Today we did a large update to the Home Page of The Paris911 and Associates Real Estate Website for the Santa Clarita Valley real estate community. We went into detail with what we write on a daily basis. We positioned all of our Blog access points with explanations and what our “motivation” is by publishing so much content about the Questions our Buyers and Sellers have.
Anyone can answer a real estate question, but to be able to validate their “motivation” with factual data – that is an entirely different story. With hiring an independent research firm that is driven by Real Estate Data – we have stepped up yet again to the requests of our Exclusive Clientele. To gain access to this Data – we have a few pages that we have built rendering the current “median Sales Prices” for the Cities within the Santa Clarita Valley. Another data driven real estate page has to do with the Local Santa Clarita Inventory.
When wanting to purchase real estate – looking at median sales prices and inventory can be an indicator to assist you with your decision. Today, in the Santa Clarita real estate market, we are seeing strong indications of a “supply and demand” issue. This is creating buyer apprehension and seller elation. Make sure you are getting good advice about buying and or selling real estate from someone that is in the game full time. Someone that has a track record of production and client satisfaction.
Here is the most recent “inventory” for the cities that compose the Santa Clarita Valley. We have also placed the listings that have other status changes on this graph as well. If you are curious as to what the different real estate statuses are – click here for a complete list.
Santa Clarita Real Estate and Local News Headlines April 29, 2012, remembering working during the Riots
Remembering working the LA Riots
Those were interesting times, I only had 2 years on the PD, had just wheeled to my “off probation” division – Northeast (NOE), and was a PII dog. PII dog, is police vernacular for being a full fledged police officer and not a “boot”, which is police vernacular for an offer that is “brand new”.
I’ll never forget, we worked four deep to a car and we always responded to events in the South End of Los Angeles in groups of 4 cars. That was a couple of years before I made motors.
I wonder what that “Denny” fella is up to today? If you remember, he was that truck driver that was ripped out of his truck and beaten within an inch of his life. I think I recall, Reginald at some point, apologizing to those criminals that beat him, which angered me (if memory serves)…
Now for some Real Estate news
I have a feeling that we are going to spend some time absorbing the local Santa Clarita Culture. Maybe go to the Valencia Town-Center mall, have a walk around and go to Wokcano and have Sushi.
On second thought, I may try to take my family to the “Kings” in Calabasas.
Either way, with the exception of the my “daily” internet routine and updates, I am going to do my best to take the entire day off… We’ll see…
The following are the latest headlines from the SCV Signal Newspaper, there are some doosies:
Today in the SCV: Sunday, April 29, 2012
Cleaning up after cuts
The ’92 riot: Revisiting a dark day in LA history <— This writer, Connor MacIvor(me), was working North East Division LAPD, I had a couple of years on the job when the riots started. In fact, I was on a day off and called in by our Watch Commander. We went to 12 hour A/B shifts and worked 4 to a police car. I’ll never forget it
Chaperones among new Secret Service conduct rules
Discretion program a mixed bag for immigrants
TMC notebook: Season winds down for two
Prep soccer: Weiner verbals to Fresno St.
Hart’s Riley Stauffer: Beyond the glory
Prep baseball: Cents find their ways
Prep baseball: Not so easy for ’Cats
For the record, we who call the Santa Clarita Valley cities our home, are not “uncultured”.
Photo and Charity Event
Coming to the Westfield mall in the beautiful city of Valencia CA, is a four month Photographic display by Local Santa Clarita Photographer Ted Dayton. The start date of this will be May 16th, 2012.
Besides some of the most beautiful black and white photos being expertly presented and for sale, Ted will donate part of the proceeds to the Single Mothers Outreach (SMO).
Single Mothers Outreach
SMO was founded in 1995 as a resource and to provide support for single mothers struggling through the process of Divorce or Death of a spouse. Single Mothers Outreach provides empowerment for single parents and their children by providing home, support and resources, so that families can gain their footing once again.
So hence the connection between the Single Mothers Outreach and this Photographic presentation.
Bridges, an art form?
During a typical Santa Clarita bike ride, Ted Dayton was traveling under one of our local bridges – one that crosses the Santa Clarita River, it was at that time he was “inspired”. Returning later with his camera loaded with black and white film.
During the next four months, Ted was able to capture a multitude of photos with “bridges” as the primary subject matter.
“I had no idea we had anywhere near 27 traffic bridges in the Santa Clarita Valley”, I’m thinking this as I’m typing
But that is what Ted had photographed in his artistic style.
Not Ted’s First Rodeo
This is not Ted Dayton’s First Rodeo either. He has done projects in the past to benefit other “help and non-profit groups”. We are proud to write about this event and I will make it a point to visit the “Beauty is a Bridge” presentation while it is at the Valencia Westfield Town Center Mall in Valencia CA.
When and Where
“Beauty Is a Bridge” opens May 16 at the east end of the mall, upstairs from the carousel, with an opening reception from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
If you want to go to Ted Dayton’s Website we have placed that link here – Ted Dayton Photography.com. If the Telephone is more your style Ted can be reached at 661-255-2828.
It runs through September 15 and is open during regular mall business hours. Admission is free.
As Ted Says, “Make it beautiful. Make it useful.”
