Dynamics of the Market

Recently, Orange County and the property market in Southern California have shown unusual tendencies. A scarcity of available properties caused a recent decline in overall sales for 2023, which in turn caused property values to rise. Consistent demand was the cause of this increase, especially from people moving to Orange County from nearby regions like Los Angeles, San Francisco, and San Diego counties.

There are fewer homes for sale in Orange County at the beginning of the new year than there were at the beginning of the previous one. Nonetheless, an increase in overall sales is forecast for this year, which is linked to the increase in inventories and the anticipated decline in loan rates. An increase in newly listed properties indicates that this prediction is already gathering steam.

What I mean by that is do no insane varieties like dazzling yellow, orange, or pink. Except if that is what different homes on the road resemble.

Homeward Bound Newsletter - September 2022 | Bob Cowan

In case you are not sure of the title… it's Labor Day. The Backwards Holiday. Every year when it rolls around, I wonder why it is named Labor Day. Since it’s a Holiday intended to be just that, a Holiday – I would think a better name may be Relax Day or Lazy Day or Off Day or Sleep in Day, maybe even Do-Nothing Day, something other than Labor Day.  After all, we know what Labor means.  And many will likely be celebrating Labor Day by Laboring.   
Labor Day came about because workers felt they were spending too many hours and days on the job.
In the 1830s, manufacturing workers were putting in 70-hour weeks on average. Sixty years later, in 1890, hours of work had dropped, although the average manufacturing worker still toiled in a factory 60 hours a week.  
These long working hours caused many union organizers to focus on winning a shorter eight-hour workday.d ...
