San Diego Home Sales Fall 25% October 2009 through October 2010
The October San Diego Housing Market report indicates that while the median sales prices for resales have increased slightly, the number of sales last month have dropped and over the last year they have done so rather significantly.
The year over year San Diego Median Home Prices changes from October 2009 through October 2010 suggest that there have been increases across the board in Single Family and Condominium resale prices and especially in new homes sale prices. The median prices increased 2.5% ( $369,000) for Single family homes, up 2.38% ( $215,000) for condominiums and a whopping 21.12 % ($486,000) for new homes. These combined gave the county a 2.92% ( $334,500) boost to the median price of all combined types of sales. Read the rest of this entry »

Rumors fly this time of year especially when it comes to Apple products and the iPad in particular. We can’t know for sure who starts those but I read an article by Bloomberg News this morning and it seems that the specific items mentioned would make a lot of sense.
The article referenced an important San Diego company that makes chips that will allow for different types of connections ( both GSM and CDMA). These are the two dominant radio standards for cell phones and smart phones out there. Having chips that would accommodate both types of networks makes sense to me and seems very logical and likely in the new version iPad 2.
The article suggests that Apple will introduce the new version in the first quarter of 2011, several new features that will appeal to the iPad user, including making it thinner. The new chips and several other features like a camera for video calling. I know that I would like to have an iPad now that our MLS and our Standard Forms are accessible from the iPad. I fully expect that many real estate professionals will gravitate to this neat piece of hardware. Currently the iPad still needs a reliable printer app that prints correctly but sending the Contracts to the clients e-mail allows then to print it just fine. When we sync the iPad to our computer, we can also print the contracts or MLS from our Mac or PC. A good work around for the time being. This printing issue will get solved and maybe in this new version?
When I was at ActiveRain Raincamp in San Diego, I was sitting next to a person that was typing away on his iPad during the presentation. As I recall he had a mobile keyboard as part of the case that housed the iPad. Pretty cool. I really liked the idea of being able to take notes on a small profile computer that is easy to hold in your lap and the iPad has so many other cool applications. Read the rest of this entry »
