October home sales in Ventura County dropped 16% from the previous month, indicating a seasonal slowdown and the cooling of a housing market that has soared for much of 1994, according to a report released Friday. Whether the 13-month real estate recovery is actually losing steam is unclear, analysts said, adding that sales historically dip with the beginning of the school year and with the distraction of the holidays just over the horizon.

Home prices reached a record high in September in Ventura County as sales dipped slightly, but analysts said the action was little more than a ripple in a market that has seen steady growth. Countywide, average median sales prices rose 9.8% from the same period last year--from $224,000 to $246,000, according to a report released Wednesday. That is $2,000 higher than the record median home price posted in the county in June.

Despite rapid growth, Walnut, on the eastern limits of the San Gabriel Valley, retains plenty of open space. Citrus and black walnut groves once dominated the rolling hills and valleys, but a blight in the 1930s wiped out most of the town's namesake crop. Two walnut groves managed to survive; one with nearly 100 trees was dedicated as a preservation site in 1986.

Three formerly company-owned Coldwell Banker real estate offices in Ventura County have been sold to a Santa Monica company that will operate them as Coldwell franchises. In a related move, the Coldwell Banker unit in Camarillo has moved into the Lamb Realty office in that city and Lamb, a fixture in Camarillo real estate since the 1970s, has shut down its Camarillo operation. The countywide realignment affects about 100 real estate agents in Ventura, Camarillo and Simi Valley.

If you think everyday life is filled with paperwork, wait until you try to buy or sell a home. The now-basic eight-page real estate purchase contract is only the beginning. There are lengthy statements disclosing any problems with the property being sold, pest control reports, and information about earthquakes and environmental hazards.

After plummeting most of last year, Ventura County home sales rose steadily in the first three months of 1996, with nearly 300 more houses changing hands than during 1995's first quarter. From the first of January through the end of March, 2,002 homes were sold countywide, up 17.4% from the same period in 1995, according to a report released Monday by TRW-Redi Property Data. March sales also showed a 9% jump over sales in February which, in turn, were higher than January's numbers.

This year's upswing in home sales and prices flattened out a bit in September, but real estate agents and analysts remained optimistic about the rebounding market. A report released Wednesday by DataQuick Information Services showed a 1% drop in both sales and prices from September 1995. "It's pretty flat," said John Karevoll, a DataQuick analyst. "But you have to remember we are comparing to relatively strong numbers in September of 1995, especially in Ventura and Orange counties."

After months of listening to the public assail or--rarely--praise the Hidden Creek Ranch project, the City Council is ready to get down to business. With public hearings now closed, the council for the next six weeks will deliberate on whether to certify an environmental report for the largest proposed housing plan in the city's history. It took more than eight years to get to this point, and the council will probably take years more to make a final decision.

Ventura County housing sales shot up 18% from July to August, continuing an 18-month resurgence that has defied a rise in home mortgage rates, according to figures released Monday. "We're at the point where we don't even have enough product anymore," said Kathy White, an agent with Brown-Realtors in Westlake. "All the agents are complaining that there isn't enough out there."

Home sales continued to rise in parts of eastern Ventura County during August in what analysts said is a sign of a healthy real estate market. But with a sharp drop in the sales of new and existing homes, the city of Ventura bucked the trend, and the total numbers of homes sold countywide last month fell short of that reached in the peak month of August 1995, according to figures released Wednesday by DataQuick Information Services.
