Our Future! Concrete Canyons??
Comment by Steven S. Kane on March 25, 2011 at 6:02pm
Too many roads, too many cars.  The people have to compete with the cars to move around.  The Grove is a center in West Hollywood that works really well because the central area is almost like a park.  It is designed to be used by people.  It actually has grass, trees and water rather than glass and concrete.  This looks like a 1950s concept where the auto is king and the people had better just get out of the way.  Please do not build it!  However, I am sure that our East County 16 year-old pickup truck jockeys would love it.

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.
