
The unlicensed Phoenix (Фенікс) & Lugacom (Лугаком) opcos were formed from the separatist seizure of Ukrainian Mobile Operator equipment after 2014 invasion of the #Donbas

They have been growing as the licensed Ukrainian Operators have pulled out

euobserver.com/investigations…
3/10
Since the new 2022 invasion started, there have been reports of them expanding into newly occupied areas of #Luhansk & #Donetsk

Plotting these reports against current frontlines shows this seems plausible. Credit to @nrg8000 for making the frontlines shapefiles available

I came to #China with a smile, an open mind and heart, and left my ‘conditioning’ and pre-conceptions behind.. I’m still smiling. Best move I ever made. Never looked back. I’ve felt warmth, hospitality, kindness and camaraderie every single day. 🥰🥰🥰bestchinainfo.com/news/is-china-…
For the record: Nobody pays me for my words, thoughts or feelings, opinion or cogitations. I speak from my love for the people of China - for #China and sometimes I speak against the relentless moronic parroted propaganda against a country that is now my homeland... ctd:
bestchinainfo.com/news/is-china-… and keeps me + over 1.4 billion other people safe, free and happy. A country that genuinely has the best interests of it’s people as core reason for being. A country that will be a genuine friend to all countries that seek friendship. This is #China #Truth

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.”

It occurred to me that some may think I “waste” time on Twitter (as I primarily Tweet during my evenings/weekends when I am not working). As a #Hyperlexic , my first & most natural language is actually writing because I take in such inordinate amounts of sensory data… 🧵
…so, when I Tweet I am actually doing a number of things which folx may not realize: 1) I am processing my 💡ideas 💡, some of which are incorporated into my 📕 projects: they may be saved for later or might even inspire a cathartic impromptu writing session…
2) I am engaging with a global community of advocates & amazing humans of multiple ages, across all time zones & representing diverse intersecting lenses specifically because my specialization is understanding perspectives which are different from my own, and this enriches me…

Some new data & market commentary on who's buying land from our 3Q-2021 land broker survey. Build-for-rent operators snapping up 15% of raw land in #Florida & outbidding home builders on deals across many markets. Couple charts & market commentary to follow...
Here's the chart where we asked land brokers if they've observed build-for-rent operators outbidding home builders on land deals in their market. 46% said 'yes' when we rolled it up nationally, and as high as 77% in the Southeast.
#Phoenix land broker: “A lot of speculators in the build-for-rent space that are tying properties up & going through entitlement process, then flipping the property for an increased price. Equity requirements for the build-for-rent projects are getting larger.”

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.”

How I love Prince Mangosuthu Buthelezi, let me count the ways:

🧵
Prince Buthelezi dies not bit around the bush, he tells it as it is that Adv Sikhakhane SC and team are the reasons former Pres, JG Zuma, is in jail. That they MISLED him and were SMILING after that.

Did Adv Muzi Sikhakhane SC smiled his way to the bank?
He says his interview on #Phoenix was manipulated by those politicians who feed on racial divisions. That there was 'no nexus whatsoever' with his condemning of the looting and the #PhoenixMassacre...

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.”
