8/7 Inventory Update

One of my readers and horsey friends sent me this link to their Craigslist ad. They are looking for a roommate to inhabit the master suite on a nicely positioned 5 acre ranch property in Santa Ynez. Click here.  Looks pretty cool to me.

New Listing


1552 Mountain View, Solvang (3/2 on .22 of an acre) 525K Only a few pics on the mls at this time but I hear the property is really cute with vintage tile and other nostalgic touches. These older Solvang bungalows are very popular and usually come with the bonus of a large lot which this one certainly does. As you can see from the aerial above, this is an interior lot. House next door has a pool. Tons of curb appeal and a nice looking workshop in the back give this property an extra boost in value.  

Price Reduction


504 Myrtle, Solvang (4/3 on .52 of an acre) Was 795K with a new price of 695K after only 14 days. Now that’s what I call a price reduction. Actually there were several other price reductions on the mls today but they were so small, it isn't worth noting here really. Reduce it like you mean it if buyers are supposed to take notice. Now a 100K drop, that's worth talking about! You can see from the aerial above this is a on the perimeter of the original phase of Skytt Mesa so it overlooks highway 246, Nielsen's Building Materials and the rock plant and then on to the really pretty foothills and river beyond. I have noted at this location that traffic noise isn't as noticeable as you might think. A few water features in the yard and you might not even notice it. These are well built homes, inside its extremely quiet. As the narrative states, this is a short sale.  

In Escrow

494 Heritage, Los Alamos (3/2 on .25 of an acre) 469K This is a listing in my own inventory and one of the nicest homes in this pride of ownership development. My seller needs to find a replacement property pronto. Looking for at least 1 acre (more would be nice) with a house under 750K. Could be in the valley, Los Alamos, the Lompoc corridor or somewhere in between Los Alamos and Santa Maria. We are open to suggestions but it has to be quick! Call me direct if you or someone you know has a property that might fit.  

In Escrow

3667 Tivola, Santa Ynez (3/2 on .23 of an acre) 375K Fallen out  of escrow 3 times so this is the 4th time. On the market 78 days with an original price of 425K. This is the rare bank owned property. We just aren't seeing many of these lately.  

945 College Canyon, Solvang (3/3 on 1 acre) Listed at 575K and sold final for 550K. Why didn't you see this one? It came on the market as already in escrow. Nobody saw it.
