8/23 Inventory Update

The weekend is upon us. I hope you have something fun planned. I'll be here working but to me, that’s actually fun. If you need me, I'm around so don't hesitate to reach out if you need me. Back on Monday with all the news. 

Before we get down to business today, here are your week ending rates from Guy Rivera at Guarantee Mortgage. Click here. 

Price Reduction

440 Sycamore, Buellton (5/3 on .17 of an acre) Was 749K with a new price of 719K. One of the big ones and in better than new condition. 

In Escrow

233 St. Joseph, Los Alamos (3/3 on .23 of an acre) 425K Having been rented as residential, highest and best use here is commercial, as it is zoned, in this fast growing town. On the market only a few days before it started receiving offers. Not right on the main drag but about half a block off. Charming as only the 1800's era could deliver.   


9160 Highway 101, Los Alamos (3/3 on 3 acres) Listed at 595K and sold final for 560K. Went in multiple offer after being on the market since 2010. Go figure. Anything is possible in Los Alamos these days.  


2146 N. Refugio, Santa Ynez (main house plus bunkhouse on 3.5 acres) Listed at $1,095,000 and sold final for 922K. This is a listing in my own inventory selling to my very own clients. You know how sometimes things just click? Well, that happened. As is always the case, the right people bought the right property. This is a property that takes some vision and at the same time, appreciation for what it already is. There is value in history and good bones and there are people who innately understand this. These buyers are those kind of people. This house is like coming home to your favorite slippers, a comfortable saddle or your favorite dog waiting for you on the front steps. All these things say "I'm home and all is well". That’s what this house represents. I'm home and all is well.  And old timer who has lots of love and happiness left to give. I couldn't be happier that the stewardship of this home that has made so many people happy is left in the hands of those who will treat it well, love it and make their own memories here. Congrats to my patient and so diligent buyers. You did it! Thank you to my sellers who trusted me and never gave up.
