Have you ever been stuck in a place; have all the tools needed but just can't seem to get out, so it seems as if you are trapped? I want to tell you today that God can still use your prison to show his power. Come here, lets talk about Paul and Silas for a moment. If Paul and Silas could talk, they would tell you that your prison time is never God's off time. But the type of power you give to it will determine how you get through it. Ultimately, when it is all said and done it is the power of God that is able to tear down the walls and loosen every band.

Real estate buyers in the Santa Clarita Valley markets have been dismayed as of late because of the less than adequate inventory. It's causing them to slow down their approach and viewing of real estate, simply because there are not very many homes for sale. A few months ago I opined that there would be more units coming on the market for sale in the Santa Clarita Valley cities. And that is starting to come true. Looking back only a couple weeks ago we had 545 to 565 units for sale here in the Santa Clarita Valley City. I am only speaking about active homes. Not those homes and back up position, and not those homes in pending position, which are both categories of escrow. I'm speaking of the homes that are actually 100% active with in the Santa Clarita multiple listIng service. Santa Clarita Valley has a total of 612 active units for sale. 364 homes are in backup position which is Escrow. 278 homes are Santa Clarita Valley has a total of 612 active units for sale. 364 homes are in backup position which is Escrow. 278 homes are intending position which is also escrow.

According to the Financial Post, U.S. economic growth slowed sharply in the fourth quarter as weak business spending and a wider trade deficit offset the fastest pace of consumer spending since 2006.
The slowdown, which follows two back-to-back quarters of very strong growth, is likely to be short-lived given the enormous tailwind from lower gasoline prices. Most economists believe fundamentals in the United States are strong enough to cushion the blow on growth from weakening overseas economies.
Even with the moderation in the fourth quarter, growth remained above the 2.5% pace, which is considered to be the economy’s potential. Economists had expected the economy to expand at a 3% rate in the fourth quarter
