Active Listings Top 7,000 for First Time in Two Years, According to Greater San Diego Association of REALTORS(R)

Median Price Reaches $500,000 for First Time Since 2007

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/09/14 -- Housing prices and inventory increased in May while sales of previously owned homes in San Diego County retreated, according to new housing statistics from the Greater San Diego Association of REALTORS® (SDAR).

The number of active listings in San Diego County on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) surpassed 7,000 for the first time in two years, but homes are being snapped up fast than ever. Resale homes are only spending an average of 40 days on the market before close of escrow.

The median price of single-family resale homes reached the $500,000 mark in May, an increase of nearly 2 percent from April and a new high; the last time the median price was $500,000 was in November 2007. Condo and townhome prices edged up slightly to $335,000. Single-family detached homes saw a drop in sales of 14 percent in May from the previous month, while attached homes (condos and townhomes) fell by 26 percent.

"The market will experience month-to-month variances, but the housing market in San Diego remains strong," said SDAR 2014 President Leslie Kilpatrick. "More homes are on the market and buyers are scooping them up quickly. That's an encouraging sign."

In June, the zip codes in San Diego County with the most single-family home sales were: 92057 (Oceanside) with 56; 92027 (Escondido) with 52; 92130 (Carmel Valley) with 49; 92028 (Fallbrook) with 48; and 92009 (Carlsbad) with 48.

The most expensive San Diego County listing sold last month: A 6-bedroom, 7-bath, 7,228-square-foot home in Coronado that sold for $10.5 million.

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...
Gartner predicts that the bulk of new IT spending by 2016 will be for cloud platforms and applications and that nearly half of large enterprises will have cloud deployments by the end of 2017.

While traditional SAN-based clusters are not possible in these environments, SANless cluste...
