LA to host 2022 Super Bowl because of stadium delays

Don’t print bootleg Super Bowl 2021 t-shirts just yet. Less than a week after the Rams announced their Inglewood stadium will open almost one year later than originally planned, NFL team owners have voted unanimously to give Los Angeles the Super Bowl in 2022—not in 2021, as was initially planned, reports the Los Angeles Times.

The Rams say construction on the stadium—which will be the largest and most expensive in the nation—is delayed due to heavy winter rains.

So, the $2.6-billion venue is now set to open for the 2020 football season, not the 2019 season. Until then, the Rams will continue to play at the Coliseum while the Chargers play the 2019 season at the StubHub Center in Carson.

Pushing LA’s Super Bowl back makes sense, especially considering that having the Rams’ stadium host the Super Bowl in its first year would be an “unprecedented” move, the Times says.

LA County median home price ties an all-time high

Home prices in Los Angeles County climbed up again in April, according to a new report from CoreLogic. The real estate market tracker finds that the median sale price of homes reached $550,000 last month, tying an all-time high set in August of 2007—immediately before the subprime mortgage crisis sent home values into a tailspin.

CoreLogic analyst Andrew LePage says the high prices are probably due to a strong economy and relatively low inventory to supply the demand of buyers looking to take advantage of interest rates that are expected to rise again as soon as next month.

In Orange and San Diego Counties, where median sale prices rose to $675,000 and $525,000, respectively, homes have never been as expensive as they were in April.

With prices as high as they are, it might not be surprising that the total number of sales across Southern California dropped 8.4 percent since March. In LA County, sales were down even more—12.6 percent—from the month before.

But LePage notes that March had three more business days than April, allowing significantly more time for deals to close. Factoring in that discrepancy, sales were just about equal.

Not surprisingly, sales of high-priced homes are continuing to become more common across Southern California. Sales of $800,000 or higher have shot up 7.1 percent since last year, while sales of homes over $1 million ticked up 3.4 percent. Sales below $500,000, on the other hand, dove 11.7 percent in the same time period.

While prices region-wide have reached or are approaching pre-recession levels, a Trulia report released earlier this month noted that homes in many neighborhoods have been slower to reach their 2007 values.

The Best LA Fitness Options For Commitment Avoiders

Four LA guys with tech and marketing backgrounds noticed a couple years ago that along with many other things in LA, fun and trendy fitness experimentation could be made available on demand. Their idea became Open Sweat, an iOS app that lets you book last-minute group workouts at a discount. Unlike competitor ClassPass, you don’t have to buy a package of classes and then use them — you buy as you go.

Open Sweat co-founder Neil Rothstein and his partners don’t come from the fitness industry and aren’t gym rats. And that helped them to think up a service for people who don’t live in the locker room, but still want to make time for exercise. “We definitely saw an opportunity to create a model that we think is more consumer friendly and more friendly to the studios,” Rothstein said.

Here’s how it works: You download the free app to your iPhone or iPad, register on the platform, then use it to browse under-booked classes around town. Last-minute reservations at discounts up to 50% off open up at 6pm the night before and close 30 minutes before class starts. You pay for your class in the app and then just show up to sample some of Open Sweat’s ultra-LA offerings — like aerial performance suspended in giant silk ribbons, a yoga-calisthenics hybrid you can practice out on the bars at Santa Monica beach, or a non-workout in which you sit on a vibrating plate to try to quake off your cellulite (yes, really).

Blu Jam Cafe Coming To Downtown’s Spring Arcade Building

The uber-popular Melrose Avenue brunch spot Blu Jam Cafe is expanding to downtown L.A., with an outpost slated to open at the Spring Arcade Building in the former BierBeisl spot.

“I see the location as an oasis in downtown,” Kamil Majer, owner and founder of Blu Jam Cafe, told LAist. “It’s a beautiful building, and I love the arcade. There’s some other great things there and we really want to be a part of it” as it grows in the next few years.

Blu Jam also has locations in Sherman Oaks, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, and Tokyo, Japan.

Blu Jam’s new downtown shop will be joining Guisados, Garcons de Cafe, Gelateria Uli, and the forthcoming (if long delayed) Clayton’s Public House.

Beyond serving their signature crunchy french toast, the new location will also act as a bakery for the growing Blu Jam empire.

“We make everything in-house,” Majer added. “Ketchups, jams, everything. The only thing I don’t do is bread. So, it’ll take [a few months] but we’ll be making our own bread here. It’ll smell amazing.”

No doubt that the growing residential base of downtown will welcome Blu Jam, as will all those who make the trek from East L.A. and the San Gabriel Valley.

Blu Jam Cafe Downtown will officially open on June 7. Hours will run weekdays 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., and weekends until 4 p.m. The Spring Arcade Building is located at 541 South Spring Street, Los Angeles. (213) 266-8909

Article by Associated Press.  

Economic update for the week ending May 20, 2017

Stocks end the week just slightly down despite volatility – Stocks rose early in the week as oil prices rebounded after OPEC and non OPEC members announced plans to slow production. More disappointing earnings particularly from retailers were released. Political uncertainty was blamed on a steep drop on Thursday, but markets made up most of those losses on Friday. The Dow Jones Industrial Average ended the week at 20,804.84, down from 20,896.71 last week. The S&P 500 closed the week at 2,381.73, down slightly from its close last week of 2,390.90. The NASDAQ closed the week at 6,083.79, down from last week’s close of 6,121.23. 

Treasury Bond yields drop this week – The 10-year Treasury bond closed the week at 2.23%, down from 2.33% last week. The 30-year treasury yield ended the week at 2.90%, down from 2.98% last week. Mortgage rates follow treasury bond yields so we watch bond yields carefully. 

Mortgage Rates down this week – The May 18, 2017 Freddie Mac Primary Mortgage Survey reported that the 30-year fixed mortgage rate average was 4.02%, down from 4.05% last week. The 15-year fixed was 3.27%, down from last week’s 3.29% The 5-year ARM was 3.13%, down slightly from 3.14% last week. Rates dropped late in the week, so next week’s rates should be a little lower. 

The number of existing homes sold in California decline in April – Prices continue to rise – The California Association of Realtors reported that existing home sales statewide declined 2.4% in April from March to a seasonally adjusted rate of 406,300 in April. That was 1.7% below the sales rate last April. The Southern California region had the largest decline. The number of sales were down 6.5% from April 2016. The decline in sales was attributed to a historically low number of homes for sale. Statewide there was a 3.5-month supply of homes for sale in April. That was the lowest April reading since C.A.R. has been tracking their Unsold Inventory Index. New listings taken statewide have declined for 22 straight months, falling 10.5% from last April. Prices continue to move up. The statewide median price was $536,750. It increased 3.7% from March’s median price of $517,490. Year over year the median price increased 5.4% from $509,240 in April 2016. 

Have a great weekend,
