According to, July sales in California were up more than 12% from June and also up more than 12% from one year ago.  Increased foreclosure resales account for the increase. Here are some statistics for our local area.

In Seal Beach the median sales price was $842K, down 1.5% from one year ago. The average per square foot was $316, unusually low.

For comparison purposes, in the Belmont Shore (we used zip code 90803) the median sales price was $707K, down over 40% from one year ago. The average per square foot was $592.

The 2008 Seal Beach summer concert series ended with a surfing concert by the Eliminators.  A ocean front community and the Beach Boys (and the Ventures, Dick Dale, and other surf guitars) are just made for each other.  It was a fun concert. 

The Eliminators are a great concert group.  They have fun and that just eminates through their guitars and drums.  Even Miss Teen Seal Beach enjoyed herself a few feet from the performers dancing with a group of her friends.

Thanks to the Chamber of Commerce and other sponsors for putting the 2008 concert series together.  2009 cannot come quickly enough.

For fans of the Eliminators, we overheard one of them mention to a concertgoer that they are going to be appear at the Bella Terra mall in Huntington Beach during the Labor Day weekend.
