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.”

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.”

Here's May mid-month home builder channel check I hinted at earlier. Builders are pushing prices w/little pushback, though some starting. Some builders are using price escalators & highest/best offer. Many limiting pre-sales, shifting to spec, & pricing home later in build cycle.
#Dallas builder: “Not selling build jobs in May, starting specs only, and not selling until drywall. Costs are too out of control for us to take the inflation risk on build jobs. So sales are way down.”
#SanAntonio builder: “Only selling specs at Sheetrock stage. Last month, it was frame stage.”

Here’s on the ground local home builder commentary from across the country per our April survey. A lot of builders are pressing the pause button &/or slowing things down until construction costs moderate & they can catch up with sales. Worries about buyer price ceilings too...
#Chicago home builder commentary: “We sold all of the homes we had in early 2021 & haven’t started anything new, & may not due to the cost of construction. Can’t hold pricing for clients longer than 45 days with rising material pricing.”
#Nashville home builder commentary: “Pray for lower lumber prices.”

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.”

THREAD: Hillsborough County #Florida—don’t answer your door.

Tampa-area GOP will be doorknocking Sat. morning. If they follow the GOP mantra, they might not wear masks.

#COVID19 is NOT the time to do this!

@HCFLDems @ehcdclub @PinellasDems @IndivisibleEHil @IndivisTampaBay Image
2) Current #COVID19 numbers for Hillsborough County. A @FloridaGOP doorknocking event set for Sat., Aug. 1 in Tampa is dangerous and irresponsible. The fact that @JoeGruters is participating in this speaks volumes about the GOP’s lack of concern for safety. Image
3) With 28,742 cases as of today, Hillsborough County has the fourth highest number of cases of all counties in #Florida. To endanger #Tampa residents by campaigning door-to-door shows flagrant disregard for human lives by @FloridaGOP. ImageImage

TW: rape and racism/antiblackness
This is my story of how Tong Lee, owner of The Chewy Boba Co. USF, continuously verbally assaulted me back in 2013 - a thread.
I saw Mel Gibson was trending and a tweet triggered tf out of me.
Tong Lee from The Chewy Boba Company USF in Tampa, Florida was violently verbally abusive to me. He once got angry because I was late coming out of work and he was supposed to drive me home. (1)
On the car ride home, he told me next time I was late, he would make me walk home and that he hoped I would "get gangraped by a group of black dudes." He also yelled at me for making one of *his* guests a sandwich because the kid said he was hungry and I was just that kind of (2)
