jeffrey fontana park: National Isn't Local! Almaden Valley; A Case in Point - 08/29/10 06:51 AM

Our local newspaper, like so many others tends to cite national numbers when reporting on the housing market. We all know that each of our local housing markets is much different. As the old saying goes,"You've gotta know the territory!".
A few comparisons for the month of July; Almaden Valley had 38 closed sales in 2009 and 26 in 2010. That's a 32% decline, but let's look further. Once again the pended sales tell us more of the true story. In those same months, 2009 had 34 pended sales while 2010 had 34! That's no increase over last July's number, … (0 comments)

jeffrey fontana park: Almaden's Efforts to Save the Trees - 05/23/10 07:54 PM
I attended the rally yesterday with about 60 other concerned residents. It was not surprising that there were not as many people this time around, as PG&E, and the city have done a lot to downplay and stall theurgency of this event. There are many discrepencies in their reports vs. those of concerned residents,engineers, the Audobon Society, Sierra Club an more, who all had representatives at the rally.

Beware; Prop 16 is a wolf in sheep's clothing. This will give them more carte blanche to many issues like these. Ask yourself; why would they fund this proposition?An interesting link.
