8/19 Inventory Update

I'm getting to be a regular Craigslist …. call it Sharonslist. Now seriously, who doesn't need a good truck to beat up on the ranch? Drive to the dump? Or one to give to your kids (to beat up) or the gardener or ranch hand to trip around in? 1996 Chevy 2 wheel drive with less than 100K original miles. Used gently on a Santa Barbara ranch which accounts for the low mileage. No accidents. Body and paint in good shape. Nice tool box in the back. Front and back seat. It’s a good one at $3900 and I’m pretty sure the owner is negotiable. Here is a pic. If you like it, call Price at 805.448.2733 (heck of a nice guy - oh, and he's my son :).




New Listing


2948 Alta, Los Olivos (3/3 on .75 of an acre) 965K Seems like everybody wants Los Olivos. Here is one within easy distance to town center and the elementary school. You can see by the aerial pic that its location is very close to the highway but as we saw with nearby 2984 San Marcos, proximity to the highway is not necessarily a barrier to sale if the property is special enough. This one in pics looks nicer than the average home near town so perhaps someone will carry a torch for it too.  2984 San Marcos certainly had no shortage of suitors. The lot is larger than most in town LO homes at three quarters of an acre. This home will be open on broker tour tomorrow so I'll now more then.  

Back on the Market (with a price reduction)


2175 Holly, Solvang (3/2 on .27 of an acre) Well, poo. This is a nice house as you have likely seen me say before. Beautiful condition and I thought the price was good too. If you missed it the first time around you'll be happy to know it came down from 639K and is now 625K. Not a huge reduction but a signal from the sellers they want to sell. In turn key shape with a lovely back yard. Super nice highly desirable area. Check it out, it’s a good one.   

In Escrow

272 Riverview, Buellton (5/3 on .16 of an acre) 450K That was a no brainer in this highly desirable river side pride of ownership neighborhood. This is the big model and the best in my opinion. As the narrative states, this is a fixer which is why the price is slightly depressed. We have seen high 4's to low or mid 5's in here lately.  

In Escrow


504 Myrtle, Solvang (4/3 on .52 of an acre) 696K This is a short sale in the original phase 1 of Skytt Mesa.  

In Escrow

3354 Pine, Santa Ynez (3/3 on .21 of an acre) 527K Across from the elementary school.

In Escrow

606 Aqueduct, Solvang (3/3 on .32 of an acre) 669K One of the nicer floor plans in this semi upscale gated development. Doesn't have the big views some others have but it does come with an open floor plan, a very spacious feel and privacy. A trendier plan than many in Mission Oaks. What good is a back yard if everyone else can watch you enjoy it? This one is nicely secluded and far enough down on the hill that you can easily stroll into one of the many nearby shops.  

In Escrow

1339 Cheyenne, Santa Ynez (3/3 on .25 of an acre) 699K I reported on this one last week. A very nice home with a fun floor plan, good neighborhood. Don't forget about nearby 3395 Sagunto priced a little lower at 675K which has a floor plan I absolutely love and tons of natural light.  

In Escrow

754 Mesa Vista, Solvang (3/3 on 5 acres) 980K Nothing will spur interest faster than an almost 300K price reduction which happened just last week.  

In Escrow

7910 Cat Canyon, Los Alamos (100 acres, land only) $2,750,000 Known as Verna's Vineyard, already in vineyard with high ratings and impressive production for 2012. One visionary passing on a real beauty to another visionary. Los Alamos is the place to be right now, that’s for sure.
