Starting To Look Like Summer

LA MESA -- It is starting to feel a lot like summer -- despite the June gloom and cool temperatures.

This weekend offers a couple events that feel like things we do in summer in the Jewel of the Hills.

On Saturday, the La Mesa Historical Society will be conducting a Vintage Yard Sale. Comprised of antique gifts to the society and items that are duplicates or don't fit the group's historical mission, this event will allow you to indulge your yard sale desires and feel like you are doing your civic duty as well. CLICK HERE for the details.

And on Sunday evening, one of the most pleasant rites of summer begins with the first Sundays At Six Concerts at Harry Griffen Park. The Flag Day Parade had the Marine Band, and this first Sundays At Six event will give equal time to the jazz ensemble from  The Navy Band. Like the Marine Band musicians, these men and women have their skills honed and offer an amazing performance.  And these concerts are free. Bring a chair and a blanket and enjoy a pleasant, family-friendly way to end a summer weekend. CLICK HERE for the details.

LOOKING AHEAD: The Back to the '50s Car Show is set to begin this coming Thursday in the Village. The weekly meeting of the car-obsessed is an interesting stroll every week.

California housing market bounces back in February after slow start to year

Source: C.A.R.

Slowing home price appreciation and improving inventory combined to boost California’s housing market in February as existing home sales and median home prices increased from both the previous month and year, according to the CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® (C.A.R.). Making sense of the story:

 Closed escrow sales of existing, single-family detached homes in California totaled a seasonally adjusted annualized rate of 368,160 units in February, according to information collected by C.A.R. from more than 90 local REALTOR® associations and MLSs statewide.

 Sales in February were up 4.7 percent from a revised 351,480 in January and up 2.4 percent from a revised 359,600 in February 2014. The year-over-year increase was the largest observed since December 2012.

 “While February’s statewide improvement in the housing market was moderate, it’s an encouraging sign, nevertheless, as we head into the spring home-buying season,” said C.A.R. President Chris Kutzkey. “On the supply side, housing inventory improved overall with active listings growing at a faster pace of 5.3 percent when compared to last February.”

 The median price of an existing, single-family detached California home was essentially flat from January’s median price, inching up from $426,660 in January to $428,970 in February. February’s median price was 5.5 percent higher than the revised $406,460 recorded in February 2014.

 While the statewide median home price is higher than a year ago, the rate of increase has narrowed significantly since early 2014. The median sales price is the point at which half of homes sold for more and half sold for less; it is influenced by the types of homes selling as well as a general change in values.

 The available supply of existing, single-family detached homes for sale statewide in February was unchanged from the 5 months reported in January. The index was 4.7 months in February 2014. The index indicates the number of months needed to sell the supply of homes on the market at the current sales rate.

 The median number of days it took to sell a single-family home shortened in February, down from a 52.4 days in January to 47 days in February but up from 40.1 days in February 2014.
