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.

COMMENTARY 🧵->
#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.”

Results from our survey of #FixAndFlip investors are in. The fix-and-flip market is clearly cracking: higher rates have shrunk the # of buyers + the # feasible deals. Buyers are also cautious about overpaying given falling prices (cutting into flipper margins).

COMMENTARY🧵->
#Atlanta flipper: “Much higher risk environment due to rising rates. Sellers still have not reset expectations from earlier this year, so acquisitions have essentially come to a halt.” (2/19)
#Baltimore flipper: “The market for fix and flip has turned. It is now a buyer's market and there are a lot of investors competing for the same property. I have put in several offers on a few properties that have good potential but have not been able to get the contract.” (3/19)

SPEECHLESS: @mattteamjesus is a Seattle street preacher regularly targeted by people who oppose his Bible reading at public events. I spent hours following him today at #TacomaPride. He had 3 Bibles trashed, 2 signs stolen, and only 1 person standing up for him. This is America.
ALLOWED TO STAY: Police did not interfere w/ @mattteamjesus and other street preachers at #TacomaPride. A Spanish speaking church was also present. Officers were well aware of 1st Amendment rights to express religious beliefs on public property, even with hostile crowd. #Tacoma
BIBLES DESTROYED: I tracked down two of the three Bibles that I saw getting pulverized today. Imagine if someone did this to the Quran, Islam's holy book? #Christianity #America #Tacoma @700club @CTmagazine @newsmax @realDailyWire @ChristianPost @CBNNews @reachjulieroys

Thread, with lots of photos: Commerce Street (between S 21st and 23rd), the heart of #Tacoma's Brewery Blocks, *must* become CAR-FREE. Its potential is incredible!! Without cars, it could quickly become the most exciting, European-feeling corridor in the entire Pacific Northwest!
Here's the Google Street View of the 2100 block of S Commerce St. Would this be a *glorious* car-free block or what? The couple I talked to (previous photo) agreed 100%! They walk their dog all the time, and they can't stand the cars, especially at night, when mischief happens.
The breweries are STUNNING here. And we all know that drinking + driving = disaster. Removing #cars will dramatically increase both safety and urban vibrancy. Imagine the VIEWS from these historic buildings when PEOPLE replace CARS! @CityofTacoma

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.”

#Tacoma must be different. I've absolutely never seen "afraid they would break glass" as justification for the use of deadly force. I have, however, frequently seen "attempted to ram with a car" as justification for *police* killing other people.

Fuck you, @TacomaPD
Here's @seattletimes playing telephone and reinventing a direct quote, “He was afraid they would break his glass,” as the police use-of-force justifying "The officer drove away because *he feared for his safety*, Haddow said." seattletimes.com/seattle-news/t…

FAKE NEWS! She’s not sharing the full-video where mobsters surrounded the officers vehicle and he had to flee to safety. #Tacoma #seattleprotests

Pig was willing to kill all those people to save the car's windows, by their own admission. And they think this is justification.
Not "I feared for my life." Not "I feared for the lives of others." No. I "was afraid they would break the glass."

Absolute ghoul shit.

Today we served 60+ hot meals, bottled water, and socks to folks living/surviving on the streets of downtown Tacoma. Thank you Alma Mater (high compliments to Chef Roger) for providing a delicious menu of chicken and rice with chickpea & cauliflower!
With COVID numbers increasing daily, we are excited for our partnership with @lovebeyondwalls which enabled us to procure two sinks for our #Tacoma community. It is more important than ever that we provide hand washing as a human right to all.
Supplies in high demand are: hand sanitizer (or supplies to create it), socks, bottled water, and masks. If you’d like to donate, please email us at thepeoplesassembly253@gmail.com. This is what community looks like! #ThePeopleGotThePeople

Make noise! Tacoma Public Schools wants to get input on whether or not to keep SROs in our high schools. Don't be fooled by the "no basis to form a response" option - we know policing is inherently violent & anti-Black. It's an affirmative REMOVE ALL COPS! tinyurl.com/removepolicetps
For now, fill out this survey and tell all your folks to do the same! tinyurl.com/removepolicetps

As public spaces + events are shut down due to the #coronavirus - the need for building mutual aid survival programs is now greater than ever, especially in the face of the dramatic failure of the State to respond to this crisis. Here's a thread for inspiration. #MutualAid
Last summer we talked to @simaleerbg of the @fcrcollective who organized a free store and free grocery program in #DC.
In #PuertoRico, for the past several years, people across the island have set up assemblies, squatted buildings, set up mutual aid community centers, and organized to carry out wide scale disaster relief in the face of hurricanes and earthquakes.
