Many people waited in line to give blood yesterday only to be turned away.Late in the day on Sunday OneBlood asked blood donors to stop coming and schedule appointments over the next few days.“I’ve been here 13 years and never seen a response like this,” said Pat Michaels, a spokesman for OneBlood, as he revealed the blood centers were at capacity with walk-up donors. The sentiment is understood and appreciated, but it’s a little too much, too soon. But the supply will need to be replenished.”Use this link to make an appointment at the Apopka OneBlood Donor Center.Use this link to find another OneBlood Donor location.

Adding that, “sales activity likely would have been somewhat stronger if not for the fact that parts of Texas and South Florida – hit by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma – saw temporary, but notable declines.”The report notes that the median existing-home price for all housing types in September was $245,100—representing a 4.2 percent increase from last year at $235,200. In addition, this price increase for September marks the 67th straight month of year-over-year gains, according to NAR.At the end of September, totally housing inventory increased 1.6 percent to 1.90 million existing homes available for sale, “but still remains 6.4 percent lower than a year ago at 2.03 million, and has fallen year-over-year for 28 consecutive months.”Meanwhile, the report notes that sold inventory is at a 4.2-month supply at the current sales pace—a decline from 4.5 months a year ago.“A continuation of last month’s alleviating price growth, which was the slowest since last December, 4.5 percent, would improve affordability conditions and be good news for the would-be buyers who have been held back by higher prices this year,” said Yun.To view the full report, click here.
