Sixteen of them were being housed in intensive care units.According to city data, more than 24,300 Pasadenans had received their first doses of COVID-19 vaccine, while more than 7,300 had received both doses.Overall, Los Angeles County’s COVID-19 situation continues to improve, with average daily case numbers down 85% from early January, average hospitalizations down 61%, and average daily deaths down 91%.“The decreases that we see are meaningful and they’re all good news, but the numbers still remain higher than the numbers we saw back in autumn,” L.A. County Director of Public Health Barbara Ferrer said. “These numbers continuing to decrease is not a given. This will only continue if we’re all in the game and we’re all continuing to use the tools we have at hand.”The county reported another 162 COVID-19 deaths on Wednesday, raising the overall death toll in the county to 19,368.Another 2,394 cases were confirmed, lifting the cumulative total from throughout the pandemic to 1,171,664.At the state level, public health officials reported 4,090 new infections and 400 additional deaths on Wednesday, raising the statewide totals to 3,416,147 cases of COVID-19 and 47,507 related fatalities.The state’s average positivity rate over the prior week declined to 3.3%, and the 14-day average reached the lowest rate recorded since nov. 12 at 4.1%, according to California Department of Public Health data.As of Wednesday, L.A.

How to snag a bargain before the year ends

first_imgRay White New Farm auctioneer Haesley Cush in action. Saturday June 30, 2018. (AAP image, John Gass)The last week of the year is always a big time in the real estate industry. It’s not big in terms of the number of transactions, the number of opens or even the number of auctions.It’s big because everyone who hasn’t bought or sold, and wants to, gets their last minute “shopping” done. The years residual buyers and sellers can be very keen to get a contract wrapped up and under the tree before Christmas. Auctioneer Haesley Cush I recall many Christmas Eves being spent driving between buyers and sellers, getting their last initials on contracts, and then seeing their elation at the closing of the deal before heading in to the end of year break.That added incentive usually means opportunity. More from newsParks and wildlife the new lust-haves post coronavirus15 hours agoNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market15 hours agoIf you’re the person chasing the sale, you will likely move a little more due to your willingness to close the deal.I have watched many owners benefit from a determined buyer and, likewise, I have witnessed buyers get a “Christmas bargain” because they were able to present a clean contract to a seller who was equally keen to close out a stress-free sale. Generic Sold Home/For Sale Sign. ThinkstockMy advice to those people in the market is to be clear on your position. In every deal there are two separate lines of negotiation — one is the price and the other are the terms. If the timing is important then move on your price but if it’s not, don’t be bullied by the Christmas deadline and hold your line on price.All parties need to review the market conditions, their financial position and consider the alternatives if a sale is not made. This should be the driving force. Christmas is just a date on the calendar and it will be replaced by New Years, and New Years will be replaced by Australia Day. From there it’s Valentine’s Day, International Women’s Day and then Easter. There’s always something around the corner and having a plan and a clear position will ensure you walk away from a sale with a smile on your face.
