Anaheim Ducks Win Stanley Cup!


The Anaheim Ducks had come close in 2003 & 2006.  They took the Devils to a game 7 in the 2003 finals.  They were upset by the Oilers in the 2006 Conference finals.   They made another killer run in 2007 and captured the cup this time over Ottawa.  The Ducks were established in 1993 and won a cup before the hated rival Los Angeles Kings who had been around since 1967 with no cup.

Here is a summary of the latest statistics for the Santa Barbara real estate market for March 2013. Over the last several weeks we have seen a definite increase in inventory, especially in the Goleta area. Much of the new inventory has been in the $600,000 to $900,000 range. Buyers are still very active and almost all the inventory is selling off within days to only a few weeks. Prices in general still are on the climb, although it feels a little more stable just in the last few weeks.

Some of our strongest areas (because of lack of inventory) are the San Roque area, The Mesa area and the entry level in Hope Ranch around the $1.3 to $1.8 million mark. Homes that come up in these areas and that are prices at market are almost always seeing multiple offers.

Honda Center In Anaheim

The Honda Center, previously known as the Arrowhead Pond of Anaheim and colloquially called The Pond or The Ponda, is an indoor arena in Anaheim, California, United States. The arena is home to the National Hockey League’s Anaheim Ducks and was home of the former National Lacrosse League’s Anaheim Storm, which folded in 2005.
Originally named the Anaheim Arena during construction, it was completed in 1993 at a cost of $123 million. Arrowhead Water paid $15 million for the naming rights over 10 years in October 1993. In the short period of time between the enfranchisement of the Mighty Ducks and the naming rights deal with Arrowhead, Disney referred to the Arena as the Pond of Anaheim. Honda, in October 2006 acquired the naming rights for $60 million over 15 years.
