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.”

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.”

@keidekay @MaryTheQueenOfC @briebriejoy @marwilliamson It’s fine! I ended up gathering that. I blocked them. I’m already having a horrendous 24 hours within the M4A organizing movement, so I don’t have the energy for this debate.

Allow me to explain.
@keidekay @MaryTheQueenOfC @briebriejoy @marwilliamson Essentially, I feel used up by the Medicare for All movement. I have personally knit over 350 #RedBerets to help unify the M4A community.

I strongly supported the electoral strategy. I have donated a HUGE sum of money for yarn, & to M4A candidate campaign. (1/?)
@keidekay @MaryTheQueenOfC @briebriejoy @marwilliamson I donated many many times to @BernieSanders, then recently I donated to @ninaturner! I have donated to @RebeccaforWA to @CallForCongress and many other M4A candidates/champions.

I am not someone who believes we can afford to completely throw out electoral politics (2/?)

I'm going to try and clack out some of the basics tonight before I go to bed, and return to chat with y'all tomorrow.

I'm a nerdy kid from #Seattle who grew up loving science and art. I drew, sculpted, mosaicked, and photographed, but when it came time to go to University... seattle love
I opted to study science at @Stanford. I was thrilled to get into the research environment, thought I might be a doctor, or do a biology PhD. But pretty quickly realized something was wrong. art and science journey
I had cut art from the equation, and it turns out that is how I process the world.
Spent 2 years trying to force myself into academic tracks I wasn't excited about, and that can really burn a person out.
Things got pretty angsty for a bit. I imagine it was hard to watch. burnout

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.”

GOTTA TAKE A STAND: I hope my fellow journalists know what’s happening out here in the Pacific Northwest.

Hard to keep @MrAndyNgo down.

The images of journalist Andy Ngo being targeted and brutalized by a violent mob is truly disturbing. It could have happened to any one of us in the field. As a fellow Asian American journalist in the Pacific Northwest, I stand with Mr. Ngo during his recovery and urge others...
in the journalism community to publicly condemn this on going hate and harassment. As minority journalists trying to fairly and accurately cover our communities, we also need law enforcement and elected officials to refocus efforts to protect journalists on the front lines.

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.”

For the small number of people who are not totally sick of #minimumwage threads, let me walk you through some of the @UW team's findings for #Seattle now that they've cleared peer review (conditionally accepted, AEJ:EP).

A lot of them are packed into this one picture.
This isn't the analysis that used Synthetic Seattle and counted up the number of jobs paying under some threshold, except it couldn't count jobs at multi-location firms.

This is a longitudinal analysis of individual workers working for low pay in Washington as of early 2015.
We follow these workers and tally up all their jobs, hours, and earnings. Multiple jobs? They all count. Switch to a multi-location employer? That jobs and its hours and earnings count.

We difference their experiences 2x: from workers elsewhere in WA & earlier cohort.

On J20, multiple #Antifa cells coordinated direct action riots & marches in rejection of President Biden.

Here in #Denver, speakers announced: "The solution is to abolish the United States."

These rallies have been largely ignored by MSM.…
These coordinated resistance campaigns had two key points:

1. Biden is equally as unwelcome by anarcho-communists as Donald Trump.

2. The end goal of the North American Antifascist movement is the total abolition of the United States.
Protests led by Antifa cells were coordinated in the following areas areas:

-Denver, Colorado

-San Mateo County, California

-Sacramento, California

-Portland, Oregon

-Seattle, Washington

-Columbus, Ohio
