A word about open houses. I frequently get asked if a particular property is going to have an open house. Then sometimes at open houses I hear "I have been waiting for this property to be open". I'm guessing some people prefer the anonymity and/or lack of pressure to like or dislike a property which open houses provide. At an open house, you can breeze in and breeze out if you hate it. Or you can decide maybe its got some possibilities and ask some questions and go from there. However, there are a lot of properties that never get held open. Lots of them. So if you sit around and wait for an open house, you can and will get shut out of many suitable choices simply because no open houses were scheduled and/or never were going to be anyway. If you have an agent, call them up and have them show the property to you privately which is much better all the way around. Do not worry about "bothering them". It's their job to show properties you are interested in. If you don't have an agent, call the listing agent directly. Ditto .... don't worry about bothering them ... its their job. Showing property, educating clients, exploring the facts and merits, discussing pricing and comps .... all parts of a real estate agent job and central to how we earn a living. Don't worry about "bothering" us. Showing property is fun to those of us who really love what we do. So call an agent. Don't wait for an open house or you might miss the good ones or never see those whose owners prefer not to have them.

551 Ballard Canyon Rd., Buellton (3/2 on 4.52 acres) $2,000,000 This parcel shares a lot line with the Homes at Ballard Canyon subdivision. Value in the land and zoning even though there is a home and out buildings on this parcel. Mostly if not all flat and usable zoned RS-6 which means the potential for putting multiple homes on this site with a minimum of 6500 square foot lots is very high. Potential developers take note and of course, research the zoning and development opportunities prior to finalizing a purchase.
