With an estimated population of 37,786 according to 2016 Census numbers, the capital of The First State saw local home prices increase 2.11 percent month-over-month last November, well above the national average of 0.27 percent. It was also significantly higher than the metro with the next-highest month-over-month appreciation—San Jose, California, at 1.52 percent. On the other end of the spectrum, Canton, Ohio, saw the largest drop of any U.S. metro, falling 2.24 percent month over month.All of that is according to the latest Home Price Index Report, released today by the Data and Analytics division of Black Knight, Inc. The report spotlights the state of home prices as they were in November 2017, which continued a 67-month consecutive streak of annual home price appreciation. U.S. home prices gained 6.44 percent year-over-year, as of November. On a state level, New York was top of the heap for month-over-month gains, with home prices increasing 1.36 percent between October and November. November marked the fifth month in a row that New York led in state-level monthly appreciation.Las Vegas continued to see gains in home prices, but home prices there still sit well below their 2006 peak. As of November, Vegas has gained nearly 13 percent year-over year—up an astonishing 93 percent over its low point—but still lags 25 percent behind that 2006 high point.Of the nation’s 40 largest metros, 12 hit new highs:Boston, MA ($468,000)Charlotte, NC ($230,000)Dallas, TX ($264,000)Denver, CO ($396,000)Kansas City, MO ($198,000)Los Angeles, CA ($665,000)Nashville, TN ($269,000) New York, NY ($476,000)San Diego, CA ($586,000)San Francisco, CA ($861,000)San Jose, CA ($1,073,000)Seattle, WA ($476,000)It isn’t good news across the board, however. While 11 of the nation’s 20 largest states hit new peaks, home prices fell in six of them. Wisconsin saw the largest drop, decreasing 0.37 percent, followed by Ohio (-0.31 percent), North Dakota (-0.26 percent), and Connecticut (-0.22 percent).You can read the full Black Knight report by clicking here.

Antwaun Stanley Gets Stoked On Returning To Fool’s Paradise As An Artist-At-Large

first_imgL4LM: How was it being a special guest with Vulfpeck for their first-ever festival gig?AS: I was very honored to accompany the crew because not only was it their first-ever big festival gig (as Vulfpeck), it was a first for me as well! I didn’t quite know what to expect, but one thing I knew for sure was that I’d be surrounded by some of my closest friends, doing what we love to do. One of the great pleasures of the Vulf-world (including the other frequent collaborators, etc) is that the off-stage experience is just as awesome as the onstage experience. We’ve all known each other for a very long time, so no matter where I join them, it’s alway bound to be a good time…so that, paired with warm weather, good food, positive vibes, what more could you ask for?? Just play it cool…it’s what you gotta do.L4LM: You are the only artist to return to Fool’s Paradise (besides Lettuce), except this time you’ll be there as an artist-at-large, performing with many of the bands on this year’s stacked lineup. We’re super psyched for that! What are your thoughts? AS: I’m stoked to be back this year, especially as an artist-at-large, alongside the legendary Oteil Burbridge! The lineup is phenomenal and I look forward to some very sweet jams! A lot has happened since last year’s festival and I feel there are some caged ducks looking to be set free and funkified…that’s what we’re going to do! It’ll be special.L4LM: Are there any dreams you’re after, or bucket list experiences you’d like to get out of this year’s event? AS: Honestly, my goal is to grow as a musician and to have fun! These are two of the main reasons I’m excited to participate this year. My collabs with others, especially Vulfpeck, have really strengthened me as a musician. As much as you sing/play with others, you also learn to listen and support more, which creates an even better musical atmosphere. So I’m looking forward to some fun and fulfilling jam hangsL4LM: If you had the time to explore a little bit of St. Augustine last year, what was your favorite part of the city?AS: I actually didn’t get to explore as much as I wanted to last year, unfortunately. I’m hoping to dive more into St. Augustine’s rich history this time around. I’ll be begging folks to show me around ?L4LM: You’ll be playing mini-golf with Jesus Coomes (Lettuce) and Lyle Divinsky (The Motet), along with a lot of your fans! How good is your putt-putt game? AS: I haven’t gone out for putt-putt in a while, so my game may be a little shot-shot. Whatever the case, I’m always up for a challenge, JESUS AND LYLE!! I’m super psyched to be with the fans…maybe they’ll offer up some tips in exchange for a riff! Fool’s Paradise is just around the corner! We’re gearing up for a weekend with Lettuce x2, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead (with Jeff Chimenti), The Floozies, The Motet, Manic Science (a special set with Manic Focus & Break Science) The Main Squeeze, Organ Freeman, and Oteil Burbridge & Antwaun Stanley as artists-at-large. On March 31 & April 1, the St. Augustine Amphitheatre will transform into a funk-fueled dance party – with so many surprises in store!We’re especially excited to welcome back Antwaun Stanley, who flew in as a surprise special guest for Vulfpeck at last year’s inaugural event. In addition to Lettuce, he’s the only returning artist for this year’s fresh new lineup. He won’t just be sitting in with the bands, but the Funky Duck himself will also be leading a round of mini-golf with Lettuce’s Jesus Coomes and The Motet’s Lyle Divinsky [sign up here!].With so much to come, Live For Live Music caught up with Antwaun to discuss all things Fool’s Paradise. Read below for his reactions to the exciting events to come!Live For Live Music: Tell us about your experience at the inaugural Fool’s Paradise!Antwaun Stanley: Singing at Fool’s Paradise last year was nothing short of amazing! Having the chance to meet and jam with some of the best players in the game left me speechless. One of the highlights was when Cory Henry jumped on stage and let loose on “Wait For the Moment” on the first night, then joined in the next day to jam on “I Wish.” So many incredible musicians and music lovers filled the yard and I was just lucky to bear witness, let alone be a performer.last_img read more
