SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/10/14 -- Although home sales saw a seasonal drop in January, prices remained stable and much higher than a year ago, according to the regional housing statistics from the Greater San Diego Association of REALTORS® (SDAR).
Sales of existing homes in San Diego County dropped in January compared to December, a seasonal, after-the-holidays slump. Single-family homes saw a month-over-month drop of 22 percent, and were 21 percent lower than a year ago. Condos and townhomes also saw a drop of 16 percent from December, but the number of sales was comparable to a year ago.
The median price of previously owned single-family homes in San Diego County was $475,000 last month -- virtually unchanged from December, but 22 percent higher than a year ago. The median price of condos and townhomes sold in January 2014 increased by about 2 percent over the previous month, and is up more than 24 percent from a year ago.
"We are still waiting for inventory to pick up," said 2014 SDAR President Leslie Kilpatrick. "Sales have been slow, but I expect more sellers to jump into the market as we approach the spring buying season. My mantra has always been: 'The best time to buy is when you can.'"
In January, the zip codes with the most sales of single-family homes included: 92028/Fallbrook - 42; 91911/Chula Vista - 32; 92071/Santee - 31; 92114/Encanto - 29; and 92130/Carmel Valley - 29.
The most expensive San Diego County listing sold last month: A 4-bedroom, 5-bath, 4,500-square-foot home in La Jolla that sold for $7.8 million.

Amazon and Google have built software-defined data centers (SDDCs) that deliver massively scalable services with great efficiency. Yet, building SDDCs has proven to be a near impossibility for ‘normal’ companies without hyper-scale resources. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, David Cauthron, founder and chief executive officer of Nimboxx, will discuss the evolution of virtualization (hardware, application, memory, storage) and how commodity / open source hyper converged infrastructure (HCI) so...

Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, will discuss how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the ...

The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as...

Even though you are running an agile development process, that doesn’t necessarily mean that your performance testing is being conducted in a truly agile way. Saving performance testing for a “final sprint” before release still treats it like a waterfall development step, with all the cost and risk that comes with that. In this post, we will show you how to make load testing happen early and often by putting SLAs on the agile task board.
