June 2015 Shatters Home Sales Records!

20 Jul 2015
June 2015 Statistics_Page_3
Since March, Placer County has broken all previous Home Sales Records each month, with June completely shattering all previous sales history data! With 671 closed escrows in June 2015, the next closest June data recorded is June 2013 with 565 closed sales and then June 2004 with 546. Along with record setting escrow numbers, June’s median price of $401,000 is up 75% from a 10-year low of $231,250 in March of 2011.

With low inventory levels floating at around two months, is this the right time to sell? Be sure to contact a REALTOR to find out if the time is right for you. Remember, not every real estate agent is a REALTOR. REALTOR, the mark of a Professional.

Update on Status of Open House Signs in Rocklin

17 Jul 2015
The Board of Directors, LGR Chair Rick Bluhm and Government Affairs Director Susan Rohan want to give the membership an update on the status of resolution on the Rocklin sign problem. The matter was discussed at the City Council meeting Tuesday night. Progress is being made. The Council has directed staff to study ways to make the ordinance’s intent more clear. It sounds like there is intent for it to function like Roseville’s Sign Ordinance, but until it is inked, it is a work in progress. LGR and your GAD will continue to monitor and participate in this effort.

The large number of true sign violations is complicating resolution for all parties attempting to find the right solution. The heavy reliance on placement of duplicative marketing signs at intersections and along major roadways is compounding the challenge of ensuring the Sign Ordinance will allow temporary offsite directional signs. Also, it is critical for the membership to not place signs in the public rights of way—that means on the streets or on the sidewalks. Place signs on private property only after you have the consent of the private property owner. And do not place signs closer than 30 ft from an intersection. These parts of the law will not change. Compliance with these rules will keep you out of harms way nearly everywhere you do business. Please feel free to contact Susan at 916-412-4796. Members are also welcome to attend the next LGR meeting at 2:30 PM on July 21st at PCAOR where this item and next steps will be discussed.

Update on Rocklin Sign Ordinance Town Hall Meeting

29 Jun 2015
The Local Government Relations committee would like to thank all of our members who took the time to come to PCAR last week for the town hall meeting on the Rocklin Sign Ordinance. The committee has taken all of your comments and suggestions from the meeting and has been in contact with the City to come up with a solution that works for all parties involved. We have asked the city to relax enforcement until we can reach resolution, but we have not yet received their agreement to do so. In the mean time, the ordinance stands as it is written. We will update you to any new news immediately. If you have further questions contact Susan at susanrohan@surewest.net

Code Enforcement — Open House Signage

19 Jun 2015
We alerted you in May that we had received notices from some of the local jurisdictions of their intent to kick-up their enforcement of their sign ordinance. We have heard from a handful of you that Rocklin, in particular, has ramped up enforcement of their sign ordinance and began confiscating open house signs that are placed in violation of Rocklin’s ordinance. We have provided links below to each of the local jurisdiction’s sign ordinances. The Sign Ordinances are different in each jurisdiction, so please be sure to check the areas where you may be planning an open house. Please also feel free to check with our GAD Susan Rohan at susanrohan@gmail.com if you have specific questions.
