Wahoo! Its the first of December! It already feels like Christmas. Click here for the open houses this weekend. Even here at the beginning of the holiday season, there are quite a few to see. Click here for week ending rates. I'll be back on Monday with all the news. Have a great weekend!
I have heard from several readers that my links will not open. I am running them on Chrome and Mozilla and they open just fine. My guess is Explorer is the issue. I'm working on solving this but it will be next week before I get to any resolution. Explorer is a huge problem with many platforms I interface with on a daily basis so I don't even run Explorer any more and haven't for a few years now. If you have Chrome or Mozzila, the links should work fine. I'm working on Explorer going forward.
211 Menlo, Buellton (3/3 on .19 of an acre) $589,900 Same street I had two listings sell on earlier this year, 565K and 575K respectively. This one has new flooring, kitchen and bathrooms which neither of the earlier sales had. This accounts for the price difference. I can see some recent foreclosure history on this one. Daily Insiders will get more information on that.
856 Adobe Creek, Solvang (3/2 on 3.74 acres) $1,675,000 Even though this property just came on the market this afternoon, I had the pleasure of showing it today. I listed and sold the house across the street (855 Adobe Creek) last year for $1,750,000 and fell in love with this location during that time. Due to the superior location, upper end quality of construction, perfect sized parcels, unique privacy and big views, these homes can fetch these higher numbers. Very upscale and boutique little enclave near Fredensborg Canyon. This home is in mint condition with a lot of amenties todays buyer is looking for. Very dramatic on the one hand and practical on the other. Check out the extra garage which would also make a smashing guest house, office, studio or whatever. Lush grounds are drought tolerant but still very pretty. Thank you to listing agent Lynn Golden of Village Properties who pulled out all the stops and got me and my clients into this home with little to no notice. A true professional, working hard for her seller clients. Much appreciated Lynn!
