I heard today that a lot of real estate shoppers are leaving the Zillow tractor beam and migrating to Realtor.com (which has upped its game), Trulia, Redfin etc. I'd love to hear about your own personal experiences and why you use one particular real estate search engine over others ..... including those still true to Zillow for their daily real estate fix. 

Interesting .... we hardly ever see apartment building offerings but today there are two. 

New Listing

602 N. Third St., Lompoc (7 units on .16 of an acre) 895K 5 one bedroom/one bath units and 2 two bedroom/two bath units. For the bread and butter investor out there, you'll appreciate the rarity of this kind of offering. Individually metered units, they pay their own gas and power. Owner pays trash and water. I have info on annual income if you want it. 

New Listing

480 Avenue of the Flags, Buellton (21 unit apartment complex) 2,950,000 All units are reported to be studios. Center of the new Buellton downtown master plan. Nina Stormo and I have the vacant lot across the street listed as well for 399K. Control this entire center of town with both purchases. See www.495AveFlags.com for vacant opposite corner info. Ask me to see the proposed Buellton Avenue of the Flags specific plan report. I don't have the annual income info but I can ask for it if interested. 

Price Adjustment

1932 Viborg, Solvang (3/2 on .50 of an acre)  Was 839K with a new price of 819K. Classic  Sunrise floor plan in well over 2100 single level square feet.The magic here is in the location. Backing up to the huge open space between Mission Oaks upscale condos and Sunrise Village, this home has direct views of the deer pathway. If you love deer and cherish fawn season like I do, this is a wonderful location to see wildlife and also experience a big open panorama without having to maintain it. Sunrise Village is close to everything, being centrally located. Solvang school district. 


432 Arden, Buellton (4/2 on .16 of an acre)  Listed at 659K and sold final for 656K. Almost 2200 square feet and a 3 car garage. Buellton brings home the bacon in terms of bang for your buck. 


3119 Tiana, Santa Ynez (3/2 on .78 of an acre) Listed at $749,999 and sold final for 701K. Fixer with a future. Steller buy in a great neighborhood with upward mobility.
